Raging Waters is not your latest wiz bang water park but my children (11 & 14) still had fun. You cannot bring your own food and drinks into the park so we had to put our lunch back into the car! $10 parking
The park is tired but children and water always make the best of the situation.

Parking - $10. Admissions varies on the day but is expensive - check online before you go. (overall, the waterpark in Roseville is cheaper.) Can be very crowded on weekends and during the summer and a bit rowdy at night. (I don't let my tweens stay alone.) Food is pricey. Plan to go for the day - you are making an investment!
The kids do love it. They don't seem to mind the long wait for the rides. It's good to go on a hot day as the water always seems to be cold. (especially in the kiddie pool.) We usually go early so I can find a nice chair in the shade to settle in with my book.

I took my son to Raging Waters for many years, and it's sad to see it sort of fall apart over the years. There were efforts here and there to fix and refurbish, but they as often missed as hit, like filling two of the pools in favor of another ride where you have to wait forever. Overall, the place always feels a bit dirty, and the lifeguards, while we appreciate their necessity, are, on the whole, rude and unfriendly. Sometimes you can't seem to walk a few steps before being reprimanded by one for this or that. Food is expensive and marginal, with often very surly service. It's too bad, as Raging Waters could be great.

The only raging here is people who pay the prices for this dirty run down water park. Yuck.
