We traveled to the area to check out Loon for potential skiing the following winter. We were surprised to find a water park. Checked in to the resort next door and headed out for a fun day in the water with the kids. The kids were engaged all day and didn't want to leave.

This place is ok. If you had small kids not so much when you have teenagers. Food consignment stans are overpriced. But still would go back with small children. Pricing is reasonable. And they have enough rides.

This can be a fun spot but I wouldn't pay the full price for it. Better for younger kids but older can enjoy it too.

Great fun for the kids. Safe and clean we let our kids loose on the park and they all had a blast 6 to 13. We were there on an August Saturday which was busy but still not crazy. One tip get their early to get good seats or bring your own.

Whale's Tale is very clean compared to other waterparks I have been to. Also, the lines do not seem to get crazy long like other places. The staff is very friendly and polite, and we overall just had a great day there. The only drawback I am aware of is that for what I spent for lunch at the cafe,... More

We had a wonderful day at Whale's Tale Water Park with our two children, ages 11 and 7. The water park is not huge (we have enjoyed larger water parks like Water Country U.S.A.), but I found this park was the perfect size for our family. So beautiful to have a water park in the mountains and it was fantastic... More

We went on a Saturday in August and I expected the place to be mobbed but we had no lines at the ticket counter and we got right in with no hassles. I wish we lived closer. I'd bring my daughter here all the time. It's perfect. Something for all ages and yeah I saw parents lounging on the chairs... More

Park is very clean. Wave pool is fun. Slides were some what daunting for our son though! Lots of places to sit or lounge. Lines were not bad at all.

Was there earlier in the week and really liked it. I didn't go in the water but my son and grand kids did. The place was clean and the help was friendly. Ate in the snack bar and food was fair, but that's not what you go to a water park forI would say it rate right up tere in... More

We've been to this park several summers now while on vacations. The kids love all that there is to offer and I cannot believe how much they have in a small space. It's easy to keep track of the kids, tons of lifeguards, and always clean. Can't ask for much more than that.
