Great fun for the kids. Safe and clean we let our kids loose on the park and they all had a blast 6 to 13. We were there on an August Saturday which was busy but still not crazy. One tip get their early to get good seats or bring your own.

Whale's Tale is very clean compared to other waterparks I have been to. Also, the lines do not seem to get crazy long like other places. The staff is very friendly and polite, and we overall just had a great day there. The only drawback I am aware of is that for what I spent for lunch at the cafe,... More

We had a wonderful day at Whale's Tale Water Park with our two children, ages 11 and 7. The water park is not huge (we have enjoyed larger water parks like Water Country U.S.A.), but I found this park was the perfect size for our family. So beautiful to have a water park in the mountains and it was fantastic... More

We went on a Saturday in August and I expected the place to be mobbed but we had no lines at the ticket counter and we got right in with no hassles. I wish we lived closer. I'd bring my daughter here all the time. It's perfect. Something for all ages and yeah I saw parents lounging on the chairs... More

Park is very clean. Wave pool is fun. Slides were some what daunting for our son though! Lots of places to sit or lounge. Lines were not bad at all.

Was there earlier in the week and really liked it. I didn't go in the water but my son and grand kids did. The place was clean and the help was friendly. Ate in the snack bar and food was fair, but that's not what you go to a water park forI would say it rate right up tere in... More

We've been to this park several summers now while on vacations. The kids love all that there is to offer and I cannot believe how much they have in a small space. It's easy to keep track of the kids, tons of lifeguards, and always clean. Can't ask for much more than that.

We visited Wednesday, 08-24-2016. Overall, I liked the park. Enough different water attractions/slides for people of all degrees of courageousness. I thought the park was pretty clean and neat and the rides were fun, even for an older person like myself. We had lunch at Porthole Pizza & Subs. Pizza was good but my son wanted a grilled cheese and... More

We visited in the summer of 2016. Kids aged 7, 10, 11, 12, & 13. They all had a blast. The park is big enough to explore and not be bored for a full day, and yet small enough to feel comfortable letting the kids roam. Some really exciting slides and some tame ones for the chickens in the group.... More

My 12 yo daughter wanted to go to a water park during our vacation to mount Washington valley so we opted to go to Whales Tale. The entire place is run down and not well maintained. Walkways are shabby, food areas border on gross, bathrooms are very poorly maintained and too small. The staff consists of disinterested and occasionally surly... More
