First time since I was small to weeki wachee....and it was so much fun! The water was so cold as expected but once you get in its ok. Theres a floating dock that sits out toward deepest part of spring, its about 20 ft deep there so if you enjoy diving! We wanted to go kayaking but its booked up... More

Read about this place in the guide books & decided to make an effort to go whilst visiting Orlando. Were we glad - had a great day & much more relaxing than Disney etc. For $13 and free parking it was definitely a bargain. Spent all day there (till the thunder & lightning arrived). No huge crowds, the mermaid shows... More

I loved it here. What a great place to explore for $13. The spring itself is gorgeous and a perfect temperature to cool off from the heat. There are also waterslides which looked fun but I did not ride. There is a tiki bar and snack stands that had good food and drinks also at great prices. The boat ride... More

After reading such mixed reviews on this website, I wasn't sure what to expect. But I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I went in the morning on a weekday and it wasn't crowded at all. It was starting to get crowded by the time I left around 1pm. But I was able to see everything I wanted to (wildlife show, mermaid show... More

This is one of those old destinations that needs to be seen once.The classic mermaid show is enjoyable for all ages. The boat ride on the clear river is relaxing. Doesn't try to be Disney but it's simplicity is welcome.

Have been here 3-4 times in winter but this was the first in summer. Took my daughters and grandchildren for the day. They loved it. The spring was fresh, cool and clean to swim in on a hot day. The wading pool area was perfect for the 15 month old. Even the 6 year old liked it. They were too... More

We visited on a Saturday in August and it was very crowded. We waited 20 minutes near the entrance around 11am waiting for cars to leave the lot. Once in we waited about 45 minutes for the mermaid show. That being said I enjoyed the mermaid show and my 2 year old loved it. I imagine the experience would be... More

Weeki Wachee Springs is a well-maintained state park with very reasonable admission fees. This is old Florida and you will find it charming; I agree with another reviewer who called it nostalgic. Parking fills up quickly, so arrive early! This park opens at 9:00 am, which is nice. It will close at 5:30 pm. Perhaps the best part of this... More

Was looking for a fun, affordable day trip destination for the family and had my mind set on the springs. I Had always heard about them but was worried because of other reviews. Finally My husband, daughter and I decided to give the springs a shot, while preparing for the worse and hoping for the best. I can tell you... More

I was worried this was going to be cheesy. Went with a large group. It was really hot and muggy that day and very busy but it was a Saturday. We did the mermaids show which was cute. Little cheesy but cute. You cant see that anywhere else. Also the building was built in the 70's but there was a... More
