My daughter loves this place. I think it's fun too. But she loves it , it puts a huge smile on her face, and that puts a smile on my face.

“If you are trying to book a party, look elsewhere”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I have been trying for 2 weeks to get someone to call me back to book a party. I have emailed through the website, been transferred to 3 different people and still no answer. I can't believe how poor the customer service is for the water park and booking birthday parties.

Thank you for alerting us to the issue you had trying to book your birthday party at our waterpark. We work extremely hard to ensure that each and every guest receives the highest quality service and prompt responses to their inquiries. On occasion, we do fall short of the high standards we set for ourselves and we apologize for the inconvenience. We hope that our conversation with you over the phone has resolved this issue for you. We appreciate you bringing it to our attention and we look forward to helping you host a phenomenal celebration at the WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort.

“Kids Loved It”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It was crowded, but it didn't seem to bother the kids. The only problem was that the water / chemical level seemed a bit off. The water was cloudy and left us all extremely itchy.

“Nice and warm”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We were stuck in Rapid City during a rare snow storm which closed all the roads, and the hotel we stayed at, had this water park. It was nice and warm to be in there with a blizzard going on outside. Of course, not very crowded either, but has nice slides, clean place even a hot tub to relax in.

“Got Folliculitis from the water!!!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Thought the idea was great to have a waterpark located right next to the hotel - well actually attached to it but in the end I am sorry we went there! Not sure whether it was the water at the slides or in the hot tub but obviously infested with bacteria - which means the wrong levels of chemicals in the water. I saw a previous post for the same weekend talking about Chlorine blasts! Waterpark - you really need to fix this issue! Gross - Ouch and never going back again.
