We thought we would visit the park this past weekend, the last weekend in August. I have to say the rides were great, when we could get on them, that is. First of all, the operational hours are skimpy. Should open at 9. The line to get into the parking took forever--2 people checking parking passes were slow and inadequate.... More

My daughter won 5 tickets to water country through a summer reading program at the library. We only had to buy one ticket to get our family of six into the park. At $30 for a child under 48" , the price seems a bit steep. For comparison, we visited story land this summer as well, each ticket was $30,... More

If it had not been for the gulls we would have had a great time but they are everywhere. There are no signs telling people not to feed them so kids feed them which encourages more and more. One pooped on our towel and another on my swim suit while I was relaxing on the lounger - I had to... More

I took 5 girls all 12 years old. They had a great time. Rented a cabana and for what I paid was disappointed. No shade provided in the afternoon. Such a hot day but would only do it with a cabana to keep away from the mobs of people. Felt like my belongings were safer. The speakers playing music were... More

We went on a Tuesday, so the crowds were minimal, but I have to say the park is very nice. Well maintained, clean, the rides all seem well kept and are quite nice! The staff are friendly and it was easy to find seating in the shade. There are picnic areas, big benches, many slides that are well spread out.... More

We live locally and are season pass holders. In general, we have always enjoyed this park and feel it's got potential to get back to being great. Unfortunately, this summer it's taken a turn in the wrong direction. We were there this week and one of the family pools and two of the family slides were closed. Many of the... More

I've been here a few times over the years and feel like this is a decent little waterpark, especially for kids over 48 inches. I brought a 10 year old here a couple of weeks ago and she was able to go on all the rides (had she wanted to) and loved everything we did. I feel the slides have... More

They have parking for $5 and its not that for entrance. They do offer premium parking for $20. The water park is big and the way is build you have to walk a lot so would not recommend to walk barefoot. Two of the major rides were not working.

We have been going to this water park for about 15 years.We buy season passes every year. I'm not sure if the management has changed this summer or not but things just are not the same. We average about one visit a week. This year there have been a lot of rides closed during peak hours and rides breaking down.... More

I have gone to water country over the years of my life and I was never so disappointed as I was yesterday! I brought 5 people including 3 teens. 2 of the people in my party were peed on while standing in line at a slide!! Yes, pee came down on their arms and stunk!!! So, they complained to the... More
