Pro tip - parking costs $10. Pro tip - buy your ticket online to save a few bucks versus buying your ticket at the gate. Pro tip - get to the park early to rent a locker, the line is crazy long. Yes, this place gets insanely busy. Be prepared to wait in line for everything - food, rides, bathrooms,... More

Only water/theme park around and it is usually packed with people. My advice to you is to go in the fall or spring so it will have less people. If you go in the summer you will be standing around waiting for hours. If it is rainy, go in the water!!!

Gotta get a season pass before December. They are the best deal. And if you only go twice a year to still have paid for the pass. Just don't go the last two weeks of June when offer $14 tickets. The park is insanely packed and no fun! Bring a cooler- leave it in the car for lunch and water... More

They have a great play area for toddlers. Huge pirate castle with slides. Adults are allowed. Great way to catch in on a few slides without waiting for hours. Bring your own cooler and food to save money. It takes about the same time to walk back to your car and eat then waiting in line to buy food.

the trick to enjoy a family outing is to time the crowds ....look for the tidal pool if its full then the slides lines are lower.

Oh Wild Waves... you had so much promise but there is much room for improvement. Here's a summary of our visit today on June 30th. Pros: Bought discount tickets for June, only $14.99 each! Sufficient parking Fun rides and shade outside of water park area. Zip line cost extra but was very fun. Roller coaster lines weren't so bad in... More

Wild Waves is a great place to cool off in the summer months and get an adrenaline rush. The price is unbeatable too as for $20(not including tax) you are gained entry into the water and amusement park. Additionally, they are always posting price deals on their website(wild waves.com) and social media sites.the only drawback to this place would be... More

Our family has traveled each summer to wild waves and we have a blast. This year they have a new slide complex and we will be attending again this summer.

We visited Wild Waves for the first time yesterday. Not sure if it's always a zoo like that or if it was due to the $15 entrance fee - either way, it wasn't worth it. The line to get in the gate stretched all the way around the parking lot - I've never seen anything like it in my life.... More

Long lines: a long line out on the road waiting to get into the parking lot. Then the longest line I have ever seen in my life (around a kilometre long) to get into the park. Then because your bladder is now bursting, a long line for the toilet. Then you get to start on the long lines for the... More
