Great place!! We have purchased season passes the past few years and we will continue to do so. The park is very clean, the staff is nice and the rides are fun. Good variety of food choices and a lot of different lounge areas. It's a great place to spend the day at or just a few hours.

We wanted to visit a waterpark this summer and I found this one on the web. It looked nice, so we went for it! We were not disappointed! Well run, super clean, VERY friendly staff. Some people might complain about the $30 admission price, but we're originally from L.A. and used to outrageous $90 theme parks so this was actually... More

We had a blast! My kids were so excited to be here! My little experience every ride and over and over. We are so glad this place is here, because there's always something to do here even if you don't want to slide down the slides. Great family adventure!! Best summer ever!

We brought our four kids aged 8-6-4-2 for the night slide on Friday and Saturday during a vacation. Awesome slides for the bigger kids and an awesome area for the little guys. Compared to every other waterpark we've ever went to this one wasn't over crowded and the lines to get on the rides wasn't long.

We've gone here several times even when it's 90 degrees outside and it's just too chilly except for the very hottest of 100 degree days. Both times we went, our kids (6 and 4) were frozen within an hour and didn't want to get back in the water. It's really clean and well maintained and there are a lot of... More

Hi Jim, The water at Roaring Springs is heated. You can see the boilers on the roof of the wave pool building. We heat the water in the kiddie pool to about 80 degrees, and the water in the wave pool is also about 80 degrees, because we hold swimming lessons in there every morning. The coolest water is the...

I think it's RIDICULOUS that this water park does not allow families to bring sandwiches, snacks, fruit, etc. from their own home to try and save some $$. It's STUPID. Instead they want hardworking families on a budget to bend over and fork it over for their over-priced food! (On top of admission) Not enough shade either. And a lot... More

For families on a budget we have a whole page of discounted admissions, including daily specials Monday through Thursday of every week. We don't allow outside food into the park because we can't guarantee the safety of food stored... More

We have 3 adults & 5 kids ranging from 14 to 4 months old in our group. There are all kinds of different rides & slides; from exhilarating to peaceful, there really is something for everyone. Get here early if you want a table with shade!

Enjoyed our first trip here so much we went back the very next week. Don't take the negative comments at face value. First, plan ahead to get the best ticket price and avoid lines. There is a deal almost every day. I simply called the ticket counter and asked for advice on the quietest time of day. Outstanding customer service... More

We loved our visit Friday. Our kids have wanted to go since our visit in Nov2014 and they saw that Meridian had a waterpark. My sister lives here so this was on our to do list for this visit. Our kids 18, 13, and 9 year old all enjoyed the slides. We especially liked the lazy river. My husband was... More
