We had been in Wichita for 2 weeks of high 30s temperatures when we discovered this place. The car was showing 41 degrees when we arrived so we jumped straight in and it was wonderful. There were plenty of shaded areas - there were even air-conditioned parasols, perfect for those who can't deal with the heat. A total of 5... More

Took my wife and two daughters, ages 11 and 14. We all had a blast. Very reasonably priced. It was well maintained and staffed. All were helpful and friendly. Good rules for everyone. There was something for all ages. Lines went quick for slides. We drove 2 1/2 hours on the way to KC and had to try it out... More

If you want to read a book while the little ones swim, doesn't matter, you have to pay to get in the gate. Their rules are super strict, you can't get off the tube in the lazy river ... I do not enjoy going, it's overcrowded, too small, and too pricey. You are way better off going to the local... More

Took the grandson and a friend here this summer. Several pools for all ages. A lazy river and slides. Shaded area by the concession. Admission and food prices are within reason.Plenty of lounge chairs. Will go back again next year.

We enjoyed an especially hot and busy day here. The staff was very helpful and polite. We took teens and adults, and enjoyed the lazy river, slides, and diving areas. Be aware that you cannot have any metal or sharp objects on your person or swimsuit if you want to slide. That includes wedding rings, glasses, and metal rivits on... More

Located in a southeastern region of Sedgick county, RRR has several areas of entertainment tucked away in a heavily developed commercial area. Away from main road, it is a costly family outing which most families can only do once or twice a year unless you are from Derby and get the $65 yearly pass.
