The Valley of Waves is the central feature of the Lost City at Sun City. It is one of the most advanced water parks in the world, dominated by the Roaring Lagoon. When waves are not generated, a bobbing cycle is generated in a diamond pattern.  All Resort residents enter the park free of charge by presenting their resident cards. Day visitors pay an entrance fee to the park.

The slides are the best part of Valley of the Waves. Unfortunately the Temple of Courage was closed for maintenance😢 To many people in the "beach" area. Would recommend going when its not school holiday!!

You don't have a lot to do in this water park.The slides are limited and the waves are also not very good.Its generally crowded. They need to highly renovate it considering that they have so many visitors all round the year.

Great for family! Lots of slides and great fun for kids! They have at least 7 slides that you can enjoy. Long lazy tube ride is relaxing too.

Get there early to get a good 'base' for the day. Opens at 9am. Water is pretty cold. Maybe it's just my family who found the water cold, but when comparing with Dubai Atlantis and other water parks visited it made it difficult to enjoy a lazy river if you are doing all you can to keep out the water!...

Nice water park, with some good fun slides that are suitable for a range of ages, the large wave is great fun. Lots of places to sit with little seat backs around the beach area.
