We've been to some really great water parks but we love coming home to Water Country. We know it's not the best and doesn't have all the latest gadgets and we know that Orlando's Water Parks have more variety and clever theming but this park...More

You can combine tickets for Wter country and Bush Gardens. There is a nice Target and other stores near the entrance to water country, to pick up that last minute sun screen or sunglasses.

Large amount of water rides to choose from - great for little children or adults - the wave pool is great fun and the lazy river is a great place to kick back and flow with the water!

We are season passholders so we drive the 1:45 minutes to relax and veg in the wave pool or the hubba hubba highway (Lazy River). Best times to come? Monday or Tuesday if possible. There are hardly any lines, which makes it perfect.

Yes, you can be dropped off. Just tell the parking attendant and they won't charge you for parking. Have fun!
