Really enjoyed Water Country.The park is very clean and organized. The rides are well worth the travel time. This is my second time visiting the Park! All the employees are very respectful. I have definitely been telling all my friends they should go!

Tip: I would use water shoes instead of flip flops. Makes it easier for people with tender feet. Plus you can just get in line, instead of having to take your flip flops off.

I ordered tickets through Reserve Williamsburg a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised. The purchase was quick and the tickets printed easily. I could have checked in with my phone, but I felt better with a hard copy in my hand. The discount was definitely the prime motivator in purchasing online. No worries, no muss, no fuss. I will definitely use the service next time.

I thought this park would be really boring but it has been the highlight of our Williamsburg trip. Everyone at the park was extremely helpful! Since I am hearing impaired and had taken my hearing aids out the ladies in the dining part where they had burritos were very nice in helping us getting situated with our food. The park is perfect sized not too big so you can get to any of the areas very easily. We went on a Monday lines were not bad at all. One of my favorite things about this park was how clean it was! I was not expecting that with a water park to be honest. For 3 kids and myself I had brought towels for everyone a bag with all of the Sun screen hand sanitizer the normal things. Really I could have probably just gotten away with one towel because we were moving almost the whole time I barely sat down to enjoy the chairs! The rides were all very fun, and my youngest would is 5 and just over 42" tall was able to get on just about everything. My kids are already asking when we can go back!

Nice break from the heat. We bought a Bush Garden/Water Country season pass and unlimited parking pass for our week stay in Williamsburg. It was the best decision because we could go for a few hours in the afternoon just to cool down and not feel like we wasted a park day. We had 5 kids with us (ages 8-13) and there was something for each on of them to do from lazy river to big time water slides.

"Great fun even for little ones!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2018 NEW
With a 7 year old and a 2 year old i was worried there wouldn't be enough to occupy our littlest one. Boy was I wrong! She had a blast going from area to area that were specifically designed for toddlers. There were sprinklers, fountains, mini slides shaped like sea creatures, things to float on and even playgrounds within the shallow pools which were neat as well. My 7 year old Anna hid dad also had a great time on the bigger rides, even chickening out on some of the really steep ones. The food was good too, the waiting area was largely air conditioned so even though the lines were long, it wasn't complete torture. They had a chipotle-esque make you're own burrito option which was a nice change from the fried everything that you usually get at an amusement park. They had lockers at the front which were helpful, though didn't even really need your towel since you dried off quite a bit walking from ride to ride. All in all a good time. We left exhausted, though slightly sunburned.

Our family loves this water park because there is something for everyone. The staff is friendly and attentive and the park itself is clean and well-maintained. My only complaint, as with most amusement parks, is that the food and drinks are expensive. It's a good idea to bring a water bottle with you as there are several water fountains and the refreshment areas offer free ice if you ask. You cannot bring food into the park, but you can leave the park, get your hand-stamped, and "tailgate" in the parking lot, then return. Also, be prepared to pay $16 for parking.

We love going to WCUSA. The place is built really nice and easy to get around. The rides are great for kids and adults alike! The only thing that disappoints us sometimes is when they regularly close a ride on the days we're there. There's almost always one and it's usually one that younger (shorter) kids can ride which is always a disappointment given that they're already limited on what they can ride.
