“Very busy but fun for the kids and adults alike”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Best to get there in the early morning before it gets busy, as the lineups can get really long. Food is overpriced and there is always a lot of wasps, so watch out for that. You can bring your own food in, which is a plus. There is also supposed to be a new slide opening next year, which will actually be the first improvement they have made in years!

“Good family fun”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Atlantis is a good place to take young children. Line ups are not too long and people seem to be well behaved most of the time.
Don't go the last week of school. The elementary schools are there for an outing.

“Long lines and wasps”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Pretty disappointing. The place was absolutely PACKED, and it was a weekday. There were only a small amount of slides and a very predictable river slide. None of it was anything special. I realize this is an older place, but for the money they must be making jamming that many people in at those rates, you would think they could renovate. We waited 1.5 hours to get to ride a slide (I did 3 all day). The place was swarming with wasps and therefore full of very upset and frightened children. The staff seemed very bored.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We went to this water park as part of our trip to Kelowna. It's pretty small and there are slides of different sizes so even little kids can participate. I liked the River Riot. Some of the slides were not too slippery and you had to push yourself. It happened to me and my son, but his friend was fine, so YMMV.

As someone else mentioned, the wasps were horrible. I've heard it's been a bad year for them and not sure how much they can do. They do have a nice picnic area and we got there at 10 and got a table with an umbrella, which was really great.

Don't waste your money on the miniature golf. The course is really slanted and the ball doesn't
even stay in place.

They don't mention it on their site (which is pretty lame) but you can get rent lockers and towels. You have to pay a $5 deposit and then there is a fee, which is pretty cheap (like $2).

It does have a nice view and the drive from Kelowna is pretty as well.

“Great Slides Bad Wasps”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The slides were great and everyone had a great time on them. The wasps were extremely bad and 2 of my grandchildren were bitten while sitting in the hot pool. The washrooms were sadly in need of cleaning and repairs.
