  • We spent 8 hours walking and seeing a very nice and well kept zoo. The animals look in good conditions and healthy.  more »
  • We have visited Zoombezi Bay a few times and my kids love it. Lots to do for all ages, they even have a grown-up lazy river.  more »
  • This water park is paired with the Columbus zoo. The two together make a great weekend trip for a family. The water park is fairly standard but well maintained and usually busy without being overly cr...  more »

  • The zoompass ruins the when you get over entitled kids cutting every line including ones they shouldn't the bathrooms were awful
  • It's a good place to take kids and let them enjoy the waterpark. The food is pricey and not very good. I decided to pack this year. Parking can be a hassle because so many people from Ohio go there. I do not ride the slides because the lines are so long. Overall if you get a season pass it is worth it. You get free parking and admission to the zoo and the water park, so you get your money's worth even if you only go 2x with a season pass.
  • Great place, a lot of stuffs to do for adults and kids. Nothing better on and hot August day then chilling in the pool or hitting a couple water slides. The park does get busy on the weekends so if possible go on a weekday. I Also wanted to add this used to be Wyandot lake. I had been going there since I was a kid in the 90s. The new and improved Zoombezi Bay is far superior.
  • I had the best time of my life we went to the water park and zoo I liked the lions the best in the zoo and in the water park I liked the cyclone the best
  • Great rides, clean water, and a great staff. Fun for every age.
