I made two visits in one week: 1. Mini golf with my husband, brother-in-law, and two boys. Very tame but mostly shaded mini golf course. Relaxing for most of us; great fun for the 7yo. Nothing else to say about it. 2. Another day, I took three boys ages 7, 8, and 9 to the waterpark for 4.5 hours. The only part of the waterpark we did not explore was the playground. The rest of my review is about the waterpark. Waterpark Tips: -Participate in the children's Fairfax library summer reading program to obtain free admission per participant for 1 visit. -Go on a low-crowd day. -Don't stop at the first restroom you see - we got there when the park opened and they still hadn't put TP in that restroom - just go forward to the big changing area. -All-day locker rental is $5. Each locker is horizontal and holds about 1 full backpack. The key is similar to rec center keys and pins onto your swimsuit. -Beach umbrellas do not keep out rain. If you expect rain, pack your towels in a plastic bag. -Don't ride the red or green slide unless you're a little kid; you'll go slow or get stuck! (Guess who got stuck...) -You can't wear goggles on the slides for people 48 inches or taller. The lifeguards let us toss our goggles down the slide and the attendant at the bottom picked them up. -FREE inner tubes and life vests to borrow in the wave pool. Key features: -Small park .... better for mom's feet! -Splash pad and kiddie lagoon right next to each other; I was able to watch kids in both areas on a low-attendance day -5 big slides total for kids 48 inches or taller (the yellow tube and the straight slides are the fastest) -2 small slides for shorter kids -One wading area for age 6 & under only; but a solid wall prevents parents from supervising both kiddie slides and 6& under area simultaneously -Playground and sandbox available; we didn't visit those though -Wave pool with reasonably high waves for the kiddie crowd and vigilant lifeguards -Photo op for pretend surfing Food: -Reasonable food prices at two food huts (we went to both), mostly junk food but a large salad available at the far cafe. I spent about $30 for three boys and myself; we brought our own drinks. -"Best pizza" he ever had, according to the 9yo -Dippin' Dots seemed expensive to me - $4.95 for the smallest dish

We went to Great Waves in Cameron Run Regional Park with a 3 year old and 8 year old and both kids had a great time. The wave pool was fun and the small water slides and splash area were perfect for them. Someone told me before going that camp kids leave by 3 and as we arrived at 2:30 we saw lines and lines of them loading onto buses. The park wasn’t deserted but it was nice the big groups had left for the day.

I'd always known this water park is rundown in the recent several years and gets to capacity so people are turned away sometimes. But, we went. The wave pool is OK, I have no idea how it compares to the one in Manassas and it's definitely no Great Wolf or Kings Dominion type. Unfortunately people are rude and the water is a bit dirty in terms of floating long hair and people wearing Nike sneakers IN the water. Nuf said. Pushy people even down to the children! My 11yo nephew was wiping his eyes standing amongst people on floating tubes and some teenage girl pushed her way through the crowd pushing him IN THE FACE. What is wrong with people?! The food place are pricey as are the Dippin' Dots which they ran out of chocolate if not all at 2:30pm. You can't bring in snacks, they check your bags but you're allowed to bring water. The bathrooms are kinda gross and the outdoor showers don't work well. Even the air around the slides smell like mildew so maybe that's reeking off the wet areas (steps, slides, main level). Hope they improve this place. You can buy tickets online ($15ish for those over 48" tall), but not senior tickets. Luckily the line was not long at 12:30 (we went on a Sunday in mid-July so that says a lot);l the senior rate is $9ish. So we tried it. Not going back again.

We went to great waves today and although small it was nice to cool off and play in the water. Admission price was about $14 for above 48" and about $11 for under 48". There really are only a few slides (four different ones) for the above 48" and two small slides for the little kids. The wave pool was ok but the waves are not very big. I think they could improve on the food but it wasn't bad, just a little dirty. Smaller kids will have fun but thrill seekers will be bored here.

The management is no where concerned about the safety of its guests , just a small inattentiveness is enough to lose your stuff and there is no way to get it back .There isn't any cctvs or warning boards or any other safety measures to avoid theft like activities .They don't take any action against such incidents .With my personal experience ,undoubtedly its a treacherous place to visit.
