Summer Isn't Summer Without A Visit To A Water Park.

Summer isn't Summer without a visit to a water park. 

Enter to Win a Family 4 Pack to Water World!

Well I haven’t been to Water World since I was a kid! My memory was of flying down the “wiggly slide” as I called it, arms in the air, screaming for my life! I was having a blast. Man, has it changed. 

New slides new layout, better food the whole nine yards as they say. I also remember that you had to wait in line for a bit. Well, with the population it’s a bit busier, and if you are like my kiddo its kind of rough to wait your turn.  I have to say the payoff for waiting was totally worth it for her! She had a blast. She was doing the typical “How much longer” but when she got to the top of Toratoga run she was sold. Our favorites were Voyage to the Center of the Earth, Zoomerang, Tiger Tail, Thunder River, Thunder Bay Wave Pool, and The Storm. We spent all day 10 am to 6pm. We went during the week and I would highly suggest it if you can possibly swing it. 

The park has something for everyone. Rides, Food, and places just to rest. It’s an exciting way to spend a hot summer day. 

Here’s the facts:

Tips for a great time: 

Arrive Early: You get better parking, fewer people in line and you have more time to hit all the rides you want to . 

Bring plenty of food and drink: You are allowed to bring a cooler of food and beverage in the park. If you bring food and drink you can splurge on a treat (or save your money). 

Buy your tickets online: This saves time in line AND it can save money too as the tickets online are usually cheaper. 

Take advantage of promotions: 

Right now through August 2nd there is a promotion for BOGO tickets Monday through Thursday between 1:45pm and 6 pm. 

King Soopers has individual tickets for $5 off or a Family 4 pack that includes lunch before you go. 

Subway offers a coupon for $8 off of regular tickets 

Mountain Dew cans have a specially marked can offering $8 off too.

If you want to ride the popular rides to it first! 

The lines form early and get longer not shorter throughout the day. 

Rides for families and large groups will have longer lines and seem to take longer. Rides like Mile High lyer, Voyage to the Center of the Earth, The Storm, and Caribbean Family Adventure are the most crowded. 

Take advantage of the Single rider line: 

Not all of the rides offer this but when they have a line for “single rider” these are significantly shorter than the regular line. 

Plan out your day: Create a strategy for the day. 

What do you want to do first? Plan what time of day to go and what part of the park you want to start at. This makes it an easy start to the visit so that everyone isn’t pulled in different directions and you have a game plan in place.

What rides do you want to ride?  Determine where the rides are so that you are not running back and forth around the park all day and you make the most of your time there. 

When do you want to eat? Plan when you want lunch and consider having it at a different time from the usual busy time (11:30 – 1:30 apx). You will enjoy shorter lines at the rides and with the vendors.

Extra tip! Seriously consider the Tube Valet. It’s TOTALLY worth it. 

It costs a bit more than we wanted to pay BUT, the perks are that you get VIP access to several of the rides and you don’t have to carry the tubes around the whole  park. Especially worth it if  you are carrying the family/group tubes for rides like the Voyage to the Center of the Earth or The Storm.
