Once a year, our entire family makes a trek up to Old Forge to enjoy Water Safari. Each time I come, I'm always happy when I leave. Where else can you ride tons of water slides, have fun on nostalgic amusement park rides, and wander among fairyland characters for $25 (if you use the discounted tickets from Tops). When you...

I've been coming up to water safari for a few years now, 2-3 times a year. I've always had a great time - whether it was a single lady or a married woman with a baby/toddler. There's activity for everyone. The last time I went was July 29th, the waiting lines according to my husband weren't long. The water was... More

We like old-school things, and this park is very old-school. You won't find the fastest land rides or fifty billion rules to follow. They sort of leave it to you to make sure you hang on to some rides and use common sense. Bring a cooler in if you want. Wear shoes or don't. (The only land rides that require... More

We visited on June 27, 2014. This was our first trip to the park, so I can only compare it to what I've already experienced: Darien Lake in Darien, NY and SeaBreeze in Rochester, NY. I'm rating EF higher than I would the other two above, for a few reasons. First, the size of the park is much more manageable... More

I live in northern NY so this place is a given every year. I was raised loving water safari and that's how I'm raising my daughter.......I even turned my husband into a diehard.

The kids love this park and all the water rides. I think they should update some of the attractions tho and maybe add a few more for adults. There aren't really a lot if carnival type rides which would add to the allure. Overall the pArk is clean and nice and we continue to go every summer.

I love Water Safari. I worked there a couple summers in my late teens which was pretty fun especially since I had free tickets for friends and family. My boyfriend and I love it here though. It might not be the biggest water park, but it is a lot of fun and well kept/clean. This is so much fun to... More

Rides and attractions are very old school. The water park is really nice. Parking is not good. We bundled the price with our camp (Old Forge Resort) and took advantage of the Siesta Pass to get an extra half day. Overall, not too bad.

We go here every summer. They have wet rides for all ages. They have small water slides for little kids that resemble the adult water slides. There's a bunch of dry rides & a small petting zoo. Plenty of staff & lifeguards around. The lifeguards in the children's slide area are very helpful with the kids getting on & off... More
