Where will you spend your summer days? …In the natural surroundings of the mountains?...On the beach?...Poolside? Well how about all three! Mountain Creek's Waterpark awaits, with over 2 dozen unique rides, slides and pools set in the mountains of Vernon, New Jersey, just 47 miles from NY City. Experience the thrills of 1,600 feet of pure whitewater adrenaline on the infamous Colorado River Ride, the largest water ride in the region. Leap from the Canyon Cliff into endless blue water, or rocket down Thunder Run or The Gualey, the most supercharged whitewater tube rides you've seen! Drop 40 feet on our Vertigo and Vortex tube speed coasters...in the dark! Plummet 99 feet in just seconds on the H2Oh-No! speed slide. Swing into action on the Tarzan Swings, or race through the dark and shoot out 10 feet above the water on the daring Cannonball. High Anxiety begins with a 5 story drop before accelerating riders into the immense funnel that propels you to panic-inducing heights and a momentary Zero-G experience. It's the shore without the jelly fish! The Hightide Wavepool is one of the largest pools of it's kind, sculpting over 450,000 gallons of water into perfect sets of waves every 10 minutes! Kids World offers more than enough fun to keep the kids happy all summer long. Have a blast in The Spraygrounds, relax in the Lost Island River, zoom down The Hook, or play on our multilevel interactive water play fort, complete with water slides, spray cannons, water hoses, and a 'fishy' shower!

The pavement is older asphalt and pretty rough on feet! Really irritating that the slip-and-slide down the hill is restricted to people over 90 lbs - my rising 6th graders who are nearly 5 ft tall couldn't go because they only weigh 80 lbs. So...More

There are tons of rides to choose from at this theme park. Some of the rides are for toddlers while there are others for adults such as cliff jumping, the Zero-G ride, or the H20-No slide. I had a blast there. Go there, go now!More

Best ride is the Colorado river. You actually need the helmet they give you. Nice rides spread out with a walk that'll make you need to get wet in between. Terrain isn't the smoothest so get some water shoes or tough feet. It gets old...More
