Water Country USA
Grab your suit and jump in to the coolest kind of summertime fun it's Water Country USA , Virginia's largest water park, just three miles from Busch Gardens .
Water Country USA is a flashback to the surfin' safari days of the '50s and '60s with splish-splashin' slides, a way-out wave pool, and hours of fun in the summer sun.
More than 30 water rides and attractions, all sorts of live entertainment and hoppin' restaurants, make a trip to Water Country USA a day that's ready to rock your socks off.
I visited recently for the first time in 20 years and had a great time though I do wish they had better signage for certain rides, e.g. knowing ahead of time that you might need to remove and carry (in my case prescription) goggles on a ride would have kept me from waiting in line for it, because a ride where I can't see isn't that much fun (as I determined after going down it). There was absolutely zero warning information ahead of time and am not even sure if it's actually a requirement or if it was just something the attendant was saying. In general, the park was fun, but there are a few places where directional signage could also have been improved since there were blind corners and no signs pointing to major attractions or zones.
This is a wonderful vacation place! Wonderful activity's and attractions! My family absolutely loved it and promised we will come again! The only problem was the food. I was way to expensive and as other say, "Bring your own food." I hoped this review help others. I had a great time with my blessed family and I hope you guys have fun too! God bless🙏
The children, ages 15, 6, and 1, had so much fun. As did I. The employees were so friendly and helpful. If you can't afford the season pass go head and grab the month to month season pass. Heads up you will not be able to cancel after 1 go though, NO CHEATING THE SYSTEM PEOPLE, they will charge you full price at once. But hey for just 16 a month per person you can add Busch Gardens also. Try it out next summer
Our new favorite water park. The slides were all exceptional. I don't really get the point of the completely dark slides, but hey - they've got something for everyone. Plenty of family friendly rides, individual rides.Their system for ensuring maximum throughput works great. Lots of climbing stairs/walkways - gets a bit tough when carrying for multiple kids.
We had a great time, but if you're hungry, don't expect good food. In fact, don't even expect mediocre food. The place we decided on had ants crawling all over the place, flies were landing on the vegetables, and the staff didn't even bother to shoo them away. In fact, they stood there, staring at it, like mindless drones. No customer service in the way of apologies for the bugs, no NOTHING. We were so hungry, we made an attempt to eat the chicken tenders and very cold fries, but the chicken was just gross. It made McDonald's chicken nuggets look/taste gourmet. Did I mention the fries were cold? If the food being so bad wasn't enough, I had to pay $36.99 for 2 chicken nugget platters with drinks and a chicken tender kids meal! We threw away 95% of that garbage. It wasn't fit for human consumption and to be made to pay for it, was a slap in the face. The morale of this review, pack your lunch, snacks, drinks, etc., when you come to Water Country. The rides are great and so much fun, but the food gets about a trillion thumbs down. I hope next season brings much needed improvement in their food. If not, at least charge the consumer a fair price for what they are receiving.
