Owner description: Cultus Lake Waterpark is BC's largest Waterpark. Located approximately 90 minutes from Vancouver, in the popular and beautiful recreational destination, Cultus Lake. We are a family oriented park and provide our guests with rides for all ages. For those thrill seekers out there, we have some of the most extreme waterslides such as the Valley of Fear, Bazooka Bowls, Speedslide and the Freefall. With all of our great attractions and continued expansion, you need to come out and see for yourself why Cultus Lake Waterpark is BC's #1 Waterpark. Food is available for purchase, and there are plenty of picnic benches and grassy areas for those of you who are not wanting to waterslide. We also have a selection of hot tubs and spray parks / kiddie areas.

“Long lineups & short rides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

The rides are just awesome, wish the lineups were shorter. Took all day to do the circuit to cover all the slides. They must make killer money....lineup to get in all day long. Yes $5 to park, 29 to get in, $5 to park. Would love to go back on a slow day.

“Fun, fun, fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

I have been going to these water slides for several years, but missed the last couple of years and things have really improved! They have added more, amazing slides, although they were already fabulous! it was non-stop fun for everyone in the family. lineups seemed smaller with the addition of more slides. We stayed there for 8 hours and could have stayed longer if we didn't have other plans. The $29 was worth every penny for he kids. I think they should offer guardians/parents/supervisors a reduced rate. I didn't get a chance to go on many slides as I had kids in different directions all day so the $29 was not worth it for me. i spent lots of money there that the kids would not have, if I wasn't with them, so they should reconsider a guardian rate.

“Family Fun finally found in Chilliwack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

I have been traveling up to visit family in Chilliwack for 14 years, this was the first time I had ever visited this park. Can't believe it took us this long to have fun in Chilliwack. My 3 kids, 11,10&7 along with 2 nephews 13 & 11, and 2 nieces 16 & 10 & grandparents all had the best day of our vacation here. If you have tall kids prepare to pay full price for even your 6 year old, but it is worth it. Don't bring drinks in non-see-through containers because it will be dumped out, HOWEVER, they are one of the only amusement/water parks who allows you to bring in your own food and drinks!! That is massive plus!! With a family of 12 that can save you a couple hundred dollars when you are there all day long, and everyone knows how hungry you get after climbing tons of stairs and being in the water.
We got a $10 locker to store our valuables. Rented a large stand umbrella for $5, which is worth it when its hot and you didn't get a spot in the shade. There are tons of places people set up their tents and blankets all around the park. There are some incredible shady places if you take the time to look.
Bathrooms were clean. Food prices weren't that outrageous if you choose to eat in the park, Hamburger & fries & drink about $10.50, which is cheap for park food.
About 15 different slide options to choose from along with a very crowded lazy river and 4 or 5 hot tubs spread throughout the park.
The Bazooka Bowl is the most advanced and the men and older boys loved it. Tube rides were fun and the 5 person raft ride was insane, definitely the whole groups favorite. Just hold on!
We can't wait to go back, probably when it is colder and overcast, the. The lines will be shorter. But for a crazy busy day we all got our fill of the rides and were exhausted by the end of the day.
You will not be disappointed.
I highly commend the owners and management of this establishment. They have truly done an outstanding job training their staff the art of excellence! They are friendly, helpful and exude joy in their jobs. The trash can directly in front of us was constantly monitored and changed out at least 8 times the whole day, and that was what we saw when we were taking breaks from the slides. The only thing better would for them to add a huge wave pool like wild waves, but beautiful Cultus Lake is right across the street so we got our fix the next day.

“fun in the sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Great place to take your kids on a hot day - they are safe and can run around you can read a book and take a dip or a few rides with them for fun

It it a bit pricy - we used to do the half day

“Rip-Off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This place pretends to care about families having fun, but they clearly don't with their policy that non-riding parents and grandparents have to pay $29.00 each to watch their children have some fun!!! So we sit outside in the parking lot while the kids play alone inside.
Quit pretending to be a "family oriented business" and just admit it - you are successful business sharks.
