Had a great time with the ladies from Church. Very reasonably priced and beautiful scenery! Could not tell you were close to the highway. Loved the scenery on the highway, water as far as the eye could see. Easy to get to!

The scenic views and family fun at this outstanding waterpark make it a must-visit destination. The park is spotless and it is obvious safety is their first priority. The well-staffed lifeguards pay close attention to the guests with particular care for small children. My daughter enjoyed both the thrill rides and relaxing attractions like the wave pool and Endless River.... More

This park was great fun. I thought it was going to be bigger, but there is still plenty of fun for hours. They have pools/slides for little kids and big kids as well.

Raging Rivers is normally a favorite for folks in the Grafton and Alton area. It has about 5 big water slide rides. My favorite is the Swirlpool. There are two of them, one is covered and one open. There are also a couple other "big" slides that are more geared towards a strong swimmer, but there are also plenty of... More

We stumbled upon this gem of a water park. We were not planning on doing any water activities but thought "why not give it a try". The park exceeded our expectations. In fact, we stayed well into my child's nap time to enjoy the day. There was plenty of chairs (in & out of shade), different areas to explore, food... More

The title is just from a 'Mom's' perspective. I think my girls, age 3 and 10, would say Fun! Fun! Fun! The park was 'just right'-not too big that you felt your kids would get lost, not too small where they would get bored. My 3 yr old enjoyed several parts of the park, including the wave pool (hold their... More

Park was super clean well attended but not over crowded which was nice. Not huge water slides here but great overall water park (wave pool, lazy river,... More

We were staying in St. Louis, MO. and found the brochure for this place at our hotel. We went here on July 5th it was my husband and I along with our children, ages: 14 & 4. It was a really nice ride to get here and it was right along the Mississippi River; very easy to find. The price... More

Great water park! We love this park for a few reasons. First its very clean! You can walk around barefoot and not worry about hurting your feet. Great for families as its not overcrowded. Lines are never too long. Refreshment prices are very affordable. I feel like I am at a pool with some great slides and an awesome wave... More
