Today was my first trip to Water World and I had a blast. I'm a Colorado native but have never made it up to the park until today. I would recommend this place to anybody with a little money to spend.
Travel: I drove up to Water World from Colorado Springs. It was an easy drive up I-25 to hwy 36. From there, we turned onto Pecos with ease and onto the park. It was an easy drive and the parking lot was manageable.
+ There's a ride for everyone at this park. I'm a total wimp when it comes to rides. I struggle with thrill rides and anything with sudden drops. At Water World, I had no problems and was able to venture out of my comfort zones.
+ The water coaster was amazing. It was one of my favorite rides and roller coasters scare me big time. This ride is fast and intense at times. There are 4 falls but none that are extreme. The hour wait to board the awkward raft cars you ride in was the worst part. Otherwise, I think this ride is a must.
+ Food looked good and was affordable. I had a great funnel cake :)
+ The Prank Tank was an underrated gem. It's a splash park where you can spray people and have fun with other hijynx. It's a worthwhile stop.
+ Storm was fun. So was Voyage. They just could have been better. For little kids though, these rides would be ones they will tell tales about for a long time.
+ The River Country area was my favorite. These lines tend to be shorter and move quick. The river tube rides are fast and just the right amount of intensity.
- I needed more time. We were there from 11:30am to closing and managed to ride only 9 rides. We spent the first 3 hours waiting in long lines at Journey. The long lines are rough but usually worth the wait.
- The Hills. Ugggh. I'm in shape and in my mid 20s and it was still a tiring day. Carrying the tubes never got easier.
- The cost could be lower. For the amount of rides you can get on because of the lines, I think $40 is a little steep.
Overall, I would recommend this adventure to anyone. I give it 5 out of 5. I have more fun at Water World than at Elitches.
