We were really excited to visit Wings and Waves for a fun, family day to kick off the new year. The attraction has generally good reviews and is an easy drive from the Portland area. There was a lot of excitement from our boys to...More

The novelty of having a 747 on the roof, from which all the waterslides originate, is fantastic. Our party of seven, three adults and four kids (ages 5-12), had a great time. There are four waterslides, three requiring you to hoist an inner tube up...More

Someone has turned down the thermostat and lowered the water temperature. Sure to lose customers and erase any savings. Don’t go in cool weather.

It has been a couple of years since I was there last, but i found the number of slides fairly limited. The one slides also had really bad ribs at the joints so was quite painful to ride.

Amazing facility and exceptional fun for kids and adults. I have brought my family on 3 occasions during this and last year. The downside is it takes 45-60 min. in line to access a waterslide. I realize that safety is paramount: however the attendants seemed...More

We were there with a 10 month old so I don’t think there’s a minimum age, but there is a height requirement for the bigger slides. The website will have that info. I wouldn’t take a non-walking baby again. Not enough places... More

The pool has a beach entry. You can wheel a chair right into the pool with nothing to get in the way.
