Water World is a fantastic water park. Still free parking, and allows entry with picnic items. The rides are great and evolving each year. Gets overcrowded at times, but normal for Denver attractions...

Visited Water World with family in July. Had a lot of fun. Would go there again. Price was ok, considering the wide selection of activities.

We stayed at the La Quinta in Westminster, not too far from there. No bed bugs! Less expensive than most places - a little dated (well, a lot dated) but clean.
