Great fun

Great place to spend a hot summer day with your grand children. A bit pricey, but worth it for the fun we had.

We enjoy everything about the place! Love how you can take coolers in and just spend a relaxing day there and not really worry about the older kids running free!

I went to the Magic Waters water park with my extended family. It was 20 of us in total, so as it is expected we are always very careful in planning what we want to do since we don't often have the opportunity to get all together as a family. We decided to make reservations way in advance and later... More

Magic Waters is a great place to take kids in the summer. Tons of slides for all ages. There is a huge wave pool and lazy river.

We go every year in July with my entire family. I reserve 2 cabanas by the wave pool. There are several padded chairs,ba few tables and a full screen around the cabana. The rental also includes tubes, water & pizza voucher. You can bring your own coolers with food, drinks etc but no alcohol. We drive about an hour to... More

Although it will be crowded whenever you go, it was still fun for the kids. The wave pool was a fun experience, as were the water cannons and giant bucket that dumps water once every so often. Lazy river is relaxing, but short.

My husband, son and I went to Magic waters for a special day and boy were we disappointed. The facilities were filthy, the water was very dirty and the crowd was so large you couldn't even swim without someone bashing into you. I was worried that we were going to get sick from the non sanitary conditions. The bathrooms were... More

I was pleasantly surprise! It was small but functional my kids had fun ages 16 through 6. Oh and my husband had fun too. We got their early and there was enough space for seating. Another great feature is that they let you bring one cooler/ food container per family. Even if you didn't want to bring any food then... More
