We arrived for the reduced "twilight" admission for the last 3 hours opening (3pm-6pm) and it was the perfect amount of time to enjoy the park. The look on my husband face going down the Avalanche was priceless!

It really made us laugh to read about your husband's expression on that Avalanche -- that's definitely one of our more exciting rides! Thanks a million for spreading the word about us, and we hope to get the chance to welcome you back before the summer's up. All the best, The WaterWorks Park Family More

I was there with my wife and 2 young boys, ages 8 and 6. Both are at least 48" tall (at this park that is critical or they can only ride with an adult on tube rides, unless the young one is okay with doing the kiddo slides and hanging out with kids in diapers. The under 48" slides are... More

Thanks for your compliments about our friendly lifeguards and twilight discount, too -- we'll be sure to share those with our whole team.

Was greatest by very rude lady in the ticket booth telling me I had to pay the 19.95 fee if I wanted to be on the premises! Not even allowed to just watch her reasoning was they wouldn't be able to tell who had paid! Why not put bracelets on people that pay problem solved!

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed about this, Barb -- it's a longstanding policy that it is an entrance fee, not a ride fee. That said, this should have been explained to you in the friendliest possible way, and we're truly sorry if this wasn't the case. We hope you'll consider coming back again soon -- with all... More

It's water fun for kids but places to sit for the adults. Good thing it's so warm in the sun since the water is quite cold. The children can't resist however. Take snacks for the car afterward as the food is a bit spendy. If you arrive in your suit, dry off and plan to drive home sitting on towels... More

This place is OK for Redding. It beats the heat on a hot summer night when entertaining the grandkids from the Pacific Northwest who hardly ever see the sun. This park is 30+ years old and overrun by 100s of kids so, of course, the restrooms do not look pristine clean and, of course, kids get over excited and rude... More

I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs and I have an hour glass figure and they seriously stopped me to ask if I was pregnant before a ride!!! My waist keasuremt is a 29. I understand I'm not tiny but I certainly don't look pregnant. The park is tiny and only the female workers were nice. And there weren't many of those.

Not a great waterpark, but some relief from the heat. The green dragon slide is new and the fastest one of the four individual slides. I'm still annoyed they couldn't just hand me my $2 deposit for my locker key instead of serving all 10 kids getting ice cream (one group that tied up all three counter people). I should... More

My kids and I had a good time. For the price of everything we could have went to six flags it seems like for two slices of pizza and two sodas it was 17 dollars. They did not have alot of slides that the kids could go on but they had fun on the ones they could.
