"Water Country USA - Great Experience"
August, 2016
Great time at Water Country. Family friendly with something for all ages - separate areas for families with small children, giant rides/slides and wave pool for the older kids and adults, comfortable distances between slides, and a great lazy river to relax in and float around. My kids would rather go there than to other amusement parks.

Tip: Get there early and find some chairs in the shade to park your belongings -towels, bags, etc.

"Fantastic Family Fun"
August, 2016
Water Country was great. The entire family from 6 years to 66 years old enjoyed the park. It was clean, safe, and well maintained. I loved the multi use pass, so we could enjoy a little bit each day. I would definitely take the entire family back!

"Easy and effective. Saved lots of money."
August, 2016
I wondered at first if the discounts were too good to be true, but after looking up reviews on the internet I decided the company is authentic. We saved a lot of money on tickets for our family of 5. The money we saved on tickets went toward the pricey parking lot and lockers at the park, along with some of the lunch. I would buy tickets through them again. Why pass on saving money?

"One of the best waterparks in the East Coast."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 16, 2018
We visited Water Country last year when they had just opened for the summer and loved it! It is a great place to spend a fun day with the family. There are lots of rides for all age groups, some thrilling one too. Nitro Racer and Colossal Curl (at the entrance) were a lot of fun. I went on Vanishing Point, or as some kid described to me "the wedgie ride", and boy, was she right! It was an insane experience when the platform beneath you slides and you slip into a tube on your journey downward. They have some nice relaxing rides too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were there on a very rainy day, and the park was still open so we had barely any people queueing up. The lockers are good and clean. There is good food at the park too, and a fair number of vegetarian options. There is obviously tons f parking. All in all, a great place. Would surely go there again.

"Fun family day."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 13, 2018
Water Country USA is always a Fun Family day for all. The wave pool is were we spend most of our time and it is well worth it. If you are in the area stop by groupon/living social to see if there are discount tickets that can be purchased. The food is basic. Get there early so that you will not be standing in line for a long period of time.

"Pass holders are NOT treated fairly"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 23, 2018
Pass holders used to be treated like family according to a quote in many BG emails to passholders. NO LONGER TRUE! Most of our benefits have been summarily taken away. BG will tell you that you can keep your benefits, but it is a lie. Passholders May no longer bring a guest to the park with a free pass. Passholders May no longer attend sneak peek or opening day events. Pass holders may no longer buy discounted season passes to Christmastown, according to the customer service rep that I spoke to on the phone. BG doesn’t care about passholders. They want everyone to be a “member” now. At a tremendously higher price than was previously being paid for being a passholder.

My mnl always gets our boys the fun passes for their birthdays. I get the season pass because the price of parking is ridiculous, esp for residents. Food is overpriced, esp for families. Eat before you come or bring a picnic in a cooler & go to the designated picnic areas. Enjoy
