At water country anyone can enjoy it. There is a bunch of rides including a scary high ride called Geronimo. This is kid friendly with great restaurants. I will be coming again

Great rides but very crowded and not cheap. I brought a group of high school girls up for the day and we had fun but the lines were so long we didn't get to ride many rides.

We spend just over an hour dealing with a broken locker. The food was over priced and GROSS. My husband was told to remove his $300 sunglasses by the grumpy 15 year old lifeguard at the lazy river. He refused to take off his sunglasses...More

The park has gone down hill and bad. Paint is chipping everywhere-they close rides when it's 95 out and lines galore-food stations aren't open. The bathrooms=hazardous. The staff is TERRIBLE and rude and management is no better. Will never be coming back. Waste of time...More

Fun place to visit with family, but it can be wicked pricey. I would highly suggest buying tickets on Groupon (which can be a lot lower than tickets at the gate AND you can skip the line) I suggest bringing in your sunscreen and food,...More

OK, so I tried Geronimo once that was enough for me. I'm not fond of heights, or my body leaving a solid surface when I feel like I am free falling. But there is everything from this type of thrill ride to a relaxing, refreshing,...More

Go for the day to make the most of the ticket prices. On warm and sunny days, the best days to go, it can be very busy. I think you can take coolers in so you can have a picnic when you want to take...More

Yes I think this is a great summer activity. BUT if you want to go there it is good, but I would definitely recommend the season's pass. You make your money back in three or four times. The lines are sometimes slow but that is...More

No, not really, the wave pool is rough for a 3 year old and there are really no rides for a 3 years old. He could ride on the lazy river and there are 3 or 4 kiddie water slides, and other things. I guess if an adult wanted... More

Response from weluv2trvlaround | Reviewed this property |
No they don't and the lines are excessively long as they don't tend to limit park capacity. Also as an added word of advise - don't go the last 2-3 weeks of the summer, rides are closed, some pools are closed and they don't... More
