“A great Family Outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Although $30 may seem pricey at first, it is worth every penny. You can stay all day and the kids are very worn out from climbing those stairs. The lifeguard staff are very professional and enforce the rules which as a parent, I am very happy about. I saw a little girl fall over face first in the wave pool and the wave pushed her face about 6 feet across the concrete. Within seconds the lifeguards whisked her away into the first aid room. I was really impressed!! The only reason why I would not give them 5 stars is that I wish there would be a medium sized slide. They are either really big, or really small.

Another thing, the food at the concession stand is affordable which is so nice. However, you can bring your own lunch and eat it outside (you can't bring it in.) There are picnic tables in the back of the parking lot.

“super fun for whole family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

super fun and a one of a kind experience. It is a little expensive but if you have a AAA card you get a discount. They do not advertise this so you have to tell them and it makes a big difference! I would only go on a rainy day in oregon and less people on a weekday for sure but still super fun.

“Fun family attraction just go early or later in afternoon to avoid big lines for the slides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Went for first time with kids during spring break. Overall had a good time but was very busy. Only got four turns on the slides as lines take on average 30 minutes or more foe each slide. Maybe just really busy from spring break? If did over again would go right when opens or later in day as seemed to start to really clear out after 4 pm. The wave pool and other swim pool are nice temperature and spa is nice. No wait for the little kiddie slides and my little one liked the water guns.
Tips: buy a large locker as the medium is too small for fam

“Really cool waterpark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

You have to love a places that makes a check in counter look like a wing. Of course when I set my camera on it , it almost rolled off! I caught it in time.

There is a real 747 sitting on top of this place. It doesn't really sit on the roof, rather it has its own support system all the way to the foundation. Your kids will love this place!

“Great family fun all year long”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

This indoor water park is an excellent way to spend the day, there is something for everyone. 4 big water slides coming out of a 747 jet on the roof. A big wave pool, large water play structure with kiddie slides, hot tub and a regular pool. In addition to the water fun there is a hands on science center, arcade and restaurant. Everything you need for a day of fun is right there!

Evergreen is situated in the heart of Oregon wine tasting country and McMinnville is a quaint little town. We can't wait to come back!!
