Slidewaters has put in a lot of energy into updating their park, with new areas, new attractions, and facility updates. We got a season pass last year, and it was so easy to get in and not worry about money in our bag, or using the lockers. Our kids love the slides, and there are so many levels for all... More

We drove from Seattle and stayed in Chelan for 2 days on memorial day weekend. First day, booked a speedboat and spent all afternoon in Lake Chelan followed by fireworks in Lake chelan park. Second day, we just went to slidewaters and got checked in and all by 1 pm. We paid for lockers which was very convenient for us... More

When the temperatures climb into the 90's and into the triple digits a trip to Slidewaters in lake Chelan is a must! The life guards are well trained and attentive, which is important for mother, like me with a young kiddo. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The snack bar food is average to good. The ice cream is... More

They have slides for everyone. Kids, teens & adult. There was a purple haze that is one scary ride if you dont know what it is.

Took twin 6 year olds for a full day at this well designed water park. Because they knew how to swim, they were able to go on almost all of the slides, even though they did not meet the height requirement. We had a great Labor Day, not too crowded.

Yes, it IS crowded on a 90+ summer day, but everyone seemed to fit in. There was adequate grassed areas to sit. Lots of shade trees. And queues never much longer than 10 minutes on the most popular rides. The ice cream was delicious. There's a ride for all ages and, from the look of the people, all SIZES. No-one... More

We were shocked to find no real lifeguards at this waterpark, but merely "pool attendants" who did not pay attention or care to enforce the rules. Notably, the height restriction on the small children's area was overrun with large kids and even adults! The attendants did nothing about it, causing a danger to the small children. Also very crowded. :(

This place is so much fun and such a breath of fresh air compared to large, corporately-owned theme parks. This is a small, locally-owned, water park in Chelan, WA. The place is immaculately kept, the slides are fun and exciting and the staff couldn't be friendlier. While not cheap, it is still a fraction of the cost of a larger... More

While camping at Daroga State Park we made the short drive to Chelan with friends to experience Slidewaters. Having never been before I was a little apprehensive. Our friends raved about it but I wasn't convince. I am now a believer! 4 adults, 5 kids and an entire day of fun. We did every slide, most multiple times. Our 11... More

On our 4th trip to Lake Chelan we discovered that Slidewaters, one of our must-do activities each trip, had been expanded and improved! What a wonderful surprise - they added an awesome lazy river, picnic area with tables and umbrellas and a water bucket attraction with an additional shallow pool with spray attractions. This has helped to ease the crowds.... More
