We love Water Country USA, it's really a great family destination. I've found it to be the cleanest water park in the Richmond, VA area by far. The small size of the park is good for little feet and there is plenty to do there to justify staying for the entire day. My favorite part is the plentiful shade provided... More

Super fun. Expect long lines in the heat of the summer, theme park pricing on food and accessories. We have annual passes and the kids wake up in the morning asking to go to the water "Funtry" place. Clearly they love it. Ok they are 3 and 5.. But I love it too. Friendly staff and everyone we asked was... More

This is one of the best water parks we have ever been to...fairly large park, and it is well maintained. All the rides are fun. And the lazy river is a blast. Also, the lifeguards here appear much more attentive than other places I've been. That's always a great thing to see.

The lines were reasonably long for the water slides, but the short ride down on each one was extremely exciting. Their new ride the colassal Curl semmed scary, but it wasnt, and I had a blast going down it. The Tunnel ride was cool as there was a midway splash pool.

I have been to many water parks across the East Coast and this one takes 1st place with no competition at all. To start, the park is absolutely gorgeous. The scenery is appropriate for the themes and the park itself flourished with color. The park was well-maintained and extremely clean. There was no wait when we visited in May so... More

My family and i went to water Country USA and we had a blast, the rides were great. There is a ride for every member of the family and the wave pool was the best.

We visited Water Country USA on a Friday in late August. We arrived right as the park opened, and enjoyed multiple rides with close to no wait until around 12 or 1. The afternoon was busier, but not crazy. The park is not too big and not too small - really just right! It is clean and well maintained, and... More

I took the grandchildren on a 4 day trip to Water Country and Busch Garden. It was raining off and on. It rained long enough to discourage some from coming. Which allowed the kids a no wait access to all the rides, it was wonderful! The parks are clean with beautiful scenes representing several countries.
