We went twice in one week the first few days of Sept. One day was busier than the other but we only had a 15 minute wait on one ride. The second day we went (Thursday before Labor Day) there was practically no one in the park. They only had one ticket taker at the front gate it was so... More

It's one of the better water parks I've been to. The lines can be long, but what amusement/water park doesn't have long lines. There's typical amusement/water park food stands to choose from here, and as always the prices are a little high, but that's expected. If you want a choice seat at any attraction arrive early. Place gets crowded and... More

MKe sure you spend the day!, Fun fun fun, great and clean places to eat. Nice place to relax as an adult and let the kids go on the lazy river ride on rock n roll island. Festive and relating, imaginative slides, rides and waterfalls

Rides are a lot of fun, but they can never accomodate the amount of people that visit this place. They have lots of room between rides, so they could easily expland. I hope that they do, because the wait time is awful. Thankfully there is shade in most of the lines. Make sure you wear water shoes or your feet... More

I love this park. We have came here every year for 15 years. Its a clean park. It gets a little crowded at times. Limes for slides can get long during the day but if you wait till the crowd leaves you can usually run up and down every slide a few times the last few hours they are open.... More

I honestly went last summer but, the drop down menu wont let me chose any day before Dec14. I give this water park a 10 out of 10. Here are some recommendations for future travelers: -Get the Quick queue pass to avoid long lines on the best water slides. It is only 20 dollars and will save you a lot... More

Love Water Country USA - the price is not bad, especially if you get there as soon as it opens and the lines are not ridiculous like you will find at Busch Gardens! The Quick Passes are also much more reasonable in price than at Busch Gardens. Definitely recommend as a family trip!

We had fun here my son won 2 huge stuff dogs playing the basket ball game. The kids really enjoyed it, the lines were short. The downfall was the bees everywhere you go they don't attack you they are attracted to the shrubbery they have planted throughout the park. The parking was $15 with a season pass which was outrageous!... More

One of the highlights of the trip - once in easy to access everything - pick your dates well as you may require an easy pass, queues can be long.

This is a nice water park, it is great to go on a weekday because you get to ride everything with short lines. They have a lazy river (rambling river) that is ok but I really like the hubba hubba highway, you put on a life vest jump in and let the current takes you, they also have a new... More
