Where are we going today?

Raging Waves, Chicagoland’s newest and largest waterpark, is located in suburban Yorkville, Illinois, on Highway 47.

The newest feature is actually a dry one: the CNH Outback Road Rally track is open for some pedal tractor madness for those over 48".

The main Water Park offers leisure swimming, 7 major water slides, wave pool and lazy river.

Koala Cove is the shallow interactive play area for toddlers while Kangaroo Falls offers heartier fare for older kids with jets, fountains and their own set of slides. Brock's Giant Sandbox is suitable for all.

Plus the Fifth Third Bank Family Stage offers regular performances and entertainments suited to the whole family, and the Cowabunga Zipline Adventure is available for those over 48".

    MAJOR ISSUE with food service and overall staffing levels. The general manager (Jeff Hansen) noted he was not properly staffed on August 20th when I took my family there for the day but was not managing the amount of people he had in the park. I understand that a large portion of his staff goes back to college at this time of the year, but then the business model needs to be adjusted for that time period. You can't charge and offer the same amenities when you are knowingly staffed different. There are many solutions to this problem, but the reason...Read More

    Had an amazing time at Raging Waves this past weekend. Weather was perfect so there was a large crowd. But even with the overpopulation, still managed to get on some slides, chill in the lazy river, and surf it up in the wave pool. No need to bring a cooler of food (like other water parks) as the restaurants inside are very reasonably priced. Where else can you get ice cream for $2! Get there early to secure coveted lounge chairs near the wave pool.

    This park is NOT worth the money. Super crowded, long lines for everything. Entry terribly unorganized, way too long of a wait. Plus the water was ICE cold! I have a pool so I know what 80 degrees feels like and this was not even close.

    I love going to this waterpark with my friends! We always have a fun experience, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is well-priced and tasty. All of the rides are fun and enjoyable, although the lines are long, having someone to talk to makes the minutes fly by! I especially enjoyed the Lazy River! 5/5 would recommend.

    It says Illinois biggest water park and it's true! There are tons of water slides that you can enjoy and the lazy river is always the best to just relax. The lines sometimes are long and the food prices are cheap. The rides closes 1 hour before the park actually closes.....the thing that sucks.

There are many solutions to this problem, but the reason I had an issue was that Mr. Hansen was ok with it being a problem. This is not good for the staff or the facilities patrons.
