My family always enjoys the Waterpark at West Edmonton Mall.
For $45 we rent a cabana, which is really just a lockable room off to the side. The rental includes 4 chairs and a table that you can pull out into the common area shared by the 5-6 cabana families that day. One time we had a group of about 15 people next to us that rented a cabana and it was quite annoying and loud. They snuck in enough private food to feed an army and proceeded to take over the entire common area, but most times it's just other families like us who enjoy the additional privacy and having access to the Cabana common bathroom.
We've never rented tubes at the Waterpark because there are always a few floating free when it first opens. My advice is always to get there early! For the first hour you sometimes feel like you have the place to yourself. :-) The slides do get quite busy in the afternoon so we do the slides all morning and chill out later.
The wave pool is a great size, but the waves can be somewhat intense for smaller kids and we have issue with the number of tubes out there. It's impossible to be in control of your tube so we regularly see people get smacked down under the water by tubes in the waves. But this is only a problem in the busy afternoons so again we pick and choose our schedule!
The food is always as expected. Normal burgers, fries, hot dogs and drinks. We've enjoyed the popcorn, but the soft pretzels are always stale. You're not supposed to bring in your own food, but everybody does!! The staff never says a word so we started bringing our own in as well. It's much cheaper, healthier and more convenient to have your own.
All in all the Waterpark is a great way to spend the day. Look for 2 for 1 coupons as my family of three generally spends $100 before the cabana rental! Have fun!
