I did bring my 11 years old nephew to this small water park during summer... Was nice; he really loved it... I thought it was very small with not many slides but he really enjoyed the waves pool the most... Expensive for what it's offer but great for kids I supposed!!! Fast food all around and best to go with... More

We spent the day at Whales Tale at the end of August with our kids (10 and 13) and loved it. The park is a great size - lots of slides and pools but not too big. There is even a heated pool and hot tubs which we have not seen at any other water park. The oldest loved the... More

My 8 year old daughter and I spent a lovely day here. Although she was still a bit too small for some of the rides, what we did go on was so much fun. There are a lot of nice areas to spend time at. We liked the Wave Pool and the pirate area, but spent a lot of time... More

We went to this water park with our family, ages from 10 to 70. There was something for us all from scary rides to wave pool, and a lovely area for younger children as well. We were there for 4 hours on a very hot day, the queues were under 20 mins for the big attractions and less for the... More

A fun family water park. Lot's of different activities for everyone. 11 waterslides, huge wave pool, and a 1/4 mile lazy river. (http://whalestalewaterpark.net/attractions/) Plan to arrive early to stake out an umbrella. We found a shady spot under trees on the banks of the lazy river. The water was cold but once you get moving it'lll warm up. Lot's of... More

My nine year old daughter said this was her favorite water park. She was able to enjoy all the rides. From an adults perspective it was fun with some room for improvement. The facilities were clean and comfortable. Staff of mostly young people were friendly and attentive. While it's not quite a mega water park like Disney it certainly did... More

We were in neighboring Franconia for a few days and the weather hit the mid 80's so we came over because i had a discount coupon in a NH Funpass book (must get that!) I knew most attractions in Lincoln and the surrounding area are very kitschy and outdated but we're not regular water park goers so I felt we'd... More

We recently went to Whale's Tale with my wife and two daughters (ages 9 and 11). We have been going once annually for the last several years, and I used to go annually as a kid in the late '80s and early '90s. We always have a really good time, and compared to other major water parks in the region... More

I find other waterparks in area to be too busy, too many rides. This park has the right amount of rides, easy to get from one to the other, not crowded together. Water was a bit cold, as expected, but start out in the warm water pool just to get wet then move on to the other rides.

With our 2 and 5 yr olds, we weren't interested in the big slides, but there was still plenty of choice for us. The restaurant food was limited to fast food. We should have brought a picnic. The lifeguards were friendly. We got there early and there was plenty of seating around the different pools. There were free life jkts... More
