“Fun time, but long lines”

Wings and Waves Waterpark
Ranked #3 of 30 things to do in McMinnville

Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2018 via mobile

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. Besides there being a million wasps attacking us, it was a good plan! The food offered there is pretty spendy. Immediately upon going in, we grabbed some tubes & headed up the stairs to go down some slides! It was disappointing that we ended up having to wait at least 30 minutes, and the wait time only increased as the day went on. The rides are all very fun, but the park is just too crowded on the weekends to fully enjoy it :( Even the swimming pool or wave pool are just too crowded to move around much. It is a super cool space, and the slides are all fun-but they really should consider expanding & adding some more features to make this a better experience!

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 food cafe had nice options for lunch. And the mere fact that this park is aviation themed and actually has slides that come out of a jumbo jet, just makes it that much cooler!

I go up to Oregon every summer to see my family and we always go to this waterpark. It has many slides, but this is for active people. There are lots of stairs to climb but it is DEFINITELY worth it.

Wings and waves is a very nice waterpark. Lot’s of slides. It is clean. You need to get there early as it gets busy and than the waits can be a bit long.

Was shocked to find this great spot when planning a trip to the area. Scored a groupon even! Read other reviews and was a little nervous so we got there at opening to score some seats and get rides in before the lines picked up. Anticipated the worse seeing as it was a Saturday in the summer and there was a groupon out but all those worries were unnecessary because we had a blast! Longest wait for a line was maybe 15 minutes. Very streamlined. Food was reasonably priced and pretty tasty considering the venue.
My only complaint is that the workers do NOTHING to ensure fairness with the tubes. By noon all of the tubes were gone and if you looked around the water park you could see them stacked at peoples tables. I asked several people if they were done using theirs and was told no, yet I’d see them sitting there unused for hours. I don’t know how this is acceptable. These aren’t rented tubes. It would not be too hard for one employee to continue to make loops around the water park and pick up tubes sitting around people’s tables so everyone gets to use them instead of people waiting In the tube line hoping the next person down the slide was ready to give theirs up. Seems like a really bad practice.
