Magic Waters Waterpark is a family-friendly, outdoor water park with high standards for safety, cleanliness, and friendly customer service. Magic Waters is conveniently located just off Interstate 90/39 in Rockford, Illinois, near the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin border, not far from the Chicago area. The waterpark is home to Illinois' largest wave pool, a 75-foot tall speed slide, and much more!

Coming from a dude who loves water, this place has been a disappointment every time I have visited. Dirty lazy river and wave pool. Very few attractions. $7 gets you a locker slightly larger than a cereal box. Go to Noah's Ark or Mt. Olympus...More

Would you recommend reserving a cabana for a small family or is there plenty of seating available around the pool deck area? We would like to bring a small cooler with lunch as well and wanted to keep that with us.
