I truly didn't care for this place. I know that my review might be biase as we went during the winter time so that my daughter could see Santa but we did get to ride some of the rides and see the décor. Honestly for the price, its not all that it should have been especially since you advertise this... More

This is a popular destination that's been around since the 80s. It's easily seen from I-5, but not as easy to get to. The exit to get there is away from the park and the roads to get to the park seemed wind-ey and confusing to me.

We went to Wild Waves yesterday, and our trip was great! We went on an overcast Friday after the area had experienced a significant heat wave for the past couple of weeks. There were no lines for rides and slides and we snagged a couple of poolside lawn chairs that were ours for the day. We stayed open to close... More

Even though half of this park is water activities, my family and I come mostly for the rides on the other side. We find that the water area is just too crowded for us so we spend the day riding rides and staying dry. One thing I really like about this park is that there are lots of rides for... More

We went last summer with our family. Fun park, the waterslides were fun however everything costs an arm and leg. Do not rent a tube some ride make you use their own tubes so you are stuck carrying your tube around all day. We will be back but next time we will rent a cabana area so we have a... More

We've been coming to Wild Waves for many years. We've gotten to the point of just going on certain rides in the "dry" area before going over to the wet rides for the rest of the day...The wet rides of course are where the action is at, although they do have a few good rides, most of the riides are...

On the freeway, this little park will look nothing more than a few slides and a ride or two. It's not. This park was so much fun! There are so many water slides and amusement rides for such a cheap price! I loved my day at Wild Waves.

After not coming here since about 1990 I visited on a Monday in July with my husband and 41 inch 4-year-old. The weather was about 80 degrees and we arrived right at opening-10am. Started with the water park which had hardly any people at all since it was overcast and chilly. Ended the day at the rides which were also... More

Good value for the money with varied selection of dry and water rides for all ages - our group ranged from 3 - 72. Hilly walks between rides. Lots of trees provide shade. They need some professional training for food service - much too slow for a captive audience.
