  • Bought season passes (as part of SDC passes) for a summer of water fun. We only managed to go once but enjoyed it nonetheless. Wait times were tedious but to be expected in that type of excursion. 
  • This is the perfect place for a family day of fun during the summer. If you rent a cabana, which you WILL want to book ahead of time, is amazing to have your own private space, a fan, TV, bucket of ic...  read more »
  • I love this place im 16 and i have family of all ages. And everyone always has a great time. I go every summer and it never gets old. Would recommend for all ages. 
  • I loved coming here this summer. I have a teenager and an 8 yr old. They both loved it we got season passes and cam probably 8 times. Lots of slides for anyone over the height requirements. Lazy river and a wave pool to just chill and relax. Then an awesome kids section you can lay and tan while the younger ones do a bit of sliding on smaller slides and shooting water guns and standing under the (water dump). Not sure what that's really called. The fiesta fries were awesome. And the tacos were very good as well. Not big on the salsa. But that's the only negative thing I have to say. ❤❤❤
  • My family and I had an amazing experience today for my son's 14th birthday. We had a great time today. We didn't know until we got there that Veterans get in for free. My husband is a Veteran, so that surprised us. :)The lines weren't as terrible as we anticipated. The staff was extremely energetic, helpful and friendly. Right before going, we went by the Tanger Outlet, specifically Rack Room Shoes, and got my husband and son new water shoes. My husband got a pair of Crocs and my son got a new pair of blue Nike sandals. Naturally, nobody messed with my husband's Crocs. Sadly enough though the Nike sandals went missing while we were in the wave pool. We sure hope someone is enjoying our sons birthday sandals. We know he enjoyed them while he had them. But anyways, we spoke with one of the staff members, after repeatedly looking around ourselves, and she was amazing. She listened to our concerns and showed us where the lost and found area was. Sadly enough, the sandals weren't there. What surprised us though, is that after not finding the sandals, the lady was kind enough to give our son a new pair of sandals from the gift shop, so he wouldn't go shoeless. I wish we had gotten her name because we were so grateful for her today. Thank you again for giving us a very memorable experience. We will definitely be back next summer.
  • The place is overly priced and only has one big pool and that's it. It's a wave pool. The others are for little kids. Then selective on slides. If you have small kids then this is the place to be on ther other hand if you have teens then I'd suggest somewhere else. We spent $113 for two adults and one child. We could have spent $28 at our local pool and had more stuff to do.
  • Good place to go to kill a few hours in Branson, if you are looking for a full day experience, this is not it because it truly is not a very large water park. Most of the slides are good, and the drop slides are awesome. The food and drink is reasonably priced for a waterpark / tourist attraction. I only wished that the wave pool produced bigger waves.
  • White Water is just an all around great park. Great Rock and Pop music, clean, and fun. Kalani Towers Drop Slides: Body Slide - Awesome. 7 stories high at a 70° drop. There is a viewing area provided in line, before the bamboo trees. 40 MPH is the top speed. Kalani Towers Racing Slides: Mat Slide - So much fun! About 4 stories high racing down 4 lanes on a mat. There is a viewing area provided in line, before the bamboo trees. 25 MPH is the top speed. Waikiki Wave: Tube Full Slides - Blue is the only slide in the park that is dark the whole way. Tan has 2 tunnels, so it is longer and not as dark. Everybody likes blue better. Ohana Falls: Raft Slide - Family slide that holds 2-4 people. Pretty fun. It reminds me of the old Waterboggan at SDC. Pipeline Plunge: Tube Half Slides - Left is goes under both slides at the begining with twists, but is straighter. Right does a figure 8. Both fun. Kapau Plummet: Trap Door Body Slide - This slide is really amazing, but too short. It is very thrilling but over way too fast. 70° drop. Feels like I go 25 MPH every time. Aloha River: Lazy River - Best Lazy River I have found anywhere. 5 different water hazards. 3 Water Tower pipes, 1 Tiki Waterfall, and 1 Bamboo Sprayer. Wave Pool: Nice, safe, small waves. Waves come on/turn off every 10 minutes. The timer/clock can be seen every 15 seconds between ads. The ads are very annoying and get in the way. I need to see the timer/clock constantly. Includes Geysers. Coconut Cove: Play area for kids up to 7. Treehouse is 4 feet high. Includes 2 small slides, water features kids control, and geysers. Splashaway Cay: Play Tower for kids 4 to 13, with 2 small kids Half Pipe Body Slides, 1 big kid Half Pipe Body Slide, and 1 big kid Full Pipe Body Slide. Treehouse is 30 feet tall. Includes Geysers, water features you control, water guns, and a 500 gallon Water Box that opens every 5 minutes. Changing Room in the Mens Bathroom is a very small area with few walls that looks like a waiting area. Merchandise like towels are double the price of Walmart. They have Cabanas - Both free and pricey ones. Free cabanas are full of lounge chairs that are first come first serve. Other Cabanas are $125-$200 depending on how big your family is, and how much you hate Walmart. There are 26 rentable Cabanas and 4 rentable lounge areas. They are at Coconut Cove, Splashaway Cay, Wave Pool, Aloha River, and Waikiki Wave. Tubes for all tube slides are provided at the exit and stay at the assigned ride, or you can rent your own tube to use on every slide for $5. Personal inflatables are banned, but Kids Floaties are ok. Small lockers are $6 (plus the $10 deposit for the key). RECOMMENDED: Goggles for all slides. Every slide is MUCH better if you can see exactly what is happening. Ear/nose plugs for every slide to keep water out of the holes water shouldnt be in. Any kind of shoes. The cement gets very hot and they have only 7 sprinklers. Socks are welcomed if they work for you. Shoes have to be taken off on slides unless they have NO traction. Socks may stay on everywhere. Sunscreen so you dont burn, unless you are under a cabana 24/7. A Nylon or Polyester Muscle or Compression shirt so you can walk around and ride all rides without getting burnt, if you forgot sunscreen. NO COTTON OR LOOSE FITTING SHIRTS ARE ALLOWED ON BODY SLIDES. A beach towel to lay on, on top of the chairs and to dry off. Sunglasses for the Wave Pool or anywhere you are out in the sun, not moving much, with not much water splashing on you. The more crowded it is, the harder it is to enjoy, and the longer the lines are. Avoid weekends especially. All slides and pools close when lightning is spotted within 10 miles, but the park will NOT close. Still plenty to do to pass 1 or 2 hours during rain. Plan accordingly. Bring your SDC/WHITE WATER/SHOWBOAT Mug for discounted refills. Buy Season Passes. You will be back many times throughout the year. If you can only make it once or twice a year, use the discounts that are described online.
