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 2018!)

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.

My kiddos had hours of fun here. The view of the Mississippi River is outstanding. This is a non smoking facility so if you smoke, you will need to use the parking lot. They have bathrooms and places to grab food or a drink. Again,...More
