Thanks for the memories. Used to come here everyday as a kid/teenager. Sorry to see you go. Always had so much fun here. Loved the tube river slide. Could spend hours here.

We came here again July 2014, our last visit was in 2005. We were so surprised to find that Rushmore Waterslide Park is now CLOSED. The gates were shut & locked. We were told the Waterslide Park closed because their expenses exceeded their revenue. Too bad it's closed. Lots of tourists & locals visited this park.

The owners said severe weather and maintenance issues took a toll on the aging attraction. It's sad to see a local attraction close down. Thanks for the memories.

If your child is 10+ years of age... it can get pricy. Don't judge by how it looks on the highway... they have more slides than you think along with a large hot tub. My advice: Bring an umbrella or wear a hat... it is very sunny when just sitting there.Also, always use the mats... the ride goes faster an... More

I visited in July 2013 with two kids under age 10. I wanted to take the kids here since the price was so affordable and it was well worth it. We spent about 5 hours here and had a ton of fun. The park was not overly crowded, lines for the slides weren't long at all. There's not very much... More

Just driving by, you can tell this is no major waterpark with the latest and greatest rides. It is good for an afternoon of sliding, especially if you have kids. The park is dated, but still very functional. $15 for an adult pass is pretty reasonable if you ask me. 3 and under are free, older somewhere in the middle.... More

The park is fun for kids, but there is not much for adults to do. There isn't much shade so even though we put sunscreen on several times everyone still got burned. Some of the slides are a little bumpier then we would have liked, but they were still enjoyable. With only 10 slides this is not something you can... More

We went to the Rushmore Waterslide Park and one of the slides quit working. We had to stop going double on another slide because it was leaking. If you did not use a mat and you could feel every rivet. The boys and my husband have red marks on their backs from the slides. At $14.95 each for the oldest... More

It was expensive so I thought had to be good. NOPE I WAS WRONG! We stayed there for an hour and we were bleeding bruised and I had to see my chiropractor the next day. She thought I was in a car accident. Nope the slides just beat the crap out of me. FAIL WATERSLIDES!!!

Adults are going to sit in the giant hot tub or at one of the picnic areas for the most part, while the kids run around. While that is typical of most water parks, this one just doesnt have a whole lot to offer as far as excitement. Also, it tends to have a very short open season and be... More
