  • My girlfriend and I go here as much as we can. We love it. And it's a great time. Only compliant is that the water burns your eyes like crazy. And unfortunately if you have children they are probably ...  more »
  • Zoombezie Bay is one of the most fun, nicest places in the Columbus area. A must see and play for all age groups.  more »
  • Our family loves this water park! They have attractions for all ages! We also love the small rides outside at Jungle Jacks Landing and petting the sting ray at Stingray Bay!  more »
  • Very busy, but fun. My kids loved the wave pool. Food is expensive, better to pack! Life guards are not very alert due to the high population.
  • Great kids area we went with our 5 boys and stayed in the kids area for hours. Great locker system you pay for your locker at a kiosk/ATM style system and they give you your locker number and you provide your 4 digit pin of your choice and then at your locker there is a key Pad that is now programed to open to your unique pin. No key to worry about simple, convenient and secure!!!
  • My son really enjoyed it! Food prices are reasonable, the water was wet. The sun was real hot, and I got a sunburn.. Maybe enclose the entire park in a nice, sun-proof dome?
  • I used to really like this place, in fact had bought season passes for the whole family most years. These days, feel like I am nickeled and dimes and shook down. To take a family of two adults and two little kids, it is over $120 just to get in, and plus $10 now to park. Then add to the fact that unless wait in line for like an hour(no joke) for a water slide, you need to buy a zoom pass. But not just any zoom pass, a premium, even more uncharged zoom pass. I decided not to buy it for us all, that would have added another $95 to the cost(at @23/person) . So I took my soon on the sound surfer and saw one guy literally ride three times in the time it took for us to just get up to the top platform. Have to re-evalute if I really want to spend $250 for a day at the local waterpark.
  • Been around here all my life and seen many changes throughout the years. Some for the good, some not. $10 to park and $10-$20 for a locker is a rip off! That alone makes me never want to return. The park in general is alright, but they seem to nickel n dime for everything possible. Not sure if we want to afford it any longer... :(
