Honestly, I should've just went to Splish Splash at least the staff there are respectful and accommodating. Mountain Creek staff is rude, unaccommodating, and lazy. Everyone staff member gives you a different answer. There's no refund policy which is ridiculous and outrageous. This place was...More

I'm glad I did not read some of the negative reviews before going to Mountain Creek Water park. We had a great day and kids (ages 10, 13 & 15) had a blast and especially loved the Colorado River & cliff jumping. There is definitely...More

This water park is so nasty. I am usually not so blunt in my reviews, but it is in so much need of someone who is going to make sure the place is kept clean, but I’ll get to that. The cost is 45.99 for...More

Good fun with the rides. However, poor planning from the park as we had to wait for the tubes to be available. So,waiting eventhough there was no line. The food, terrible. Especially the ”bear barbecue”.

So disappointing! This was my favorite water park until I found out they closed the Tarzan Swing... Such a drastic change as everyone I know loved that particular attraction.

Yes there are. You can't be on "My 600 Pound Life" and expect to go down the slides, using the tubes, climbing all the stairs, etc. The place is literally on a mountain so there is a lot of walking involved.
