  • I went with my daughter and family to Watiki and found myself disappointed. The whole water park was quite chilly as was the water except for the shallow area at the beginning of the river. The hot tu...  more »
  • We make the 4 hour trip several times a year for a weekend stay. My kids love Watiki. Unfortunately this time the slides plus lazy river were broken. We were told when paying they were just finishing ...  more »
  • This is a fun water park for the kids. There are water activities for all ages. The only issue was that the small slide that you use without a tube, it will scratch and rip your back up. There is a ga...  more »

  • It's a fun place. I had a great time with my family and friends. However, few things... After paying for the tickets, u have to pay separately for the lockers. It should have been provided with the ticket price. Also, probably the wrong exit sign posts led us to the other hotel entrance and we had to walk 10 minutes to reach the parking lot of the watiki with our heavy wet clothes. That was unexpected. Otherwise, I liked the place and the people.
  • It was amazing!!! I really liked all the life gaurds staying on task. And when i fell off my raft in the toilet bowl slide they immediatly got me out.
  • The family enjoyed the park NYE but it was very crowded. The next day with things back to "normal" (we guess) the park was a lot better.
  • This place is awesome. They have three great slides that are very fun. They also have three smaller slides for younger children. My 10 year old son loved it. They also have a pool with three basketball hoops and plenty of balls to play with and much more.
  • Great price! Very kid friendly! Not overly strict witch makes it nice for older kids! And the water is warm!

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90. If you want a scenic escape, look for a bed and breakfast, campsite, or cabin in the surrounding Black Hills National Forest.
