Never, EVER go to Raging Waters at Cal Expo. ESPECIALLY if it is for a birthday party. I paid $357.00 for my son to have a birthday there and it started out great. We had 13 people in our group including 4 adults. We had...More

I've seen a lot of complaints in the reviews and I've been to raging waters twice this year and already plan to go much more before the year is out. The park is great and the life guards, while annoying, are only doing their jobs...More

Raging Waters was a great place to beat the heat. The season pass is well worth it. Get there early or parking and finding a plot of land to dry out on becomes impossible.

Wow, spent several days beating the heat in Sacramento at Raging Waters. The rides were so much fun, although an escalator would be nice for senior citizens (joke). It would be good if you could buy your ticket (long line) and then go in rather...More

Parking - $10. Admissions varies on the day but is expensive - check online before you go. (overall, the waterpark in Roseville is cheaper.) Can be very crowded on weekends and during the summer and a bit rowdy at night. (I don't let my tweens...More

I took my son to Raging Waters for many years, and it's sad to see it sort of fall apart over the years. There were efforts here and there to fix and refurbish, but they as often missed as hit, like filling two of the...More

Hi! We are now closed for the 2018 Season! Parking is $10 as it is owned and operated by Cal Expo, and it is cheaper to buy your tickets online! :) Hope this helps!
