Raging Rivers is a short drive up the Great River Road from Alton, IL. This small waterpark along the Mississippi has a wave pool, lazy river, and several different types of slides. It is great for the whole family. Food and drinks can be a bit expensive, so bring a cooler and picnic in your car and go out of... More

This was a great day trip on a hot day! It is a smaller park, but is fun. The prices are very steep, but ok for an occasional trip

They have a great area for little ones that is gated as well as accommodating older individuals. The park is small enough that you don't have to worry about older kids being on their own for a while.

This water park is great for beginner water park goers. It is small enough for your Tweens to run around. The slides are easy for young riders. I'm not sure if the park is worth paying full price to get in. I only go if I have free or discount tickets. Raging Rivers offers free tickets for elementary students who... More

The water park is fun day when its hot. Find coupons can be pricey. Small water park good for a summer day when its hot and muggy. Kids up to age 11 seem to get more enjoyment but teens will enjoy it too.

We have been to Raging Rivers a few times... with kids and without. This time we decided to do a birthday party package. It was great! My son really felt special on his day. We got there early so we missed most of the long lines for the slides. We had pizza, free drinks, souvenir cups for all of us,... More

Raging Rivers is a summertime treat for our family! Located right on the Great River Road, it's a nice drive getting there too. The park is incredibly CLEAN and usually not over crowed (big plus) and there is usually a breeze thanks to the Mississippi River right across the road. TAKE SUN SCREEN!! There is an adventure for every age... More

We recently took my daughter and a few of her friends, along with our son to Raging Rivers for the day. We live less than an hour away and we have always gone to Six Flags St. Louis for waterpark fun. I really feel we have been missing out on a hidden gem. This park is not the biggest, but... More

Our adult family and young grandchildren had a great time. The water park is great for all ages. The food and drink is reasonably priced appealing to all ages.

I spent a weekday here with my two kids, ages 11 and 12. I was impressed by how clean the park is and it wasn't overly crowded even though it was 90+ degree day. The view of the river was also very nice, but really you could only see it from the tops of the water slides and from the... More
