If you're looking to stand in line for hours for the biggest, latest and greatest, proceed to Orlando. If you have a great appreciation for plenty of shade, quick (if any) lines, lifeguards posted EVERYWHERE, clean bathrooms and polite, attentive staff - this might be right up your alley. We had 3 kids (5,8,9) in our group and they had... More

We never waited in a line.The park is clean but does need some updates. Out of the 8 waters slides that are offered , 3 were not... More

While this water park is not crowded, it needs to be updated. Paint is chipping on the water rides, and uneven walkways make trip hazards throughout the park. Lifeguards here still assist young riders , but today's rides are designed to allow children to exit unassisted which is much safer. I know they are trying to revitalize this area, but... More

What a wonderful day. It was not crowded.. There were no lines at all. We went during the week and got there at opening time 10 am. My granddaughters are 4 and 8 years old. They have a wonderful kiddie area in water with tube slides, and other water affects. She also loved the wave pool with or without the... More

I just got off the phone with the general manager. He was rude and is the sole reason my family of 6 will not visit wild waters this summer. If that is how he treats customers your business is doomed.

We originally went to Silver springs for the boat ride, by the time we got there they were sold out. Having 3 hours before we could check in to our hotel, we spotted the water park across the parking lot. We've never had so much fun. The park was not crowded, the slide with the alligator was great , and... More

Prices were lower last year as they renovated the park ready for the real grand opening. This summer Wild Waters is back to its ole glory. If you live in the area or you are just visiting, a season pass is well worth the price. Open only for the weekends until June. Starting in June they will open full time.... More
