  • Great staff at this kid friendly water park. The cabanas are the way to go. We did the high up hut and loved it! We had a place where the kids could run around or nap without being in others way. It w...  more »
  • Fourth time at RW, first time we rented a cabana. Always been a great day, however everyone agreed having a 'cabana' was awesome. Went with our 6 grandy's and had a super fun day. Clean, easy to park ...  more »
  • I only gave it 3 stars because we've spent many summers here with our years of season passes, but this was it for us! It's become too crowded! They give out way too many free passes and don't care abo...  more »

  • We were gifted season passes this year and have already been twice! Love it there! Very kid friendly with 2 kid areas plus they can go to the wave pool and the lazy river. Lots of great life guards stay very attentive. Love that they play Christian music as well! Will be a great stop for us many times this summer!
  • I've been to a number of waterparks around the country, and was pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. We went on a super hot Saturday in June. I was expected Six Flags-style crowds, and although the warm weather definitely drew people to the park (and some questionable clientele), still managed to have a fun time. The staff was very friendly. The park was spotless. The lockers priced similar to other parks (loved being able to get extra wristbands at no charge). The food, decently priced for this type of venue. It's a smaller park, and we probably rode everything at least once within 3 hours - still a fun way to spend a summer afternoon. My only complaints (if I had to) would be to decrease the time between the waves in the wave pool (we felt we waited forever, unlike other parks), add more waterfalls in the lazy river, and figure out a better way to manage the parking situation...even if that means directing people to park in the grass. It's a small lot that seemingly could use an expansion. I would go back...hopefully they continue to expand it. I feel this park is a solid 4 stars, with great potential, and what appears to be room for expansion!
  • great place to go for many reasons. very well structured. plenty of space. wave pool is huge and looks very fun. rides look amazing. staff is incredibly professional, caring, and conscientious. see their google maps 360 virtual tour.
  • Water park rides were great! Only thing I did not like is some of the workers have terrible customer service. I told the attendant at the top of the slide for the children's area to wait until i got to the bottom of the slide to catch my 4yr old and she let her go and she tumbled and fell under and she can't swim!! OTHER THAN THAT, it was a great clean park lots to do and wait times weren't ridiculous.
  • Good place for the price. It's a bit expensive but still provides a fun experience. Variety of water slides, a wave pool, kids area, and the always enjoyable lazy river. Some vertical drop slides would be nice but only to make the park more worth the price. Plus it's always nice to see cute girls in bikinis
