Water World, located just minutes from downtown Denver, is the largest water park in the United States. The entire park, which has been named as one of the Top 10 Water Parks in the United States by the Travel Channel, now covers over 64 acres of land. When Water World opened in 1979, the park was much smaller and had just 2 water rides. Since that time, it has expanded and now features 46 water rides including tube rides for the family and thrill rides. The park also includes picnic areas and play areas for children. Parking is free.
Water World opens in May and is open all summer until Labor Day weekend. Visitors can purchase daily park passes online as well as season passes and learn about park discounts and coupon offers. Passes can also be purchased at the park itself. Kids under 40 inches can visit Water World for free; children from 40 to 47 inches can purchase tickets for $30.99 and general admission for children over 47 inches as well as for adults costs $35.99. Seniors over 60 years of age can purchase tickets for $6.99.
Visitors can also purchase discounted mid-day admission tickets to the park which can be used to enter the park any time after 1:45. Children from 40 to 47 inches can purchase a mid-day admission ticket for $17.99 and visitors over 47 inches can purchase a mid-day admission ticket for $20.99. Senior tickets for mid-day admission are still $6.99. Visitors with mid-day admission tickets can not use coupons or other discount offers to further reduce the price of their tickets. Ticket prices for both regular tickets and mid-day admission tickets do not include a 4% Federal Heights city tax which will be charged on all orders.
Visitors can obtain various information on the park online. It is possible to view a list of rides and find out information including height restrictions and ride locations. Visitors can also take a virtual helicopter tour of the park online, rent a cabana for their family, check out guest guidelines, learn more about picnic facilities, or download a map of the park.
The park also features a special “Splash Cash” program. Visitors can charge up to $100 on each waterproof “Splash Cash” wristband. The wristband can then be used to make purchases throughout the park. This means that visitors don’t have to worry about carrying a wallet or a pocketbook at the park.
