Bring a lot of money for food because it is very expensive and they won't let you bring anything in. Not even water bottles. But they do provide little cups of ice water free of charge. You just have to wait in line at one of the food places to get it. Anything you bring in is very likely to be stolen if left anywhere in the park as my phone was. I had it wrapped up in a spare swim suit in my beach bag. They dug through my stuff until they found it. There should be security cameras at these areas. I didn't appreciate people being allowed to cut in front of us in line after we had waited an hour for a ride. People that pay an exorbitant price for a flash pass get to line jump all over the park. I won't be back for this abuse.

First time to a water park with our whole family. It was a wonderful experience. Parking is close. Facility is clean and well-maintained. Plenty for all ages to enjoy. Food prices are rather high.

We got season passes for our whole family for the first time this year. I like that the park is not huge. The rides are fun, and during the week the lines are not too long. My younger, elementary aged kids love it, the teenagers like it on a limited basis.
We have had a couple of problems but customer service has been beyond helpful and go out of their way to fix things for us.
It has been a great summer for us so far, and we plan to enjoy Hurricane Harbor many more times! I highly recommend the new Membership plan, and get the meals, too! If you buy early in the year and get free parking with your pass you can enjoy many visits without having to dish out more than a few dollars for drinks when you go! But water is always free there, so take advantage!

Hurricane Harbor Water Park...it's not something we'd do every weekend - but about once a summer we get the itch to go. This summer we went on 4th of July and with a little planning it was absolutely perfect. My fiancee and I both agreed it was the best 4th of July we'd had in who knows how long. Ten things to keep in mind and make your excursion the best it can be: Online advance tickets are cheaper than paying at the window and even cheaper than buying them at your local grocery store. The trick here is online *advance* tickets, which means they aren't good until after 3 days of your purchase. Second, arrive before they open if you can. They day we went they opened at 10am, we were there at 930. Third, it pays to have premium parking, we literally parked right next to the entrance, also buy this online! Fourth, keep in mind the open times listed on the website indicate the open time for season pass holders, day ticket holders won't be allowed in until 30 minutes later. Fifth, know your sequencing. Do you want to rent a tube for the lazy river? If so, do it first - as the day goes by they will run out of tubes to rent, leaving you empty-handed. Sixth - FAST PASS! Totally worth it - you can also buy this online then make your way to the Fast Pass station when you walk in the park. They will give you an easy to use watch (which is nice because it also let's you keep an eye on the time) which you can use to make reservations for rides. Even on one of their busiest days of the year, we literally walked on every ride using the fast pass. Seven - there's no such thing as water proof. If you are looking to keep your money, cigs, and credit cards dry - it won't happen. Even the shop girls in the gift shop will tell you that's the case. Your best bet? Convert some cash (or credit card) into Play Money - a band they slap on your wrist that's preloaded with a spending amount of your choice. You can pay for food & items in the gift shop - totally brilliant! Whatever you don't spend gets placed back on your credit card the same day. I had to log in to my online credit card account just to see if it really was same day - and sure enough it was! Eight, sunscreen sunscreen sunscreen! Every 60 minutes. Nine - flip flops will most likely fly off at some point during a ride or float away in the wave pool. Going barefoot may be fun and sexy for the first 30 minutes, but once the pavement heats up you're going to wish you had done more planning. Invest in some swim shoes ($15.99 at the park, or $4.99 at your local Wal-mart). Sure, they aren't going to match your Italian-silk hand-made bikini - but running through the park screaming in agony because your feet are on fire isn't exactly sexy either. Trust me, you'll love it. And ten - whenever disembarking from a ride, exit your tube feet first. Even if you have to wait for a ride assistant to help you - it's worth it. What you don't want to do is roll out onto your knees and stand up. The bottom flooring isn't soft and squishy like one may think - it's rather rough and will leave a nice red raspberry on any knee that happens to graze its location. Feet first, always. Eleven - don't leave items out to tempt people, it's just not worth it. Invest in a locker, which you can use your credit card to acquire. Lastly, since the water is constantly cooling you down, you may not realize how dehydrated your body is getting. Soda will lead to more dehydration, your best bet is to take advantage of the park's PowerAde on tap both in fruit bunch and cool berry. If you buy the "souvenir cup" for $14.99 you get UNLIMITED refills the same day, which will most likely save you money as each glass would be $4.99 otherwise. With 2 people sharing the same cup - we had 6 refills. Stay hydrated with electrolytes and you'll keep having fun - more importantly it will help you avoid heat exhaustion. Use these tips and have an EXCELLENT time at hurricane harbor!!

We had not been to hurricane harbor in several years. We decided to take our so who is 9. We went on a week day to beat the crowds which worked in our favor. This place charges for parking ($15). $25 per person to get in and you CANNOT bring a cooler in. But when we got to the gate, security said we could bring in one bottle of water per person. Nothing like drinking warm water. Another $15 for a locker!! Lockers are $13, $15 and $18. Food is overpriced as expected. The chicken strips and French fries were decent and large enough for the three of us to share. Lines were short as it wasn't crowded but wait time for everything was well over 30 minutes. Hate to see how long wait is on weekends. Place is getting run down. With all of the other water parks around, I would not recommend this one.
