Zoombezi Bay is a large, somewhat expensive waterpark attached to the Columbus Zoo. If u have small kids it gets very crowded. The slide options are good and it is a very clean park. I would go back.

We had a wonderful time. It was my 4 year olds first water park and he had a blast. He keeps asking to go back. The lazy river is really cool. It’s very clean the water temp was comfortable.

If you love big waves and swimming in deep water, Zoombeezie Bay is not the place for you! Do yourself a favor and spend your time and money going to Kings Island’s water park where you’ll be guaranteed a big wave every time! Zoombeezie Bay...More

Entry was simple. The slides were nice but the lines were really long. It definitely helps to get a Zoom Pass if you don’t like waiting in line for over 30min. We were in one line for almost an hour just for 20 seconds of...More
