Great way to spend a summer day!

If you have a little extra money to spend, I highly recommend renting a cabana several days before hand (there may not be any available the day of). I reserved one... More

My children and I really enjoyed the water park again this year. I am not usually a big fan of parks like this, but Zoombezi Bay is very enjoyable and kept up very nicely. The lines can get long, but some were not too bad in terms of waiting. It is nice to have a wave pool, lazy river and... More

Great rides. Even with the lines. Kids loved Baboon Lagoon while my husband and I loved the Crocktail Lazy River (adults only) lounging with a cold beer.

I have had a season pass for the past 7 years! I love Zoombeezi bay! I have taught my nieces and nephews how to swim there. The food is not the best and it is very expensive but you can bring a cooler and eat what you pack from home. The slides are great! The new sound surfer is a... More

Although somewhat of a sticker shock for admission, if you live close, love the zoo the annual pass is the way to go. The kids loved the water park and mom felt safe. The food was priced competitively for the major attraction setting. They sell passes to help you cut down on line times and standing around. Great for all... More

I didn't see anywhere that yesterday was "104.9 The River Day" at Zoombezi when I researched our trip from Akron on the Internet. We bought our tickets online because I thought that was the best rate. We spent most of the day by the wave pool, where 104.9 was playing. Apparently it's a Christian music station, which kind of bothered... More
