July 2023

I was really excited to try Sylvan Lake Aqua Splash and have wanted to come for years and finally got the opportunity to. I went with my kids aged 15 and 9. Everyone has to wear a lifejacket and be able to swim. Kids under 8 have to be accompanied by an adult. Price is the same no matter the age, we did the one hour which I found plenty long enough and it was about $18 per person. There is also an early bird rate when it first opens and an evening rate or all day.

It's harder than it looks and a little frustrating because there are a lot of people that push and shove and go ahead of you even if you are politely waiting for your turn. Nothing is done about this from the people working there, you should not be pushed off by kids playing their games, it's rude and my daughter got her arm hurt by this. There also should be only one direction to go because when you have obstacles and people going in both direction trying to take turns to get across them makes it frustrating.

I had fun but it was at full capacity when we went and I would not want to do that again. It clouded over when it was our hour out there and I found I was very cold at the end of the time, you also have to swim out to the aqua splash area so at the end of the hour when I was already cold it was not great swimming back but it's not a long swim at least.

This review is based on my opinion, all of mine are but everyone else I was with loved it. So listen carefully and keep this review in mind. I was super excited because it was my second day in Sylvan Lake. Then I go on it and I’m like I already don’t like this. I kept falling and the lake was cold. Maybe if it was a bit warmer it would have been better. I was only in for 20 minutes before I left. I thought I was going to get hypothermia. I was freezing my jaw was so soar you can’t even imagine and my ankle was soar. The lunch I had cheered me up luckily. I had a delicious crispy chicken burger. It was okay. Thai what happened when I cam out. I was breathing really heavily, I was in pain, I was exhausted and I was freezing. You half to swim to the facility and it is not as good as other ones I have done in the past. A solid three stars from Ellie Reviews!

Could not say enough good about the staff here! They went out of their way to accommodate our group of 19. Excellent customer service on July 9, 2023. Kids had an absolute blast and they made organizing our big group a breeze.

Easy to find as it is right on the lake but if you come on Farmer's Market Day their parking lot is reserved for the market so parking might be more challenging. Changed since we last went; now is an inflatable aqua park. Mat going to the aqua park is great but there is a bit of a gap so you should know how to swim. At around $18/hr, it is reasonable for an hour's activity. Looked like fun! Lots of spots for parents to watch from a distance or to picnic. There are change rooms but they are hard to find, unfortunately. All in, fun day!

Great place to bring children 9 and up. I seen some children younger than this having a horrible time trying to stay on or being pushed off. Try and go during the week because we went on a Saturday and the lines we're so long and too many on the aqua splash. No beach, there is a small tiny beach to the left full of rocks. Lots of space for a picnic even on busy days. They gave us freezer which was nice while we waited in line. Be sure you do up the waiver before standing in line. You have to do one per adult. On busy days you can only buy per hour. 2 hours was plenty for us. If you have any previous knee injuries wear braces as I twisted my leg because the surface gets so sloppy with many people on it. The lifeguard did nothing and looked away so be sure your with another adult to help you. There are 3 platforms to get up easily. You have to swim about 6 meters to get to the aqua splash. My kids had a blast on this and would take them again. Go at 10:00 because you have to pay for parking and get in line which took us about an hour. After the main line you have to wait in another line to get on.

I tried to pay for half day at 2:15 and they said that they can’t because it has be 3 sharp. Waited in line again and one of the debit machine failed and when I came to pay at 3 sharp they said it all sold out. So not happy with the service and the mis-advertising. Its scam and waisted my time. If I knew from the beginning I wont waited the 45 min.

There were a couple of problems with my sons and grandson's visit - first of all, the weather has been quite cool in Alberta and the lake is very cold for July. My young grandsons - age 7 and 6 - were freezing/shivering within 10 mintues of the experience. In addition, this activity is definitely not for young children - both of my sons suggested children should be at least 10 years old to enjoy this event. You are also going to want to go when the day is very hot.

If you or your kids want a good fun workout this is the attraction to take in. Of course you will have to wait till the summer months but don't forget to give this one a try. Park to the west of Chateau suites where the old water slides were. Not as big an attraction as the water slides but very good clean fun.
