A bit expensive for families . They really don't have much to entertain those that are watching the kids but don't want to waterslide for the price.

Water country is a nice water park to visit for not being too expensive. The rides do not seem to be changing, however, it is still a nice place to cool off.

We got season passes again this year. I am pleased to say that they seem to have taken the reviews to heart. The bathrooms are better, I actually saw an attendant cleaning the ladies room. And the life guards seemed friendlier this year. We were...More

Water Country was neither great nor was it horrible- it was really middle of the road. We visited on the day of the Solar Eclipse and there was no trash in the water, the lifeguards were attentive and telling children to get off of slides...More

Everyone loves the water fun but good grief they need to spend some of the outrageous parking fee policing the nitwits who feed the gulls. Also install lines to keep them away from the waterfalls. Often too crowded and the rules are strict in strange...More
