I have been coming to roaring springs for many years, but this year the bathrooms are the worst. Someone will even sign the sheet by the door, and the bathroom stalls remain filthy. Life guards act like police, blow the whistle at you and yell at adults like they are little children. I was swimming under water in the wave... More

It was okay except food was very expensive and took a long time to get. Ordered a taco salad and the girl literally scraped the burnt rice off of the bottom of the pan. When I questioned it she acted surprised I didn't think that was ok. Considering you cannot take in your own food I would of expected better.

Top choice of activities for my grandchildren from 5 to 15!! The water rides are wonderful for all ages! The lines for the rides can be long on weekends of course! Even the food is quite good! This is a great place to send hot summer days!

Roaring Springs is a great place to visit with kids, especially if you can hit the water park on a day where there are few visitors (weekdays!). With a ton of slides for kids and thrill-seekers, this water park is one of those rarities: A place where the lines aren't huge, the trip from the bottom of one slide to... More

I have come to Roaring Springs every year since they opened. We even bought season passes four years in a row. We stopped because it just got a little too expensive to buy them annually when we didn't have much time to go. Instead, we take the family once or twice a year. That is because for a family of...

My family and I travelled to Roaring Springs in Meridian, Idaho for a day of fun and lots of water. Mostly, it was a company event so we got to see lots of our old co-workers. Riding the tubes and water bumper cars can get quite competitive and lots of fun. We ended with some pizza at the restaurant and... More

This is a smaller water park than some which made it that much more enjoyable! You aren't wasting time walking all over the place. They have nice slides, pools, kiddie area, and a lazy river. They provide life jackets of all sizes or you can bring your own. There is food available although we didn't get any so not sure... More
