Tips for Families

Get there early to get a prime parking spot. Bring a stroller/wagon so the kids can ride on it while walking around the park. As expected, water park food was expensive.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. I know it sounds silly, but I had been pestering him to go. We got there before they opened and headed straight for the wave pool once they let us in. Got some lounge chairs and then went on the rides before the lines got too busy. The rides were a lot of fun, but once it hits mid day you can count on waiting 15+ min in a line. We stayed for about 5 hours, and by that point the park was packed. So packed that it was no longer fun. So my suggestion would be to go early and leave after 4-5 hours, unless you don't mind crowds. Kids will love it, adults will need a high tolerance level. The food wasn't bad, just a bit pricey, but what amusement parks food isn't pri...

My 2 and a half year old daugther loved it.  I liked it also becasue I love water and water rides.  During the week it's good but on the weekends it is too crowded for my taste.  The food is horrible and you have to buy their overpriced drinks.  Hair extensions everywhere...

TRY VANISH POINT! thats one of the best rides here, apart from the Hubba Hubba highway (i think that's what its called, its a lazy river) Very opposite i know but those are the most enjoy able. Vanish point is new this year so the lines for the flagship "drop slide" was LONG pretty much all day, i suggest getting there early and do that first or wait till near the end of the day. The sun beats down on you while waiting in line, kinda sucks. The lazy river was GREAT, the 2 year old of the group loved it, its best to use a life jacket, they are hard to come buy at the front of the park, but it seemed like most of the people who used them took them off some where there or in the Lagoon entrance. So don't sweat ...

Tip #1 Go before they open - you'll get a close spot and you can get in right when they open. Tip #2 Get a locker immediately when you get in if you will need one Tip #3 Grab a lounge chair as these go fast - you'll be happy you did.  You'll have a place to rest when you're exhausted from running around, a place to dry off, a meeting place for the family/friends My family and I always hit up the family raft rides first and get our fill. Then hit up the individual or two people rides and then end with the lazy river and wave pool.  Both are awesome. They keep the entire park, especially the pools, extremely clean.  It is actually amazing how good of a job they do.  There are trees EVERYWHERE and never a leaf ...

If you had asked me when I was 15 to give Water Country a rating, it would have been five stars all the way. Even if I did get the worst sun burn of my entire life there (I think I still have a ghost itch from the after effects). Now that I'm older and grouchier and more annoyed by crowds and long lines and a lot of people in swimsuits that really shouldn't be, it's a four. I went there with my daughter last season and it felt like we spent so much time waiting and walking and trudging up stairs and eating bad food. But hey, it's just plain stupid-grin fun swishing down the Malibu  Pipeline in a double donut inner tube and splashing into a swirling blue pool at the end. I think it would be one of the best th...

I have been to several waterparks in California as a teen, and Water Country USA has pretty tame rides compared to the parks I remember.  My twelve year old step daughter loved all the rides and was able to do them with no problem (and she doesn't do rollercoasters) and almost all rides are for anybody over 8.  They were fun, but mostly short rides.     I have to say both the kids (10 and 12) loved, loved, loved the Hubba Hubba  Highway.  They did stay on that most of the day with short breaks when we ran over to the wave pool and did a few waterslides at a time.   We did decide to get a private cabana for about $200, which was worth it as it was right next to the Hubba Hubba Highway and my husband doesn't l...
