Rapids Water Park, West Palm Beach

Get relief from the Florida heat in the wave pool and on the water slides of Rapids Water Park. Rides and slides here range from leisurely to thrilling. For an adrenaline rush, head to the dual seven-story speed slides or the six-lane racer slide. For something more laid back, take to the lazy river ride, which also doubles as a transportation artery for the park. Career down dark slides, ride in rafts, or simply lounge around in one of the numerous pools. Buy your tickets online to skip past the line at the entrance.

  • I have grown up exploring all the water parks in Florida. I went to the (now closed) Wet N' Wild, Atlantis, etc. I have seen how Rapids has grown and expanded and cannot say enough about it. This summ...  more »
  • Get there early, take your lunch and reserve a table up front (by putting your stuff on it). Make sure your food is secure though - birds got into my brand new bags of chips. Pay the $10 to get a lock...  more »

  • We make it our business to come here every time we come to Florida. This is a great water park with many different attractions from mild to wild! My son started out in the kiddie area has graduated to the daredevil rides. Plenty of seating in the sun or in shaded areas. The food is typical water park fare but is pretty tasty. The restrooms constantly have personnel in there maintaining them. Going earlier in the day and a weekday helps shorten your wait times for the more popular rides. There are cabanas available also.
  • EVERYTHING you need to know.... We got the sunset pass for Saturday evening for 2 people plus small locker....$65 total. From 4-7pm, we did a total of 8 rides with no bathroom or eating breaks. Typical wait time for the popular slides is 20 minutes. Small lockers fit a 22 inch bag, no more than that; big lockers, not sure. Bring bottled water with you; food and drinks are gonna cost you $$. Try to wear flip flops in the bathrooms, they're disgusting. $10 parking is a 5 minute walk, $20 is a 2 minute walk. Staff is nice for the most part.
  • If I based my ratings just off the rides, it would DEFINITELY be a 5. I am a little afraid of heights, but there was only 1 ride I could not go on. BUT, I am being nice with a 3 star. I wanted to give it a 2 maybe even a 1, because of the price. Don't go there expecting reasonable prices. AT ALL. If you have a lot of stuff with you, too bad, you have to pay $15 for a locker. Then, for lunch (for 4 people), we ordered 3 tenders meal and 1 burger meal and the price was exactly $50.99. And even though they gave you a good amount of food, it was just like Wendys or Burger King. ON TOP OF THAT, we did not even get desserts, because they were $6.29 each!!! They literally charged us $3.50 for the water bottle. FOR A STINKING WATER BOTTLE! I can't even remember the ticket prices, so we probably (for 4 people) spent somewhere between $180-$240 for a 5 hour day at a water park. :/ In addition, most of the workers weren't very nice anyway. Especially the lifeguards and the food people. I think almost all of them were from ages 18-25. Go there at your own risk!!!
  • Kids love the park and if you buy the annual pass its well worth the value. Bathrooms are not the cleanest. Food lines can get long on busy days. You are allowed to bring food into the park picnic area if you want to bring your own food.
  • We had waited in line for 45 minutes to buy our ticket at the front, to find out that the park was closed because of lightening that was within a 5-8 mile radius. Yet, we were not notified of this until we had asked the manager why the line wasn't moving. They had not notified anyone until we had asked. It was a complete waste of time. When we were walking towards the parking lot, they were still letting people in even though the park was not in service. Bad service and unethical. Reply management: The manager did not make any announcements UNTIL we approached her and complained. It was then that she began to make the announcements. True customer service would have informed the customers BEFORE complaint was made.
