  • Very inclusive water park, something for everyone from the thrill seekers to the lazy river riders. Very well staffed.  more »
  • I'll start with the high points, my son (5 year old autistic) did very much enjoy his time in the kids area and the few water slides he was able to go on. If you barely look at the surface it's an ave...  more »
  • This is our second trip to Wet n Wild. The kids enjoy the rides. Good rides for the younger set including a good lazy river.  more »

  • Luv taking my sister and her kids there every year! They need to fix the features in Happy Harbor though. Some of them are chipping and peeling. We love to rent a Cabana every year, however for the money we paid the lounge chairs need to be cleaned better. Most of them had dried old bird poop on them. And the tables and chairs should wiped down before guests are let in the park. Overall every year we enjoy ourselves! Thank you Wet n Wild for another enjoyable year!
  • Brought my 2yo and 4.5yo. They had a blast. Lots of places for the kids to play. There was even. A waterside with double tubes for them! My husband and I never got a chance to ride any of the bigger rides and we still had a great time. Buy your tickets online for cheaper entry.
  • I love going here for the summer time can't wait to go back next year. Missed out past 3 years cause there's not one out in Indiana or Illinois so I had to deal with that. Great food and coupons; even summer passes as well. I know plenty of employees that work there and the really work hard so as far as I know staff is great. Sometimes certain rides may be out of order do to kids getting sick by eating right before getting on a ride. There's bathrooms everywhere you even a smoker section for people in my family that tend to smoke a lot. Great water park to even exist out there which is why I'm going back there around Christmas. Btw the lazy river wad my favorite.
  • Been there 3 times in the past 2 years and love it! The lines are fairly short if you go the right days. I overall love the park ride-wise. All the rides are extremely fun and give me a good rush. The wave pool is fun as well. my friend and I timed it and found they send a wave every minute. Wouldn't recommend going in the lazy river unless you really want to chill. It is very slow and not very fun for thrill seekers like me but very enjoyable if you want to relax. The only issue I had at the perk was with the food. It is fairly overpriced for a theme park. We got food from a place there the first time we went but decided it wasn't worth it, so we started taking sandwiches in the parking lot. Not ideal but didnt effect our experience. All in all it was a fun family vacation and we hope to return.
  • The rides are fun, though mid day it gets so packed it takes forever to get anywhere and on the rides, but that's to be expected. The only con is that the food is super expensive and not the expected quality for the price you pay. Captain Eli's has to be one of the grossest places I've ever eaten. Their food tasted bland and like it had been made three days ago, also their employees are rude! Just bring your own cooler and it'll be a fun time.
