We had an awesome day at Water World! We visited the water park from out of town with our 3 year old son and his 8 and 10 year old cousins. They were all able to enjoy the park because there are areas for all age groups. We purchased the admission ticket that included the Pharaohs Feast buffet and considered... More

We drove up from the Albuquerque area last week and went to Waterworld for our 8th time. It was better than ever this year.

Clunky website: can't purchase more than six tickets at a time. They make it very difficult to purchase "upgrades" - something you WANT consumers doing! And the busiest ride had many empty seats despite the presence of full "singles" line. Two notches below Disney's Typhoon Lagoon - the gold standard of water parks.

We visited Water World and loved it. There are tons of slides and the huge wave pool and the other huge pool. We got to ride all the rides as the lines were light and enjoyed the fun. The park is big and hilly, so wear water shoes or flip flops to prevent too much damage to your feet. The... More

The attractions are average for a water park. but there is a lack of organization and communication. I seemed to get different information from each person I talked to. It is also very expensive.

My husband and I took our 5 year old, and we all had a great day. He's not 48 inches, so I can't vouch for any of the thrill rides, but he had lots of fun in both wave pools and the Wally World kids area. Also, it's probably worth packing in your food. We had no trouble finding a... More

I have lived all over the U.S., the best water park is Buches Garden's Water Country U.S.A. (I've never been to Orlando water parks) in Williamsburg, VA. This water park is better than the one at Elitch Gardens, both look very tired, but fun for what it is.

I am in my mid 20s and come to water world with my friends is always fun. It is good to get the family 4 pack and buy your tickets at king soopers before coming. Water world has than most water parks and that I think is what keeps it fresh. Some of the lines could go faster because the... More

The staff was very helpful. The food at this park is less than desirable. The rides were a lot of fun. The Mile High Flyer was a blast. The only watercoaster I have ever experienced. A great concept. The park was very clean. It is a little confusing getting around this park even with a map if you don't frequent... More
