Cole Spray Park: what do users think?


Alex DiCaprio: This is a review of the playground complex. The water Park area is larger than most and definitely allows for some great activities with kids but unfortunately the significant usage of concrete isnt the best... I feel like other locations use textured granite to reduce scrapes. Otherwise the campus is great for relaxing with multiple options for kids of all ages

Danielle Barnes-Smith: Top Quality Leaves It was a very hot summer day. We had our nephew, who was under two years old, visiting us. The pool at our building was too crowded, so we looked for an outdoor park with a splash zone. Minutes after arriving, the kiddo was completely ignoring the elaborating constructed water obstacles and splash features. But fear not for there was GOOD NEWS. In the middle of the splash zone, there was a wet leaf. And you may think, “So what?” but trust me, dear reader, when I tell you that this was a top shelf leaf. This leaf had it all: green, ridges, stem, leafiness, did I mention green? The time spent playing with the leaf far exceeded the time playing in just the carefully-engineered-and-designed-for-kids water play structures. So if your kid loves to play with wet leaves (or outdoor splash parks). I would highly recommend this.

Robyn Nelson: First park for my lil guy and he loves coming here

Fred Pineau: We love taking the two year old to the two playgrounds. The adjacent field is perfect for running and kicking a ball.There is too much litter strewn about.

Gretchen Giovanni: A nice big splash pad. Really fun!

Juan Valdez: It is actually very fun 😄

lewie anderson: Great exercise space

Vilma Anderson: Fun place for the kids!

Ocean Dunes Waterpark: what do users think?


Heather Reed (* Shorty *): Had great time swam in pool, went down slide, batting cage, played mini golf❤️ great place for kids and adults
Response: Thank you Heather! We're glad you had a great time at Ocean Dunes Waterpark and Upton Hill Regional Park!

Myron Robinson: Great place to go in Virginia on a hot day to let the kids relax and splash. So much to do and it wasn't too crowded when we went.
Response: Thank you Myron! We're glad you enjoy visiting Ocean Dunes Waterpark!

Monica Arciga: This is a nice sized, kid-friendly water park with separate water areas. There is a kiddie pool, a splash area, a lap pool, two slides, and a separate pool for kids to play/swim. There are plenty of life guards too and they have safety vests free for kids. There are plenty of seating areas including grass on the perimeter. We went on a weekday so it was not too busy. The admission fee is very reasonable. You cannot bring any food in, only water, but the onsite food for sale (burgers, pizza, chicken nuggets, fries) is reasonably priced. They do have picnic tables outside the fence if you want to bring a picnic. The shower/changing could use some attention. Parking is free. Overall, my 5- and 3-year olds had a fun day!
Response: Thank you Monica! We're so glad you and your kids had a great time at Ocean Dunes Waterpark! It doesn't look like this hot weather is going anywhere so it's a great week to come back and visit us and cool off. :-)

tawanna davis: I was in DC for the weekend of June 25th-27th and the pool that was at the hotel we were staying at is closed for the summer. I actually googled water parks near me and came across this one. You cannot beat the prices at all. My son had such a great time we went back the next day. We'll be back in August and I'm sure we're coming back here.
Response: Thank you Tawanna! We're so glad you and your son had a great time at Ocean Dunes Waterpark! We look forward to welcoming you back in August!

KRISTEN L: Had a fun afternoon with the kids. There are not enough beach chairs
Response: Thank you Kristin! We're glad you and your kids had a fun time at Ocean Dunes Waterpark!

Gail R Opitz: What a great time! Went there for a child's birthday party. Never knew this place was a few minutes away! Lots of lifeguards employed there, different pool for lap swimming, great slide and sprinklers! Many lounge and regular chairs. Definitely going back!
Response: Thank you Gail! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Ocean Dunes Waterpark! We look forward to welcoming you back!

Ahmed Taher: We went to this water park with few families with kids, it was great, and we had a blast. The price was reasonable, and there was something for all ages, and the life gard were professional and helpful. The only issue, is the shower area, at least what I saw in the men area, need more shower rooms and to be separated.
Response: Thank you Ahmed! We're glad you and the other families and kids in your party enjoyed your visit to Ocean Dunes Waterpark. We appreciate your feedback about our showers. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon.

Mr TooBZ: Great place. We live in Arlington and our community doesn't have an outdoor pool. Bought season passes and checked out this pool for the first time today. We were super happy with our visit, the water was clear, all three pools are 4 1/2 feet and under, which is nice if you have young kids. I was able to get some lap swimming in, even convinced my 6 and 7 year old to do a couple of laps with me. My 7 year old even rode the big slide when she is really afraid of heights. I will be meeting my kids there frequently after work.
Response: Thank you Mr TooBZ. We're glad you and your family enjoyed your visit to Ocean Dunes Waterpark! We are looking forward to your return visits this summer!

Andrea Carr: Pretty decent place. Definitely family oriented and well spaced out. My kids enjoyed the splash zone. However the main pool was a little too crowded and got a little rambunctious which made it hard for the lifeguards to keep much control. Overall wasn't bad at all. I would say they could use a time out for cleaning every couple hours since the pool did get overall congested and looked a little dirty. The food area was packed, hardly any space to sit because they booked so many parties you had to take you food and stand around to eat or waste it. We sat down and within 5 mins got told to leave the table due to birthday party. Then we found another spot and sat down and once again was told we couldn't sit there for another birthday event. Which is fine but maybe they should do better job managing the area or having an attendant there to avoid people getting comfortable and having to move during their meal. My other issue is there was no where else to sit and eat so we took our food near the pool grass area and was told we shouldn't eat there either. Definitely discouraging since we paid a decent amount between entry fee and food and drinks. Most of the lifeguards were pretty helpful though considering how busy it was this weekend. Idk if we would go again just maybe go earlier before it gets overly packed.
Response: Thank you for the great feedback! We will take a look at each of these areas and work with staff to address them. We strive to offer a safe, fun experience for our guests and feedback like this helps us continue to improve. Please feel free to reach out to our management with any specific concerns you may have. You can reach our manager at: OceanDunesWaterpark@nvrpa.org

Janeth Arias: This Pool Is Just 🤯. The Reason I Love This Pool Is Because Theres A Huge Bucket That Has At least 50Kl Of Water And The Pools They Are Crowded But At least There Always Some Space Left Am I Right?. And The Big Water Slides That Are There There So Awesome That You Have Some Screaming Time Lol. This Ocean Dunes Waterpark Is A 5 Star For Me In My Opinion. It's Kid Friendly And Plus There Are Bathroom For You Can Change And Shower Hopefully One Day You Will Visit The Ocean Dunes Waterpark!
Response: Thank you Janeth for your kind review! We're so glad you have such a great time at Ocean Dunes Waterpark! We hope you come back and visit us again for another day of fun in the sun!

Great Waves Waterpark: what do users think?


Deborah O'Brien: The Great Waves Waterpark has ample space for alot of park goers. There is a variety of activities for all ages. The lifeguards were very focused on the swimmers. They were friendly yet clear on the rules. We brought food and had to leave it in the car. It was nice to be able to have the option to leave, eat and reenter the park. Fun way to spend the afternoon. Definitely will go back.
Response: Thank you Deborah. We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon.

MADINA Abdoul-Aziz: Mom, the kids and I for $59(being a resident) enjoyed our time there. Three things you should know are: - The waves area go very deep and for non swimmers like my sons and I we got pull close to 4ft and bail out after 30 min - the donut ball are first come first serve - The eating area was ok but I didn't like the kitchen. I realized they were teenager (to save money I guess) and it wasn't too clean and many people in the back for no reason since the food is premade and put in the heater ready to be serve. The cashier was telling the manager to let other come and clean and she was telling her to tell them and she was saying "you are the manager I am not...it's your duty). I also have dirty fast food smell. I guess trying oil in the air the trash can weren't helping.
Response: Thank you Madina. We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark! Thank you for your feedback about our concessions. We will work with our management to improve our operations to the five star level we require. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon.

Maia Rodriguez: $48 for 3 individuals to gain entrance to this Virginia parks and rec facility. Nice staff. Good to do on a hot day. There's a wave pool that runs every 10 minutes or so. You can grab a tube if you like during those times. There's also a playground, a large area for younger children to swim and run through running water, as well as some slides. We spent about 90 minutes here on a hot summer afternoon. For me, the fact that we can't bring in outside food is definitely a mark down. We try to eat healthy, and you'll only find things like pizza, hot dogs, French fries and Dip n Dots here. The admission price is much higher than similar county waterparks such as in Calvert County. There is lower admission price for seniors, but not for military. Additionally, there's mini golf and a few other activities. All in all, for us, would I come back here? Possibly. The cost was very high for the kind of activities and amenities offered. We enjoyed our time but the children are hungry by the end of the experience. You can get wristbands and leave and come back if you choose to. But then you have to haul all your stuff in and out. This would be a great option for birthday parties and perhaps for families with younger in particular. There's options for older children, but not as much for teens.
Response: Thank you Maia. We're glad you and your children enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark!

Amber Asamoah: For the price and location this waterpark is a good option. There is a wavepool, several slides, a splash pad, and a wading pool for younger children. We had a very nice day here but were disappointed in the food options as they only served hot dogs, French fries (which were terrible) and funnel cakes. My review would be much higher if they had better food options (including healthy options) or allowed you to bring your own food.
Response: Thank you Amber. We're glad you had a great time at Great Waves Waterpark. We appreciate your feedback on our food options and will take it into consideration when were are planning our concessions menu next year. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon.

Ellis Woods: Grandkids loved it. We had a ball. For the price and amenities, I thought it was an excellent deal. The lifeguards there were very attentive. Plenty of space and activities for the children. Keep up the good work.
Response: Thank you Ellis! We're glad you and your grandkids had a great time at Great Waves Waterpark! We appreciate your feedback. We hope you come back and visit us again for another day of endless summer fun!

Michael Erb: I had a great time going over there. Met allot of new friends. Invited my friends over there before in the past, donated, and had a great time. One of them had told me about this before and took me only there once, then already came allot, when I gotten my pass or if I only needed to pay a day at a time.
Response: Thank you Michael! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark!

Grayson Lang: The place is great, and the kids had a terrific time last time we visit here. My only suggestion is, If you don't want to pay for their expensive meals, I advise you to bring your own. Despite being acceptable, the meal is not worth the price.
Response: Thank you Grayson! We're glad you and your kids had a great time at Great Waves Waterpark! Please note, outside food is prohibited in Great Waves Waterpark. However, if guests would like to bring their own food they are welcome to have a picnic at their cars and return to Great Waves once they are finished eating. We hope you and your kids come back for another day of endless summer fun!

Sasha Conley: Price was cheap..my niece who is 3 turning 4 enjoyed her self.. although the yellow slide seems to be an issue seen the life guard have to jump in twice.. park closed do to bad weather but we still got a few hours in so worth it. Food would eat before I come or after fries tasted like funnel cake..funnel cake was super oily. Also better training for your employees it was almost a fight between workers and it was out of control..
Response: Thank you Sasha! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark. We appreciate your feedback about our concessions and will work with our staff to provide a higher level of customer service.

Diane Leiter: Obviously it's not open right now, but it looks like a really fun place. There is music playing, and the miniature golf is open because there are people playing there also. Handicap accessible, and lots of parking as it is attached to Cameron Run Regional Park.
Response: Thank you Diane! You are correct--we are planning to open Great Waves Waterpark for the Summer 2021 season! We hope you will visit us for a day of fun in the sun!

Sierra Pryor: The waves aren't too powerful, and aren't too weak. The water is cool and refreshing. The food is good and warm, and the drinks are good and cold. Many seating areas.
Response: Thank you Sierra! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Great Waves Waterpark! We hope you visit us again for another day of endless summer fun!

Six Flags America: what do users think?


Joshua Russell: We started coming here in the Fall of 2021 and decided to purchase season pass, they are very affordable. We have come a few times and I have been really impressed. They have different themes through the year which is nice to see how they decorate and celebrate. We have been to Halloween, Christmas and just went to the Fiesta theme. The wait times were really fast or nonexistent for all the rides. They had water sprinklers going which was good because it was so hot! Our family enjoyed all the rides throughout the day. There is always a staff member nearby ready to help which was really great to see and we saw a lot of people cleaning the park throughout the day. I do wish there was more mobile food ordering available though, when we were looking only one location was offering mobile orders, so hopefully that will grow. Overall great park for the family!
Response: We appreciate the review. Thank you for taking the time. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Alexandra Gross: Was very pleasantly surprised! Thought it was going to be a small cute park, but there was SO much to do there! The performers were absolutely fantastic and so talented in so many different shows! The park was very well maintained and all the staff were kind and friendly. I'm from NJ and this Six Flags definitely has mine beat!
Response: Thanks for the great review. Have a great day!

Tim Bergstrom: Great place to take kids in DC for a break from museums and tours. I enjoy museums and tours quite a bit, but let’s be honest, for kids, they can be little bit like a church service. Six Flags gave my kids and me a break from the usual and gave them a chance to blow off steam. Our favorite rides were Superman, Bat Wing, Joker’s Jinx and the Firebird. Have fun.
Response: Glad to learn your experience was a positive one. Hope to see you again soon!

Rittik Bhowmik: Great experience. Strong suggestion is to get the tickets online before visiting, there is almost always a long queue for tickets. Most of the rides were usually not that busy, so everyone can finish all the rides at-least ones, and can even go for seconds if interested.
Response: Thank you for the review. Have a wonderful day!

Jeremiah Gore: Needs another solid coaster as Superman Ride of Steel is great but where is the number 2 coaster? Some good rides throughout the park including a fun coaster built in 1917...The Wild One. By far this Six Flags has the friendliest staff of any Six Flags park... including multiple manager level employees we met while walking around the park.
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your experience. I am pleased to hear that our team made your experience pleasant and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

pam wright: Rides were barley open, lazy river, the pool with the purple slide, the purple & green slide, renegade rapids, penguin blizzard, shipwreck falls, & more ALL we’re NOT OPEN! I don’t understand why these rides are not open. You pay your money to come here, but it’s not worth it because more than half of there rides are not operating. What a shame Not to mention I have diamond elite membership, I pay 20$ extra per month for what idk? Need to cancel that! Update 6/28/2022 im going to change my rating from 1 star ⭐️ to four stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I came back here again to give them another chance. Can you believe it after maybe 1-2 years the finally opened the lazy river.. Wow renegade rapids, penguin blizzard, shipwreck falls, was opened today. It’s good to arrive early get a good spot, we ordered food it was ready and condiments was available. 🤩 However, the staff there are really young and the don’t know how to talk to people & families. They all act like they don’t want to work.
Response: We appreciate the review. Thank you for taking the time. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Terri Young: If you want to be able to ride the rides without a long wait go early during the week.. We were able to ride the rides several time without a long wait park is not that crowded when u go early it was a nice experience 😉. By the time we were ready to go the park was getting a bit crowded....
Response: Thank you for the rating. If you’d like to share any details about your experience, we are always looking for ways to improve.

Shah Md Mayen Uddin Chistee: This a great family fun place. There are so many rides that you will never get bored. I enjoyed most of the rides I took. You can take your kids there and they will love it. I recommend buying online entry ticket and parking pass. This will save some time for you.
Response: Hi Shah Md Mayen Uddin, we’re thrilled to get this kind of feedback. Thank you for taking the time to review us. Hope to see you again soon!

tammy mcilhaney: Wait ?? There are rides here ?? Could’ve fooled me!! Everything is closed! Workers cranky! Burger was a joke! Shops closed “register” issue. Maybe 1/4 of the food stands open. Maybe 1/2 the rides open. Got stuck on the Superman! The one operator for a ride abandoned her post because of a spider!

Christopher Lew: tl;dr: Relatively inexpensive tickets for a pretty fun time, although the park does its very best to nickel and dime you. Park is pretty small, but can definitely do the entire park in 1 day (depending on ride lines). Rides - 3/5: The roller coasters were very fun! The wooden roller coasters look like they could fall apart at any moment, and are so rickety it made our party very nauseous. My favorite was the batwing, and the waiting times were not crazy. It could be the time of year but the average wait time for the rides were ~ 5 minutes. Getting to the park - 4/5: Buying tickets online was very straightforward and you are paying for both Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor which is the water park. Very easy access from DC (only a 30 minute drive). Parking online is cheaper than at the gate, but when we went the POS stations were down, so they let us park for free ($30 normally)! Lots of parking with good markings to remember where you parked. Very little security at the door which was kinda concerning, but we were able to bring in snacks. Food - 1/5: We were very nauseous from some of the roller coasters, and wanted to buy some ginger ale, and it was literally 6 dollars a bottle. There is a mildly concerning food stall called ChopSix (like six flags) with "Chinese" font that served knock-off panda express at double the price. Very overpriced. We kept food in our car, and went outside the park (we could reenter) to eat.

Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole: what do users think?


Janie Bowerbank: This place was amazingly fun! We went before it closed for the season, totally worth the price and on the cheaper end. The water slides were fun for my 3 boys ages 6-11, but there is something for everyone! I thoroughly enjoyed the lazy river!

Jenn Y. Ahn: A nice little place for everyone in the family to enjoy! From little toddlers to teenagers, this is a wonderful place. They allow food and drinks (no alcohol and no glass), so bring enough food and snacks for your stay! There’s no season pass in 2021 due to COVID, but there were still a lot of people on Thursday afternoon. The staff said there’s about double more on weekends.

Nathaly Maltez: Just wow, I had my daughters first birthday party and ALL the kids had a great time. The Staff was attentive and made sure everything was going well. The spot for our umbrella was perfectly located near the entrance to the water park. I couldn’t have asked for more. Perfect place to let the kids waste some of that energy before going home.

Crystal Mitchell: What a fantastic place. Me and my 6 year old were there on a Friday from open to close. I do recommend buying tickets online, we skipped a very large line at the entrance because I had purchased online. The lazy river was our absolute favorite, so much fun! The large slides did close around 1 due to a staffing shortage, but there was still so much to do, we didn't even notice. Water was clean and warm. Sufficient food options as well. I can't think of a better place to spend a hot summer day, we had a blast! Definitely worth it.

Paul Sjoberg: Great place on a hot Virginia day. It's run well. Safety is clearly a top priority. If you have little kids then you can hangout with them in the zero entry and shallow areas. But if you have older kids you can feel free to let them roam a bit and you can post up on the grassy knoll or in a white chair. You can bring your own food, umbrellas, drinks, etc to ensure you maximize your experience. Couple tips...1. Purchase tickets ahead of time online. 2. Bring your own food and drink. 3. When it's really crowded park down by the lake instead of where everyone else is parking. Your walk will be significantly less.

Mike McCabe: This was my first trip and I was very impressed. The facility was very clean and well maintained, the staff was friendly and courteous, and the water attractions are enjoyable. We got to the Water Mine in time to get seats but not an umbrella. If you need shade I recommend arriving at opening. My children range in age from 11 to 16. They all had a good time. The lazy river is a lot of fun, and has a fairly swift current in certain parts. It was a bit chaotic at times, but the staff did a good job ensuring everyone remained safe. My youngest daughter really enjoyed the water obstacle courses. She spent a considerable part of the day doing them. The slides were also quite popular. The very large slides opened a few hours after we arrived. The line looked daunting but it moved very fast. As a bonus the line for the large slides has a terrific view of Lake fairfax. All in all we really enjoyed our trip here. We were able to have a picnic style lunch and a wonderful day.

Jennifer Whitson: Kids loved the lazy river, water slides, water play areas, and using the rope to cross the Lily pad course. Younger kids have lots of small slides, bubblers, and the mushroom water feature. Go early in order to get chairs or picnic table in the shade. Or, reserve a spot online in advance.

John Wick: I love this place, great picnic areas, great water attractions, & life guards are always attentive. Affordability could be better & a more efficient line to the big water slides would be a plus. Huge + is being able to bring inside your own food & even Uber eats food to the location!

Chris Cauffman: Good for younger kids maybe up to 10 or so. Clean facility and many lifeguards present - very safe. Food on site was of poor quality and expensive. $27 pizza was one of the worse I have had in a long time. Bring your own food if you are planning on coming or don't plan on eating on site.

Joquanna Wengerd: Really great place for families. I only give it 4 stars because of the crowds and the aggressive/forceful lazy river. But if you rent a private space to lounge and you hold on tight to in the lazy river, you're golden. There was a safely issue that came up, but it was addressed immediately by the attentive staff.

Our Special Harbor Spray Park: what do users think?


Luice Tate: Amazing find. A great splash pad and it's free! There is something for babies who can't walk, all the way up to older kids(like 12?)There are bathrooms there, a playground, and lots of shade.

Stephanie Colston: Great facility and even better staff. A special thank you to Jordan Rodriguez who was working concessions this past Saturday. Opening weekend, very busy but he still managed to help with getting my granddaughter swim shoes so she could enter the splash pad. No matter how nice the facilities are a huge part of the success of this place is dependent upon the seasonal staff and Jordan really lives up to being a great team member. Looking forward to summer 2022 and returning over and over again!

Lynn Durrant: The absolute best splash pad to take kids on a hot day. It blows my mind that this place is free for everyone. Be ready to get wet, and make sure everyone has shoes that can be worn in the water! (you’re not supposed to be barefoot here) The playground and hiking trail are also fantastic for kids. The carousel costs a few bucks, but is very fun and the gentleman that always runs the carousel is the nicest guy in the world. Overall, this is a favorite spot for us to visit in the summertime and we highly recommend.

Binod Gupta: The spray park is fun. There is a big playground next to the spray park for kids aged 2-12. Entry is free for the spray park but only a limited kids are allowed after spray park is full and then you have to wait until someone comes out. Its a fun place to take the kids. There is also a walk path which is fun. Also there is an amphitheater.

Danielle Colley: The area is amazing and love that it is free, but opening at 11:00? That’s what time we need to head home for lunch. Just doesn’t make sense to me why you can’t open at 9:30.

Madhu Kalepu: This spray park is definitely one of the best Fairfax county public parks. Entry is free. Unlimited water park fun for the kids. There is also pirate themed park beside this water park. Nice walking trails, lot of surrounding greenery. Must visit in Fairfax county VA area. Kids can spend 3-4hrs.

Sarah Frank: We LOVE THIS PLACE!! This park is just amazing. And, FYI: the best days to go are when it's a little drizzly outside. Low crowds. Just be sure to have the kids wear water shoes. The playground and nature walk are really well done. **Poison ivy is growing right off the paved walkway and up the trees on the nature trail so don't let your kids mess with the plants

Jennifer Ibrahim: I can’t believe this place is free! It can be really hard to get in on weekends but it’s easy to see why. What a wonderful place to take kids to cool off. So much to do there and so clean since they don’t allow food inside. Love that they have family bathrooms right there on site. And with a gigantic playground and carousel next door there’s no shortage of things to do once you’re done getting wet!

Fallyn Glenn: A day of fun for under $5 Staying home in the Summer we are always looking for something fun and inexpensive to do. Today we had a ball and I only spent $3. We started our day at the Regal movie theaters in Potomac Yards for the Kids Summer $1 movies. Today's choices were between Lego Batman and Trolls. Being a mom of two boys, Lego Batman won. Then to stay cool in the heat we headed over to Our Special Harbor Water Spray. This place is a new favorite and hidden gem that is totally free. We enjoyed our packed lunches under a tree, the kids ran wild in the treehouse playground and we ended the day running through the water sprays and dump buckets. A perfect Summer dayal for under $5. #fallynsfoodieexcursionssummermomedition #momoftwoboys #campglenn2018 #summerfun #kidsummermovies #watersprayparks

Drea Dawson: My son loves this place. It has a lot of water fun for the kiddos. Also. The ice cream snacks outside the gate are very reasonable. Lastly, The park around it adds to the activities.

Pirate's Cove Waterpark: what do users think?


Natasha Mills: It's not big, so, if you're from out-of-town like us, just know that. That being said, my kids (teens) had a great time. It was our first trip to a pool in a while, and they really enjoyed the pool and little slide. Not too pricey, and we didn't really mind the drive. Overall, great trip. ALSO NOTE (because it doesn't say anything on the website): there is also an $8 Entry Fee to get into the Regional Park where the actual water park is.
Response: Thank you Natasha! We're glad you and your kids enjoyed your visit to Pirate's Cove Waterpark!

Adrian Reyes: We came today for the first time to Pirates Cove Everything was ok untill an little incident inside the main pool happened and everyone in there had to go out. For maybe almost 2hours. Lifeguards went into the pool with nets, someone may drop some stuff there. Here We are waiting to see if may go in again or go home

Kimberly Naveros: Took my 16 month old here yesterday and had fun! There are lots of water slides and a sand area. Everything was clean and the staff was really nice. All of the lifeguards were really attentive so I felt safe there. My baby is still getting use to the water but I think he will enjoy it when he gets a little older.
Response: Thank you Kimberly! We're so glad you and your 16 month old had a great time at Pirate's Cove Waterpark! We hope you come back and visit us again very soon!

Kara goodman: I’m so impressed by the life guards and staff at this pool! They are well trained and do a great job ensuring everyone is safe. The pool is very clean, lots of chairs, and space, so you’re not too crowded. We got a season pass so we can enjoy it all summer long!
Response: Thank you Kara! We appreciate your kinds words. We're thrilled you will be joining us this summer for Endless Summer Fun! We look forward to welcoming you back!

Elizabeth Navarro: Get there when they open its the best time if you have really small ones. Especially when all the different aged kids start going down the slide in the toddler pool, it gets nuts. Great for a couple of hours, if you have the season pass. If you don't want to eat inside just get stamped and have a picnic right next to the park on the grass and then go back inside. Nice to see how they rotate lifegu6a lot so they never get bored or unfocused in just the same spot all day.
Response: Thank you Elizabeth! We're glad you enjoy visiting Pirate's Cove Waterpark. We appreciate your feedback as our waterpark does get more crowded as the day goes on. We hope you come back and visit us again for another day of endless summer fun!

Ebony Nash: Horrible experience. A group of 8 of us Arrived at 1pm, was not able to get in the pool until after 3. Was not informed by staff at the time purchase that the pool was closed. When I asked about a refund, I was told refunds were not available, but a rain check could be issued. I traveled far to get here and a rain check would do no good. The kids wanted to at least get wet so we stayed,since there was ONLY another 30 min wait.. Even if I lived close I'm sure this is my first and last time here. The funnel cakes were cold, the fries was Luke warm but good..
Response: NOVA Parks strives for consistency between all waterparks and agency policy provides rain checks during event such as these. On this date there was a fecal contamination and due to health reasons, the pool must close for a period of time to ensure safety of all our guests. Please feel free to reach out to the management onsite by calling 703-339-6102 so they can discuss further with you on this matter.

Alex Navarro: I will start by saying I would visit again. My kids and I had a great time. Pros: -big pool -slides for many ages -life vests for public use -lots of shade and chairs -lots of life guards -fenced baby pool -sand pit and water table for the little ones Cons: -this place was sooooo inefficient. We were maybe the 5th group in line and it still took a good 10 minute to get in. There is no reason they can’t allow for online ticket purchases ahead of time. There is also zero shade to wait in while your waiting to enter. -bathrooms were not very clean. -no changing rooms for women at least. Just one large area with open doors. Zero privacy. -no one at first aid when I needed a bandaid. Waited for 10 minutes. -waited in line to order dipin dots, only to be told they were out. Put up a sign. Again this was so inefficient. 10 minutes to take 2 orders ahead of us! Only one register open for the whole place!? -$8 for non county residents to park on top of paying for tickets to get in the waterpark.
Response: We appreciate your feedback and will work with the staff to rectify these issues and look at ways we can be more efficient. We do offer a gate house pass as a more economical way to enter the park for non- jurisdiction residents. If you would like more information about this,please reach out to pohick@nvrpa.org.

Mari Uribe: Terrible experience yesterday! Lifeguards at baby pool do nothing. I addressed a situation and the Lifeguard was upset and ended up approaching my 3 and 5yo saying they were mean just because it bother him I said he needed to give instructions to kids on how to use the slide. I addressed everything with the lifeguards manager after. Not going back ever!
Response: Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at Pirate’s Cove. We will review this information immediately with our waterpark staff to ensure that we continue to improve. We prioritize safety and customer service. If you have any additional information about your visit that you would like to share, please reach out to pohick@nvrpa.org to provide more information. Thank you.

Netta B.: Had a terrible experience here on 6/18/22. Pool manager Cameron Cardinal was very rude and disrespectful. When he was confronted about his rudeness he called the police on a group that was there celebrating a 4 year old’s birthday party. Will never return to this water park again. DO NOT recommend.
Response: Thank you for your feedback. Our staff want to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests of the waterpark. We sometimes employ the assistance of law enforcement when situations become elevated. We appreciate your insight and use this to review our responses and seek tools to provide a high level of customer service in the future.

Donna Grethen: This was a nice/cute little family oriented pirate themed water park. This park offered different swimming areas, water slides and a sectioned off area for the smaller children. They had changing rooms, showers and lockers. They also offered a snack bar and gift shop area, that had towels, swimwear, etc. Unfortunately, both were a little pricey. Overall, nice place to visit, children enjoyed it.

Georgetown Waterfront Park: what do users think?


eriko p: An incredibly beautiful area to see the Potomac as well as strolling and people watching. We arrived quite early and all the waterfront restaurants were not open yet. There is a Starbucks nearby. However we were able to witness the rowers practicing this morning which was a plus! I would love to live here! The airplanes flying out of Ronald Reagan Airport can be seen and heard so that might need getting used to if I lived here! This is a 10 acre grassy park along the water. If one needs a sense of calmness and peace, come here! From the waterfront, it is easy to take one of the side streets up to M street where many of the shops and restaurants are located. We were fortunate to take a street which crosses the C & O canal!

Da-Wang Wu: Probably because it’s a cloudy day in the end of the fall, the park didn’t look as beautiful as I initially expected. However, I would love to come back in better weather and see if it’s more lively and beautiful. Since it’s very close to the canal, visitors can also plan for a walk along the canal, which is a very interesting and tranquil walk.

La Tisha Parkinson: Really lovely for a scenic night walk. We walked there on Friday night after 10pm and it was lively and felt safe because it was strategically well lit. Strategic in the sense that the lighting didn't ruin the mood but it was still illuminating. There were also a lot of restaurants on the stretch and also an AMC cinema and an ice cream truck parked nearby.

Kids Industry Prep LLC: This was the most beautiful place to visit! We made sure we got there very early! 8am. Street parking was abundant. I decided to take photos with my little model and she enjoyed the sites just as much as everyone else did that is until she had to go to the bathroom! 🤣 Luckily mom had a portable potty 🚽. We finished up with a few snapshots of her riding her bicycle with natural flowers she picked along the way. Take a look at some of the photos we took!

Nicolas Dakota: I was thinking to sale my kidney and make money for court . Lose job at 2016 ,several time by setup arrested and cause of that can not find job .I am not felony. Just couldn't pay $1500 monthly child support but keep paying $500 as I can by cutting grass for neighbors and dog walking. Anyway after walked front water this area understood life still beautiful. Recommend everyone stop by and feel atmosphere. Any advice in correct way and respect to law welcome 🙏

Wadud Safa: The best waterfront park in the DMV area. It’s always beautiful in all seasons. It’s a great place to walk with your family and friends. If you are new in town you definitely want to visit this place.

Manny G.C.: The Georgetown Waterfront Park is a national park completed in Washington, DC in the fall of 2011. Part of the Georgetown Historic District, the park stretches along the banks of the Potomac River from 31st Street, NW to the Key Bridge.

Tarang Srivastava: Very beautiful area especially in the evenings. Lots of restaurants with outdoor seating and plenty of parking nearby. The Halloween exhibits on display right now are very nice!

Tan Sav: Part of this park use to be a parking lot years ago. Definitely a nice place to walk, bike and people watch when the weather is good.

Jeovany Espino: This view of Georgetown was immaculate at night. We walked around to get this view. Well worth it

Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens: what do users think?


Madhu Kalepu: Located near DC, Maryland border. Plenty of parking and not so crowded when we visited during long weekend. Place is great for Beautiful nature walks, picnic tables and fresh air. We have spotted Turtles, baby Turtles, Cranes, various birds while doing boardwalk. Garden closes at 4pm and the entry is free. Restrooms located at welcome center

Rebecca Wolf: Each season at Kenilworth is something to behold! In winter, you'll see an open expanse and a swamp in quiet rest. Spring starts to bring greenery and new life. Summer is a steamy explosion of tall and colorful lotuses, lillies and more! Egrets, herons, deer, turtles, fish, insects and more can be found here, especially if you come during the day when it is more quiet. This National Park is a secret oasis in Washington, D.C. - bring your visiting family and friends for a walk through the ponds and across the boardwalks on the Anacostia River. You can even connect to walk on the DC trail system. In summer, be sure to come for the VERY popular lotus festival, filled with world crafts, foods and so much more. Be mindful of the closing time and plan for at least an hour to walk these grounds.

Life in La Plata: One of my all-time favorite parks: so much beauty. You can look at the plants around the ponds, or the ones growing in the ponds, and you can try to spot wildlife in the water and the trees. There are bike paths on the far side of the park (if you drive). Plan to go early, the park closes at 4pm.

Ash Pouvaranukoah: An awesome place to be! The place is crawling with so many types of critters. Restrooms are nice and efficient. Definitely a great quiet place to bring family, friends, or just yourself!

Jill Cobb: It was a nice winter/early spring walk along the ponds and boardwalk. Nothing was blooming, but we saw turtles, frogs, and fish. Seems like summer is the time for the flowers.

Lisa Gump: I came to the gardens with a group of students and it is a beautiful Park to visit. I will admit though that it was tough for us to find. We AR not from the area and it is not easy with all the construction to get here. The park is worth the navigation woes. There are lots of things to see and do.

Connie Massaro: This is a unique aquatic garden in the DC area. Best time to visit is in the morning. The water lilies and the lotus are spectacular. There are different small ponds where they grow the lilies and the lotus. Bring your cameras!!! There is also a boardwalk and trails along the river.

Dave Park: As of about two weeks ago (7/17), the lotus and lilies were about 60% bloomed and I’d say all of them should be good for viewing now until mid-August. Beautiful flower blooms all around, so don't miss your chance this summer! 🤙

Steven Esquina: The place was really nice lots of plants with beautiful lilies, frogs, deer, even foxes if you are really lucky will scurry about there are smalls docks that you can walk on to get close to the water where you can see ducks there is even an elevated platform where you can see the whole pond!!

Sam Chen: A nice place to spend several leisurely hours. The time I went there the water lily was not quite blooming yet, it must be beautiful when it does.

Cameron Run Regional Park: what do users think?


Stephanie Powers: A compact venue, so easy to walk around cool light displays. Manageable for really little ones. And they can wtite and mail their letter to Santa there. Location is advantageous for anyone in the Alexandria/Franconia/Kingstowne regions. Easy access off of 495. Affordable for families. Easy parking. Wasn't crowded. And nice that it has two fire pits to sit around with hot your chocolate. And the broadcasted music gets one into the holiday spirit!
Response: Thank you Stephanie! We're glad you and your kids enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run!

Jenna Fitz: This was an amazing event! Honestly it’s really only worth it if you go ice skating. The lights it’s self takes maybe 10 min to walk through we walked through them twice. Tons of photo opportunities. There’s a shop for kids to get light up toys as well. The skating was a ton of fun especially at night around the lights. Tickets include skate rentals. It is real ice. Was not crowded at all when we went. If you’re not good at skating no problem they have little walkers to push around and little kids can sit and ride them. Staff is very friendly and they watch over the ice for people who fall. I brought my 6 and 9 year old we had a great time
Response: Thank you Jenna! We're so glad you and your kids enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights!

Diane Leiter: Cameron Run Regional Park has plenty of parking, and apparently encompasses Great Waves waterpark. Other than that all I saw was batting cages, one picnic shelter although apparently there's another somewhere, and people hiking, biking,walking, exercising dogs and engaged in some type of battle with wooden weapons. It was entertaining. I am hoping I missed some of the parks activities, although I'm not sure where they might have been.

Donna Brown: Omg, Don’t have a party for kids here. The pool was ok The party reservation area is not worth it. The pizza dough was raw but the cheese was cooked. We send the pizzas backed and got the same results. Uncooked pizza. They provided ice cream with no spoons. There is no trash can for the four picnic tables provided.
Response: We are sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations. Please reach out to management so we can make this right. Cameron@nvrpa.org. We strive to provide a great experience for our guests and will review your feedback with our management staff to ensure we continue to improve. Thank you.

Neal K.: It's a very nice, quiet place. Good for walking your dog or exercising. Occasionally you'll find people washing their cars in the parking lot.

Alan Fike: I came by at around 5pm for mini golf, so it was when things are closing down for the day, so I didn't really get to see it, but we enjoyed the mini golf and the wave pool still looks fun.
Response: Thank you Alan! We're glad you enjoyed playing mini-golf at Cameron Run Regional Park! We hope you get a chance to visit Great Waves Waterpark--it's a fun day for all!

Lori Kim: It was good for the price. Super cheap at 12 dollars a person but crowded and not very high quality. Good enough to please the kids though

Carol Nicotera-Ward: I did not go to the Cameron Run Water Park, which is not open because of the pandemic. However, I did find the beautiful little lake behind the park, which is idyllic! Cook Lake is a stocked with catfish and trout and is an urban mecca. During weekends you can hear a lot of Beltway noise, but this is still a lovely place to walk and observe turtle families & minnows, red-winged blackbirds & ducks. I almost hate sharing this, if only because it's a hidden gem.
Response: Thank you Carol! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit to Cameron Run Regional Park. We hope you visit us again very soon!

Enough Media Productions!: We were all there for an amazing night for their Christmas lights. The staff was super kind, they made our baby laugh and made us truly feel like the holidays were in their hearts. This is definitely something we will continue to come and enjoy every year so long as they offer it
Response: Thank you! We're glad you and your family had a great time at Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run! We look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Susan Frazier: We were here for Ice and Lights. The displays were lovely, but there were only a few, so the teenagers and I were finished within about 20 minutes, and that was walking through twice. This would be really fun with young kids, though. We didn't ice skate, but that would make the stay longer.
Response: Thank you Susan! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run!

Splash Pad: what do users think?


Kristen Egner: We came here to play on the splash pad, which had no indication that it shuts off. 8 p.m. and the fountain would not turn on.

Will Armstrong: Fun place for kids (and sometimes grownups) to cool off in RTC. My daughter can't pass it on a hot day without running through it!

Kerri: Great splash pad for kids! It felt much safer than most of the splash pads we go to, but there was still one section of road that was a little too accessible for my liking. I don't understand why VA doesn't gate in their splash pads like other States do.

Amy Malady: My son loves this fountain. Free to park on weekends. Always kids to play with, but isn't too crowded. Shaded seating for parents too.

Almira Sidiq: Love this place. The only problem in this place is, sometimes it feels like it’s a dogs park😄.

Gary R: Fun local play spot for kids. Nice on a hot day. Ground seating I the shade nearby to keep an eye on the minions.

Nicolas Comstock: Not dog friendly and fountain wasn't on during hours of operation

Amy Ellis Owlways: Fountain is still closed

Meredith Hannon: It's not working right now...

Rekha Patel: Nice place to enjoy in summer.

Tatyana Matthews: It’s the best place to spend with family and friends my family and I had the best time there and we can’t wait to go back this summer with some friends

Réda Srayi: The prices are affordable. They open at noon and close at 6PM. The food is a bit expensive compared to other places. Pizza shop closed at 3PM for some reason we were forced to buy either burger or hot dogs or chicken strips. You can't have your own food which is understandable. They closed the shower room and restroom at 5:30 PM for cleaning so we couldn't used it. Is a good place for the family and the kids worth visiting from time to time.

Digger The Dolphin: This is nice waterpark and not crowded. I enjoyed having fun at SplashDown Waterpark.

LaSheba Wilson: This is sooo much fun. I love just staying in the lazy river. The pool portion is too damn small to have that many people tho. You can not swim there it's just too damn crowded. You have a better chance swimming in the lazy river. 😆

•erin s.•: Great smaller waterpark. Nice to spend a day with family or a group. My daughter prefers our neighborhood pool, but I love the slides.

MrJrneujahr: Good for older kids. You have to be over 48 inches tall to do half the stuff there. You get a couple kiddy pools and some small slides for the liitle ones, but not much other than that for them.

Naidelyn F: train your staff better please. First of all, the staff refused to serve my little sister her food. She payed for it, was waiting patiently until an announcement went on because it was going to rain and the park was going to close. We both over heard the lifeguards CONTEMPLATING on giving my sister her food she already paid and had been waiting for and closing for the rest of the day while there was a whole line of people (including other lifeguards) waiting for their food they ordered as well. They refused for twenty minutes until they saw her receipt and made it. absolutely ridiculous After that happened, my bf and i went to the restrooms to change quickly. When he tried to go in, the male lifeguards blocked the entrance and rudely told him he couldn’t change and he had to leave (he was literally just changing his shorts) meanwhile the boys were yelling at me to stay in the women’s room because it was “too dangerous” for me to be in the rain?? but then when i went in the girls were telling me to leave? Anyways, i finished changing, left the women's room then waited out for my bf because he had my phone i didn't know where my family was. Guess what? The boys start yelling at me again telling me to go back inside again then i ask them if theres anyone in the restroom and they say no i so go to the entrance while this was happening to me, my boyfriend was in the entrance. in front of him was a white big bald male in a green shirt with his arms out like he was blocking my boyfriend from entering the park. (Mind you this man was big as hell size and height wise compared to my bf) The man was racially profiling my boyfriend, he was muttering things under his breath and only targeting my boyfriend while there was a big crowd in the entrance. that man and the other staff members around kept claiming there was nobody in the park and that i wasn't in the restroom. my bf saw me walking with my pink towel over my head and called the white male a liar. He was just concerned because i didnt have my phone and nobody tried to look for me or even bother to radio another staff member in the restroom to see if i was there and safe. Im disgusted with how the staff handled that.

M N: Fun but come to once or twice a summer prices are to high for a family my 9 year old is taller then 48 inches I think they need to re-evalue that

Erin Gresham: Super fun highly recommend. Books are a think. My dog is cuter than all life guards combined.

Nadana Ravishankar: We went there for memorial long weekend. We were there at 11.05 am (I.e the opening time) but little crowded at that time. Lots of parking but only limited rides but kids would definitely enjoy this place. I have spent a lot of time in lazy rides and pipeline rides. It would be nice if we have more slide length in cannonball ride. All the pools are clean and well maintained and worth for $16. We will be coming back again for another visit

Glenn Dale Splash Park: what do users think?


Maha Aub: Perfect for kids , there are many splash pools for toddler and kids - from 1 feet to 3and 1/2 feet deep as maximum . An online reservation ( park direct ) make you avoid the waiting line . The team and The life guards are professional and doing very good job . They give 10 minute break each hour ( I found that good for kids ,parents and guards )

Turner C: This is a fun clean space for the family. My wife and I take our children here all the time. It is perfect on a warm summer day. You can bring snacks and drinks to the splash park and can find ample seating at the various tables. Also remember if you have young children than all life vest must be coast guard compliant. Get there early so that you can get in. Also if you pay online in advance than you aren't required to wait in line. Instead walk to the staff member holding a paper at the front. They have a list of everyone who registered and paid in advance.

Jeff Schwamb: Great little slash park with a maximum of 3 1/2 feet deep and a side little separate splash area for toddlers. Highly recommend reservations.

Sunnie Jackson: Really great for kids 2 to 5 due to the slide and separate area! There is also a side for big kids and strong swimmers with a bigger side and deep water.

TIFFANY PLEASANT: The front desk staff Joann is horrible. Refused to answer any questions or look up any information on events at this center as "she didn't have the time to" was her response. This is not my first call to the center, this is their typical response. Being new to the county and this area, I would have thought this center would have a bit more professionalism.

Favour Ikechukwu: Didn't know what to expect when we made reservations, but honestly, my kids and I had the time of our lives. The kiss from the sun was greeted by the coolness of water. I looooooveddd it.

Natalia Garcia: Love small pool and slide for kids. Nice and clean. Great costumer service.

Jamelle Thomas (JPie612): It's nice and clean and my little one had a great time. Most of the part caters to small children but big kids had a blast too. The bathrooms were pretty clean but you can't expect too much from a pool bathroom. There was adequate soap available when I went but no way to dry your hands. Overall I would take my kids again, preferably on a slightly cooler day, though the kids didn't seem to care.

StrongCurvyFit Fitness, Family & Wellness Advocate: Super fun and family friendly! Clean restrooms and fun but professional life guards too.

Arieon Days: It was a fair experience. It's a bit small but the kids (2 and 3) thoroughly enjoyed themselves. For small children, it's really great because it's not a lot of walking you'll be subjected to. From what I noticed it only goes to 3ft. Plenty of lifeguards around.

Adam Doyle: Went here for mini-golf. Had a coupon for $1 off from another Nova Parks mini golf location. Cashier wouldn't take it because she said it was only for weekdays, even though it didn't say so on the coupon. Actual mini golf course was run down and we were the only ones there. Also, we wanted to buy a drink because it was hot, but they said that concessions were only available for the water park.

Michelle Harvey: Safe for kids. Fun for adults young & old. The staff is helpful. The place is clean & well maintained. The lifeguards pay attention.This was a great way to safely get back.in the water after the Covid shutdown of pools & Waterparks.
Response: Thank you Michelle! We're glad you and your kids had a great time at Volcano Island Waterpark! We look forward to welcoming you back for a summer of Endless Summer Fun!

Freddy Campos: This Waterpark is nice, very big, organized, one thing the bathroom need a little more attention, more cleaning and sanitize,
Response: Thank you Freddy! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Volcano Island Waterpark! We appreciate your input into our bathrooms. We will work with our staff to ensure our bathrooms are kept to the cleanliness level we expect. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon!

Nicole Seman: The mini golf does not have a separate location so this is what the review is about.This course was nice for several reasons. Primarily that it was connected to nature and family friendly as evidenced by the deer. Secondly it was not crowded and there was no wait. The Algonkian park staff was helpful on the phone (both times). The largest positive was that it was free because the gate was open however that required having a putter and balls, which luckily the pro golfer in our group possessed. However, there were several areas where the course needed some work. Overgrown leafy bushes made it difficult to walk. Rain drenched some of the holes and also the putting greens which made it challenging. Also the hole with the secret tube was not seamless, our ball got stuck and I had to reach my hand in to receive it which was not ideal. The waters were swampy and most of the holes were plain. I would recommend adding a dinosaur or something even like a volcano to make the water park. Not complaining for a free round of golf, which is why I am giving 3.5 stars.

R Lynch: Overall good park but the people who attend ruin it, staff does not encourage people to rinse off prior to entering, wear proper swim ware, and kids don't have swim diapers. Over all just felt very unsanitary and third world.

Branch Echols: My two girls 7 & 8 absolutely love this place. The water park is a blast and also has a mini put-put area.
Response: Thank you Branch! We're thrilled you and your girls enjoyed your visit to Volcano Island Waterpark! We hope you come back and visit us for another day of endless summer fun!

Maryam G. Ali: The kids had a blast :) it was super clean and well managed
Response: Thank you Maryam! We're glad you and your kids had a great time at Volcano Island Waterpark!

Vinod Halaharvi: Nice get out if you want something quick . Good amenities and life gaurds and med on site
Response: Thank you Vinod! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Volcano Island Waterpark!

NOOR Mehraj: It was a great experience in this water park with toddler kids.
Response: Thank you Noor! We're glad you and your kids had a great time at Volcano Island Waterpark!

Elkhan Yusubov: Good place with nice picnic amenities nearby. Has a small parking space but nearby general park spaces help in case you can't park close by.
Response: Thank you Elkhan! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Volcano Island Waterpark!

Super, Awesome & Amazing at The St. James: what do users think?


urbanwarrior2: Very nice large multiple sport venues great place for a kids with lots of sport related activities, climbing, My favorite, the Virtual Realities location.lots jumping ,very very family friendly my 8 year old grandson and his classmates had a ball

Kyong Han: The music is loud and the lyrics are not appropriate for young children. Noise induced hearing loss is a growing problem in children. The noise level here is hazardous to young children. We had a birthday party here and I was embarrassed that our guests had to scream just to have a normal conversation. The music in the VR room is so loud that you can feel the vibration through the other side of the wall! I did speak to a manager and was told these concerns will be relayed to Dan. I hope they make changes, soon.
Response: Hi Kyong, We apologize for the experience you received upon your last visit. Dan, the Director is Super, Awesome & Amazing has spoken with the staff and is in the process of reviewing better music options going forward. We appreciate your feedback.

Bee Love: My Mother had a very bad experience here with my 2 children. the people at the front was very rude, also the people they allowed in the facility were even more of a disgrace to humanity. This place really needs to be evaluated and workers need to be more efficient when it comes to customer service.

Megan Maciejewski: Drove over an hour to take my kids here to use a Groupon I had for them. Looked at the website in advance and all time slots had over 40 spaces available, but you can only book for an hour at a time. My Groupons are for 2hrs. We got there and were told they could not have 2hrs of time, we could only do 2-3:30 because birthday parties at 4 made them fully booked (website still says over 40 spots for each time) and the front desk person was a bit rude with his attitude in telling us we should have made a reservation. Said he could "accommodate us" by giving us an hour and half and I clouding grippy socks (which the website doesn't say is required - only to wear closed toe shoes), and when I agreed he said, but you know you really should have called to make a reservation before coming." We left. Extra attitude not required. We even called to see if we could get in later and, when we were told no, pointed out that I can make reservations on their website right now for an hour at a time - which requires up front payment. They said we know the website says there are spots available, but there aren't. Cool. What would've happened if I bought reservations only to get there and be told they won't honor our reservations? Their front desk staff need an attitude check and their website is desperately in need of updates to provide factual information.

Killa Tv: I had the worst first time experience at this establishment, my grandchildren and I were going to attend my other grandchildren’s 3rd 🥉 bday festivities that were being held in the water play area, my 2 grandchildren and I age’s 5 & 3 stood at the front desk for a few minutes before being serviced, then as we were finishing up (still at the front desk) another Caucasian woman nudged my 2 little grandchildren out the way, I over looked that due to the fact my grandchildren were walking off mind you the young man who was the cashier witnessed all of this, grandchildren and I walked down the stairs, walked to the soft block seating arrangement to put their none slip socks on, I put My 5 yrs old grandson’s none slip socks on , he walked towards the trampoline area as I continued to put on my 3yr granddaughter’s none slip socks on, turn to hear a child screaming never thought it was my grandson, it was he had just that fast busted his front tooth out of his mouth, not one adult went to this child’s aid, I got the child into view to see that it was my 5 yr old grandson, I walked him upstairs as staff never payed us any attention, time as I walked then medic or whoever walked up to me and asked them walked off with him quickly as I’m looking for them ( no ice pack offered nothing, they weren’t accommodating no way shape or form yet wanted to walk him around to see where he did, but also no time did the clean it up !! This isn’t a kid friendly safe play ZONE!!

Su Wai: Music is waaaaaaaaay too loud and inappropriate for young children. The lyrics to one of the song was “I’m gonna shoot you down” and another “rub you down south..” This just adds to the disorganization that they (nor the parents) need. There’s so much potential here but it’s sheer madness with the loud music. I’ve asked them to turn it down numerous times but to no avail. This past weekend, I witnessed a pretty significant accident where a boy fell off the beam and landed on his head. We were trying to call his parents but no one could hear us from the corner because the music was so loud. This is a serious violation of safety.
Response: Dear Su, We are sorry that your experience at Super, Awesome & Amazing didn’t quite match your expectations. We would like the opportunity to investigate your feedback further. Could you please contact Dan McDonnell (our Director of Super, Awesome & Amazing) at Dan.McDonnell@thestjames.com? Our team takes these matters very seriously and we want to ensure we resolve these issues. Thank you.

reon miller: Amazing place there's so much to do, indoor water park, indoor swimming, indoor basketball courts, indoor football and soccer field, indoor wall climbing and indoor ice skating ring baseball place a place to practice your golf swing and more...last but not least athletic wear shop. AMAZING
Response: Hi Reon- Thank you for the AMAZING review!

Bert Parham: An incredible value for your money when using the Groupon!

Lee Stat: This place is also very good for self development. The workers are very encouraging towards children and very friendly. This super, awesome, amazing place builds up positive development and builds up self-esteem. Non members is $25 an hour. The five pack is either 5-1 hour plays or five people for one hour for $99.

Jacob Henson: Best place for kids of all ages and definitely best prices.

Atlantis Waterpark at Bull Run: what do users think?


V. A.: Really great time. Just perfect for a weekend outing for my kids ages 7-13. There’s enough here to keep them occupied for hours. The food was not bad either, for pool food. We arrived early to get chairs, but there were seats open around the pool throughout the day. Finally, the staff was exceptional. Polite, professional, and safety-focused. You really can’t ask for much more at a community pool/park!
Response: Thank you V.A.! We're glad you and your kids had a great time at Atlantis Waterpark! Safety is our number one priority! We will most certainly pass along your kind words to out staff. Thank you!

Shannon Johnson: Good waterpark for 10 and under. Admission for our group of 4 was about $40. Three main areas of the pool include: 1. Shallow pool (best for toddlers) 2. Interactive water "playground" 3. Larger pool 3ft-5ft deep with slides You are not allowed to bring outside food, the food purchased (see picture) was about $15. Bathrooms need more attention than they get. Camps do frequent this water park and it can get crowded/crazy, thankfully, lifeguards are very attentive.

Punj Abi: FUN!! It's a great Waterpark at Bull Run regional campground for all ages to enjoy. Very clean. It is affordable option for a day of fun with the the entire family.
Response: Thank you Punj! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Atlantis Waterpark! We hope you come back and visit us for another day of endless summer fun!

Shelly A.: My 4-year old had a blast! We arrived at 11am and were pleased by the cleanliness and condition of the facilities at opening. Lifeguards were plentiful and attentive. We were concerned about crowding but there weren't many families. There was plenty of room for social distancing. I recommend this for families with infants to 1st grade. Bring your own sand toys, sanitizer, wipes, and bottles of water. Giving 4 stars because: (1) The cafe needs healthy food options. (2) The cooks need to check their oil temp. If at correct temp, the cooks are overloading the fryers. The food is coming out greasy. (3) The toilets and showers could have used a cleaning mid-day. (4) It would have been nice to have a cleaning cart (paper towels or wipes) so people could clean off table tops.
Response: Thank you Michele! We're glad you and your 4 year old had a blast at Atlantis Waterpark. We appreciate your feedback and will work with our staff to address these issues.

raven Queen 9: Nice Waterpark, better for younger kids then older but it's a nice place nonetheless. Customer Service is pretty nice considering it's a Summer Job for mostly teens. Sucks about the no outside food rule but at least they let you leave and come back. The Lifeguard Drills are a bit overdone but I guess that's good for safety. Good to Note the pricing is based on height and not age. If your tall enough to ride the big slides (48 inches) then your tall enough to pay the adult fee. To enter the actual park it's located in their is a fee but only if you don't live in Virginia. Bit hard to find, but that's less the places fault and more Google maps.
Response: Thank you Raven! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Atlantis Waterpark!

Troy Lupo: It's a small park but especially great for the younger kids. My biggest complaint would be that we didn't get a full day because of a storm which is understandable but they were giving some people passes to come another day and not others. We only got 2.5 hours in the park and a good part of that was standing in line for food. We didn't get a pass to come back.
Response: Thank you Troy! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Atlantis Waterpark. Please reach out to our manager with your concern about the rain check. We would like to have the opportunity to make things right. Please email us at: atlantiswaterpark@nvrpa.org

John Perez: We enjoyed it, great place for the family. Pools were clean, lots of slides and play areas for kids. Only complaint was staff the place is run by kids, cafe was a nightmare and food was not good at all all our food was not fully cooked. Avoid it or get fries and chips. No manager on site to help us waste of money. Other than that the pool and slides were great which is the important part.
Response: John--thank you for your feedback. Your feedback will help us improve our operations as we move into the busy summer months. Thanks!

Tiffany Niehl: Went on a Monday afternoon while camping here- hardly anyone was there!! Just think maybe you shouldn't have to pay to go if you are camping here.
Response: Thank you Tiffany! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Atlantis Waterpark. We offer a reduce entrance fee of $4for our patrons who are camping at Bull Run Campground.

JM KWON: We love this water park. We went 2-3 times a week this summer wih the season pass. I really respect the life guards here because they work so hard all the time. Their eyes never, even for a second, wander off somewhere else. They are always working by the protocol even if it sometimes turns out to be a false alarm. They saved so many lives this summer!!

Sober Reflection (Sober reflection): This is a lovely place with a very chill atmosphere and a nice sound system. The setting is serene, the water park has a variety of fun offerings for all ages. When you look at this water park and the others in the regional park system, you realize this is a very affluent area. I'd say go enjoy these really special and so lovingly and well managed amenities, do your part to take care of them and sustain them, and don't take them for granted! Life is very good here. And it's even nicer at Atlantis water park
Response: Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Atlantis Waterpark! We appreciate your kind words.

City of Gaithersburg Water Park at Bohrer Park: what do users think?


zellen richardson: Policies of admission for THIS water park ARE NOT made clear on it's website. I was unable to take my great-nieces and great-nephew there on yesterday because of admission policies we were unaware of. The kids were VERY disappointed and we went somewhere else.

Meggie Trevino: Good place to enjoy with your kid. They have rides, and the lifeguards attentively watch everyone, especially the children.

Asheesh Kumar: Small but well maintained water park which is on the doorstep for City of Gaithersburg residents. Rides are fun and lifeguards closely monitor people specially kids.

Roxana Landaverde: Very busy! Must be a Gaithersburg resident on your drivers license to pay on 6 (non)residents pay 12. Can bring food! But no drinks!

Tiffany Smith: This is a fun place for children of all ages to go. I read the reviews and regulations before coming so I would not be surprised. It's on their website. I'd say only 1 lifeguard was a bit overzealous yelling at the children but everyone else was very pleasant. One lifeguard had to jump in to save a younger child during our stay. He was super fast and on top of his job. The only gripe I have about this place is the lawn chairs. Now, how can you upgrade the Waterpark and not the chairs. They are old, raggedy and need a permanent visit the trash! If you can bring your own beach chairs, I would advise this. Just call first to see if it's ok. Otherwise, this place is great. Can't wait to come back!

Frutee Salad: a fantastic place to take kids. I wish it were larger so you wouldn't feel crammed in.

Elisa Kranwinkel: My school visited the pool last week and had a blast.

Hao Wen Kong: The big and shallow pools are perfect for small children. The small pool with playground is on the other side for the toddlers. I got $12 per person from Groupon. Under 12 are free. Small store sells beach balls, goggles, and other things.

Stephen Brown: Very nice waterpark. Water slides for adults and small children. Large main pool has beach style entrance, which is perfect for little children. Sprinklers and an island built into the main pool, plus a Boardwalk Burgers and Fries on location. All very nice and convenient. The point deduction of course comes from service. On my first visit there, I went with my two daughters. At the check in counter, I am told the non county resident price is $21 for adults per visit, a bit higher than I expected but whatever, as both my toddler daughters were free admission. The attendant then tells me after 5pm its discounted. Nearing 6pm, I say okay what's the price. She was quite pleased to tell me I only have to pay $20. With my huge savings in hand, I'm abruptly told I need to empty my ice water bottle and use their water cooler. And then I'm told if I have to run back to the car for anything there is no reentry without paying again. Really?? With two kids? Trying to put that ridiculousness behind me, after we find some recliners under some shade, we head to the pool. Not 5 mins later, thunder is heard and everyone has to exit the pool. 5 mins after that, the ordered the park closed at 6pm, an hour before normal close. Very frustrated, I told them I arrived not even 20 mins prior, and after some hesitation they offered me a day pass. Bottom line - the place is very nice, but the silly discount, and the no reentry rules need some reconsideration. Sorry for the book...

John Howard: This is a very strange place. Just to get in there you'd think you were boarding a plane: id required, no water bottles(!), no reentry (every amusement parks or sports stadiums allow this!), bag checked. I have never before seen a place like this not allow water or reentry. Worst of all, the workers are rude and completely over the top just to enter the pool. You feel like a common thief, even though you are paying outrageous fees just to enter.The admission is $11 for moco residents, yet this isn't really a water park. Just a pool with two slides. You would be much better off going to a county pool at a fraction of the price without dealing with the numerous obnoxious employees. A little customer service training is warranted. The kicker is my daughter who is 11 and has been on the swim team since the age of four was mortified when the lifeguards came in and "saved" her. She was just swimming in the pool like any other swimmer. Seriously. I'm really scratching my head over this one. Maybe the lifeguards have a quota of number of "saves" they have to make a day and try to drum up anything. Such a bizarre place!!! Would avoid!

ZoomAzon Falls: what do users think?


Micah: This is a section of Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags America that includes 4 water slides. All of them are somewhat fast, but slow enough for kids to ride. The slides are very twisty and don't have any drops. I personally had a blast on each and every slide. Overall, this slide is great for moderate thrill seekers and anybody else who likes water slides.

Damien king: I like this newer version of the lazy river, there are some.great additions like buckets that will maybe or maybe not dump water on you. And some other parts that will.shoot water on you, and a wave generator (to.keep it a little choppy) but I hate that the river is only 2 and a half feet deep. But hey it's not bad

yog 77: This place is been a playground for my children forever Saturday when we decided to go up for the day some lady decided to pick my bathing suit bag up with only towels and bathing suits in it no money no necklaces no rings no jewelry no cash and removed it and moved it to next to the security guards hello people obviously if I left it there I'm coming back to it this year has been the absolute worst year at Six Flags I will not be returning!

Kristen Peerman: Good set of slides with minimal wait but can be slow at times.

A Mac: Fun

Z Mengal: Our go to place in summer. Reasonable prices and fun place for kids. It does get pretty crowded esp on weekends. We prefer going on week days. Can’t wait for summer!

Ricky Campos: Nice place to have a few hours of fun and some relaxing time. Some quick tips: - Get there early especially if going on a weekend. Gets crowded, then, when at capacity, you'll have to wait to get in. - No outside food or drink, except bottled water - 15 min break for adults in the main pool at 45min every hour. Slides stay open however. - There are a lot of lifeguards always keeping an eye out. - At times the pool gets so crowded that it's hard to move about, so be prepared for that. Adult swim time is great to get in the pool with basically no crowd. - Pizza is good, tenders are ok. The one thing I would say that needs improvement is the layout of the chairs. There is a lot of wasted space around the property and it seems that the placement of chairs gets overlooked. Some chairs are placed on hills that get uncomfortable real quick. Spreading out some might help with the feeling of being too crowded.

Chad Goyette: Decent water park with excellent prices so you can enjoy throughout the summer. $8 a person to get into the park. Slightly cheaper for kids. The have pizza and chicken tenders, along with drinks for decent price. ALSO, the lifeguards are top notch!! This is the only place I have ever witnessed 5 saves in a single day. These lifeguards are on top of their game.

Ladie Quin: The park is great. If you want to try and get a good seat arrive within 30mins of opening. Otherwise they are open to moving to see if maybe be. The food is good it’s really inexpensive sometimes they’re out of certain things all in all it’s okay. I have photos but none that focus on the park Itself 🤦🏽‍♀️

W Reid: Food is too expensive and not that good. Otherwise, the park is pretty good, and the lifeguards are somewhat attentive, considering they're teenagers. They're more attentive to parents sitting on the edge than the 20 ten year-olds cutting line and running all over. But, it's not bad.

Glen Hiler: A fantastically good value for family fun! My son (2.5 years old) loves it! Get there early if going on a weekend as it fills up fast.

Elizabeth Navarro: Was excited about trying this place out and was nearby and had water gear. Had everything ready to.go and enjoy for them to say we only accept cash TODAY??? There should really be signs somewhere that say if they are only accepting cash. wasn't worth the frustration of trying to find an ATM and went to the waterpark close to home

Sam El Gbouri: Great place to be, enough space and shade to sit and enjoy time with family. Life guards are always few feet away, and they are constantly watching. The only 2 things I didnt like are first them not allowing food or snacks to be brought inside. If you want to eat you have to order the over-priced limited choices from the in-house restanrant. The second thing is when it is crowded, and it really does get crowded you lose any intended pleasures. So if you see it too crowded turn around and go do something else.

Michael Sedor: Me and the 8-yo have been to a bunch of the NoVa Regional waterparks and Waterworks in Dale City isnt as elaborate as those or as fear-enducing but it is half the price. It's basically a public pool with a two twisty two-story slides, a splash pad and ropes balancing course of over water. We LOVE IT HERE. It's the perfect place for a newly confident swimmer and/or someone dipping their foot into waterslide fun. Older kids, however, might be bored. And be forewarned, no food is allowed inside (but water bottles are). Shady spots are limited but during the week the crowds aren't overwhelming. If you care to venture into the surrounding park there are some nice trails and lots of excellent geocaches to be found.

Jason Vandergriff: After a couple trips here, I do recommend this place for a family outing for locals. Admission price is only $8 per person on the weekends and there is plenty of space to stretch out in the sun or shade. This water park does get busy, so expect some wait time during peak hours as they do not overcrowd the pool area.

The Carousel on the National Mall: what do users think?


Christina Minderman: Visited in late May 2022 and it’s still marked and closed for scheduled maintenance but there is no work in progress and it is definitely showing signs of major disrepair. Would not expect it to be open any time in 2022 based on the current state.

Alisha Lynch: Everyone riding requires a ticket and if your child is under 42” then you have to ride with them. Tickets are $3.50 so not bad. It is about a 3 minute ride. My daughters both had fun and really enjoyed riding!

Sam Odle: $3.50 for a carousel ride that lasted 3:45 when I timed it. If your kid is under 42” (~107cm) you’ll have to spend another $3.50 to stand next to them. Pros: beautiful location, the carousel itself is well kept and historic - before it moved here in 1981 it was part of Gwynn Oak amusement park and became notable when on the same day that MLK gave his “I have a dream” speech, an 11 month old child became the first African American to ride it. Cons: employees always seem disengaged, seemed pricey to me but I’ll let you be the judge!

Shane Jenkins: A good break for all the walking for the kids. About $3.50 per person, even kids accompanying children. Good harmless fun. Puts big smiles on the kids faces. Everyone loves a merry-go-round. Don't care about the cost it helps keep the upkeep of the carousel and gets people paid.

Damon Bryant: A great place for the kids to have some fun. It's currently not open due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Billie Thompson-Romie: A welcomed break for kids while sightseeing at the National Mall in DC. But this is more than just a carousel, it is the only carousel with four horses all abreast jumping. Also, it was a symbol of desegregation on Aug.28, 1963. Something to read up on before enjoying a ride!

Pika Fusion: A good place to rest with kids before moving on with your walks around Washington DC. There is a huge plane of grass to rest on.

Terry Smith: Took my grandchildren there Saturday September 4th 2021 at 11:00 a.m., but it was closed. No explanation, even though the website said it would be open. The Visitor's Center was open, as was the Natural History Museum, so things were otherwise functioning as advertised.

Rebecca Bigler: It's ok... Compliments first: the ride is longer than the few other carousels I have been on recently and each unique 'horse' is well maintained. My 2.5 year old loved it. Complaints: $3.50 per person for all age? Are you kidding me? And the employees barely communicated as we bought our tickets and boarded.

Kevin Allen: Beautiful carousel right on the National Mall. We always give our little ones a break here while touring -- a quick ride on the merry-go-round does a lot to relieve the fatigue kids get when touring all the museums! The cost is quite reasonable -- only $3 -- and this is a classic carousel built in the 1940's with a fairly long ride. My kids have always enjoyed the more unusual mounts -- like dragons and the like -- that are available next to the standard carousel horses.
