This is a great family experience if your family loves water! Took the kids and grandkids and what a blast. Not a bad deal either if you buy your tickets online. GO, ENJOY, the water games are fun and just chilin in the Tide pool is relaxing and fun for all.

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 AND OUR LOCKER WAS BROKEN so go figure how many rides HE got to enjoy.... 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 and money!

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, but bring a couple of dollars for a locker and the awesome fried dough!

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, cooling lazy river on a hot summer day. Easy to get to and plenty of... 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 a break from the water.

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 normally on the weekends in the beginning and the end of the summer. We have... More
