This park is great. All the rides are fun and you can find attractions for any age. We went on most of them. The roller coaster water slide being our favorite. The food stands out as being better than most parks and it is at a reasonable price too. All in all I hope to come back soon.

Fun for kids but not a lot off rides. Go after 4 for half price. Not something to spend the whole day at because it is too small. You can bring in a cooler of food and drinks which is awesome to save money.

First trip to this park, we checked in and they told me that I needed a plastic swimming diaper. I was not prepared other than the Huggies swim diaper I had. It was no problem at all, the staff member handed me a proper plastic diaper and said it was free. I thought that was helpful. The park was super... More

Took my family there this past weekend. Everyone had a blast - there was plenty to do for all the kids (which ranged in age from 5 -15). Nice and clean park , friendly staff. It was nice to be able to bring a cooler into park to save a few bucks on drinks. As our day ended, the kids... More

Price was $12 to get in, due to the fact the wave pool and 2 slide were down. BUT this didnt really make a difference as there were more than enough other slides to keep us and the kids busy. We had fun and will be back. I was very impressed with the life guard staff. These young people ALL... More

I'm a grandma with 15 grand kids ranging from 18 years to 6 months, The best thing about Magic Waters is that there's something for all of us. The park is clean, well run, and they have really good special offers available at various times. Being able to bring in a cooler is a big plus with a family as... More

Very nice waterpark run by the city of Rockford Park District but the lines are so long that it takes for ever to ever get to ride the rides which are very short. All that said its still waiting on a hot summer day yet they could bring the price down from the $24 per person to get in. Remember... More

Great place! I really liked that they offer free lifejackets for children. My family and I really liked the lazy river. The actual rides had really long waiting times because people can get speed passes and cut ahead of you in line. At one point i lost who I was with and went to the service desk and asked if... More
