Evergreen Wings & Waves Waterpark Reviews
We spent about two hours here. My kids are too small for the rides so they spent their time in the splash wave and the other swimming pool. The water temperature was fine. Kids preferred the... more »
I'm mixed on rating wings and waves. The pros:. It's a lot of fun! The four big slides are all great fun! They do a good job organizing everything and if you go on a slower day, you can ride slides nonstop. Or you can just relax in one of the pools and hang out. They also have a great splash zone for little ones with some fun smaller slides. The employees are constantly running drills so are well trained in case of an emergency. The slides and equipment (like the tubes) all seem well maintained. The cons: A lot of the roof paint has peeled. It's expensive to get in. Well worth the money if you go on a slow day, but if you're not going for long or if it's busy, not worth it at all. They also have a LOT of teens working here. Ones that aren't particularly motivated to do their jobs. At the top of the slides they do great rotating life guards that man the slides, but when we went they were more into socializing than actually working. We were there for about 5 hours and I have to say we probably spent an extra (you already wait a lot!) 30-60 min waiting in line because they weren't paying attention and sending people down very timely. It's a shame cause in a place were it's very organized and for a place that relies on things moving like clockwork, it was incredibly frustrating. Especially when all four slides are clear, all the lights are green, and they are just standing together chatting while a hundred people just stand there waiting. Maybe it was just an off day, but that's the biggest reason I only give 3 stars. For the price of admission it should run much more smoothly. And it's great that they have teens working a fun summer job, but waiting hours in line is bad enough, dragging it out is much worse.
I have loved this place ever since it opened, the wave pool is great family fun, the hot tub is always the perfect temperature, but the last time I went, while going down the green water slide(nose dive) solo during the bowl part it spun me around backwards and I ended up sideways which caused me to flip over and smack my head very hard on the side, not sure yet if I have I concussion but I will update this when I know. Edit: did not have a concussion just hit my head, so I'm changing my 2 stars to 4 because it still is a great place for the whole family.
