The water was very cold in most areas. And as mentioned in other reviews, one of the first things that happened was our daughter fell while entering the wave pool do to a slippery surface. The lines moved pretty fast with exception of the go carts. Go carts, mini golf, and bumper boats are all included in the entrance fee.... More

We have gone a few times this summer and my children enjoy it. I like the lazy river and my children like the water slides and wave pool. I do wish they allowed people to bring in "healthy" food as the food being sold is not healthy. The healthiest things on the menu are frozen grapes and a chicken salad.... More

I live out of state and was very excited to take my family to this waterpark but it turned out to be not all what I imaged. So my husband and I were on the lazy river with our children and I stopped at the swim up bar to buy 1 beer at the price of $7.00, I kept my... More

My family has been to many water parks, so really this was just like the rest of them. Certainly not bad, just run of the mill. We were there on a very cold day in July, so it wasn't busy. the lazy river was frigid so we didn't stay there long. The wave pool was warm so that was the... More

My husband and I have been here 2x this summer. Once on a hot day and once on a mild day. Both days we had a lot of fun because of the different activities. The batting cages were bad. Go carts were lots of fun. We are both 30 and had a blast great date night

We have bought season passed for 3 years in a row and this year we are getting bored. The white slides have been the same for probably 20 years. The lazy river isn't big enough. The wave pool is extremely slippery. They really need some sort of thrill ride or this will be our last year buying season passes.

I agree with the person about the refund policy. If someone is from out of town pays then has to leave because of the weather, they should get a refund, not a rain-check. Also, the person there to pick up her kid...a lot of people drop their kids off there. They shouldn't charge her to pick up her kid. I... More

We decided to go check this place out as we wanted to go swimming. When we got there the sky was dark but we didn't see any lightning etc. We bought our tickets and headed inside just to find out that they had blown the whistles 5 minutes earlier for everyone to get out of the pools for weather related...

My child went to Wild Water West with a friend and they have a policy to charge you to enter, even to find a child. When I refused and entered to retrieve my child, they called the cops and said I was "disorderly" with them. This is a gross exaggeration of the truth of the situation. I entered, said "I... More
