Wonderful family fun! Great thrill rides through dark tunnels, straight drops through tubes, and also family friendly big daddy falls where you can all pile in one tube and relax during the ride. We stay away from the wave pool - but some love it. Plenty of lounge chairs there to catch up on your tan. Rides and areas for... More

We love water parks and this so far, is our favorite one! We came here with my in-laws who are in their mid- 60 ' s and my son who had just turned 4. We loved their wave pool and their "river" ride, which is a little river - like water ride that you can enjoy while sitting on an... More

There were a number of "family" rides so that we could all go on together. In addition, there were a couple extreme ones fr my teenagers.

We have spent a many a year here with both our daughters and now with the entire family including grandsons! Absolutely a great time for family! Enjoy the adult rides, wave pool or floating around the loop in an inner tube! Great pools for infants too! Plenty of places to buy food or bring a picnic lunch and eat it... More

We went on a hot weekend, and it was SO crowded I almost asked for my money back. The King's Dominion Water Park is, in my opinion, a LOT better. They squeezed every penny out of me and we'll skip it on our next vacation trip to Williamsburg

The lines for the rides tend to be LONG...we waited an hour and a half for ONE ride. The wave pool is okay...but it gets very crowded. Seems as though there are more things to accommodate the little ones, as opposed to older kids / adults. If you have little ones, this is worth the money....otherwise, we will not be... More

Water Country USA is Williamsburg is AWESOME! They have some really great slides, a nice lazy river, a wave pool, plenty of beach chairs for lounging, good dining options, cute souvenir and clothing shops, and friendly staffers. Other than the fact that my 17 year old son thought he was too cool to put on sunscreen and was burnt to... More

Go during the week. Weekend is too crowded. You can purchase alcohol and smoke in designated areas. The rides are amazing even if the sun isn't shining. The lines go pretty fast, the bathrooms and changing

The water was already over 90 degrees when we got there when it opened! It was in no way refreshing. You had to pay an outrageous amount to be under any sort of shade. The kids were ready to go way earlier than we thought they would be because of being bored

In the heat of the summer, this place is packed. Great to visit in late May and early June when schools have not let out yet.
