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

Was very excited to have Wild Waters open, not just for campers or park visitors but for all the Silver Springs residents . All seemed to enjoy it especially during the excessively hot days. Reasonable cost.

Local news states that our long-time WaterPark in Ocala, Florida will NOT reopen due to politics and reported financial concerns over updating and maintaining it. I felt it important to pass on this news since I gave this place a review months ago with specifics on the new management with phone numbers and I know some families travel long distances.... More

Park was nice. Good for little kids and teens to have fun. Pretty cheap, clean, good food, good looking lifeguards, very friendly, fun wave pool, nice slides, clean bathrooms, warm water for showers, get your hand stamped and can eat your own food outside of park if not wanting to pay for food at wild waters.

Wild Waters is a wonderful place for the family to spend a day. Much needed repairs and renovations are finishing up. The park is older and does not have the large thrill slides of newer parks that teens would like, however it is a great place for families with younger children and the smaller size makes it more manageable for...

The park charges $10 for adults even if you only watch your child and don't use the park. Kids are $5. Not all of the play/slides were open and seems older.
