There's nothing like a water park for a hot Louisiana day, and this one is especially refreshing, not only for the heat relief offered by its wave pool, raft ride and slides, but also for its noncommercial, friendly atmosphere.

Lost its appeal

Before it was popular it was great but as soon as most people found out about it, it just lost a lot of quality, still fun to go every now and then though.

It was a little old but the kids loved the area for small children only. We arrived early so we also got to do a lot before it got busy. If you are expecting the newest accommodations and amenities you will be disappointed. We liked it because it felt smaller and more like locals place.

The park can get a little crowded but is a blast! We typically show up shortly after the park opens to avoid the lines.

Parking is limited without a long walk. Traffic is also tuff at opening or close. Took Coke cans to get $5.00 off each ticket price wich was a big discount. There was lots of sign in and out of park stating the park rules. There were sherrifs deputies in the park for security. Lots of life guards on duty, they... More

Blue Bayou is run down and filthy. The lifeguard even when alerted by whistle that my three year old son was coming down a slide and would need assistance did not get off her chair to assist. My husband had to jump in to get him out of the water. There was mold on the stale nachos and the popcorn... More

I've driven past this waterpark for years and never stopped in. I figured that it'd be packed, and it's a 2-2.5 hour drive from where I live. Having finally gone (a local bucket list thing), I only wish I'd done it sooner. No too crowded (on a weekday), slides galore, the laziest of rivers to bob on, a huge kiddie... More

Great time, water park was a blast, fun group rides, short weekday lines, the roller coast side was fun too. Food was reasonably priced, lots of shade. Bring coke cans and save $5 per person. Grab a family locker, very convenient. Enjoy

Had a great time with my people. Go on Tuesday to avoid crowds, bring a Coke can to save $5 for each person. Not too expensive.

I have recently relocated to Louisiana and my step son was visiting and wanted to go to the water park and have fun. So we went the first time last week, well we were only able to stay two hours and got rained out. Then we redeemed our raincheck passes yesterday. We arrived yesterday and parked in the far parking... More
