Water country is a nice water park to visit for not being too expensive. The rides do not seem to be changing, however, it is still a nice place to cool off.

Everyone loves the water fun but good grief they need to spend some of the outrageous parking fee policing the nitwits who feed the gulls. Also install lines to keep them away from the waterfalls. Often too crowded and the rules are strict in strange...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
