Lines way too long. They need more rides and activities to handle the crowds. Food: they need more places to buy food...even a few snack bars throughout the park. Took us 30 minutes in line to even order. We gave up and went home

I love supporting venues but this place really gouges and delivers mediocre entertainment. Buy tix in advance but if someone cancels you won’t be able to transfer according to a long list of rules. No one was checked for id’s. We splurged on a private...More

The park itself is wonderful. I could spend all day relaxing in the lazy river...I could, but instead I'm fighting off unattended children. Jumping, yelling, screaming, throwing things etc. Maybe a specific time or specific day for adults only?

We visited Waterworld last week on our trip to California, and although we had great fun, half of the attractions were closed. This included various slides, and also the main wave pool, as they 'were waiting on working parts' - guess the working parts were...More

From the gate coming in.the security was very rude and condescending..i feel the staff needs to be retrained in customer relations! Other than that, the park was very nice..

Nice and warm. But expensive and crowded. Make sure to get there very early; otherwise every single sunbed will be taken by locals (if I were a local, I'd do the same). You are not allowed to bring your own lunch to the park, so...More

I'm not sure what you mean by free days. Floaties are ok, outside food is not allowed. (According to their website) I've seen people bring food for little kids inside the park. Perhaps being discreet about it.
