Water World, Federal Heights
(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I had been Waterworld 3 months ago with my family. My sister's children love this place. They had a fabulous time in summer vacation. There are variety games areas. We like the beach artificial area. ...  more »

  • I am a huge fan of Water World!! I have had season passes in the past several years because we loved it so much! With free parking, being able to bring your own food and drinks in, the large acreage and exceptional variety of rides, what's not to love?!! It's a great vacation in the heart of the city!! My kids and I absolutely love each and every visit. It's a "must see" attraction for anyone who loves the water and lots of fun!
  • The manager Cory was very helpful. I wish tube valet was a bit cheaper or included for extra price with season pass holders. Also wish they would get conveyor belts to get the tubes up there for you they definitely take a toll on injured, elder and even young adults and single mothers! Other than that no complaints we are season pass holders and been for years! Oh and I wish they would Offer complimentary ice waters to guests!
  • There are so many great rides and slides here, you won't be able to get to everything in one day. Great place to spend a warm summer day.
  • Tons of fun getting the pass to jump the lines is well worth it. The rides are fun and unique. If you're looking for a rush definitely go down some of their taller slides. Nice people not too restrictive and the lifeguards are a good balance of laid-back and attentiveness that make you feel safe but also allow you to have a good time.
  • Water World is an awesome spot! My son is five, and I'd say that the reviews that say smaller than 42" tall children will have plenty to do might be exaggerating. My son is 43" and there was plenty to do, but also quite a few 48" rides that he was bummed that he could not enjoy. All good as long as your child is 42" or taller. The only thing keeping Water World from 5 stars for me was the Pharoahs Feast prepaid meal package they try to sell you. Definitely don't go for this, unless you have teenagers who can eat all day long. For $14/child you think you will have the pleasure of not having to have money on you all the time, but instead you are only allowed to eat at one, small dining room on the very far end of the property, and you have to walk your kid past a dozen awesome looking food and desert stands to find the place. The second day we just bought food at the food stands and they were reasonably priced - I spent less than $14 and it was way more convenient.
