Like most attractions, this water park is over priced. The water slides haven't changed at all over the years and could do well with some upgrades. The lineups can be very long. With the amount of people on site Wild Rapids needs to be expanded....More

Took my 7 and 10 year old there and we had a blast. Sure it's old and not in the best shape but the experience is what we were going for and the kids loved it so all around worth it.

We had fun here and the admission price covers all the slides. It's not as big as the pictures made them out to be and hard to find seating areas. Recommend going when they open and don't park in their parking lot as you have...More

Four of us in our mid 20s went for 2 hours. It was a lot of fun, but lineups are long (wait about 15 mins a slide) in urine smelling mouldy stairs. They have to wait until the slider clears the pool before they let...More

OK, so before heading here yesterday we had looked up the reviews and were wondering if we should even bother based on what people were saying. As a 40 year old, I remember going to this park when I was a kid, and loving it....More

it is a nice place to lose a day and have fun, especially if you have kids. But... but.... but... first of all, I'm very disappointed there is not much to do around Calgary, unless you are willing to drive 10 hours. The place itself...More

we visited this park last saturday and were increadibly disappointed. First off they charge $15 parking and no re-entry. Secondly my 7 year old was less than 2 cm over the 4 foot sign and we had to pay full price for him. We all...More

Went on a cooler day, temp just 21, so beat the crowds, and the sun did shine enough to make the experience tolerable. The hot tubs were a God send, to warm up in between slides. This is an old park, so you will notice...More

Starting from the parking lot you could see this place is very run down. It is a lot smaller than it boasts in it's advertisers and doesn't have a lot of grass area to lay on while trying to dry off. The little grassy areas...More

We recently spent Canada Day in Sylvan Lake as a quick "out of town" respite from the noise of Calgary. The lure for the kids was a chance to hit the water slides. Now...I am aware that North America is littered with HUGE adventure parks,...More
