It seems new management is dedicated to bringing this water park up to it's rightful potential. As of the date we were there, 7/6/14, only one water slide was open, the wave pool, kid play area and the baby pool. Parking was free, $10 per person, kids under a certain age...maybe 12 (?), the price is $5. My triplets are... More

I recently called the park to find out if they will be open this summer. I've never been there but my husband has fond memories of the park. I was told that the park has been through renovations and will be open some time next week. Can't wait to take my kids! Will post review once we visit.

This waterpark is closed and should be removed from the list. I was planning on taking my kids today and got as far as Target to buy towels (we are stuck in Ocala bc of car trouble on the way home from Disney). I happened to mention to the cashier that we were going to the waterpark and she said... More

Kiddie side is perfect, concessions are way overpriced, a lot of slides were closed, a few slides hurt your back, wave pool is average, they are strict about no shirts or shorts on slide which I think is ridiculous. I understand no jeans or outerwear that has buckles, buttons etc but I had a fitted tank top to hide my... More

I grew up going to Wild Waters in the 1980s and it was a wonderful family water park. In the early 2000s I took my oldest daughters there and it was still clean, safe and fun. This summer we bought a family pass and althogh we got our money's worth by visiting three times, it was not nearly as nice... More

I thought that it was a good idea to take my daughter to Wild Waters because the good experience that I had in the past when I was a child. However we went to Wild Waters on August 31, 2013 and it was a disaster. Now where should I start? First of all the main attraction was closed. We checked... More

Upon arriving it was $8 to park (cash only). Entrance fees per person are $14 (under 3 are free). When entering you can opt to pay for a locker for the day at $7 and $10 prices. The ages of the kids with me were 2, 12, 14, and 15. 2 of the water slides were closed. I'm not sure... More
