We go to WaterWorld at least once a summer and we always enjoy our visit. Lots of slides and rides for all ages. Lines can sometimes be long on the newer rides but we always have enough time to ride everything at least once. Many...More

Great selection of rides, with queues pretty manageable (other than a couple). Facilities and general level of maintenance and service far above any European water park we have visited. Food options, although all fast food, were pretty varied and decently priced. Lost River of the...More

We had so much fun at Water World. My oldest kid is 12, my youngest is one. I figured me and the baby would hang out in the pool while Dad and kids went on rides. That was not the case at all. There were...More

Hall your own tubes up the hills??! – 10-15 minute haul for a 3-5 minute ride -- it effectively limits the number of rides one takes especially with more children than adults in a group. At $45+ entry fee they should have a simple pulley...More

Water World is a fantastic water park. Still free parking, and allows entry with picnic items. The rides are great and evolving each year. Gets overcrowded at times, but normal for Denver attractions...

Visited Water World with family in July. Had a lot of fun. Would go there again. Price was ok, considering the wide selection of activities.

We stayed at the La Quinta in Westminster, not too far from there. No bed bugs! Less expensive than most places - a little dated (well, a lot dated) but clean.

Jess, I have not used the cabanas before simply because I didn't have a need for it, but I bet if you call guest services they should be able to walk you through the process and help you choose the appropriate package :)
