Really fun if you don't stress

I've always had a great time here. There are more than enough good waterslides. The "big" slides are great to do once--arrive early. The smaller ones are fun too with much... read more

This park is centrally located in Ohio and has something for all age groups. I think it's a great place to spend a summer day and it's not so big that it's overwhelming. Teens can go do what they want and parents can let the little ones play in the littles area. The lazy river gets congested but there are... More

The kids are 6, 9, 9 and 11 and all of the love it. Go during the week as the lines we have seen on weekends are out of control. Weekends would not get a five star review. We are going with a membership this year. We live five minutes away and waited years to finally go. This was not... More

I've always had a great time here. There are more than enough good waterslides. The "big" slides are great to do once--arrive early. The smaller ones are fun too with much shorter lines. It's also fun just people watching. Don't stress out, and you'll have fun

We've been here twice so far and it's a great waterpark compared to others we've been to. This place is immaculately clean in comparison to others we have visited, which is a big comfort! There are also plenty of staff on duty and the supervision for the attractions is good. The lines can get long at peak seasons, but what... More

Fun water park. We took a 4 year old and there was fun for him as well as adults. It was great to have free admission to the zoo included in the price.

Nice rides, I guess. I suppose if you did not have to wait in long lines all the time, it would be fun. But otherwise a bit of a rip off, as the long waits definitely get in the way of enjoying the rides.

Either before or after your visit to the Columbus Zoo, some time spent at Zoombezi Bay is both fun and relaxing. Children, as well as a adults, can have a great time. You can reserve areas for groups large or small, so you never need wonder where to meet up. Just like the zoo itself, everything here is first class.

This was a great place to spend the day. I was very disappointed that there were no picnic facilities available for families. The food places that were available to purchase food were very slow on the services and the prices were quite high. Based on the entrance fees and the lack of picnic facilities we will most likely not be... More
