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?

This water park has a lot to offer. Multiple slides coming out of a 747, various pools for all ages, food, and a water play science area (where my 3yo wanted to just play all day). Fun place for a visit and be sure to go to the aviation and space museum on the grounds as well.

My sons are 14 and 12 years old and were ready to leave the Waterpark after a few hours. There weren't enough high energy slides to keep them entertained for much longer than that. It's pretty pricey to get in, so I'm not sure it was worth the cost, but if you have younger kids, they might really enjoy it.

Perfect place to take the kids, grandparents and parents! Lifeguards on duty and well observed. NOTE: If adults want to attend and not swim, they must pay a $12.00 (current price) just to sit upstairs at the food court. The food court does not have bathrooms so you must go downstairs and use the 'common' area. No A/C, bring a... More

We came through McMinnville in 2011, and didn't know about the waterpark, so didn't have bathers with us. But a water slide out of a 747, how can you miss that? This time, we came prepared. It was awesome. Got there at opening time on a saturday, and got to do all the slides several times, with short lineups. Really... More

I was a skeptic but everyone wanted to go so I agreed. The facility seems clean and well staffed. We did not use the changing rooms or the dining facilities so can't speak to those, but the water activities were fun and enjoyed by all. Lots of stairs to reach the 4 large water slides. Go early to beat the... More

We have lived a short 10 minute walk down the road from this waterpark for the last 2 years. We have been once due to the price of $30 per head. Who can afford this?! The showers were NOT clean. The staff acted like they wanted to be anywhere BUT there. If I am going to pay $30 for one... More

It was cool for a watermark to have a 747 as the starting point for the slides but the long waiting lines were a disappointment and prevented us from using the slides as many times as we would have liked for the price of $31 a person.

The price of admission is very expensive. Just to watch your kids cost you. Not something you could do all the time.

I have to be honest, because that what I promised. After you PAY through the nose to get in, the place is good. The younger kids loved it. Us adults, well, a lot of wait time. The cafe' should be part of the admission, cuz it's $$$$$ also and pretty 'o-um'. You can get a day pass so you can... More
