Our grandchildren were ecstatic about the rides. The grandparents, on the other hand, felt that little consideration had been given to those who could not or were not able to remain in the water continuously. Very few chairs were available anywhere, and specifically near the exits while waiting for exuberant riders. It seems the park wants to portray a "Disney"... More

This was our second time visiting Raging Waves. We were able to get a deal on Groupon ($15 per ticket). The water park, overall is clean, but it really bothers me that it is nearly impossible to get a chair to put your things on. Occasionally, there a few chairs open by the wave pool, but never around the toddler... More

We were planning this trip for a while. I got a Costco deal- 2X2 full day passes+tube rental at $19.99 which sounded good. We arrived there on Tue, Jul 22nd a few minutes before 10:00 AM. There were a lot of cars going in. When we got to the gate we went straight into the Guest services to get tickets.... More

We took advantage of discount tickets and ended up going on a Saturday. We arrived at 2pm and stayed until closing at 7pm. We found the lines to be reasonable. The longest we waited was 30 minutes, with an average of 10 minutes. The food was good and prices within reason. $27 to feed 4 kids and 1 adult. Clean... More

Went here on a Sunday with family and friends to see if it lived up to the bad reviews. First off the park was very clean unlike another one up by Rockford. It is 30 bucks person to get in unless it is a kid under 48" Tall. You do have to rent a tube for 5 bucks and we... More

Welcome to summer! I have been a season passholder at Raging Waves Waterpark for four years. In my opinion, this is the best summer family entertainment in the area! First and foremost, this is a safe waterpark. I have witnessed a couple “saves” in the wave pool this summer, and the lifeguards are very alert and professional. If Raging Waves... More

I, my grown daughter, and 8 children ranging in age from 4 months to 17 years, went 2 consecutive days to Raging waves. The forecast had a chance of thunderstorms, but both days turned out to be nice. There were 2 nice areas for the under 5 crowd, with small slides and lots of splashing water. Adults were not allowed... More

We venture here once or twice a year and always have a great time. When we were there yesterday we started a list of all the things we like. First and foremost, its clean and looks brand new every year. There are very many life guards who seem well trained and keeping things safe. The food is good and there... More

Biggest and best water park in all of Illinois. Has a great wave pool. My Daughter buys an annual pass every year but I don't buy it because I had Melanoma a few years ago.

Great park to go to with the kiddos and friends. Kids had a wonderful time. My toddler ran her self ragged. The park has enough options for small kids to keep busy and teenagers to be entertained. Side note children under 48 inches pay same as a adult which I thought was a little steep. Good thing we used a... More
