This amusement park was demolished this year. It was getting a little old, was in desperate need of updates.

The Waterslide Park was an excellent attraction, but was getting older. The property was sold last summer and they have got it almost torn down. There are several indoor waterparks in Rapid City, one is open now and the other is being built. Both are...More

Thanks for the memories. Used to come here everyday as a kid/teenager. Sorry to see you go. Always had so much fun here. Loved the tube river slide. Could spend hours here.

The owners said severe weather and maintenance issues took a toll on the aging attraction. It's sad to see a local attraction close down. Thanks for the memories.

If your child is 10+ years of age... it can get pricy. Don't judge by how it looks on the highway... they have more slides than you think along with a large hot tub. My advice: Bring an umbrella or wear a hat... it is...More

Just driving by, you can tell this is no major waterpark with the latest and greatest rides. It is good for an afternoon of sliding, especially if you have kids. The park is dated, but still very functional. $15 for an adult pass is pretty...More
