  • We enjoyed our recent visit to Big Surf Waterpark. It was a hot summer day, but the park wasn't overcrowded. There were plenty of lawn chairs in the sun, as well as private cabanas and tables...  more »
  • This is a family fun activity! They have 2 water slides for “competition” races, a toilet bowl slide, Zambezi Falls, and a raging river slide. There is a kid zone, baby zone, a lazy river, and a wave....  more »
  • A small but well run water park, Big Surf continues to have one of the best wave pools within two hours of central Missouri. Though it's rides tend to be a little more relaxed / smaller than the larger parks, the lines tend to be shorter and go quickly, the food options are good for a small park, and the food prices tend to be a bit more reasonable. There are five main slides, with one being fairly intense / a sharp drop at the beginning, ranging to more mild slides (not including a lazy river). Three of the main slides don't need a tube and three do. The Space Bowl is probably the best non-inner tube ride, though it's easy to get stuck at the beginning due to the initial lack of incline. The last drop / space bowl portion is the fun part. The cliff-like tube ride (I forgot the formal name, some call it "the banana") is definitely the most intense ride in the park, with a steep drop of about three stories. Worth making a day out of with friends, family, or a youth group. Been twice. Good experience both times now.
  • Overall, the park was great. The kids had fun. Cabanas are nice but don't offer any real privacy. Food was overpriced and mediocre, but honestly, the kids loved it. I just wish there was a few adult options. Park and water was clean. Staff were super courteous and helpful. Going back in a few weeks. Totally a hit.
