Water World, Federal Heights

4.3
#3 of 17 in Theme Parks in Colorado
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.

  • 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.
  • The park is big, but it feels like they start nickel-and-dimeing you as soon as you walk through the gates. For the price of entry, you'd think that the experience would be all inclusive, but even a locker to store your things will have you reaching for you wallet. Do you want a seat with a canopy to block the sun? Better reach for your wallet. I couldn't even find a changing room to get into my swim suit, I had to change in a dirty bathroom stall. All the big attraction rides have you hauling a 20 pound raft up a mile long hill unless you shell out more cash for the premium pass, and those rich jerks will be cutting line in front of you the whole day. A majority of the things to do here are water slides, and the river rides involving riding on inner tubes or rafts form point a to point b. There are no pools where you can just float and relax. There is a big wave pool, but I wish there was a quiet spa area where I could just soak and pass time. Everything at water world is designed to keep people on the move, no wading allowed, just an endless hike from ride to ride, hauling rafts up hills all day until you're too tired to take it any more. I don't think I will be returning any time soon
  • Good place to spend a summer day. Kids had fun too, newer spots have been made for them around the park. Rides are a blast too. Some have longer lines than others but to be expected
  • This is my happy place. It is a large water park with a lot of different slides and pools. The larger rides, that can fit a family, may have long waits, but are fun. The smaller single person slides are normally quick and the wave pools are fun. They have rides and attractions for all ages, and they do a good job of expanding their offering across interests and age groups. It had been a few years since I had been here, and will be making this wonderful place a more regular trip.
  • This water park is very clean and friendly. Parking was free and had plenty of open parking spaces available. They have lockers available too. You purchase the locker coins from the front gate attendant for $1. The afternoon half day prices are much more affordable and totally worth it! Although I saw a few toddlers and babies around the park, I recommend being at least 42" tall to enjoy all the slides and rides. Also we did a lot of walking and I strongly recommend wearing water shoes. We will definitely be back for more fun in the sun!
