I took my almost 12-year-old granddaughter here on spring break at her request for a birthday adventure. Our main objective was the Air & Space Museum, but the water park was the icing on the (birthday) cake. :) Even though it was just she and I, and I didn't care to do the water slide thing, she had a blast....

This water park is off the beaten path unless you are going from Portland, OR., to the Central Oregon Coast (or someplace in between). It is definitely worth the drive from Portland to McMinnville. The drive itself is beautiful through the Yamhill Valley. There are several wineries along the way. The first thing one sees approaching the water park is... More

Brought my daughter in for a day of fun during spring break and we were pleasantly surprised! The concept of the waterpark is unique and awe-inspiring! Imagine boarding a real boeing 747 plane atop the building and make your way through a well designed and engineered loops of slides, 4 main slides-each with unique turns, loops and suspense! Equally enjoyable... More

This really is a unique water park. Launching into the 4 larger slides out the exit doors of a rooftop 747 is an experience you really can't get anywhere else. Even the line to the slides (which is usually short) offers great views of the surrounding museum grounds and Willamette Valley once you get above roof level. In addition to... More

All four waterslides were really fun. On your way up the stairs to access the waterslides, they had facts and videos playing of how they built the park and got the huge 747 jet on the roof. It was really neat to see all that went into making this concept a reality and also passed the long wait time as... More

We finally had the chance to visit this waterpark. We took our son, age 10 and his friend, age 11 for a birthday celebration. You can save $5 per person on admission with a AAA membership or museum membership. Our cost was $108 for 2 adults and 2 children plus $14 for 2 large locker rentals (They were not very... More

We've been to Great Wolf Lodge in Washington, and Raptor Reef and Silver Rapids, both in Idaho. Wings and Waves Waterpark was my favorite. It has the fastest body slide out of all of those parks, and the fastest toilet bowl slide (Great Wolf Lodge's tornado slide is a bit faster, but it's not a toilet bowl slide, which I... More

This was so well worth the trip (it's about an hour south of Portland)! Wave pool, small spray park, small pool with a vortex area that was fun to drift in, big waterslides that you access from inside of an old 747 jet and a children's play area with 2 small waterslides (that are still fun no matter how old...

I have actually never been there because it is too damn expensive to go. I would like to take my grandkids there but they even charge people just to watch their kids play in the water. This is a waterpark not Disneyland. How about giving people a break on the price, especially the locals?
