Waited in lines all day, even to get food was 1 1/2 hours. What a waste, don't bother with this place. Waste of time & money!

Brief description on how our day went on Wednesday August 14th 2014 1) Arrived early, around 9:30AM, park opens at 10AM Parking spot was very close, and checking process went smoothly. Once the park opened up, I refused to pay $10 non-refundable fee for locker rental, I kept my small items with me in a sealed plastic bag. 2) With... More

I am giving Raging Waves 3 stars with the thought that it could readily be 5 with some easy fixes. Raging Waves (RW) proclaims itself to be the largest water park in Illinois. While that sentiment may be meant to entice, the reality is that it feels more like an overly spread out theme park and not a water park... More

The wave pool here is very unsafe without inner tube. Problem? You HAVE to pay in order to get one and the lifeguard will yell at you if you do not have a yellow band. When I went into the wave pool there was this HUGE clog of tubes in he back. I got stuck under tubes, between tubes, and... More

Water park has numerous slides for all ages. Wave pool, lazy river, sand area and food concessions are excellent. A day at the park is great for young, teen, families and seniors. Don't miss out on a fun day.

Terrible customer service. Granted they had no electricity but no one wanted to answer questions. Security was rude When I asked to speak to a supervisor. Guests are rude to eachother. Not worth the cost unless you have a groupon or living social deal. Will not be returning in the future. You cant pay me to come back.

Expensive to get in, unless you buy a Groupon or Living Social deal. Once in they keep it impeccably clean. Once in a while you'll run across trash that inconsiderate idiots throw around but they really try to keep up on it. Down to having someone walking around scrubbing sets off the concrete. Food is not as pricey as six... More

I'll start of by saying, we plan on returning again and next summer will probably purchase summer passes. With that said, here are my thoughts: Proximity: It can't be beat for the suburbs, it is close and right off the highway (5-10 miles). Cost: The cost is a little high, but they always have deals going and it seems that... More

We arrived right at 10am when the park opened on a weekday and the lines were short until around 12 or 1. After that, there were significant waits for the rides, so it was disappointing to waste so much time in lines. Everything is very clean. Even the bathrooms at the end of the day were as clean as they... More
