Tips for Families

Bring your lunch in a cooler (and a blanket or lawn chairs) and leave it in the car, and go out and eat in the parking lot at lunch time. Lines can be long for food and the quality is lousy (and price high!).

Don't bother with the big events. Wild Waves lets way more people in in the short period of time than the rides can handle. I would expect even if open for just six hours, to be able to go on at least half the rides.

Great amusement park for the price. The rides are targeted for younger children so if you go there expecting a Six Flags Magic Mountain type experience, you will be disappointed. The water park area gets really crowded in the afternoon so your best bet is t...

The website charges $29.99 a ticket but after you add in taxes and a $5 processing fee, it's almost $40. We just bought them at the door since it was about the same price. We paid $10 for parking and about $9 for a locker. Don't get me wrong, I did have a good time but just want to let everyone know that all the costs definitely add up and not sure if it was entirely worth it. I think children are free under a certain age but unfortunately, we don't have any kids yet so didn't get to reap the benefits. So if you don't want to spend a lot, make sure you do your research in advance and get the discount tickets. My boyfriend and I are around 30 years old and we spent most of our time on the green and speed slid...

Go for what it is and you'll be fine. I took two 5 year old girls to the park, with our discount card, the price was reasonable so if you don't have a discount, perhaps you'll feel differently. We spent 4 hours there, riding the kiddie rides, a snack, watching some live performers and a bit of time in the water, in the end, we left without any tears so I'd say SUCCESS. The rides: This seems like an ideal place if your child is about 8, 48" was the cut off for many rides, although many were 42" with a parent.  There were a few rides for the smaller kids, the most fun being a teacup type spinning ride and a gorgeous carousel.  Since I have known my daughter to want to ride the carousel 3+ in a row, the price w...

In California, there's a theme park within a 50 mile radius of any city; which is ridiculous. However, Wild Waves is all Washington's got and just going to base this on how wild their waves truly are. Wave Pool: First and foremost, a wave pool is classic in all water parks but this pool is unbelievable PACKED any minute of the day. It's no surprise why they close the pool off sometimes for over an hour but because of the largely condensed amount of people, young and old, I did not even attempt to dip in the pool..

We waited in line but needless to say, we were missing one important com...

This time of year during the dogdays of summer, Wild Waves can be a refreshing, fun family event. Especially if you shop around and get discount tickets. We got ours at Lacey Parks & Recreation for $24 (360.491.0857) quite a savings over gate prices or other places. tickets...

Staycation? If it weren't for my daughter I couldn't go here and not feel wrong.  I just don't fit the age range here. Mostly preteens to teens and then 40+ parents with kids.  And some of those parents shouldn't be wearing inappropriate attire. I will leave it at that. The lines for some of the water rides were ridiculous.  You spend more than 30 mins for a 2 min ride... Its even more frustrating that you would have to go wait in one line to get an intertube to get in another line to go down the ride... Of all the new water rides none were really worth the wait. Ripetide was fun for a sec. The first drop into the bowl you are going a good speed but that dies fast and you get flushed down. Konga slide was a ...

This place is a tiny, not memorable amusement park experience.  Half the park is a water park...kind of worthless in the Pacific Northwest even in summer...and the other half typical amusement park rides, sort of.  There are three roller coasters:  Timberhawk, Wild Thing, and Klondike Gold Rusher.  Timberhawk is a decent wooden coaster for its relatively small size.  Wild Thing is a no frills, loop and corkscrew steel coaster on a tiny footprint.  Gold Rusher is your typical wild mouse found anywhere else.  Most of the other rides are typical of a county or regional fair.  In fact, I'd probably recommend the Puyallup Fair (September) because it actually has more of a selection. Calling Wild Waves a theme par...
