We purchased season passes for our children and grandchildren last Christmas. They loved it so much that we bought another package this Christmas. The Family pass is a great deal: free parking-free entry-locker and tube pass (was 20.00 dollars extra), plus they get 12 passes for their friends. Also, discounts on the food items. This is a great gift idea!!!

My Grandchildren and I, ages 11, 9 and 68, had a great time! We got a tube and spent most of the time in the wave pool, but also went down the large slides several times. We went on the lazy river, but it was a bit too crowded so back to the wave pool. We simply had a wonderful... More

We really beat the heat at Raging Rivers water park in Grafton looking out at the river, floating around the park, splashing in Hurricane Harbor or in the pool with the wave machine.

My first visit to this park was as a teenager over twenty years ago. I loved it for the beautiful view of the river and the not so crowded park. As an adult, I like the park because it is kid friendly. Toddlers through teenagers have a good time here. It is a tourist attraction, so entrance is pricey, food... More

A great place to go with friends, family, or alone. You can sit up on a lounger and look out over the river. It's beautiful. The water slides are fun, and there are water tubes to just float around a lazy river if you like. Plenty of seating and umbrella tables.

Amazing water park with many things to go and do for everyone in the family. Look for coupons online and on bunny bread. It's clean they are constantly running and picking up the ground crew

We live three hours away and wanted a water park relatively close to home. STL hurricane harbor seemed pricey and would likely have been crowded on a hot summer day. Raging Rivers had many positive reviews. It did not disappoint! My boys ( ages 10 & 12 ) loved it. The wave pool turns on about every 15-20 minutes. A... More
