Worth the drive from Seattle!

This place surpasses Great Wolf Lodge by far and is cheaper. We spent almost 7 hours here! Loved all the slides except the orange one where you have to go down without a tube... read more

I did not think our middle school aged group could make it the whole day without being bored.......I was wrong. While not the greatest number of slides they were so diverse that they kids just loved it. It is very well laid out with a cafe with a large patio over looking the central area and wave pool. Changing area... More

We went expecting to enjoy the waterpark and museum. Since they share a website with the aviation museum and sit side by side, we thought it would be worth a day. Unfortunately, each has its own separate and exhorbitant entrance fee. The employees state that they are "independent entities" even though they're clearly cross-branded with each other.

My young daughter and I went several times and we had fun, but it seemed to always have long lines for the slides and the price is pretty high. All the chlorine made my nose burn every time. Would try it on a weekday when kids are in school if you want the best experience.

The seams of the tube hurt your back and it actually bruised my son's back. Only went on that one once but went several times on... More

Well it it was spring break.There are 4 slides and we got down 3 of them over 5 hours. The slides were great fun. There was basketball, an area for younger children, a hot tub (large), wave pool, restaurant (ok, but lacked healthy options). The dressing areas were clean and lockers were reasonable. I know it was a spring break,... More

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
