Great place, but too many rip offs.

It starts with the parking... $15 is average these days, but we had to walk 15 minutes in 100 degree heat over a hill to get to the gate because they don't offer enough shuttles... read more

I reported my granddaughter getting injured on their poorly maintained chairs and I've still not heard from Raging Waters. They're all about the money and you're at your own risk once you get there. Employees arguing over their schedule and overtime instead of the medical personnel taking care of my granddaughter that was bleeding and bruised from the chair that... More

Summer vacation is close to the end for my son, we decided to spend a day in the water park. We arrived at the time of opening. Early birds get the seat. Wonderfully water rides and slides. My son was so excited to be here, even woke up twice in the night. Meet and exceed our expectations, will come again... More

After reading many reviews both good and bad, I decided to go with my 12 year old son and here is how we had a successful day. Begin by purchasing your tickets online the day before you go to get the $12 Monday or Tuesday discount online. 2nd: Get there BEFORE 10am, the gates actually were open before 10am and... More

People, please, this is a water park. Just like any other amusement park there are several givens here: 1) You will pay to park. It's $15. Does that seem like a lot? It's cheaper than Disney or Universal. But the good side is that, if you get there early (maybe before 11am, depending on the day), you'll be parking a... More

We visited this park on Wednesday 3rd August. It was horrible the toilets stank and were really dirty, the smell of them lingered around the park. We got there about half an hour after it opened and there were no sun beds left so we had a look at the prices of the cabanas by the time we had decided... More

It starts with the parking... $15 is average these days, but we had to walk 15 minutes in 100 degree heat over a hill to get to the gate because they don't offer enough shuttles and the line was overwhelming. Disneyland's parking is the same price, but you get a covered parking garage and constant shuttles in return. It continues... More

Ok we went to Raging Waters San Dimas on a Monday 7/18/16. Here are the positives: the fast pass system (or in our case the most expensive one, $40 per person extra) worked amazing. We never had to wait in line for more than a minute or two. Jumbo lockers were great and easy to use, but expensive at $20.... More

Let me start by saying that we went on a Sunday. Perhaps a weeks day will yield a better experience. Pros: Our group of six kids had fun. We were able to cool off in the midst of this crazy heat wave in California. There are three nice kid friendly sections that our young ones loved. Cons: Oh, where do... More

Parking is a little expensive, getting a season pass is worth it if you plan on going more then once. The rides are great but the lines can get very long on the weekend. It is much better if you can go during the week. I always grab a seat away from it all, I avoid the lazy river and... More

Little traffic or many people at the park when we went. The park is a bit better when you have older kids but the little one still enjoy it . Use coupons from smart and final for discount or go to the airport and get a discount flyer
