“Great day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We had so much fun at this water park. It's a short walk (5 or 10 minutes) from the Riu Emerald Bay, which is where we were staying. Low admission cost, awesome kids area and the tube slides were super fun. Loved that they had the automated lifts on two of them to take you to the top. The 4 person raft slide is super cool, and was my 3 year old son's favorite part of the park. The wave pool and lazy river are also nice. A word of caution if you have small children, the carpet slide is fun, but both my 3 and 7 year olds got stuck for a bit partway down. The staff don't speak much English, but know enough to get through the interactions you will need (locker rental, tube rental, food purchases, etc...). The park itself is very clean, but the bathrooms were a bit sketchy when we were there. All in all though we'd defnitely do it again, and we had a fantastic family day,

“Fun but scary!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The kids enjoyed visiting the water park, but nobody spoke English, so we were at a bit of a loss. The slides are fast, and there is little room at the bottom to land! On the big green slide, we thought we were going to come off the edge. The concrete on some of the slides is in bad shape, and the rebar is rusting, so beware if there is an earthquake!

“Tons of fun! Use common sense”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We visited Mazagua water park in Mazatlon during our stay at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay in Mazatlan in April of 2013. We took two seven year old boys to the park and we all had tons of fun. I’ll start by saying that I highly recommend the park. We arrived at opening at 10 AM and for the first hour and a half we had a place to ourselves. The cost was 150 pesos (about $12 US). This is a great price for how much fun we had. The sign at the entrance states that some slides don’t open until 1 PM but we had so much fun with all the attraction that were open that we didn't even figure out what was not open until later.

There is a security locker for rent for 40 pesos. There are also some inner tubes for rent but we never figured out why we would rent them as each attraction we were interested in had a stack of free inner tubes next to it.

For those worried about sun there is plenty of shade and tables all over the park. We also didn't pack food and were able to find Ok food at the park.

As far as attractions themselves go, they are a bit dated but a lot of fun and every bit as excited as anything I experienced at places like Great Wolf Lodge. One to keep in mind is that there are no age, height, or weight restrictions on any of the rides so do use common sense. I tried every single ride before letting the seven year olds on them. Some were a bit concerning but I told boys to take it easy and to not take outside slides in case they “jump” over to the slide next to them. Personally we loved the fact that there were no restrictions but like I said do use common sense.
Even when more people joined later in the day we only once waited about 10 minutes for an attraction. All other waits were under a minute. Way better than anything I experienced at Great Wolf Lodge.
There are attractions suitable for toddlers and all the way to the ones for real thrill seekers. In one close slide I flipped upside down, lost my inner tube, and got a bit banged up but it was a lot of fun. Some might call it unsafe I call it fun. Just use common sense and don’t expect others to think for you.

Other reviewers commented that the water was a bit cold. Boys mentioned that for the first two minutes of the visit and never again. After the first ride you won’t even think about it. We were there on a hot sunny day and a bit colder water was perfect!

All in all, I highly recommend this place. We had tons of fun and would come again.

“Ok but Somewhat unsafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family walked here from the Riu last Christmas, it's really close. The water was extremely cold and the park was closing for the season. We practically had the place to ourselves - maybe 50 customers in total. It's nice, very cheap, a little in need of repair, with a fun zip line over the pool. But on the conveyor belt slide, my son and I were thrown off at the top and badly hurt, cut behind his ear. No-one was paying attention and the next folks were already coming up so we had to get back on and slide down. So overall I do recommend the park just use extreme caution, don't trip over broken concrete and beware some of the slides. Enjoy.

“Nice place, but with outdated slides.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The place is nice but the games are outdated and they need to be painted. Also a few more games would be great, although the place is not expensive.
