“Oh...its crowded!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

While the place is very nice and lots of things to do....too many people standing in line gives me cause to stay away. When you pack too many people into a water park, you end up spending all your time in line, waiting your turn. That's not what I paid to do. But, the kids love it and that's what it is all about, I guess.

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Great water park and great value. There is lots to do for both my children, age 4 and 7. Its also pretty nice to go hangout if you and the spouse have a day off - there's also a lazy river just for adults. If you get the season pass it also gets you into the zoo during water park season. You can't beat the value.

“Great family place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We love the lazy river. My kids enjoy the slides. The new slide that looks like a bell is awesome. The waterpark is right next to the zoo so get a combo pass and get two days out if!

“Good summertime fun but not in everyone's price range”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Zoombezi Bay waterpark has some very original slides and plenty of different attractions. It is also attached to the Columbus Zoo. I found the park to be safe and all of the rides had been recently built. The food is pretty good, about what you would expect at a venue such as this. You can buy a large plastic cup and get refills which is the best value on beverages.
We especially liked the ride which looks like a giant funnel. There is something for all ages here, but also an adults area with it's own lazy river. where you can sit and have a drink sans kids.
I would definitely return, just be aware that they have raised their prices since the inception.
