“A great Hype - but not that great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I drove about 175 kilometres with my family to be here expecting it will be a great place. However, it wasn't that great.
Firstly the approach isn't great. A single road and if you are lead by a bus or a bigger vehicle, which will drive at like 20 kms an hour, you will actually spend and additional hour reaching the place. Once you park your vehicle, they claim they have buses to take you to the water park and you end up spending another 30 minutes for the bus. You can walk but its good 2 kms.
When you finally arrive, a huge queue to get in, even when you were pre-booked. So you spend about 45-60 minutes getting in the place. And once you get in , you spend another 30 minutes in the locker queue. And then the lockers are so small that you can't put a middle size sack in it. Well you somehow manage to get pass all this but then you have people every where. Every attraction or a slide you want to visit have a queue and you endup spending 30 minutes in each queue. You dont realisze that you have spent 7 hours and haven't been through all the slides and places.
Food, you do have variety of stuff. Priced nicely. No complains.
I guess the biggest mistake I did was to visit on the weekend. If you are planning to visit make sure its a weekday so that you can spend more time enjoying water than the queues.

“Fun place to go with kids.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I recently visited water kingdom with my teenage boys. The road to Kingdom seems never ending. We got there at around noon. Ticket counter was a bit crowded and so was the Counter for lockers. I found it a bit unorganised. Boys were happy to be in the water. They loved all the slides and had loads of fun. I was a bit disappointed as I had heard a lot about this place. The best in Asia...too huge to cover in a day,..all these statements were not so true.

I can say.. The place is good for One time visit.

“Super fun for all!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Water Kingdom is the place where all kids should definitely go once. Good place for family outings and water ride adventures. Has some really good water rides. The water is salty and causes rashes or some skin allergies. Do not forget to apply ample amount of lotion. But over all too much fun!

“The super cool WATER PARK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

This is am awesome water-park, with many nice rides. But you may Enjoy all of them only if you are 4.6 feet. You see, by my view, the wave pool was a bit boring, and the lazy river too (because I am not one the lazy one's). Anyways, all other slides were superb. The was a slide white from in and light blue from out in the missphisly hill, which one was enjoyable. Then you can go go to the drifting river, if you are tired. But I prefer you to go to the adventurous amazon at the last as once you go there, you will not be able to leave that place. It was a lovely school picnic for me at least .Water-kingdom is an enjoyable place for all.
