Owner description: The Valley of Waves is the central feature of the Lost City at Sun City. It is one of the most advanced water parks in the world, dominated by the Roaring Lagoon. When waves are not generated, a bobbing cycle is generated in a diamond pattern. All Resort residents enter the park free of charge by presenting their resident cards. Day visitors pay an entrance fee to the park.

Kids had great day on slides but one of big ones undergoing maintanance. Entry expensive so we stayed night for not much more and dntry included for residents. Lockers can be hired at R60 and must have exact change. Everthing was clean. Food cant be taken into valley and expensive in valley so maybe consider midday snack break in car.

We enjoyed the slides and the "fake" sea with it's waves. Highly recommended for relaxing and/or children

A lot was mentioned in the media about how fantastic this place is. After visiting, I feel that this is the most overrated place ever. This has been the most disappointing place in South Africa. Coming from UAE, this is a place of hype which has failed to live up to expectations. Compared to what you pay to experience this, there is hardly any value that you can experience.

As we stayed in The Palace for a week, we definitely wanted to try The Valley os Waves. It was amazing! All the slides, pools and other activities the offer are great!

Maybe I was expecting more but my experience of the various rides was disappointing. I did each once, and was not tempted to go for a 2nd go, even with the minimal queues while there. The slide of courage I found very tame. The tube rides are mostly in the dark which takes a lot of the fun out of it. The wave pool was more like a ripple pool, perhaps that is as big as it gets, maybe my expectations from the advertising hype over the years were too high.

But the water was clean and the staff were attentive and safety conscious.

Generally I enjoyed the Wild Coast water park far more. Fortunately the cost was part of our Cabanas package, I would not have been pleased had I had to pay for entry.
