Waterside all day
Aug 2021 • Family
Family of 4. 10 and 8 year olds. Kids had a blast. We didn't get a cabana. Just picked a spot on the grass close to bathroom and lockers and laid down some towels. Lots of spots to do the same. Some are shaded and on the hill. I think it was $30 per person for all day and $8 for a locker. Definitely plan on going back.

Could be so much better and FUN
Aug 2021
PROS
-lots of parking

CONS
-OVER PRICED for what is offered - small park with not that many options... stayed 1.5 hours. Should consider kids price- below 16 and make it reasonable. Also, offer Senior pricing especially when not using water rides.

-Unfriendly staff- smile, say hi to your patrons, ask if they are having fun etc

-put more benches or sitting area with back rest chairs and umbrellas for grandmothers not using water rides...

-tons of WASPS around food shack... do regular spraying to keep wasps away

-provide a map of all the property and water rides... someone said there's a wave ride but we never found it

-need a bathroom monitor- disgustingly dirty ... sink was like a flood area.

Nice to see it once however I will not return ...More fun out on the Lake!

Overcrowded and overpriced. Don't waste your time. People working were rude also. Wild Waves in Federal Way is so much better even on a busy day. .

Clean, Fun, Go Early, Bring Hydration and Cooler
Jul 2021 • Family
Great, clean water park. It is not giant but it’s nice. We considered getting a cabana but they were sold out. Plan way in advance if you want a cabana and reserve it. Surf lessons looked interesting but we didn’t try it.

Lockers are digital so you just pay with card, make up your own code and can come back and get in it as you wish. No key to worry about. They have tiny cell phone lockers or larger standard sized lockers for “stuff”. We didn’t have any trouble with availability.

Bathroom seemed clean. This matters to me. I feel like bathrooms can be so nasty at places like this and an indicator of other cleaning or lack thereof.

Lines for slides were less long earlier, and grew as the afternoon went on. Line for food was hot, sunny, and slow. They need more shad there for the long wait; I was miserable and seriously thought I may pass out since one of the things I needed was hydration. We had brought bottled water but as the day went on, it sat in the sun for so long in plastic bottles, that was a no-go. However, staff were friendly and helpful. Once I got my order, one young man (staff member) helped me carry my food to my family’s blanket on the grass as I didn’t have enough hands.

If, like us, you rely on buying additional drinks, consider buying their refillable drink bottles early in the day—before you are dehydrated and have to wait in a long, slow, sunny line. Once you have the refillable, you can bypass the line for your refill!

Overall a good day.

Great memories with he grandkids
Jul 2021
I would give this 10 stars if I could. This place is meticulous. For the amount of people that line up before this place opens, it is apparent it is very popular. It is well managed, well staffed and they actually take the rules seriously. They make sure everyone complies but do so very appropriately. Every year they make the park better and better. The landscape is beautiful! I felt like I was in a Hawaiian oasis. We rented a cabana weeks ahead of time because we were taking our kids and grandkids. It was well worth the extra money.
This is a place we will visit at least twice a summer.

A must do if visiting with kids!
Jun 2021
Had an incredible day at Slidewaters on Friday June 11th. The park was extremely empty (unsure if it was covid related or because the weather was overcast and 60s with wind). There was almost no wait time for any of the slides, or vendors. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, with a particular shout out to Ben who really went the extra mile in getting to know our family. The views of lake chelan are awesome from the park! While the park is small, they really take advantage of every bit of space and pack in exciting slides. We were able to spend 4-5 hours, and still my 8 year old daughter wanted to stay longer. Highly recommend the water park. Make sure to bring your own towels! Also would recommend water shoes as my feet were a bit torn up after walking bare foot all day.

Amazing waterpark with great slides lazy river cafe and staff. Beautiful location and view. Very clean. Each section has limited people occupancy to respond to people's concerns of covid 19. Too bad they may not reopen:(

Want COVID? Go here!
Jul 2020 • Family
We felt comfortable going here after reading up on their website all the precautions they were doing to prevent the spread of covid. It’s all a big pile of Sh*t. They claimed they would ask people health history/fever/etc. they didn’t ask anyone. Said people would be 6 feet apart. While they put Xs everywhere not one person enforced them. People were so close together you could touch them. There wasn’t hardly an empty space on the grass so I’m gonna guess they were monitoring the number of occupants. Could be wrong. Only saw one hand sanitizing station. Honestly, really disappointed in them. I would avoid at all costs to avoid this place until after Pandemic. Whoever is running this place clearly does not believe it’s that serious or just doesn’t care about the safety of their staff and guests.

Didn't feel too welcoming
Jun 2020
A great day with the kiddos until near the end of our time. My 11 year old went into the men's bathroom and found some lifeguards were cleaning it. When he asked if there was another men's room he could use, one of them told him "Yeah, just find a sign that says 'Mens.' They all proceeded to laugh at him and didn't say anything more. So disappointing. I would hope a place like this would work harder to help kids feel as safe and welcome as possible. We are a biracial family so perhaps there was some internal bias coming out. I hate thinking this, but can't help but wonder.
