Where are we going today?

Water park! no...Theme park!  no, wait...Water park!  We have just outlined your biggest decision of the day.  But the great news is, the answer is you can have both!

Wild Waves is over 70 acres of water park AND theme park - the only one in Washington!

Lets start with the water park.  Whether you hang out in arrrr me harties Pirates Cove, or the very fun and slippery slide alley, you will be guaranteed two things: you will have a great time, and you will get wet!

There are areas and attractions suitable for the entire family.  The Raging River Ride is thrilling tube ride where you and a friend can journey down the wild river, just watch out for the drops that will surprise you around certain corners!  Hooks Lagoon is an incredible 3-story treehouse where you can splash and slide on your ultimate adventure!  There are waterfalls, and squirting cannons, but watch out for the 200 gallons of water that might get dumped on your head every 10 minutes!

There is also a wave pool, warming tubs, a crazy thrilling Riptide slide, just to name a few. 

The theme park is just as thrilling with an incredible choice of rides - ranging from the loopy Wild Thing roller coaster, which will really get your adrenaline pumping, the Ring Of Fire which is an INVERTED roller coaster (we're nervous just thinking about it!) and the super fun Timberhawk of Prey.

Certain rides for the bigger kids have height restrictions so make sure you check before you queue. 

For the little ones, there are just as many options for them where they can take some time out from the big kids and have space and fun on their own. 

Don't forget to keep an eye out for any featured shows they have on!

I'm Hungry!

There are a number of fun and tasty snack options scattered around the park should you fancy a sweet treat. There are a number of cafes for more substantial foods such as The Wharf serving burgers, hot dogs and tenders, and Fiesta Cafe for those Mexican cravings. Unfortunately you can't bring outside food into the park. .

Healthy Eating!

Pizza Pier, located in Pirates Cove, serves tasty wraps and salads, in addition to pizza. .

Any Top Tips?

The park offers "rider swap" which ensures the parents can enjoy the ride too! One parent can wait with the chid at the exit to the ride whilst the other parents enjoys their turn, then they trade straight away so you don't have to queue twice!.

Need a little extra help?

While the park do their best to accommodate every guests, participation might be restricted on some attractions. It is best to speak to Guest Relations upon arrival who can assist with the best rides for you. Please note the park doesn't have wheelchairs available to rent. .

Baby Facilities

The park doesn't have strollers available to rent. .

Can I get one of those?

Souvenir Cart (located in Pirate Cove) is a great place to buy any gifts for friends, (or treats for the ride home!). They sell Wild Waves souvenirs, as well as shirts and jewelry..

    I worked there this summer as a lifeguard and it was the worst job I've ever had. The leads were always giving the lifeguards attitude and a hard time when ever we had questions, it was terrible. If your looking for a summer job defiantly don't apply there, the pay was 9.32 an hour which I think is crazy for watching out for peoples lives! We are well trained and know what we were doing, but the superiors were nasty towards us, I get it we're all hot it's summer but it shouldn't excuse how they treated us this summer. Save yourself... DO NOT WORK...Read More

     I have loved the wild waves since I was a child. We would drive up with a car full from Portland to the spend the whole day playing at the closest water park. I have many great memories. I am sad to say that things have changed and wild waves does not hold that high regard for me anymore. My husband and I had decided to take our daughter for her 8th bday this year. We had a group of 12 that caravaned up from Portland. We were having a great time until my husband broken his 2 front teeth being catapulted at the bottom of the Konga slides. It happened...Read More

    Best park in the Northwest. The park is beautiful with great scenery and a lot of trees. Very friendly staff with great customer service. The roller coasters, Pirate Ship and the Hang Glider rides are a lot of fun. My favorite is the Wild Thing roller coaster. I look forward coming here again.

    I was wearing a nice pair of Oakley sunglasses all day and when I went down one of the slides they came off. I was going to retrieve them right then but the lifeguard told me to stop and go to the office to get a Diver to get them. Because I followed their rules I'm out $150 due to listening to them and their diver not being able to find them. I just called and they aren't willing to compensate me for my loss, though there wouldn't be one if I was able to get them as soon as they came off. On top of that they only have a few water slides, their...Read More

    My husband and I took our 9 year old son and 8 year old daughter here yesterday. Most of the people who visited this park when we were there were were either morbidly obese wearing bikinis that were meant for a person with a size 3 body or were completely rude. First, when my son was in the kid-area of the water park, he got punched by another boy because he wanted to go in front of my son. Lifeguards in the kid-area did an "okay" job of watching the kids from what I could see, but of course my son being punched was not seen. The wave pool looked...Read More

And he was flat on his face with a fat lip and busted teeth. Wild waves has liability insurance for these situations and yet they don't want to be liable. My daughter's memorable birthday turned out to be a horrid memory and has cost us thousands of dollars. The dentist were unable to save the teeth and he needs implants. It has been a horrid experience and wild waves has turned out to not to be the stand up decent company I thought they were.

On top of that they only have a few water slides, their wave pool is WEAK, they don't have many roller coasters, they rip people off on locker rentals and just being able to park. Save your money and don't go it's not worth it and if you do go and something falls off of you and you can get it, you should grab it if you ever want to see it again.

My husband and I took our 9 year old son and 8 year old daughter here yesterday. Most of the people who visited this park when we were there were were either morbidly obese wearing bikinis that were meant for a person with a size 3 body or were completely rude. First, when my son was in the kid-area of the water park, he got punched by another boy because he wanted to go in front of my son. Lifeguards in the kid-area did an "okay" job of watching the kids from what I could see, but of course my son being punched was not seen. The wave pool looked like the episode of South Park where you see the people's heads bobbing up and down but you can't actually see the water. We stayed there all day but did not buy any of the food, it looked so unhealthy and cost WAY too much. The lockers were also very overpriced. The rides are extremely outdated and they could use more rides, especially for the price they normally charge people. In the Konga River (lazy river with more current) the lifeguards made both of my kids get off of the double tubes they were laying on in the middle of the river and switch to a single tube, again, in the middle of the river (I should mention in most parts of this, it was hard for me to stand in the current and I'm 120 pounds) so in order to follow the "rules" which I didn't see this one anywhere, they endangered my children by making them get off of their floats and onto different ones. Way to go, ladies! Then, this one is posted, but we were told not to hold our kids floats so that we could keep our kids with us. You people are idiots. Oh, and I had a tube thrown at my head by what looked like an 11 or 12 year old boy, but who did he hear from? ME! Not the lifeguards warning him that he would have to get out, oh no. They only target the families who try to do right. After that, we left. We stood for an hour in line to even get in the stupid Konga River and then...seriously? Will NEVER come back. I will spend the much greater amount of money to go to the Great Wolf Lodge (indoor water park). Or drive further and go to Silverwood in Idaho.
