Fourth time at RW, first time we rented a cabana. Always been a great day, however everyone agreed having a 'cabana' was awesome. Went with our 6 grandy's and had a super fun day. Clean, easy to park (free parking avail), not overly crowded and...More

I only gave it 3 stars because we've spent many summers here with our years of season passes, but this was it for us! It's become too crowded! They give out way too many free passes and don't care about their loyal paying customers. How...More

Went labor day weekend 2016 on a Saturday and the lines were minimal. Not crowded at all and lots of rides. Spent hours there and could have stayed longer. Plenty of good rides/slides and nice size wave pool. Layout is nice as slides are in...More

We visited Raging Waves the week school started for some, which was the week before school started for my kids. We took advantage of the Family Fun Ultimate Advantage Package. For us, it was a good value. Me and my kids, and their friends, had...More

If your child goes to the water park with a pass from their school, expect them to get harassed by the male manager and belittle your child if they accidentally bring their siblings pass by mistake. The adult manager actually told my kid she can...More

Found a Groupon & reviews were right on. Lazy river is huge & covers the park so you can take it to other side for different slides. Only negative not enough staff at check in, waited 30 min just to get in.

The water is cold - but by mid day when it's warm it's fine. If you get there first thing in the morning, you can get through the majority of attractions before the bulk of the lines start. However - it will be colder in...More

Great water rides! Lines were not too long, despite the tempurature being in the 80's. Was fun watching and hearing people having fun, from afar!

Wait to stand in line is so long for each ride -the water is so absolutely freezing you don't want to be in there anyway. You can't stay in the wave pool because the water is so cold. Waste of time waste of money

Parking is adjacent to the water park, you can walk out and walk in anytime. So you can keep your food in the car. You can carry some snacks and water if you like inside the park. But the problem is you need to keep it... More
