 I have loved the wild waves since I was a child. We would drive up with a car full from Portland to the spend the whole day playing at the closest water park. I have many great memories. I am sad to say that things have changed and wild waves does not hold that high regard for me anymore. My... More

Just returned from the Fright Fest with my seven year old daughter. It was perfect for her. She's a tad under 48" so lo'ts of rides were off limits for her, but so many cute kids ride to offer, that she was really happy. Lot's of fun for Pappa as well. Even the "haunted" house passed well. The actors inside... More

Wild Waves is a mix of water park and amusement park, however I am not really convinced the combination works here. The water park areas appeared well used (indeed were incredibly busy), but you also had guests in swimming costumes riding the roller coasters and leaving the seats all wet...not ideal really. The wooden coaster (Timberhawk) isn't bad at all,... More

Overcrowded. You'll be treated to views of the parking lot and the I-5 freeway. Long wait. $10 extra for parking. Lockers cost extra as well. Slides are in need of repair. "Zooma Falls" was leaking water all over the place and on top of overhead lighting (unsafe?). Wave pool doesnt really have any real waves. The deep end was roped... More

I totally disagree with all of the recent (poor) reviews. I think this place is a major, pleasant, SURPRISE. Maybe because I'm Canadian and we don't have the big theme parks, but having rides and water slides/tube rides/wave pool at the same location - for the same price - is AWESOME. Not to mention it's CHEAP at $28 per ticket... More

OK, I loved the new big wooden roller coaster and the "Hatchet" ride as well as enjoyed the water slides. Several of the attractions were closed, maybe because it was the end of the season, but still it would have been better if they were all open. Once again, maybe because it was the end of the year, but I... More

Group of 4 adults & 4 kids aged 8-12 had a good time. Weather wasn't super hot and the park not to it's maximum but the line ups were long. We would bring a picnic blanket or camp chairs next time as the good loungers were full. Pricey but it's two theme parks for one price (big lines for slides... More

Having just moved here from California I was excited to find a nearby amusement park for my kids 6 & 11. Sadly it's more like an overgrown state fair. Small and not at all like a classic Six Flags or other Theme Park. Given the price of the tickets it's a rip off in my opinion. The water in the... More

The only thing redeeming about this park is the roller coaster. The water park lines were so long that we gave up waiting (1+ hour long line) and didn't even make down a single slide. The park nickles and dimes you from the minute you enter - $10 to park, $21 for a locker, $9 for a chicken wrap, etc.... More
