Disappointed that during this closed event, the children's area of the water park was not open due to lack of personnel to supervise. There was a very large group of kids who missed out on the fun.

They have done a very good job of making the place fun for both young children, older children, and grandparents. The lines take a little long, but that is to be expected on hot days. Get there early to stake out a place to keep all your towels and other things; you will want shade if you can get it.... More

I hold out for a great offer on their season pass deals. I have a little 2 year old, and kids less than 3 years old, are free... so it is a great option to visit midweek, and when we have an extra hour or so, to introduce the little one to some of the younger-themed attractions. Chicken tenders are... More

We went on a Wednesday to avoid long waits. It didn't seem to matter. Wait times varied from 10 mins to almost a half hour per ride. Also, you aren't allowed to swim in the deep end of the wave pool, which seems odd. If you have really little guys, you may want to think twice. Even the wave pool... More

If you are expecting a heated pool, do not go here. We drove up to the parking lot ($10) and inquired about the temperature. But decided not to try it out.

It is definitely a great outing for the whole family. We rented 2 Tiki Cabanas but it was not necessary. The lazy river is too cold and the kids didn't use their inner tubes exept to play on the grass. We went on a week day so there was no line at the food concessions but on a busy day... More

Took my 8 year old grandson and daughter to Waterworld in concord. This is a very nice place, clean and well organized. Lifeguards aplenty so finding a nice spot with chairs and shade I parked myself and then let my Grandson go, with him checking in with me throughout the day. I felt that he was safe and sound with...

Love going to Water World. Every year we have season passes and really enjoy the nice park and friendly atmosphere. The food is good and tasty (might not be the healthiest, but oh well) Can't bring in your own so plan on a picnic in the parking area or eat before you come in. Great family place and great for...

Bought the season pass at the end of last year which took us over the the whole season this year. For the price of 2 trips we bought season passes, What a great deal!! We could go as many times as we wanted. Just pay for parking about 10 bucks a day and lazy river here we come! First we... More

Watched the park security yell at a family today. Not sure what was happening but you should NEVER represent yourself that way when you work for a company. The security guards name is Jake and his behavior was appalling!
