Fun for the kids!

Took my four children here and we all had a blast. The pool, lazy river, and slides were all fun, clean and kid-friendly.

Utah is really too cold for this place because it's always windy. But the kids and pre-teens will probably look past those shortcomings. Even if I had little kids and pre-teens, I would not get a season pass to this place.

We unfortunately bought a season pass to Cowabunga Bay. We enjoyed the lazy river and kiddie pool. The problem is when you climb up to the location. Draper gets a lot of wind along that corridor and when you are wet, you really get cold. Plus you have children squirting you with cold water and dumping it on your head... More

We went at the end of the day after 5 to just enjoy the "lazy river" just fine for me and Grandma. Lots to look at they went over the top with all the water slides "pipes". Very visual, lots of different colored tubes, fun to look at.

The park itself isn't very big, but they have some very fun water rides for the whole family. Food prices are resonable for the size of the park and tickey prices are great. A great place for the whole family.

The best part about Cowabunga Bay is that the water slides end in a long extension of the slide, not a big pool. I feel my kids are safer in this type of slide and less susceptible to drowning (you still need to watch your kids!). It can get very crowded so I would recommend calling to find out when... More

We live to try different water parks. Have been to all in the state. Even though this lack some major thrill slides overall you will have a great time. Parking is also free unlike some other places. We really enjoy the cleanliness and the water park isn't as crowded as others. Has great snack bars and cold treats to eat... More

This is an ideal water park for parents with children under 12. It is not overrun with teenagers and young adults, so you feel comfortable bringing your children here. Season passes bought on sale are the way to go, as one time passes are pricey. Season ticket holders have a few early openings and can purchase discounted buddy tickets. In... More

Cowabunga Bay is the cleanest water park, love the lazy river and plenty of free tubes to use, and the slides are a riot without pools at the bottom of them. The worlds biggest splash is the kids favorite, they even have the pictures of other water parks smaller buckets in China and PA. Fun decorations and atmosphere with beach... More
