    If your child goes to the water park with a pass from their school, expect them to get harassed by the male manager and belittle your child if they accidentally bring their siblings pass by mistake. T...  more »

    We live a couple hours south of Raging Waves, so we make a trip every summer to spend the day there with our three kids. We have visited every summer for the past seven or eight years. We kept coming ...  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!

    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
