We have been going to Water Country for years. We get passes each year. If you go only two times during the season, the passes have paid for themselves. Tip: we buy our seasonal passes in August because they work for the remainder of the summer and in to the following year. Big money saver. The park tends to get... More

Was a fun place to be. The slides were great and the lines were fast. The staff were always keeping out a watchful eye for any unsafe incidents. The water pools for the smaller ones were enough to keep the kids happy while the adults sat for a break. Make sure you do keep an eye on your children as... More

Why would you NOT be open on August 31st, the last week before school starts for many children? Would not have thought to check their website to see if it's closed, because after all it IS August and not Labor Day weekend yet! Just assumed (foolish me) that it would be open.

Its a water park in New England, I get it, you have a short season but stop gauging your customers. Tickets are $38 per person must they really charge to park? $9.50 for a mystery meat cheeseburger that was inedible, $4 for an icee? The lines to wait for rides were 45 mins and there seems to be no measures... More

I went with my family in July and it was a terrible experience. Actually we did't get into the park. We didn't get the tickets online because we planned to buy it there, at the end it's not a big deal (we thought) But, when we got there, just for the parking it was like 25 minutes waiting and we...

Water country has changed. The lines go slower. We use to wait 5 minutes in line as a kid. Now you can expect a 30 minute wait to get to the top of the line. You should not have to pay for parking and also pay the price for the expensive ticket not even worth the price. Or pay $12... More

We went here with a large family group this August. We were lucky enough to find discount tickets for $26.99 regular $39.00 and Parking is $5 for general or $20 for upgrade to the gates. Save the $15 not that far of a walk. The park is very big with lots of different water slides. When we went in August... More

We visited Water Country as an alternative to our normal water park. We had a blast! The park is large with many attractions suitable for all ages. There is a wave pool, lazy river, many water slides and great feature for young children. We forgot our grandson's life vest so "rented" one for $10 - which was returned when we... More
