Where are we going today?

When you are in a place like Redding, California, where the average daily temperature in summer is 100F, then you know that a waterpark is a great idea when you are looking for something to do with the family.

Welcome to Waterworks!

Waterworks is a great place to enjoy some water fun with the family. There are a ton of water activities for all - whether you like the gentle spills or the mammoth thrills!

If you're feeling brave, then you might want to start with the Avalanche! From there, just see where the water takes you! Perhaps you want to grab an inflatable tube and make your way around the Lazy Lagoon, taking in the sights and sounds of the park. Maybe you might spot what you can enjoy next!

If it's water slides that you like, then there are plenty to choose from! There are also pools where you can just splash, swim, or float until your heart's content.

If you have little water babies in the family, there is a kiddie area perfect for them, where they have shallow waters - just enough for them to enjoy their own kiddie size thrills and spills.

Celebrating a birthday? Waterworks would LOVE to have you, and celebrate with you and your friends! It's a great place to enjoy one of their birthday packages!

So if you are feeling the heat, grab those swimming costumes and hats, and make your way down to Waterworks. Redding has never felt so COOL!

    We visit this water park every summer and our kids/grandkids love it. It is not a 4 star hotel so if your from the upper crust you should probably stay home.
    The slides are fun and of course the lines get longer in the middle of the day. They have tables and chairs inside to set up a "base of operations" but on the weekends you need to get there early to get one. The food is what you'd expect from a water park, nothing gourmet but will get you by if your hungry. There are many fast food places close by, We spend the whole day there and usually head...Read More

    Think twice before going to this facility. The place is dirty and poorly run: We arrived at 12:30 on a Saturday. I overheard the clerks complaining about their manager. My bags were searched because,"there have been issues about people bringing in food and alcohol." I purchased a double tube because i wanted to ride with my child and there are not enough single tubes at the end of each ride so you will have to wait until someone gives one up, which takes a long time. When I went to get a tube there weren't any left so i was directed to get...Read More

There are many fast food places close by, We spend the whole day there and usually head to subway for lunch and then return. Things do cost money, imagine that, so if you want extras you'll have to pay a little more. We have visited many water parks on the west coast and we love this one.

Think twice before going to this facility. The place is dirty and poorly run: We arrived at 12:30 on a Saturday. I overheard the clerks complaining about their manager. My bags were searched because,"there have been issues about people bringing in food and alcohol." I purchased a double tube because i wanted to ride with my child and there are not enough single tubes at the end of each ride so you will have to wait until someone gives one up, which takes a long time. When I went to get a tube there weren't any left so i was directed to get a refund. I did. As people returned their tubes, I attempted to purchase another, I was told that,"We can't let you have one until there are ten tubes over there." We attempted to go on rides waiting up to 20 minutes just to find 2 single tubes, which are designated for each ride. The place was super crowded with long (up to 45 minutes) waits. At 4 pm I purchased a tube at the insistance of my11 year old son. This is when we finally were able to enjoy a few rides, albiet several 25-45 minute lines. While in line I was able to observe no less than 20 people with horrendous foot fungus and a huge array of interesting tattoos-some gang and prison related . We sat down for a few minutes to drink some water and put on lotion and WTF-someone stole our tube-while we were sitting 5 ft away. I reported it to the lifeguard who first told us that we would have to wait until they found it and then just gave us another one. We saw the tube and the tube thieves in line ahead of us, nothing was done. All the rides closed about 20 minutes before 6 pm which is when they are suppost to close. When I asked for my tube deposit back the manager refused to give it back because my son unwittingly removed the bracelet which they insisted he needed to keep attached in order to get our 3$ back. The food is an unhealthy array of grease, suger and high fructose corn syrup-There are several dirty picnic tables next to the parking lot to have a picnic. The bathrooms are filthy and lack privacy to change unless you use a bathroom stall. The bathrooms can only be described as gross. On this particular visit there was a weird man taking pictures all over the park of all the children with a professional camera, Who was this guy? No one was informed-permission was not sought??? Although water parks seem like a great idea, I'll never go back to this one again. A better choice in this area would be Turtle bay, Lake Shasta or your neighbor's or a hotel pool.

Ze začátku tam přijdete koupit k pokladně lístky, koupíte je a pak jdete za nějakou ženskou, která vám prohledá věci(tašku nebo něco v čem máte ručníky atd) jestli si s sebou nenesete jídlo nebo pití. Tohle je trochu na nic. Potom tam můžete jezdit na skluzavkách,tobogánech a plavat v bazénech(těch zam moc není jsou tam myslím dva). Toto místo jsem navštívil, protože je to ve městě, ve kterém jsem bydlel. Toto místo doporučuji jestli tady někdy pojedete kolem tak se určitě zastavte na tomto místě. :D:D:D
