Disclaimer: I received tickets for entrance and complimentary lunches for myself and my family in exchange for an honest review of this facility. All opinions are my own.
We've been to Raging Waves a few times over the years. Each time, I walk away saying, "Man, we need to come back more often!" Between the great variety of activities for my kids and the easy location, it's silly for us to NOT go, actually. Especially when there are such great deals for savings on tickets online! Right now, you can get a pass for a weekday visit for only $15 through the LivingSocial.com deal (find it HERE). And for locals, a season pass can be purchased for anywhere from $77-$130 depending on age and where you live (though I highly recommend buying an earlybird pass in the wintertime. It is a HUGE savings and my own sister loves their family's passes!).
The information shared by the Raging Waves staff was really informative and interesting. I was happy to hear how highly they value safety. Little things like having clear tubes instead of solid to allow a clear view for lifeguards makes a huge difference. I personally witnessed several lifeguards doing an in-depth scan, complete with hands pointing and heads bobbing, which is all a part of their safety procedures that ensures that every inch of the water is being scanned every ten seconds. Every ten seconds!
Overall, RagingWaves in Yorkville is a clean, safe, and really fun waterpark for anyone seeking a day of slides and pools. Thanks for the awesome time, Raging Waves and we can't wait to go back again!
