We took 4 children to this park - ages 7, 4, 4 and 2 - and they all loved it. The kids area is perfect with small slides they can go down by themselves and it is contained enough that the kids won't "wander" off. The only downfall to this park, is the large waterslides use a very large 4... More

I've taken my 15 month old TWICE this summer. It wears him out (so he sleeps great!), but most importantly, he has a BLAST! He just lights up and smiles and laughs. My husband and I took turns catching him at the bottom of the kiddie slide in Wally World (the little kid area).... and his smile was just HUGE.... More

You can't go wrong with a water park. Water World is a great way to spend the day with family and friends. You need to be there as soon as the doors open because by mid-afternoon you have to wait in line for the slides. The wave pull is fun, but I don't recommend little kids going in. Lot's a... More

We have lived near Water World for 20+ years and I had never gone with the grandkids. I was worried I would be the only over 40, over weight, under sun tanned grandmother in the park and have nothing to do. I was so wrong. We had a blast with kids and grand kids. The park was not over crowded... More

We went to Water World on a Friday there was so many lines that we didnt ride to many rides I mean 45 mins to ride a ride was one wait time. I know its busy but it was crazy. We waited in line to get our locker and tube rentals for 45 mins it was insane. We bought some... More

We bought the half day admission and had we time to ride everything we wanted to, the lines weren't too bad, and we had a blast. However one flaw is they make you carry tubes up hills unless you pay for premium.

We have been season pass holders for years, but our recent visit was extremely frustrating. The biometric entry works about half the time for season pass holders, and Water World really should go back to the photo season passes. Today, my son's finger wouldn't register at the entry, not the first time for him or any of us, and a... More

Tickets are discounted if you go to the local Colorado supermarket--cant remember the name but it's like King Super or something. This water park is massive!! Really need a 2 day admission to do everything. We didn't have the greatest day but not completely b/c parks fault but weather played a part. We got there early and dropped our stuff... More

The entrance fee is high for what you get. The minute you get in be prepared to pay extra for everything from a place to sit, tubes, expedited lines and lockers. If you go bring a lunch, the food service here is run like a Turkish bazaar. Very overpriced, unorganized, slow and not that great! They would be better off... More

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Unfortunately, it seems like you didn't have a great experience visiting our water park. It appears you rented a cabana as full priced gate admission is $40.99/per person, and that's without using any of the discounts that are available & specified on our website. Regarding ride closures, we apologize for... More

That simple equation is true; this is amazing. Not only is there TWO wave pools, but there is also a lot of rides. This includes water slides, a warming pool, a lazy river, and MORE. Because of it's size, there is a ton of things you can do. If you happen to visit Denver during the summer, I recommend that... More
