This is a great attraction for families. Once you are in there are different sections. There is a paddling pool and slides for the youngest. The pool with the slides and giant buckets for the family is great fun. There are also high slides you need bravery to complete, a beach with waves and a lazy river. For those without... More

We visited with our family on a weekday. We got to the park right at opening and hit the big slides first thing, before the lines got long. We were able to get in all of the major slides in our first 90 minutes in the park. Even later in the day, the lines were reasonable - we waited no... More

Visited on Monday August 17th and the place was packed. However, everbody in our group had fun. The younger kids enjoyed the wave pool, lazy river and all that Baboon Lagoon offered. The older kids enjoyed the variety of slides offered. But be warned, there are crazy long lines for those slides. If it wasn't for a two hour mid-day... More

Very clean and exotic water slides. The gift shop had everything I wanted. The food was affordable. The water was crystal clear, with no leaves floating around.

Zoombezi Bay is your average waterpark. I hung out with the younger kids in the calmer areas while my husband was with the older kids being brave and adventurous. The kids area was fine. There was an accident in the pool, so we had to evacuate the pool for about 30 minutes. A couple issues I had - the food... More

ABSOLUTELY APPALLED BY YOUR AWFUL BUSINESS! I bought tickets through my company for half off and apparently in the tiny fine print of the tickets they expired in June although the website said they were good through January. Only solution offered was $6 off original price even though I already paid $16.50 for each ticket. My brother recently died and... More

We did a day at zoombezi to see if we may want a season pass next year. The park is simply beautiful. The layout is supurb. We loved that you can take the lazy river to different parts of the park instead of walking. The wave pool in itself could have kept our attention all day but the slides were... More

I really like Zoombezi Bay. I go alot because I live in the area. But if you are planning a trip on the weekend and it's hot out, yes it will be packed but so will your neighborhood swimming pool. Great area for smaller children. But again if your going to go on a Saturday and it's 85 and sunny.... More

For a vacation at home away from home, Zoombezi is the best way. Took grandchildren for the day and they had a blast. It is entertainment for all ages. We had ages from 5 years to 74 years and all had a wonderful time. Spent 7 hours and felt like 2. I would highly recommend Zoombezi bay for a mini... More
