I have no idea why _anyone_ would give a bad review for this wonderful attraction. For someone to think that a major Summer attraction like a water park would have short lines all the time is just plain bonkers. Water parks, amusement parks, beaches, and other Summer attractions are going to be crowded - that is what Summer is all... More

What a waste. I read the info on the park before I went. What it was like was a whole other story. There were no tubes at any of the attractions. Multiple employees throughout the park told me I had to rent a tube. The lines were so slow and long that after 4 hours I had only been down... More

A Great Water Park tucked away SOMEWHERE in Portsmith. I definitely could'nt find it twice without GPS, but excellent fun for kids who love water! Long lines may discourage you so remember to enjoy the journey and not the destination and have some laughs with your kids, while enduring the lines! Great Fun!

We decided to take a day off of traveling for water fun and stopped here. We had a wonderful time. We rented a cabana since we were told it can be rather crowded and you might not get a place especially with young kids who may need a nap. The cabana was very nice and clean as well as private!...

The only reason I am giving a four star review is that the lines to get life jackets for the kids were huge...it took close to an hour to get two jackets :( if you have your own..... bring it and avoid the line. Apart from that it was fantastic, clean, fun....we will be back!!

Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve flow of any lines including those at rentals. Bringing your own Coast Guard approved life jacket is a great idea and always and option! Thank you for visiting and have a great rest of your summer! More

The park is very very crowded and it seems the staff is over whelmed.. We had fun but the food and parking was very expensive. I would be prepared to open the wallet. I will chose the water park in Candia NH over this one.. Alot less people and the staff is friendly and its affordable.

The rides are pretty decent and the lines are what are expected At most parks during summertime. They could do a better job keeping the wave pool and the bathrooms clean. Bring your own food they have a great area to eat. BEWARE OF THE SEAGULLS! They are trained to attack. Serious if you are a people watcher you will... More

Thank you for your review. The seagulls can definitely be entertaining and watching your food is important, otherwise it will be for the birds :-/ We hope you visit again! Have a great day and thanks again for your review. More

We always avoided Water Country when our kids were younger because we imagined an untamed teenager nightmare with unwatched kids running all over the place slamming our little ones to the ground. With my kids now 8, 10 and 12 we decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise! Maybe it's because we got there early, maybe because... More
