Our entire extended family visited wings and waves during our recent Portland vacation/reunion. We went to the park on Sunday and there were some long lines, but not any worse than most other water parks. I liked that most of the slides could be done...More

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 went after purchasing a groupon pass-4 people for $87. We went on a Saturday in August. We drove up from Southern Oregon & arrived about 11:00 (park opens @10:00). We took advantage of the picnic tables outside & ate a sandwich before coming in....More

Our family had the best time here! We loved the slides, the wave pool (until it got crowded), and of course the younger kids play area with little slides and a dumping water bucket for the younger ones. The locker system was nice and the...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
