I just went and tried Water World for the first time and I was seriously blown away. It is the most technologically driven water park I have been to, and they have a very vast collection of water slides and attractions to keep everybody busy....More

This is the largest water park that my family has visited. We went on a Friday in July which surprisingly didn't have extremely long lines. This is probably because there are so many water slides to choose from. Great wave pool, but I'd recommend younger...More

Fun water park even for Seniors. Lots of rides, and friendly people to help you carry the tubes. Employees very friendly. You can bring in your own food so a value for the whole family.

We took our granddaughters (8 & 12) here. It took them awhile to discover just how much there was. They continued to ride the same adventures, until I pointed out on the map that we had only seen about 1/3 of the park. So it...More

This water park is huge with great attractions. However, the customer service was AWFUL. The young lady giving us our tickets did not give us a park map, did not explain how to rent tubes, and etc. We spent at least 1 hour walking back...More

Always something to do. Lots of different water slides/rides from the most tame to high thrill adventure. If the slides/rides are not your thing they have a great lazy river and wave pool. We recommend the tube valet, if you are planning on going on...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
