Kids had a blast. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly. Bathrooms could have used a little more care.

WAY too overcrowded. 20 min Line to pay for parking, 1/2 - 45 min line to get in the door, lines at all the slides, lines at all the food stands and a line to rent a locker. The wave pool was a disaster waiting to happen. Everyone keeps crashing into everyone else in both the wave pool and the... More

We visited on a warm Saturday in August. Knowing it would be crowded, we planned or arrival for mid-afternoon (2:30), thinking 4 hours should give us plenty of time to explore the park before they close. Upon entry, it was difficult to walk around. People packed into the park (walkways included) like sardines. Think of how it is to get... More

This is a nice water park which simply thinks it is bigger than it is. We went on a Friday in July. 2 booths taking parking fees from cars (outrageous to pay for parking after the high entry fee) caused long tailbacks to get in. Then huge queue to actually walk into the park - unmanaged so people cutting in... More

We traveled 2+ hours and visited Water Country on a Saturday in the middle of July. Of course the place was packed. Up until that day, it was probably the hottest day of the year. We went with over 25 people(adults & children) and rented the Party Deck. Parking: Yes, you pay for parking($5 regular/$20 preferred). We did preferred. Not... More

Fun in the sun for sure -- but has gone down hill since I went there 10+ years ago. One major disappointment was that they only had half the lazy river open -- it has one of the longest around but if you only use half, you are going around in short circles. The dump bucket area was great. Wave... More

This place is a joke. They charge stupid money to get in, then they charge for parking and THEN they make you wait in line forever to get into the park. The worst part of this whole place is the weight restrictions on the slides... they actually have scales at the top of some of the rides and weigh you.... More

went yesterday with family and friends for the first time; lots of fun things to do, very clean place. Waiting time for some rides is crazy long, staff is low, bored and tired probably from to much sun; takes like 1 min between every rider and if you have more than 40 people in front of you..don't wait; too many...

I want to start by saying that we booked this in advance on a Wednesday while we were vacationing in NH. We were excited because we had been to the Water Country in Virginia a few years ago and had a wonderful time...NOT SO here in NH!!! There were 8 of us so we rented a cabana. Now in Virginia...

I went to Water Country this past Sunday with my family. When we actually got to go on a slide after 45 min waits in line the rides were good. But the wait time in line, even when you pre-purchase tickets is rediculous. They check your bags upon entering which is good but have no way of checking people(ie. No... More
