It was super overpriced! It costed $6 for one innertube that no one used. There were wasp nests on the rides. The bigger rides such Cliffhanger, Shark Attack, and Stingray are fun. The other are not as good. The employees are OK. It is fun most of the time.

Go to their website and buy discounted tickets the night before latest before heading to the park. Some rides are real good. Some rides were not working or shutdown due to other activities in the park, which was disappointing. Not the best water park by any standard, but gives you something to do.

I payed 96 for 4 season pass tickets, if you want to rent a tube its $6 for a single and $12 for a double. They have many life jackets for the kids I don't think they could possibly run out. The food is a bit expensive (thats no big shock in a place like this) I think a cabana... More

Waterpark needs upgrading. Also the staff could be more friendly. Asked if they sold swimming goggles and towels and they just looked at me!!. We had to spend over $100 just to provide lunch for 5 people. Food totally over priced, but you are not allowed to bring anything other than water, so you have no option but to pay... More

I bought my tickets online, which was very confusing because it kept on saying season pass, and I got my family a cabana and pizza ahead of time. When we went there, the cabana they took us was filthy, full of leaves and dirt and grease all over the floor. The pools were nice but facilities were dirty, restrooms were... More

This water park is very small, and need of some upgrades and expansion. It's OK water park for smaller children. Older kids may be come very bored quickly.

I brought my kids to Raging Waters and bought the premium pass on Sunday 7/24/16. Here are the positives: the slides work great and were extremely fun. Lines were reasonable for the most part, especially the body slides because most people like the tubes and are too scared to do the body slides. The lockers were helpful and easy to... More

We bought our tickets on Groupon weeks ago and was not informed that in order to get it that we would have to also purchase fair tickets during this week! We paid over $100 for the cabana by the lazy river as that's ALL I like to do. Drove all the way from Oregon and the lazy river is closed... More

This water park is in dire need of a major remodel. Despite renting a VIP cabana for the day we found that the park is overall in shambles. Bathrooms smell like an outhouse, dirty with missing floor tiles and disrepair. The buildings and signage around the park are old and faded. Many things were closed since 2009 including two water...

Has fun water slides. The only reason I rated it four stars is because it has a crowded lazy river, not many inner tubes for the lazy river and wave pool, and wave pool waves aren't that big as expected and crowded with lots of tafinis.
