Breakers Water Park
After a hot day of sightseeing, cool off at Breakers Water Park at the outskirts of Tucson off Interstate 10. The special attraction here is the wave pool, which is as close to the ocean as it can get in Tucson. Your children will love the giant water slides while you relax at the restaurant or in shaded areas the snack bar. The park is also available for group events. Special rates available for birthday parties and twilight (3pm-6pm) admission.
I was taken to this water park by friends I was visiting in Arizona, earlier this year. What a hoot, this place is a great way to spend a day.
We arrived early, which was great because they're were no queues. It can get busy, but it's a lot of fun.
Very family friendly.
I went here as a kid a lot and had forgotten how much fun I had. I just went with my friends and we had the time of our life. The food was good and the wave pool was so cool! We r going again next week. I love summers and this is the only place to cool off in Tucson.
This isn't the biggest or fanciest water park, however the seven adult slides were a lot of fun. The wave pool is huge and it has a nice little splash pool for the little ones. It's not super crowded so you can go on the slides a bunch (and we went over Memorial day). That made it lots of fun. We didn't pay that much cause we got coupons and our kids were free. We will go again this summer. I wouldn't make it a vacation destination but it is fun. It's a little Oasis in the middle of the desert. Definitely look for a good coupon or go for the season pass, definitely worth it if you go more than once.
My family had such a good time going several times last year. We cannot wait for Breakers Water Park to open this year! We got the season pass last year and even though we could only make it 3 times it was still the cheapest way to go. We heard they have a new slide so my kids are begging me to take them on opening day.
I took my little cousins to Breakers for a day of swimming and fun. I had never been but heard that it was a great place to take the family!! My favorite place to hang out was the wave pool! My cousins (ages 5 and 13) had a blast riding down all of the slides. It was a busy day I think they had a corporate party or something going on but what a fun place to host it!! We had lunch and the food was really good and for a fair price. My 5 year old cousin definitely wants to have his birthday there later this month. We will definitely be going back!
Breakers is a great place to take your kids for the day to cool off from the heat! I have a 4 year old and this park was the perfect size for her. The prices were great at the snack stand and the staff was very friendly. The waterpark was clean and a great size for small kids. I would reccommend to any family! :) Awesome!
Worst water park I have EVER been to. Promotional material makes no mention that you have to drive in on a long dirt road to get in and park in a dusty parking lot. They did a proficient job in doing a photoshop chop job to make the ticket look attractive. Paid $67.00 with a 2 adult discount to get in this dump. My kids looked at me and they said, "dad...you have got to be kidding me". Had no choice to make the best of it due to paying for it already. So we walked through the untrimmed grass, the mudholes and general poor conditions of the rides/slides. This must have been quite a set-up back in 1975, but looks like a 2-bit, unkempt operation now. One of their taller rides had the person dropping down a metal slide into a concrete, yes concrete, container slide. I could really go on for a lot more, but my kids 9, 10 and 14 along with my niece and nephews said that they NEVER want the idea to come up again to go there. Do not believe what their promotional discount ticket looks like that you would pick-up at the Tucson/Oro Valley area Fry's and Circle Ks. I would have rather gone to see a movie and swim in a community pool. They rely on visitors to "just bear it" like myself and splurge on the once-in-a-lifetime, never-again trip there. Save your money and swim in your bathtub.
Overpriced..period. Food very poor and...yup, overpriced. "attractions"...hardly. leaky slides, constant shut downs and just not good. If you are not there when the park opens, you will not have shade unless it is under trees in dirt areas. No chairs to be found so sit in the dirt on your towel. (we had 1 of the five "umbrellas" and chairs, but by 10:15, you don't have one your not getting one) customer service is non existent, the place is in major disrepair and the "road" to get in is four wheel drivable...they say no coolers, but man oh man there were a bunch around. Parents there are no "adult beverages" avaliable..only on Sat and Sun from 12-5. Then only 4 kinds of beer in plastic cups, served warm. Of course the kids got hungry...$23 for the 2 of them to eat...with a 50 minute wait in line. Overall, it was a $140.00 day for a family of four....bring cash, patience and be prepared to leave unimpressed. For the money, go to a local resort for the day and at least have fun. Overpriced, poorly run, dirty and dull. And that is being kind...Avoid it...just say no, let it close...
