Where will you spend your summer days? …In the natural surroundings of the mountains?...On the beach?...Poolside? Well how about all three! Mountain Creek's Waterpark awaits, with over 2 dozen unique rides, slides and pools set in the mountains of Vernon, New Jersey, just 47 miles from NY City. Experience the thrills of 1,600 feet of pure whitewater adrenaline on the infamous Colorado River Ride, the largest water ride in the region. Leap from the Canyon Cliff into endless blue water, or rocket down Thunder Run or The Gualey, the most supercharged whitewater tube rides you've seen! Drop 40 feet on our Vertigo and Vortex tube speed coasters...in the dark! Plummet 99 feet in just seconds on the H2Oh-No! speed slide. Swing into action on the Tarzan Swings, or race through the dark and shoot out 10 feet above the water on the daring Cannonball. High Anxiety begins with a 5 story drop before accelerating riders into the immense funnel that propels you to panic-inducing heights and a momentary Zero-G experience. It's the shore without the jelly fish! The Hightide Wavepool is one of the largest pools of it's kind, sculpting over 450,000 gallons of water into perfect sets of waves every 10 minutes! Kids World offers more than enough fun to keep the kids happy all summer long. Have a blast in The Spraygrounds, relax in the Lost Island River, zoom down The Hook, or play on our multilevel interactive water play fort, complete with water slides, spray cannons, water hoses, and a 'fishy' shower!

This place tops Disney World in my opinion. The cliff jump and the Tarzan swing were my favorite. Great for teenagers. Went in 2015 and went back the following year.

The parks layout is a bit strange, there are lots of hills and not very convenient to explore with small children. I have a 4 year old so the activities he was able to participate in were very limited. Overall we enjoyed the wave pool and small water slide. The park is average but admission price was not bad.

Took our 3 grandchildren to the waterpark. They had a great time. Be prepared to walk a lot, I mean a real lot from the parking area to the entrance, then from entrance up all the mountain to the rides. The wave pool is at the very top. You certainly will get your exercise. The food was good, but expensive,... More

We went on labor day a few years ago and it was the exact same thing. A park employee told us there were only about 1,000 customers that day,... More

Mountain Creek seems to offer the right combination of high thrill rides as well as more relaxed options and kids of all ages can find something to try. We liked that it was in a green setting, with pretty mountain and forest views all around. Lines were short, the place seemed clean, staff were friendly. Might be partially because it... More

Went to buy online tickets to the park today so we didn't have to wait in line, and they refused to honor the discount online pricing and instead charged the full door rate online. Called customer service and they say they use the airline game pricing system and charge higher rates as the date gets closer. Im like really? This... More

As this was our first time at Mountain Creek Waterpark/Action Park we did not know what to expect. One thing for sure is that we were going to as their slogan says "Get Out and Play"! It was my daughter's birthday and we wanted to unplug and go outdoors this year for some fun. And some fun is an understatement... More

Renamed Mountain Creek after trying to seperate itself from the infamous "Action Park", the park has now reclaimed it's original name and it's formal glory. It's a great water park, definitely better than Hurricane Harbor. The park has more than just tube rides (Like the Tarzan swing and the cliff jump), and has a more natural outdoorsy feel than most...
