“Long lines, too expensive, dirty restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We got the groupon deal. We paid $20 for a full day plus unlimited fountain drinks. The lines were about 30-60 min wait. There were WAY too many people (it was labor day weekend). You pay $7 to park $7-10 for a tube rental, $12.99 for a souvenir cup!!!!!! And a slice of cheese pizza is $3.99!!! I got "build your own nachos for $8.59", they had no chicken..the toppings they had were lukewarm mostly cold..and the nachos had a HAIR in it. So we got a refund, very disappointed at this point. We just have just gone to the Salt River

“Waist of Money & Time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

So disappointed after driving an hour from Maricopa. I think “Hour Lines” said it all for me.. the price, the lines, the lack of attendants personalities, we left after three hours because we were so disappointed and frustrated with standing in a line for 25 minutes to get a tube to only stand in another line for another 40 minutes.. So we headed over to Subway for lunch you know what they said when we walked in the door “ Welcome to Subway” ~ Wet and Wild management seriously needs to take a look at trip advisor and make some changes, cause they’ve just lost another customer plus my two hundred friends not to go.

“Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

I personally didn't have a great time but no fault of the park I just wasn't feeling well that day. My family however had a really good time. In the valley it is nice to have a place to go cool off outdoors in the summer months.

“Wet and not so wild”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

The price was absOlutelty not worth it especially when you pay 40 dollars to enter then another 12 to rent a tube which 85% of the slides need. The lifeguards were all horrible. There was no putting your head under water in the lazy river and fun in the wave pool. Food was all over priced and overall just a horrible experience. My son and wife were both dissappointed greatly. If 0 was an option i would chose that.
