Fun for all ages! Rides for a menagerie of interests; fast, slow, thrilling, relaxing. A great place for families to have fun in the sun. We consistently take our kiddos here a couple times a year. We will continue for many years to come.

We had our first visit to Water World last Labor Day. It was over 100 degrees and crowded even at 10am. We lucked out and got one of the last Tube Valets. The very first ride I tried was the Flatline slide. Almost a six...More

I love Water World! Always have. But... I just went in mid-June and several of the rides; Turbo Racer and Warp Speed weren't working properly. This is disappointing since one is a timed ride and the other a game. The attendants didn't seem to care...More

This park had their drinking water and pools contaminated and continued to operate for three days despite this fact. Families were playing, having fun unbeknownst to them they were exposed to harmful untreated water. After the third day, they were finally shut down by the...More

Note that most of the one star reviews around this date have to do with the overwhelming response that they got to a $20/person promo offer to go before June 14th. We too took advantage of this offer and the park was fully packed on...More

I cannot adequately describe the over crowded conditions of this water park. 60-90 minute waits for most attractions including the Lazy River!!! 45-75 minute waits for ice cream purchases, water vending machines broken. We (family of four, with two boys ages 11 and 12) arrived...More

Yes you can. There are plenty of spots on the grass, common areas, and picnic areas that have shelter/shade to have a picnic. On busy days, though, we’ve struggled to find open spots to do so. But if you’re there when they... More
My family & cousins (9 total in all) are thinking about going to Water World the Thursday after this July 4th (2018). After reading Mark's review and purposefully reading the terrible reviews, I have a couple of questions. - Is the 'Giardia in the Water' problem 100% fixed? (If you don't know, no worries. There are other avenues one can use to find out.) -I've read a lot about the Tube Valet. I will look at Water World's website for more details, but is it really worth it? What does that mean. Some park employee's sole job in life at the park is to stationed at certain rides where they carry guests tubes/rafts up? Is the fee per/person? Is this something I can forego because I hate spending money on things I think should be free? Or is this well worth the price considering 5 kids 10 and under will be with me? (Okay that's more like 20-million questions, but I think it can be summed up with is the Tube Valet worth it?) -How early (no time is too early for me) should we get to Water World to guarantee getting Tube Valet's, or tube/raft rental? Thanks for your help!

The tube valet will work with up to four people and a tot. It is $70 if you don’t have any kind of pass or discount. Not cheap to be sure, but can save you a few hours of waiting in lines. By about 10:30 all of the tube... More
