it was a nice water park with various slides for all ages. I would suggest going in the morning or early afternoon. Nights seemed for high school or college age.

I thought Watiki was a great first waterpark. It being attached to the hotel we were staying at was a huge bonus. Only 3 waterslides and a small lazy river, so we needed less than 2 hours to experience everything to satisfaction.

Place was packed with children. If you don't like chaos and noise this is not the place for you. The slides are fun and the kids had a great time as did the adults. It's a good spot for what it's worth.
