New England's largest water park. Try the Pirates Cove Kids Adventure areas with a huge pirate ship, volcano waterslides, and more. Offering everything from the high energy thrills of the Geronimo, Polaroid Shoot, and the Screamer to the relaxation of the Adventure River and the whirlpool. Play in the waves of the biggest wave pool in New England, or tube down the Racing Rapids and the Plunge. The smaller kids will love sliding down Big Ollie's arms at Octopus Lagoon or the fountains, slides, and waterfalls at Kiddie Kove. With so much to do, take time out to eat at one of the four snack bars, shop in the gift shop, or rest in the shaded picnic groves. Open seasonally.
Over the years, my family has come to water country to get away from it all. Last time wasn't quite as fun as usual however, lots of blood and loss of lives. There was an accident at the water park. When you lose your whole family to a waterpark trauma,it it's amazing how close you become to the staff. Honestly, despite the loss of lives and the frightening memories, we WILL go back to Water Country year after year. TA great time was had by all. They are the BEST!
i was there 7/13/08. overall it smells really bed, discusting toilets and overpriced food. but the worst thing is staf and lifeguards. my son got hurt by using one of the ride, he started bleading. i asked lifeguard for help and he send me to some "lifeguard booth" but thye didn't have first aid kit!!!! i start to argue with some staf member how they can not have first air kit and i got removed from a park!!!!! i will never go bac there again. moreover i filled a complaine to NH board of health
If you plan on visiting Water Country in Portsmouth, NH get ready to deal with Extremely Loooong Lines, Rude Patrons, Filthy Bathrooms, Overpriced Food, lots of Non-English speaking people and a management staff that is not organized whatsoever. I would not recommend this Park to anyone. Drove over 2 hours to get there. Ticket holders had to stand in the long line, while all the people who had no tickets, went to the front of the line to purchase the tickets and get right in to the park. This was the worst experience and I would never go back. Don't waste your time or money.
I loved it and I would live there. The rides are genius. It is worth your money any day. It isn't extrememly pricey and it is worth every minute and penny. Although the dragons den wasn't very exciting. my cousin and i had much more fun on the double geronimo.Alll I have to say is COME TO WATER COUNRTY WATER COUNTRY HAVE SOME FUN the slogan doesnt lie.
My family & I have been coming to Water Country every year since 1995.. We just love it.. It is the cleanest Water Park ever.. & we always have the most fun. It is just always so enjoyable..
Thank you Water Country
My mother ,who is now 81yrs old, comes every year with us & sits on a chair under the trees & loves it.
Water Country is full of fun and excitement for the whole family! I have been going with my family for many years now and I have never had a problem with anything there. The rides are exciting, and there is a section for little kids to play too! Definitely worth planning a trip with family and friends.
I have 5 kids , teenagers, grade school children, and very young children! And there was things for everybody there, including me and my husband!! I LOVED WATER COUNTRY AND I AM DEFFINATELY GOING BACK!
HOR-RI-BLE! Terrible parking,water filled with leaves,bandaids and dead bugs,45 min. waits for a short ride,a dirty smell and dont get me started with the restrooms.The staff had no sense of happiness and most importantly people had no manners what so ever.I would never think of going to that gross water park again! Unhappy 10 year old.
I started going to water country two years ago. As far as overall atmosphere, the park needs improvement. There are band-aids and gum on some of the paths, bathrooms have toilet paper/paper towels strewn about, and employees are not real helpful. I think the lifeguards are arrogant and take their job a little too seriously--constant whistle blowing for really no reason. It is also ridiculous how the lifeguards yell at you if you have goggles on, especially for those who need them. Adolescents can be rude here, but they can be rude anywhere, so that should not deter you from going to Water Country. I can see how it might not be ideal for younger children, but there are plenty of rides for them too!--lazy river, wave pool, pirate lagoon, big ollie, tahiti treehouse, triple giant slides, as well as the family rides (all on one tube) which aren't too fast. Around noontime is when it gets really busy, with some lines as long as an hour wait. However, by 3-4:00 everyone leaves! We stayed around until about 6:00 and it was awesome. No rude kids, barely anyone there, we went down a slide, ran back up to the top, and went on it again! Also, only a 5 minute wait for Dragon's Den. So definitely the thing to do would be to go on the popular rides right when it opens (before the big crowd) or after about 3:30. For people aged about 13 and up, the rides are awesome. Something for everyone with family rides, pitch black tunnels, big drops, tube rides, body rides, boggan rides, whirlpools, wave pool, etc. It did get tough walking on the concrete, so bring those water shoes if you have them, or be prepared to get blistered. Overall though, a fun, refreshing time on a hot day. Also, get the season pass if you live close enough--after two visits it pays for itself and then all the rest of the times you go for the summer are free.
We loved the ocean pool and all the rides it was a little pricy if it had more then i would not mind paying what we did.
Although it was a bit trashy, bathrooms need more attention thru day and clean up.
All the little pools were ideal for my youngest daughter who just learned how to swim, I felt safe due to all the life gaurds but we were harrassed for my daughters eye condition; She needs to wear protective eye wear in water and never took them off or used them inapropriatly but each pool, life gaurd wanted her to take them off and would blow there wistle at us and make us come out of water then i would have to explain to them why, then they would allow us back in water. So we ended up staying in ocean pool
because the life gaurds new the situation.. until the next shift came on then we had to go thru the same thing over again !
Overall Food was good and gifts some what affordable to take home also had lots of little dollar items kids could purchase that other parks do not offer. I would like to go back this year but would love a responce on water protective eye wear for my daughter so it wont be a nusence.
