We spent two nights at the Wilderness resort, so of course we enjoyed the Wilderness waterparks! Admission to the waterparks is included in your room rate. You can not buy day passes to the Wilderness waterparks, which helps cut down on crowds.
The waterslides are fun,and the lines move fast. The lifeguards were attentive for the most part, but one lifeguard wasn't watching close enough and a little girl (looked to be 2 or 3) went down one of the "treehouse" slides before she was supposed to. I had to point out what had happened to the lifeguard as the little girl went careening down the slide right behind another kid. The lifeguard did immediately blow her whistle to alert the other lifeguards that there was a problem. Fortunately the little girl appeared to be fine. No idea where the girl's parents were in all this.
There are several big whirlpools (kids can and will get in too), and a lazy river that is not nearly as big or neat as the outside lazy river at Glacier Canyon. Also a big wave pool, with huge waves. Watch out, because it's easy to get knocked over by the waves or by other people riding the waves.
Seating can be hard to come by, and the food in the waterpark areas is gross. Floors can be extremely slippery, especially in the bathrooms.
