Great for family time out

If you have small children, this place would be great for them to let out some of that extra energy hahaha.

This was a great place to let the kids have fun. Three large water slides and two you could ride inner tubes. I think I had more fun than the kids. There were also smaller water slides for younger kids and a really cool jungle gym to climb on. Then if you want to take it easy you can float... More

What a great way to spend the evening! After touring the Black Hills all day, this was a nice place to unwind. The water park has very warm water and the slides were fun. We did not visit during a busy time so we didn't wait for slides nor did we feel crowded. The whole place was clean and well... More

For a water park they don't keep the towels stocked? Pretty run down flooring pilling up in places my 4 year old tripped... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn, which isn't yet listed on Trip Advisor, however it was fantastic! The water park was the highlight of the trip for our 5 year old. She loved all the slides. In October, during the week, by 5pm the park was nearly empty. It felt like a park to ourselves. Everything was clean. Food nearby... More

Awesome indoor water park. They have a lazy river, water slides & an amazing section for the kids. There was a jacuzzi but it wasn't very hot & the jets weren't powerful at all. The water temperature in the rest of the pools was comfortable. There are lifeguards here but they were some of the most relaxed I have ever... More

I live in Rapid City and once in a great while I would go to Watiki Waterpark. I feel like I am in Paradise with the palm trees and stuff. It is a little spending nowadays. But if I have the money and time, I would head out to Watiki. I love the bowl slide but one time I went... More
