Trip Planner:   USA  /  Colorado  /  Federal Heights  /  Water World

Water World, Federal Heights

4.3
Experience wacky slides, massive wave pools, and family-friendly games at Water World. The park spans 27 hectares (67 acres), making it one of the United States' largest water theme parks and providing plenty of room for its 49 attractions. Easy-going types can float down the lazy river while thrill-seekers should opt for some of the roller-coaster style slides. Many will be familiar with "Voyage to the Center of the Earth," the park's most famous slide, which features an animatronic T. rex and lasts more than five minutes. Take advantage of one of the dining options, including pizza, burritos, and classic all-American fare, or pack a cooler to save a few dollars. It's a good idea to bring sandals, as the textured floor can be rough on bare feet.

  • Larger than I was expecting. We spent all day there and it was one of the best times I had all summer. Bring your lunch and save some cash. Get there early and snag a good spot. Pay the extra to skip the lines, it is definitely worth the price.
  • Wish there was a way to enjoy their facilities yearround! We always have a great time here, I have to say the giant wave pool is my favorite! The gondolas are awesome also. The concessions are not the cheapest but could be way worse. The new bracelets to get in and out of the lockers were awesome! We will most definitely be back.
  • A fun water park with fun rides. Bring a cooler, but expect it to get searched. Be advised, some of the rides require you and a group of people bringing a large inner tube up a hill to the start of the rides. Not all of them but some of the best ones. If that bothers you, it shouldn't. Make friends with your line mates and have them help you.
  • I worked here for 6 years and have made it a habit to visit every summer since. The park has always been clean and fun and they seem to always add something new to make it better. I love the rides and environment.
  • This is the best water park in the southwest. Several themed rides and an all around great time for family to spend the day getting wet and having fun in the water. Well worth the drive from Albuquerque and well worth the price of admission.
