A great one day water park!

If you are looking for a small water park for a family this could be it. There are six water slides, a surf simulator, a kiddy pool, a water jungle gym, two hot tubs, a basket... read more

Avalanche Bay is a great way for a family to spend the day. There are waterslides for all ages from toddler to thrill seeker plus a pool, lazy river, large climbing structure and a FlowRider (surf simulator). My 9 year old and his cousin spent hours on the "Alpine Racer" mat slide while my 7 year old spent more time... More

There are six water slides, a surf simulator, a kiddy pool, a water jungle gym, two hot tubs, a basket ball area with a ice burg water crossing, and a lazy river. The staff is very on top of safety there. While we were... More

We visited midweek when there were not a lot of people. No lines on any of the slides. The slides were fun but typical for any indoor water park. The water was warm but not hot. The only ride that had a wait was the flowrider. They allowed a couple of national competitors to monopolize the time in order to... More

The water park wasn't crowded and our grandkids had a wonderful time enjoying every water ride over and over! The dressing rooms/showers were clean and staff were very visible. I would recommend this water park. 👍😊

This was our first time coming here but two of my children had been there before with friends. It would be fun for a once in a while kind of trip but we will not be getting passes. They did have a smaller kid area, smaller water slides which for me were faster than expected. They have bigger water slides... More

Spent a Friday afternoon here, make sure you have a coupon, prices seem a little high for what is offered. The staff is very young and some of them didn't speak much English. A few of us got cuts on the water slides... It's definitely more for younger kids, I think teenagers could get bored fast. Only 6 different water... More

Avalanche Bay had a great variety of activities, well supervised and affordable food options. Locker rooms needed attention, kinda gross. Plus it didn't stink like chlorine!

Well staffed, good at at arcade, reasonably priced concessions, they have it managed pretty well with timing of rides and running people through. We took advantage of the lower half-day rate after 4:00.

Spent afternoon with family and 3, 7, and 9 year old. We all had a blast. We are locals so, coming here is always fun. They have a lagoon, hot tub, toddler pool, race slides, couple big slides and regular pool. Arcade, cafe and gift shop inside. Great family fun.
