I Always Enjoy a Day at this Park

My first visit to this park was as a teenager over twenty years ago. I loved it for the beautiful view of the river and the not so crowded park. As an adult, I like the park... read more

My Grandchildren and I, ages 11, 9 and 68, had a great time! We got a tube and spent most of the time in the wave pool, but also went down the large slides several times. We went on the lazy river, but it was a bit too crowded so back to the wave pool. We simply had a wonderful... More

We really beat the heat at Raging Rivers water park in Grafton looking out at the river, floating around the park, splashing in Hurricane Harbor or in the pool with the wave machine.

My first visit to this park was as a teenager over twenty years ago. I loved it for the beautiful view of the river and the not so crowded park. As an adult, I like the park because it is kid friendly. Toddlers through teenagers have a good time here. It is a tourist attraction, so entrance is pricey, food... More

A great place to go with friends, family, or alone. You can sit up on a lounger and look out over the river. It's beautiful. The water slides are fun, and there are water tubes to just float around a lazy river if you like. Plenty of seating and umbrella tables.

Amazing water park with many things to go and do for everyone in the family. Look for coupons online and on bunny bread. It's clean they are constantly running and picking up the ground crew

We live three hours away and wanted a water park relatively close to home. STL hurricane harbor seemed pricey and would likely have been crowded on a hot summer day. Raging Rivers had many positive reviews. It did not disappoint! My boys ( ages 10 & 12 ) loved it. The wave pool turns on about every 15-20 minutes. A... More

I would like to think this is the most descriptive review for Raging Rivers of all time. We ordered passes a few days before online. Very easy to do. Look for discounts/coupons. There is one related to Bunny Bread advertised at Raging Rives, but we were not aware. I could not find any, so it cost me and my wife... More

Had a good time. Was very busy. I love the wave pool. It's like the ocean. Alot of chlorine in the pools and if you want a tan this is a great place to be too. Activities for all ages and adventurous levels

Raging Rivers is a short drive up the Great River Road from Alton, IL. This small waterpark along the Mississippi has a wave pool, lazy river, and several different types of slides. It is great for the whole family. Food and drinks can be a bit expensive, so bring a cooler and picnic in your car and go out of... More
