Water World, one of America's largest family water parks, is located just 15 minutes north of downtown Denver, Colorado, on 64 beautifully landscaped acres. Since we opened in 1979 with the first two water slides in the state of Colorado, we now boast over 46 water adventures, and have been rated as one of America's top ten water parks by the Travel Channel.
We feature the largest variety of attractions (50) in America, from Wally World for the tots, to Voyage to the Center of the Earth, the ultimate family water adventure. Water World has more family tube rides than any other park in America. Thrill rides are in abundance also, like the Red Line speed slide. Plenty of picnic areas are available, from covered pavilions to beautifully landscaped grass areas. We feature 3 separate Children's Play Adventures, including the all new Big Top Family Fun Zone. Two new attractions debuted in 2012 including Colorado's only magnetic water coaster (The Mile High Flyer)! Our interactive slide adventure, Warp Speed opened in 2015 and in 2016 Cowabunga Beach (our newest boarding experience) and Turtle Bay (our newest wave pool just for the little ones) opened!
Picnics are welcome at Water World and the parking is free. Please see our Park Guidelines for what items are allowable to bring in to the park, our raincheck guidelines and various restrictions that we require for your safe enjoyment of the park.
Water World offers a wide variety of food and beverage choices at a very reasonable cost. We feature a large variety of food,, from the classic burger to mouth watering pizza. And you can top off that delicious meal with some of the best dessert items in the west, including our delicious funnel cakes! We also offer a fully stocked gift shop for all those items you must have, from very affordable swim wear, to souvenir items!
Our operating season is generally from the last weekend in May through Labor Day, with some school days excepted during the early and late parts of the summer season. Please see our hours for exact operating schedule.
