A few months ago, my wife purchased tickets for Wild Water Kingdom from Groupon. This past weekend we cashed them in for a day of wild water fun.
This was the first time the boys had ever been to a water park and they didn’t know what to expected. The look on their faces when we walked into the place was priceless.
Hunter, 42 inches, was tall enough to do everything but the crazy carpet slides. Racer, 36 inches, on the other hand was limited to the wave pool and kiddy slides. This didn’t bother him at all.
The “extreme” slides had some serious drops, but they didn’t phase Hunter in the least. In fact, and you can see it in the video, he was so excited to go on them he couldn’t contain himself.
Thinking of going to Wild Water Kingdom? Here’s the good and the bad.
- It’s big, so even if the place is packed it’s not claustrophobic
- The “bowl” tube ride is awesome, check it out in the video
- If you are 42 inches or higher, like Hunter who is 5, you can go on pretty much all of the waterslides
- Parking was $25
- Not enough staff to keep all the kiddy slides open
- If you are under 42 inches, like Racer, you are limited to the number of watersides you can go on
