A solid waterpark.

I went with a group of friends, and enjoyed my time at Big Surf. The waterslides aren't incredibly big, nor or they incredibly scary, but they are fun. Of the rides, I enjoyed... read more

You pay a hefty price for a short day. It is my opinion that they should definitely extend the hours. Another thing I would like to see happen in this particular Waterpark is that there be at least two nights a week when no kids are allowed so that adults can enjoy say 6 to 10 p.m. no children, relaxation...

My 10-year-old daughter and I went to Big Surf Waterpark in Linn Creek on Aug. 12, the second Friday in August as a part of a weekend trip to Lake of the Ozarks. Based on the reviews and on the waterpark’s website, we had high expectations. We had a good time, but it didn’t live up to our expectations. We... More

Nice small but clean and safe waterpark in the heart of the Osage Beach area. A great place for family fun and relaxation! Love the lazy river. Good food.

I went with a group of friends, and enjoyed my time at Big Surf. The waterslides aren't incredibly big, nor or they incredibly scary, but they are fun. Of the rides, I enjoyed Space Bowl the best. Likewise, the one I did not enjoy was the Rapids, which was a set of pools with slides leading into each, but not... More

This is a nice Waterpark that our family enjoyed. Overall the park is clean and offers all the standard Waterpark fare: wave pool, water slides, etc. There is a nice sized kids' area, HOWEVER, many of the features for the toddler/preschool age kids were broken. Among these were ride-on/bouncy animals that were supposed to squirt water but did not and... More

Big Surf Waterpark is a good place to go, more so if you have younger children. As a 43 yo male it was not that exciting. The rides were fun I will say that. All of the rides there state that the rides are not appropriate for people with neck or back injuries. I have a bad back and neck... More

We had a great time! There are a variety of water slides, a huge wave pool (that looks terribly dangerous so it's a good thing that have lifeguards strictly managing it) and a lazy river that my husband and I truly enjoyed. He is not a water person and even he had a great time. I did not like having... More

Just to be clear, I enjoyed my time here, but there is not much to do compared to most other outdoor waterparks. The price when my family went was $30 per person, I think (may have been $40), and if you wanted to be able to get a tube when they're busy, you needed to rent a tube from them... More

My family had a great day!!! Thanks for a fun and clean waterpark. We will be back next year. My kids really enjoyed all the slides. I really enjoyed that the park is small enough that you can keep your eyes on your kids at all times.

Love coming to Big Surf! They have something for everyone. Such a great and safe place to bring my children and let them swim and have fun. We will be returning quite often!
