About
We are one of the last tower water slides left standing in Canada, and have a great set of activities for the whole family! We feature 4 large tower water slides, 3 smaller kiddie slides combined with fountains and shallow pools, mini putt, high performance remote control car racing on our custom-built track, and EVEN an arcade so you can get out of the sun but keep having fun! Don`t forget, we also have an RV park on location so that the family can stick around and enjoy beautiful Salmon Arm! Please visit our website linked on this page for pricing and more details.

We always come to these waterslides while in the area, they are simple but a good time. They are not super fast slides, perfect for younger kids. This was my 8 year old's first time going down a big waterslide, she loved it and felt confident going down. She is 53 inches tall and could easier touch, the water was about to her shoulders.

They also have an area with 3 short slides for younger kids and the water is quite shallow.

The actual hot tub is for adults only and max of 2 people. The other hot tub beside it is not at all hot, slightly warmer than the regular water.

You can buy some food items at the concession which is cash only. They had nacho's and cheese, burger, pizza, chips. The food is very reasonable priced but not great tasting either, good enough to stop the hunger pains. There is an option to bring in your own food if you want.

The gate is left open so you can come and goes as you need if you want to leave things in your car. They do have lockers, they are a $10 deposit and you get that back when you return the lock.

Covid - there is no reservation system, it is a first come first serve basis but they said they never came close to being at capacity. They do not loan life jackets at this time.

Food service was pretty horrific (took 30+ minutes for 2 tiny barbecued hamburgers). Stairs and platform for the water slides seems a bit unreliable. Didn’t seem to be a lot of guidance for the very young staff working there. We stayed 2 hours, had a decent time. Bit expensive!

I am very disappointed! My kids and I attended the slides yesterday and upon paying I mention to the girl working the desk that I understood their food policy but my daughter is celiac, so I brought her A sandwich and all other food would be purchased there. So much for honesty! I was told that it wasn't allowed in the park, we could go to the rv park to eat, or else where. I asked if they have any gluten free options on there menu, she said, they didn't. I was also told that there are people watching for food brought in and if we get caught we would be asked to leave, so instead of a relaxing lunch my daughter is looking over her shoulder, worried that we are going to get kicked out. Needless to say my daughter is not going to or be singled out just because she has a food allergy, she already finds it difficult not being able to eat the hamburger or hotdogs that are so accessible to us. If there is going to be food policies you need to consider food allergies not discriminate!

We visited the waterslides last week, unfortunately the individuals employed here ruined the experience for our family.

My 9 year old went down a slide and the life guards failed to ensure the slide was clear before allowing the next individual to go.

The adult man coming down behind my son was greater than 300lbs and took my sons back out with his feet, taking my son under the water with him.

The life guard on duty at the bottom of the slides did not even approach us to check on my son. The lack of attention brought to the incident by both Life Guards and Staff leaves my to feel SAFETY of their customers is not a priority.

Luckily my son was not seriously injured however our family will still never return.

Had a blast at the watersides! Took our 3 and 4 year old this July. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. There are 4 big slides which are great for adults (me and my husband felt like kids again) you go so fast! Our 4 year old was tall enough to ride alone, any our 3 year old rode in our laps which was fun. There is also a rad little toddler section with 3 pools and 3 slides that they can ride alone.

We went during COVID and the place felt clean and everyone kept their distance waiting in lines for the slides and hand sanitizer is all over the place. Washrooms were clean also.

We will definitely be back.

Tips - arrive a bit before 11, so you don't have to wait inline to get in, bring snack/drinks, and make sure you have a small bag to lock up stuff if need as the lockers are tiny.

My parents, children and I recently stayed at this RV waterslide campground. My children wanted to go on the waterslides so my father and I purchased several passes for the kids and with passes in hand, we were allowed to proceed to the slides. However, no sooner had we reached the slides we were informed by the park staff that they had just closed the park due to inclement weather and lightening approaching. Weather being weather, not much you can do about that. So armed with the kid’s wrist bands we headed back to the service counter to enquire about either a refund or a rain check. We were immediately met with a barrage of anger and hostility from the manager. We were told there were no refunds and no rain checks – it was company policy as she explained. We indicated since you knew that the weather was about to turn or that there was a possibility that you may have to close the slides down – why was that not explained to us? Why did you allow us to proceed with the purchase? Guess that wasn’t the thing to say – the manager became very threatening, verbally abusing myself and my elderly father when we challenged her and her company’s policies. When I began to protest her lack of professionalism she then proceeded to threaten me with the police. All this, because we asked for a refund or rain check and questioned this particular company’s policies. There are many other RV campgrounds/waterslide parks around that I know would appreciate our business and tourist dollars. I can guarantee that we shall never grace this campground again and I would suggest other tourists stay clear.

Made plans with out of town friends to meet at the salmon arm waterslides. Only to see a sign saying no outside food or coolers. Confirmed with cashier. That we were willing to drive to Vernon because of the new rule. They stated it was company policy. So we left. We had planned a picnic. We had a fabulous time in Vernon at the Atlantis waterslides, only a 40minute drive from salmon arm.

Sorry about your negative experience! We had enacted that policy in attempt to keep our park safe for all kids with allergies. Since then we realized most allergic children are prepared for encounters in public places, and have re-opened our park to packed lunches. Our only request is that you don't bring items that can be purchased at our concession (pizza, burgers, etc.). Regards, Riley Boudreau

25 yrs ago these slides were great. many good memories going there as a kid. Decided to take my 5yr old for some fun. Wow... you can't slide down the slides as all the "slide" is worn off. It is expensive and extremely run down. The employees are nice and that is the only nice thing I can say.

Our family heads to these watersides almost every summer as they are little so more appropriate for them. The watersides are super fun and perfect for families.This summer we decided it would be fun to stay there in the park as opposed to the site we usually take outside of Salmon Arm. Big Mistake!! There were squatters in the bush beside us, plugged into our electrical. The motorhome beside us had weed blasting every couple of hours, and the train was non-stop. On the way out we talked to the person at the desk about this, who could've cared less and let us know the motorhome was the caretaker of the park?! It is really too bad, as this park has the potential to be something great, but instead it appears to be on it's last legs, sadly.

Hildaka641, It sounds like the quality of your stay was one that never should have occurred at our facilities. We are currently training our new front end manager so he is a bit uninformed, but I can certainly assure you that our park caretaker was not the source of the marijuana smoke. I believe we found the source and dealt with it; however, I still do apologize for not having provided the family friendly environment we aim for. If you would like to email me at riley@salmonarmwaterslides.com, I would be more than happy to arrange a time to speak with you over the phone about your experiences and find a way to ensure that they aren't repeated by any of our paying customers in the future. Regards and humble apologies, Riley Boudreau and the Salmon Arm Waterslides and RV staff
