We enjoyed the water park on New Years Eve 2017. Was a great time for us and our seven year old. This is a very entertaining park and very enjoyable.

I love to reserve table for a birthday celebration for my kids in the dining area. They have a great time swimming, sliding, arcading and eating/drinking from a great value menu. Then we feast inside and open the gifts! Makes a very Mermorable Birthday Wish ! Also, the hotel, La Quinta, that is attached to the Watiki Water park has... More

I have been bringing my kids here for years. It's place away from custer to take your kids for fun. I have never had a spectator charge anytime I have came here. So no I have to pay watiki to sit here and watch my own kids this ridiculous.

We thought it would be fun to spend New Year's Eve here at the big party they advertised on their website, Facebook, and the radio, but for the second time now we get there and hours are not as advertised. They closed the park to the public at 4pm and only hotel guests were allowed in for the New Year's... More

We spent a couple of days here in between Christmas and New Years. The kids loved the place and our son spent most of his time on the slides. If you stay for the day, the water park is less crowded in the morning and in the hours after dinner. It's a loud and crowded place, but a great day... More

I love sitting in the hot tub and watching all the kids romp around the park. They have an awesome small kids area. Love the hot tub temperatures, I am a bit older (grandma) and can sit in there for quite a while, very enjoyable. Just have to keep an eye on my glass of wine at my table, dont... More

We spent one night at the adjoining hotel to surprise our 5 year old for her birthday. We had a blast. We got our wristbands early in the day and enjoyed the waterpark before the night crowds descended. There were definitely some concerns with older kids hitting or jumping on younger kids in the activity pool once it started getting... More

The Water park is fun and we've came many times before. But today a younger White Female and Younger Black Female life guard with glasses did nothing when a group of 5 teenage boys kicked some of the kids on the small play area. The boys were also walking up the slides and the smaller kids were running into them... More

Hello there! I appreciate your comments about our waterpark. We are very active on implementing changes that needs to be done to make sure our guests are safe in our waterpark. You are correct, the weight limit for our Koko's Kingdom is 100 lbs, but we still allow adults or older guests if they have small kids with them. That... More

Fun for the whole family. We ordered pizza and hot wings for our dinner and were able to eat at tables right inside. We stayed at the Residence Inn adjoining the water park and were very happy with the easy access hallway between the two places. The only thing i would do differently next time is stay for two days!
