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!!

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.

Love this Park! Extremely clean and well maintained! Plenty of attentive staff. The rides are the best !! I thought the lines would be so bad we would leave after lunch..stayed for 6 1/2 hrs...couldn't get enough of the fun! And there are slides and attractions for ALL ages!

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

Thank you for your review. We do have great picnic areas for families and you can bring as much as you like. Maybe save a spot for some fried dough or Dippin Dots. We're happy you came and enjoyed your experience! We hope you come again as part of the cooler posse :) More

Our special-needs school group visited Water Country on a weekday in June and it was a great experience for our students, thanks to the helpful and accommodating Water Country staff. All our students have autism; a visit to a busy water park can be a pretty overwhelming experience for many of them. But the Water Country staff was kind, patient,... More

Just went to Water Country for the second time, living in Dover and working in Portsmouth you would think that we would go more often. It was a lot of fun and we were able to ride every slide, the lines weren't bad at all even with it being 4th of July weekend. The only downfall was that they ran... More

We just got back from Water Country and my advice is don't go. So many bad things about this place. We turned into the parking lot on a sunny Sunday and waited in line for over 38 minutes before we could park. They charge for parking and have inexperienced teens taking the money. This is really stupid as they should... More

Thank you for your review and we always appreciate feedback. We do apologize for the wait that you experienced while parking, to alleviate lines we will be adding 2 more lanes, one of which will be an express lane, bolstered by 3 additional parking attendants. We take water safety very seriously and currently have an excellent safety rating. Water Country... More
