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!

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!
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.
