Water Country USA Discounts & Deals for Wild, Wet Fun

Want Water Country USA discount tickets, including how to save $30 on single-day tickets... 

Open the end of May through the first week in Sept., the Mid-Atlantic's largest water park is a wet and wild choice for a gnarly family vacation getaway.

Voted one of America's best water parks by the Travel Channel, it's the sister park of Busch Gardens Williamsburg, which is just down the road.

Some people like to plan a vacation combining both parks, some prefer just to get wet. Whatever your choice, you'll love the park's '50's & '60's "Kowabunga" surf theme, 35 "super-soakin'" water rides and slides, and 82 degree heated pools on cooler days.

The park is open the middle of May through the first week in September. I've listed the full summer hours and operating schedule below.


Latest new ride - "Colossal Curl" - A mega slide that promises to give the words "hang ten" a whole new meaning. Another relatively new ride is "Vanish Point," a 75-foot tower with two wave paths, including a 300 foot speed slide where you drop straight down. Look below for an official You Tube video of the upcoming slide.


Here's just a sample of the other rides at Water Country USA:

  • Rock 'n' Roll Island - features three body slides, a "lazy" river, and a slide for "Little Boppers," all set to rockin' music from the 50's and 60's
  • Big Daddy Falls - a family ride with a tunnel, water curtain, "cannon blasters," and two splash pools
  • Hubba-Hubba Highway - Fast-moving lazy river with interactive water features

  • Lemon Drop - Bright yellow slides that shoot you airborne before plunging you into the pool
  • Nitro Racer - a mad race to the finish on plastic mats against six other guests
  • Rampage - a tobaggon slide dropping you 75 feet at a 60 degree angle
  • Surfer's Bay - Virginia's largest wave-pool with four foot waves


Ready to get wet? There's more...

For the little kiddies, there's Cow-A-Bunga (heated water playland with water slides, fountains and waterfalls, H20-UFO (super slides and fountains), and Kritter Korral (a playground and mini slides for the littles tykes).
