spent 121 dollars to get us in the park, it was over crowded, the staff sucked, and on top of all that, they rape your wallet to get in, but wont allow you to bring food in, they made sure of that by administering a full body cavity search. if they are willing to overcrowd the park, they should bring prices down and not charge 14.50 for a soda. in addition, no child unsupervised should be permitted in that lazy river, my maid of honor and i tried to enjoy it but couldnt because of the unruly bratty kids that found it appropriate to act as if they were the only ones there by splashing and shoving

“Fun for the whole family”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Wild Island is definitely worth visiting if you're in the Reno-Sparks area during the summer. The water park is always packed but very fun and there are rides that accommodate all ages. There is also the Coconut Bowl which is very fun especially for children. It is relatively expensive to get in and food is overpriced but that is typical.

“Reliable Kids' Adventure Park”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Not as pretty as Lake Tahoe or the Truckee Kayak Parks, and way more expensive than the city pools. But kids love it, and the lifeguards are very experienced. Wave pool, and some pretty scary slides.

“Forced to buy their food”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Overpriced entry fee although there is an AAA discount.
You cannot bring in your own food at all, forcing you to buy their overpriced, unhealthy options. We had to pay for a PB&J when I had one sitting out in the car!
There is an additional fee for usage of rafts.
We ended up just going on slides that did not require a raft at all. The toboggans were provided but you had to walk quite a distance to pick one up, then carry it up to the top. They could have used a conveyer belt system like we've seen at other water parks.
Staff were friendly, parking was not a problem (and free).
