An oasis in the desert.

When Surprise was being built, there was the stadium skeleton and the aquatic center. The slide is so fun, you'd think it was a place that you had to pay $35 to get in to. There... read more

This place is great.. And all we have used is the pool. We visited on a 108 degree day and the sections of the pool were awesome for the kids and parents alike. There is a good amount of shade, water slides, and lap pool for the more experienced swimmers. Great way to beat the heat!

Need to upgrade the lake near the Aquatic Center. Need to add and indoor pool or a heat pump. Need more shade so parent can seat and watch their kids. Surprise needs is a indoor/outdoor waterpark for the kids in the summer.

Took my kids here, it was a bit chaotic. There is no control. The staff really depends on the parents to help with thier children. Seemed a bit Understaffed for my liking. But it was clean.

Photos are from World Wildlife Zoo and Aquarium, approximately 7 miles away from this water park. The zoo and aquarium are not in Surprise.

Polite and courteous staff made the visit very enjoyable. The kiddo pool area is outstanding and very well monitored. I'm surprised that this place hasn't been rated by major media outlets.

I really like the kiddy pool area. The water ranges from 1" deep to about 3' deep. There are shaded bleachers to sit on. Could be a little cleaner, but otherwise a very nice place to be on a hot day.

Gave 3 stars because these photos are of Wildlife Zoo which is a fantastic place to visit. Aquatic Ctr, is also nice for kids as other reviewers have stated but is crowded.
