Wild Waves is a dual theme park. Half of the park is what we call water rides and the other half is what we call dry rides. It's fun for families and teens who want to hang out at a safe place. They do have lifeguards, but especially when my kids were younger I watched them closely myself. Several of... More

Well I like the park and everything it has to offer but the prices for kids to eat is kind of ridiculous and the wait times for some rides is a little wait like any other theme park, and you also have a choice between the water park or amusement park which is cool. So you will have a lot... More

Well, first of all, it was lovely and it was free. The artificial snow they blow in every so often is such a special touch, the children were so excited. What really put a damper on things was the exit. So confusing - - I mean we watched families with small children lugging carriages up the flight of stairs -... More

This place gets absolutely insane during the summer; it seems like every family within a 50 mile radius gets a season pass and so the lines during the peak season can get ridiculous. The last time I went during the summer was years ago, and even then we had 1 hour waits for some of the slides. The time to... More

My company reserved the entire park for the kids holiday party. Three generations from my family went and we all had a wonderful time. Lots of space so we never felt claustrophobic and they had rides that suited everyone. A million lights gave the place a magical feel and there were many foto opportunities. When it was over, I was... More

We spent most of our time waiting in lines than doing the rides or haunted house. The food lines were 45 min wait and cash only. There wasn't enough workers patrolling the park and people were out of control. We left right after a random person ran up to our girls and screamed in their faces. The worst experience we've...

When you go to Wild Waves, you have both water rides and regular theme park "dry" rides, and you need to plan accordingly The park is not huge, and you can easily walk form one area of th e park to another; it but can seem very crowded on a hot, sunny summer day. There are enough high-energy roller coasters... More

I actually visited in Aug 2014, but it didn't give me the option to go back that far. Any way, I was doubtful about how the day would turn out based on multiple poor reviews I had read. However, we must have gone on a good day. It was clean, which I was happy to see. We got there at... More

The first time I came here I had a good experience, however, I did not purchase the tickets. The sun was out outside so it was great to get cooled off on the water rides! We got some food and went on the dry rides, not many but it was fun. My first experience was good, my second would be... More

Our visit was a late summer family get-together. A little too cool for water fun the day we went, but we enjoyed the amusement rides. Had pizza for lunch - and, of course, it would be a little more expensive at a theme park, but it was good, anyway. Parking was $10 at the entrance - not a big deal.... More
