Kids had a blast. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly. Bathrooms could have used a little more care.

We visited the water park on Monday, 8/3/2015. Let's start with tickets cost, I give that a big thumbs up as I was able to get a one day pass for 24.99 via online purchase (each). Parking is at $5, or $20 for preferred (close to main entry/exit doors). If you have 3+ kids, and coolers, bags, etc... You may... More

I agree with the other reviewers for the same date, but in addition, we saw that someone had defecated on the ground near the locker and tube rental booth. That pretty much sums it up.

My family and I have been season pass holders at Water Country for the past three years and truly enjoy the experience each time we visit the park. We have been at the park on days that the attendance was light and on several days when I believe the park was nearing capacity. Regardless of size of the crowds we... More

I've been to a lot of water parks but not one has been as crowded as this. Lines that take an hour plus even to get into the lazy river!!! The wave pool wasn't working and was so crowded it was like being in a can of sardines. The food lines were the same way. Parking is $5 or $20... More

WAY too overcrowded. 20 min Line to pay for parking, 1/2 - 45 min line to get in the door, lines at all the slides, lines at all the food stands and a line to rent a locker. The wave pool was a disaster waiting to happen. Everyone keeps crashing into everyone else in both the wave pool and the... More

We visited on a warm Saturday in August. Knowing it would be crowded, we planned or arrival for mid-afternoon (2:30), thinking 4 hours should give us plenty of time to explore the park before they close. Upon entry, it was difficult to walk around. People packed into the park (walkways included) like sardines. Think of how it is to get... More

This is a nice water park which simply thinks it is bigger than it is. We went on a Friday in July. 2 booths taking parking fees from cars (outrageous to pay for parking after the high entry fee) caused long tailbacks to get in. Then huge queue to actually walk into the park - unmanaged so people cutting in... More

We traveled 2+ hours and visited Water Country on a Saturday in the middle of July. Of course the place was packed. Up until that day, it was probably the hottest day of the year. We went with over 25 people(adults & children) and rented the Party Deck. Parking: Yes, you pay for parking($5 regular/$20 preferred). We did preferred. Not... More

Fun in the sun for sure -- but has gone down hill since I went there 10+ years ago. One major disappointment was that they only had half the lazy river open -- it has one of the longest around but if you only use half, you are going around in short circles. The dump bucket area was great. Wave... More
