Water Country has a great variety of rides and pools as well as options for the little ones. It does cost $16 for General Admission to park as well as $15 more if you want a locker however the lockers do have in/out access for the whole day. Our family got 3 day passes on groupon for only $50 each and it was well worth it, otherwise it is quite expensive. Eating is also going to cost you however the park does not allow outside food or drink. The only downside is the first day we were there we were surprised when the park unexpectedly closed at 7pm when we had read on the internet before coming closing was at 8pm. Another downside was that our family of 5 (2, 6 & 8 year old children) wanted to ride meltdown because it was a ride everyone could ride. There is only 3 people to a raft and my 6 year old who is under 48 inches had to be accompanied by an adult as well as our two year old. So I rode with the two bigger kids thinking their father could ride with the baby, however after standing in line for over a half hour they wanted to put our 2 year old in the front and have dad sit in the back which cannot happen our baby is not going to sit up front on a new ride alone calmly. So needless to say our baby was very upset he wasnt able to ride and had to walk all the way back down to the entrance after waiting so long.

Best dea for tickets is AAA! I paid 30.00 per adult and approx 26 for a child. Its 60 per person at gate. We spent a lot of time in the wave pool and lazy rivers. There is no shortage of stuff to do here. It's huge!!! Food was good too, but not cheap. Plenty of seating. Will def return in the area. Lots of water slides and some are for kids. Locker costed 20.00 though, which was outrageous.

We had a blast with our 3 year old! He rode many of the attractions, there were only a few he had to sit out due to height, which we were grateful for! Well worth the money! We spent 2 days here and look forward to our next visit!

We visited this water park twice while we were here. With a chance of rain both days we went right when the opened. Weekends are much more crowded, but still not long wait times. We realized after the first day we missed half the park. Best advice is to walk to the back and see everything and work your way back to the front. Lots of things to see and do. Buy the refillable cups!! You can use them at both parks. We learned the hard way that they are actually free for 24 hours, not just the day you buy them. Be sure they scan the cup. So much more economical than buying drinks constantly. And anywhere with a soda fountain will give you free tap water. That was great to hear, especially when it’s been so hot.
