We had a great time! I brought my kids 10 and 8 . I would advise to get there at opening to get a chair or two. If you buy e- tickets or have free tickets you must visit customer service first or if you buy a groupon. The lazy river was nice as was the wave pool and the... More

If you are looking for a good way to spend time with your family on these hot summer days, look no further than Raging Waves Waterpark! This park truly delivers. As a a bit of a clean freak, I was blown away by the cleanliness of the park. There were no signs of trash or food lying around, as the... More

Glad I did not pay full price to go here. I missed the Groupon, but saw the discounted tickets at Costco. I had no idea how expensive waterparks had gotten. What happened to the days where you put a few quarters in the locker, they charged $10 for a small locker, are you kidding me?? I will leave my towels... More

Not worth it! This place must be making a killing because they let in a million people and only have a handful of staff to keep up with them. If you enjoy waiting in lines then you will have a blast. Other than that: beware. We got there right when they opened at 10 and by 2 we had only... More

The only thing I woul have done differently, is not rent the tube for $5. Really do not need it. The wave pool is a little dangerous if you do not have a tube. New rules she be put in place for that issue. All in all it was a wonderful day and we will go back again next summer!

Life guards are very good, constantly watching the water. Slides/pool/walk ways are very clean. Food was moderately priced. Would go back again. Cons: it's hard to walk around all day in bare feet on the concrete. They need benches at the exists of all the slides so parent can wait for their kids. Lockers are $10 but you get in/out... More

Spotless. Clean. Reasonably priced. Tons of places to chill. Lots of chairs/loungers for catching a few Rays/zzz's. Absolutely the cleanest water park I have ever been too!!! I didn't see ANYTHING on the ground. No food, wrappers, gum NOTHING! Water was cold but so is my pool at home. Almost everyday this spring/summer has been cloudy/rainy. Lots of slides and... More

Our family has gone twice this summer, once on a Tuesday and once on a Saturday. On the Tuesday the lines were really short! If you want to save money, pack a cooler and return to your vehicle to eat lunch. They will stamp your hand and then you can re-enter the park after eating. However, the food prices weren't... More

This is not a cheap day. It really surprises me the time that it closes for how much you pay to get in. You have to get there early if you want a decent chair location. Otherwise, you're gonna be stuck in the sun or on the beach, or both. Meager food choices, don't even think about gluten free options.... More
