“Very nice time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

First & foremost it is important to distinguish between something that is run down and something that is dirty. Could this place use some updating, no question. But is this place dirty as some reviewers have indicated...absolutely not. The place was crystal clean and inviting. The staff were all friendly and very observant. Is the entry fee a fair price? I would say it is a bit overpriced, but the fact that this place is so quiet and no line took over 5, 10 minutes tops, it is worth the few extra bucks to not have to stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for a 30 second ride. The rides were great and just enough to keep us all busy for 5 hours before the kids were ready to call it a day. Overall, I would recommend this place for families looing for a nice day at a water park without all the hustle and bustle of a big time amusement park and the costs that go along with it. Be sure to call 518-668-0023 before buying your tickets and asking for the days discount. They'll take your name and you give it to them when you buy your tickets for the discount. Strange way of offering a discount, but this is how they do it.

“overpriced and under hours”

overpriced for someone in a wheelchair, who can t do anything but watch his children have fun, and their only open til 4 o'clock, which is hardly worth the money for an all day pass..

“Good place if you have kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Water Slide World had good selection of slides for smaller kids (ages 9- 10) as well as two good areas for toddlers (ages 2- 3). The slides itself are decent but if you're looking for more excitement, would recommend looking at other places

There isn't much shade at the park so highly recommend bringing lots of sun tan lotion as well as your own umbrella on a hot day

Compared to other attractions in the area, this place felt like a good value for the money (i.e. have fun w/o breaking the bank)

“Save your money.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Save your time and money go somewhere else. Try Lake George Beach, your hotel pool, or Great Escape and Splashwater Park. Most of the slides were older and in disrepair. The lazy river was a little dirty and grimy

“Needs updating but a great time!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We traveled with our kids age 4 and 7 years old. Our son was not allowed to bring in his personal float. He needed to wear a water vest. This is a great place for a half day and there are chairs and lounge chairs provided for your family to leave items.

They have a locker for your personal items. The snack bar is cash only.

Many of the water slides should get a serious paint job, with many slides looking old with chipped paint. Look for the coupon books in town for a small discount. Credit cards are accepted for getting into the park.
