I spent a sunny March day at Rapids Water Park with my husband, son and his girlfriend during Spring Break. We rented a locker when we arrived to store our things for $14 and we got $2 back when we turned in the key. There was a smaller locker, but this one held our towels, bags, shoes, etc. The park was nearly empty and we got a chance to ride all the rides. The park was clean and well staffed. They have a wide variety of rides. The lazy river had lots of inner tubes available and had some waterfalls and was a slow ride around the park. You were able to exit at many spots throughout the park.
They also had a wave pool which was very fun. My husband and son were able to body surf and the guards were very attentive. They stopped the water to drag a young child out that was having trouble swimming. One of the guards saw it and whistled and the waves stopped and he jumped in and got the child to his Mom who wasn’t even in the water. I was impressed at the attention they paid to the all the patrons in the water.
There is a wide variety of water slides. There are body slides and tubes slide. There are individual slide, slides for pairs and family slides. The park has funnel slides which were really fun. There were virtually no lines when we there so we were able to get on every ride multiple times. The staff was very pleasant and very attentive. The facilities were clean and were were able to change in to clean clothes before getting in the car to return to our condo. All in all it was a fun day. I’m not sure how it would be with long lines, but on a sunny day with no lines it was fun and they gave us 2 for 1 coupons to return another day before the end of June. Unfortunately, we had to head back to NJ.
