This place REALLY needs a face lift. It's not dangerous, and it is still fun. I don't believe anything new has been added in quite some time, and what is there looks old.

I went to Raging Waters in the summer of 2013 to check it out for myself, and I could say they do have a variety of cool slides. High Extreme II, Drop Out, Vortex, The Speed Slides, the Bermuda Triangle, Neptune's Fury, Tunnel of Terror and the other family raft ride were all a lot of fun. My gripes: Single... More

ok - I read all the reviews before booking this for my son's 12th birthday....that being said, we had a great time. I read the reviews about it being "crowded, outdated, expensive, and long lines".... so here's what we did... 1)I reserved the last weekend of summer....kids were all back in school so we didn't have to deal with the...

Not impressed. Dirty, very limited numbers of showers, no towel hire, no where no get changed, people having to change in very dirty toilets and around the park. The water was freezing despite it being at the end of an unusually hot week. Safety procedures, equipment and supervision very poor. The general site is run down, not just because it's... More

Went midweek to avoid long lines. Would never go here on weekends with family unless your pay double to include fast pass. Many of the rides need maintenance and painting. Looks and feels outdated. Bathrooms are filthy. Cabanas are expensive considering how basic and spartan they feel. For $150 you should get higher end chairs and privacy.

I still after all these years living close to Raging Waters can't get enough of it. I fell like a big kid every time i go. I love the placement of the park in the San Dimas Canyon area. Love it.

Our family of five visited Raging Waters on Sunday August 17th during a visit to Southern California. I should say I did visit this park about 5 years ago and had a pretty good time. We thought a visit to the water park might be a nice break from Disneyland. Big mistake as this place was way too crowded. It... More

I expected much more when they say its the biggest on the west coast. Maybe it is but the waterparks in east of San Fran and the Silverwood waterpark in Idaho are much much better. However those are nowhere near so this is what you get, not sure of other choices in SoCal. Prices are reasonable, but tired of paying... More

I went on 8/16 and brought 15 of my friends for a day at the waterpark. I would probably never go back unless it was during the week. Expect over an hour wait on EVERY slide!! Even the lazy river was packeked and couldnt get any intertube for over 30 mins! They really should do a cutoff of tickets or... More

It's really funny when you read the negative reviews from people who went on a weekend or peak weekday in the middle of the summer. You really want to avoid this place for most of August. This is an area of S. California where millions of people live. Going in the peak of summer is a bad idea. Best times... More
