I would say that my experience with Wild Waves was a fun one but there were a few things that were a definite turn off. Here is my list of pros and cons.
-For the month of June the tickets were only 14.99 per person.
-Rides were fun and there seemed to be something for everyone to enjoy.
-For the most part the park was cleanish.
-The workers seemed helpful.
-They did let you ride one of the roller coasters twice before getting off. (But it was a very short ride)
-If I hadn't gone in June when tickets were cheaper I would say it wouldn't be worth the money. Most of the dry rides were the carnival type rides and were just kind of blah. The water rides and water park did make up for this.
-Even though the park offers tube rentals and locker rentals, the prices for them are outrageous. (About 15 dollars each) I would advise you to not rent tubes. They provide tubes for you for the rides anyway. The only thing nice about having a tube is not having to wait in the line to get a tube. I would gladly wait in line for a tube instead of paying for one.
-The absolute worst part of the day was the walking from one slide to the next. They require NO shoes on the water rides but the pavement is rocky and hurts to walk on. My feet came back with bruises and scratches. NOT OK. Someone could really get hurt. They need to smooth it out somehow in order for people to enjoy themselves walking around.
- The pricing of the food was also outrageous. So eat before you go because you can't bring food in.
All in all we had a good time. It was nice to feel like a kid again. I would say if you are in the area that it is something fun to do for a day. But I also would say I am satisfied with my one trip and wouldn't need to go back again.
