Carried our group of youth for the afternoon, had a blast! The water is cold and at first it will take your breath but on a hot July day it feels wonderful! Well worth the $2 admission! Lines can get kinda long but it moves pretty fast. We stayed about 2 1/2 hours and most of our kids went down... More

Fun time sliding down but the water at the bottom takes your breath away because it's so cold (well at least for this Floridian, but many others were cold, too, lol). Definitely worth it!

A great place to get wet and have fun on a hot day but forget weekends. It's crazy crowded. Kids will love it! There is a small fee and parking can be a problem but it's fun,

A great experience, but there is only a tiny parking lot. You have to park on side of road down or up the mountain and walk. In the summer it is insanely crowded, especially on weekends. But the line moves fast. Only fifteen minutes to get through. Best to come mid-week and come early morning or late afternoon. Water is... More

We arrived at sliding rock with low expectations, and left with smiling faces! The line is long, but it moves very quickly. Only $2 to get in, and then an afternoon of fun! Great for adventurers of all ages as long as they can swim! Highly recommend!

The only reason I gave this 4 stars is due to the parking situation. We had to wait for at least 20 minutes to get in the parking lot, then had to wait to park. It is a VERY busy place, but WORTH the time to stop and try it! Once parked the wait to slide down the rock isn't... More

Arrived noonish on weekend, blue skies and really cold mountain water, $2 admission each person even if only watching, long line over 75 people but goes very fast, young children OK if can swim (pool at bottom 8 ft deep), excellent time, so unique for outdoor adventures, but at height of day must park on main road, dangerous if other...

We went early (before 10am) and beat the crowds! It was fun for all of us and the water was definitely refreshing!

We have been blessed to try many things, but the Rock was awesome. We arrived around 7 pm after a rain and hurried down. There were less than 20 people and didn't have to wait in line. Just suck it up and walk to top and let it rip. Wear shoes, but be careful not to slip and fall as... More
