The water park was the perfect size with something for everyone. The big slides were so much fun & the lazy river & wave pool were great for relaxing. We would definitely recommend a day at Summer Waves!

I liked the size of this water park. Not too big and easy for a family on vacation to navigate. The food available is good. I have went twice this summer. The first time I was a little disappointed because after paying $84.00 a storm...More

This was our first time trying the water park and we were so happy we did. It's now a must-do when we come to Jekyll Island. We brought a 5 and 2 year old and they both had an absolute blast. There was plenty for...More

It’s a little pricey for what you get, but it’s still fun. There are probably 5 or 6 slides worth your time, a lazy river, a wave pool, and a kid’s area. The usual. Nothing fancy, kind of nasty (then again all water parks kind...More

Love that this place is not so large. Just a basic 1980s small waterpark but affordable. Great family outing.

Small water park. I think there were maybe 3 or 4 slides, a lazy river, and a wave pool. Good but small. Could use more maintenance. Rust on slide steps and lots of debris in lazy river.

Perfect activity for the whole family! We had 15 children under the age of 11 and there were plenty of water activities to keep them active for 5 hours. The sub sandwiches provided by Larry’s Giant Subs on location were delicious and fresh. It was...More
