“Not impressed.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We went labor day week end. The crowd wasn't very big, so we didn't have to wait in lines for very long. 3 rides were closed, including time wrap, which seems to be an ongoing problem. I wasn't impressed with it being the largest water park. It seemed old, not taken care of like it should be. It was dirty. They need to clean and hose off the concrete/asphalt.Food was very expensive. You're not allowed to bring food or drinks in. Would I go again, NO.

“Stingray is a must”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Fun water park, only negative I can think of is closed rides. Thought going on a Mon/Tues would result in less traffic/shorter lines etc. etc.. Which was true, but on those "off" days they close a lot of the rides, and only operate 1 or 2 lines rather than staffing full and keeping traffic moving.
Food available for purchase is terrible and terribly expensive. Bring your own!
Great water park tho!

“Largest WaterPark? Even With Closed Slides?”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We went to Noah's Ark and stayed for 45 minutes before we decided to spend our day actually having fun. Multiple slides were closed, only one food shack was open right by the entrance, and just overall not fun. It's the worlds largest waterpark because of the square foot. Doesn't mean they have more rides. You end up walking 10x as long then actually riding any rides.

“Water fun”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Had a good experience during the last week of August when some children are returning to school and temps were still hot. Crowd was manageable. The Time Warp ride was not operational which was disappointing. The Black Anaconda line was probably the longest and could possibly be managed better by having a singles line. Overall a fun time.

“End of August is the best time to go!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great waterpark to spend the day with our family. My son's favorite ride was the scorpion's tail. His first time trying a looping waterslide!! He loved it! We stayed at the Great Wolf lodge in Wisconsin Dells and they offer discounted tickets to this waterpark so we bought them through the hotel @ 20% off. Great day for the whole family. I would suggest bringing water shoes, there's alot of walking on hot concrete, my feet were killing me even before lunch. We went in the last week of August and it was perfect, never had to wait more than 20 minutes for the best rides in the park. School for us starts back up on Sept 4th so we like to go somewhere with the kids in that last week in August just before school starts and it's great because the american kids are back to school already so the park is not busy at all.
