  • We had A lot of fun at wild waves. The slides are very very good. We went on a Monday so the lines were not long. The water in all of the slides is formed. The old wooden roller coaster is also a grea...  more »
  • Its a 40 min drive from Bellevue / Redmond area. Even with average traffic on a sunny weekend, we have usually got to our destination in under 45 mins. Good value for money. even better with MS Prime....  more »

  • My family and I enjoyed the experience Wild Waves offered us on one of the hottest days of the year. I do feel they ask too much for admission only because EVERYTHING inside is overpriced as well. I understand that prices are set that way for the park to thrive but there has got to be some give somewhere. Again, I had a wonderful time and I will probably return. I would advise bringing your own food and eating out of your car though. Thankfully you can get a stamp on your hand on the way out so you can get back inside.
  • Extremely over priced and terrible balance of supply and demand. They can't even figure out how to have guests enter the parking lot smoothly. About a half mile before the park entrance, two hours after opening, the lines started and didn't die down till the last hour. Not enough lockers or inner tubes, for a price not even mentioned on line. No discount when the cheaper ones are sold out. The majority of employees are rude, probably because they're underpaid. I know, I used to work there and I know the owners. Only worth it if you get a season pass and live close per go at least three times. Wild waves is a Disneyland wannabe with a water park.
  • We got free passes from our library for Wild Waves. As far as water parks go, it's pretty good, with bonus amusement rides that are pretty fun. I wish there was an activity pool (other than the wave pool) where big kids/adults could just play, with features like waterfalls and such. And the layout is a little weird, but we had fun. I don't think I would pay full price to go, however.
  • Second time we were there this summer and the wave pool is not working , the generator has been broken since the begin of summer. A lot of the rides were closed. For the price you pay, you would think they would fix these issues. The water is extremely cool, its like they do not heat water anymore. Very disappointed this year. I do not know if we will be returning next year. Bathrooms need to be cleaned on a timely basis, very disgusting and trash cans need to be empty as well. Its not like it used to be... clean, friendly, organized. They simply take your money and have stopped making any improvements, it's a shame cause we used to look forward to going there every summer. Good bye seasonal pass! Thank you
  • This place is extremely fun. It is very pricey though. If you are only going for the day, make sure you get there when it first opens and stay as long as you can deal with staying. Really get your money's worth. All the concessions can be a little pricey too. I would suggest getting the season pass if you are going to go more than once in the year. You get a lot of perks, particularly if you buy it during the early sale in Fall. There is a lot of parking but the close spots fill up quickly. I had so much fun playing in some of the water rides that I couldn't stop laughing.
