Our fourth trip to Whales Tale this past week and again it was Awsome! Family of 6 and our extended family always has a blast there! Park is clean and has LOTS of great rides and pools. Something for everyone! Yet we feel it is small and safe enough to let older kids off on their own. Staff is very... More

This place never disappoints. The wave pools are amazing and it seems that every year there is something new. If you're planning a trip in this area, you have to save a day for Whales Tale.

Such an amazing experience for all ages. Has great group rates. Employees made special arrangements to give us a big enough area to have the whole family together. Look forward to heading back next year

Come after 3pm and you can come back for free the next day! Beware of the pool and hot tubs, they were filthy and the staff literally just stood there and looked at trash floating in the hot tub even after we complained to them about it. Apparently, the "lifeguards" were too cool to pick trash out of the water... More

We are not the typical visitors you find at a water park as we are senior citizens. But the wife loves pools and water, so we go. We followed the rather ominous suggestion on the Whale’s Tails web page – opt for the cooler, cloudy day. With temps around 72 degrees and partially cloudy on a Thursday, there was a... More

Very clean and well managed water park. Perfect for all ages and not crowded when I recently visited. Definitely worth attending as those in your party/family will have no trouble enjoying everything.

This waterpark offers something for every level from floating on the lazy river, to riding the waves in the waves pool to shooting down any number of tube like structures, some of them completely enclosed. And for the little kids, there's a beautiful wading pool that is very inviting. The various features are beautiful and there are lots of lounge... More

Very clean, family park. Family of 5 visited for a day. Lazy river was the beginning and and of the day and was just right for a cool off. Most enjoyable ride was a tie between a the 2 person float that begins with a tunnel, drops into a chute, up and almost out the top then a wild backwards... More
