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!

This indoor water park is medium sized with plenty of rides for all ages and level of adventurers. Towels were provided to hotel guests, and a restaurant and a Starbucks are connected. Great for families who want a break from sightseeing or are looking for something to do in the evening

This water park was connected to our hotel. For the kids, it was the highlight of our trip to Rapid City. They were easily entertained for several hours.

We had discounted family rate off season prices staying at a connect hotel. We went in the afternoon and had a pleasant experience. We went Bach in the evening and it was incredibly overcrowded.

This was a great water park for my younger kids. They let adults ride with little kids on the tube slides which all my kids loved! They also loved the zero entry into the pool. I wished they did have more seating around the pool area so you could watch your kids swim, if you did not get there when... More

The waterpark was fun, but overcrowded on a Friday night. We stayed on a Thursday and Friday night. Thursday was packed, but Friday was ridiculous. There were so many people in the lazy river that it wasn't "flowing," and it actually felt dangerous to me as smaller kids were pushed under tubes because they were so tightly packed together. There... More

We recently had to stay in Rapid City for some doctor appointments and we stayed at the La Quinta Inn. The waterpark with amazing our whole family including our five-year-old had a blast. The food and beverage services were convenient and reasonably priced. Our hotel room was very clean and quiet. A great place to stay and have a little... More

Thank you for taking a time to give us a review Luke! And knowing our customers had so much fun in our waterpark is totally awesome! The Family Package Deal which is exclusively available only for hotel guests is really an awesome deal, plus our staff works really hard to provide not only the safety and cleanliness of our waterpark,...

Went with my husband, our 2-year-old daughter and my 28yo sister and her fiance. We had a lot of fun! The lazy river was good for helping my daughter through, and she liked the floor of the kid's area. Not really any kind of a pool for her, but plenty of fun to be had regardless. My sister LOVED the... More
