Fun for everyone

I would suggest the season pass. That way you can go as many times as you like without standing in long lines to get in.

Went here with my family and took my son for his first time. I personally like the water area more than the amusement park part of the whole area. The lines can get long, but they do well in making sure everyone gets through fast. The food here is expensive like most amusement parks, but if you pack a cooler... More

 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
