About
Along the scenic Great River Road in Grafton, Illinois, Raging Rivers WaterPark is cool when it's hot! From our zoomin' Cascade Body Flumes to our lazy Endless River, there's something for everyone! (Temporarily closed until Summer 2019!)

Raging Rivers was an extremely fun water park for us and our children. There was a nice variety of slides to try. Some of the hills were steep and difficult to walk up. They had a variety of food selections to choose from. We would...More

Raging Rivers is a perfect place to spend a hot day. From the 2 main water slides to a HUGE pool (with the occasional wave) to kids zone to lazy rivers- this place has a lot for a fun day in the water. There's something...More

First of all, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The pool areas were very clean. It is a great place for children of all ages and adults of course. The prices of food/drinks are not as cheap as going to McDonald's, but not as...More

I spend the day sitting in a lawn chair at the edge of the wave pool reading. Always enjoy myself, owners always stop by and ask how I am, do I need anything. It's my little get away when it's hot.

Visited the park on 8/18/17. Two water rides were closed and the park closed two hours earlier than is posted on their web site. Yet was charged full price for admission. Reduced services should equate to a reduced admission price.

Absolutely love this place. We venture out there every year for a day of fun. Very attentive staff and super clean. We bring our lunch and eat at the picnic tables to take a break from the water. You can also purchase food inside.
