I was a pretty lucky child growing up about 25 minutes from Geauga Lake Amusement Park as well as Sea World. So when both closed down it was almost as though we had lost a family member. We spend our summers rididng rides or watching Shamu so when I found out that they were opening up the old Geauga Lake as an outdoor water park I was pretty excited to be able to pass on the Geauga Lake tradition to my children. With that being said despite our closeness to the park we never found the time to visit. The kids always were too young or the summer went by too quickly so I was super excited when Cedar Faire contacted me to do a review of the Wildwater Kingdom.
Whenever you are doing a review of an outdoor recreation you are a slave to the weather and unfortunatley on the day we were hit with really poor weather. The morning was washed out with thunderstorms so we were unable to really visit the waterpark until the late afternoon. Once the weather cooperated we had such a great time! The kids spent a large amount of time in the Family Splash landing area and the Wave Pool! The Wave pool brought so many childhood memories back! The kids were able to really take off and run in the splash landing area while hubby and I were able to relax poolside! It's so nice to not have to be with them at all times!
My favorite of the waterpark was the Wave! Not just because it brought back so much of my childhood but because who doesn't love playing in waves?? My kids would have stayed for hours just floating on the waves! We have been to a lot of indoor/ outdoor waterparks with wave pools but this one by far is the best! I wish I would have taken a picture of this part of the park but because of the depth of the pool our cameras were tucked away in our bags.
Overall we had a great time! I was a little taken back by the daily ticket prices but the season passes are well worth the price. I would definitely recommend this park to those who have children of all ages in fact it's the perfect place for the family that have kids spaced out in ages. No one will be bored at any age. Oh and I forgot to mention that people are not the only fan of Wildwater Kingdom... ducks find it quite appealing as you can see from the pictures!
