Had a wonderful time on a really hot St.Louis day. Loved the view of the river, the professional staff, the reasonable prices, thrilling rides, and friendly people. This is a hidden gem that reminds me of a country resort tucked away in the middle of nowhere. So much fun.

My husband took myself and my niece here for the first time. It started out nice. We went swimming etc. There was this slide that you go on with an intertube. I was maybe 6 or 7 months pregnant, I waited in line with my husband and niece. I guess the wait was too much for my niece and she... More

Like any water park you are going to do a lot of up hill walking, the biggest issue I had was the rides down. You feel like you went back to 1994 in a time machine just for this park. The neatest thing they have here is 1 of those funnel dump things, whew buddy!! If the park would allow... More

My grown daughter and I spent another wonderful annual day at Raging Rivers. The staff are helpful and friendly and the water park is well maintained and clean. You can find lounge chairs in the sun or shade, whatever your preference. Any food or beverages ordered are prepared with a smile. The views from the water park of the Grafton... More

We had a great time with our 8 year old son. He enjoyed many areas of the waterpark. The layout is nice. There is not a lot of shade so be sure to pack extra sunscreen. The price is a little steep (about $30/per person), but we were in the area and enjoyed our day there.

Had a fun time. The prices were reasonably. $5 for parking, great! Not like six flags $20/30 for parking. Low cost to get in, even lower if u catch a deal. Food taste n cost, ok. Good price on locker n tube rental. Lazy river is horribly small. Loved the wave pool. It's a small place, but ok for the... More

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.
