This is a decent local water park that will keep you and your kids busy for a day. It is, however, very expensive, particularly when compared to the pass for the entire season for Reston pools.

A great place guaranteed to keep the kids engaged for an entire day. They get you on the food, but it is still worth it.

Loved this water park! Looked up the night before and planned our route from other side of DC. Very reasonable entrance cost for a family day out and free parking too. Took two children 10 and 8 who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Great slides, water features and lazy river that are fun to ride and play. No water depth is over... More

Unfortunately they are only are open from 12 pm -6 pm for only a few more days. You can't book online or buy a ticket a day in advance so you have to wait in line to get in. It is a fun water park probably until age 14 I would say. Definitely more catered to younger kids. The lazy... More

I would have given this park 5 stars, except that the lifeguards permit kids to do most whatever they want in the lazy river. This includes swimming under tubes people are on, knocking into those people, running in the pool and hitting people on the tubes as they go past, kicking people in the tubes, splashing people, and pretty much...

Our little threesome of a five year old granddaughter and her active grandparents enjoyed every minute of our day. There's plenty of room for everyone in the water with minimal waits at the slides and for tube in the circling pool. Lifeguards are visible every 20 feet to keep areas safe. The park is better suited to small fry. Teens... More

This place is gigantic and it can absorb maybe 1,000 people! Getting in takes time, as the queue can be long and the process at the window slow. Once inside you will be amazed at the choices of what to do in the water and where to sit when you are out. There is certainly something for everyone here.

This waterpark is well maintained and employs very attentive life guards. Very family oriented and almost no rough housing in the water. Relaxing for all. I took my teenage son and he loved the lazy river. The pool in the center has some bench seating in the water so you can relax while watching the little ones play. Cost for... More

Even better day spent here than I expected! We chose this park because we wanted water slides & Busch Gardens would've cost $240+ just for admission. We paid $41 for admission for three people. There is something for all ages from toddler to adult--water slides of all sizes and a great lazy river. There's also a huge water play structure... More
