This place is great for kids! If you over 20, you pretty much only need 3 hours in the park. Tickets are 2 for 50 at Costco. With people complaining about slide burns... It's a water park.

It's a little pricey if you pay full price, so we got tickets for $24 a piece at Costco. We also parked for free right outside the gates, so that saved us another $17. My kids love the water and there are several attractions just...More

There's better ways to spend your money. $38pp plus $17 to park. The online deal us a scam. It says you'll save $8pp but then they'll charge you a $7.99 "handling fee". The lines and long and slow moving and the park is only open...More

we have been a few times and this is the first year we got a cabana! Service was great! Kids wanted to be near the wavepool, however not so great when the alarm sounds and the waves start, gets loud! But still an awesome time!

Don't buy tickets on line. It use to save you time and money (not any more). Cabana's are expensive, food is bad quality and very costly. Cabana's do guarantee a shady spot, someone to get your food/drinks rather than standing in line for hours, an...More

Hi..can anyone help me out with the price of cabana rental ? We are planning a family trip in July to Disneyland and will have an extra day in Southern California and thinking about the water park but obviously their site doesn't have any info up yet for this season and we want to know what all of our options are before we make any reservations anywhere. Thanks!

2017 pricing for both parks isn't on their website yet. The only info available are 2017 season pass pricing for each park. I would call 714-220-5200 to see if they might tell you when the water park site posts pricing.
