"Life guards"
June, 2017
Okay so this is a good place, real fun , but the life guards aren't so amazing
Here's why:
1, they fussed at a boy who was being loud in the Wally's Lagoon cave and he has a mental disability that he can't help ( that means he can't help being so loud )
2, in the Wipe Out Wave Pool I was In the like 4 1/2 feet section and right in front of a life guard and these 2 kids ( about 8 and about 2 ) appeared to be struggling to stay above water and I tried to get the life guards attention but she looked then looked away so I had to get someone a little taller and stronger ( and an former life guard ) to help me get the kids and pull them back to safety
3, we were in the lazy river and one of the kids in our group got caught up in the current and so we pulled off our floats and waited by the enter / exit for him and we got fussed at by one of the life guards after explaining why we were standing there
I'm sorry but that's not good customer service nor good responsibility and those are safety hazards
Overall it's a fun place

"Amazing Monday"
August, 2016
Our family outing [ 10 people ages 65 to 6 ] had the most incredible time of our vacation .Everything else was pale in comparison . None of us had ever been to something like this. Even the food and drinks were fairly priced. We could not of found a better way to spend a whole day of fun and thrills.

"Overcrowded & Run down"
August, 2016
When we went there was not one chair left anywhere on the grounds. We finally found some on the roof of the bathroom. They were horribly run down though and missing many of their straps so that your butt or legs fell through the chair. Even after paying waaay to much money my whole family, including my kids elected to leave early.

"Amazing Time"
July, 2016
My family and I had so much fun at Wild Water and Wheels....it was the greatest time ever. I believe me and my husband enjoyed the water slides and the pool and the lazy river more than the kids in fact the kids were ready to leave before we were...unfortunately mother nature took its course and we had to comply and end our amazing day...I'm so glad we got there early so I wasn't too disappointed about the weather. Overall everything was GREAT!!!!

"Great water park with something for all ages"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 06, 2017
Visited this park with our kids & 4 grandchildren. The 11 year old was entertained as well as the 3 year old and all the adults. It offers a large variety of slides, lazy river, kiddie pool with baby slides, wave pool, plus which is in addition to a number of rides for all ages. We were only disappointed that the two rides for small children outside of the water park area were not running because of an understaffing situation. Unfortunately those two were the only two rides geared to a young child. The older children were able to enjoy bumper boats & the race cars. My only negative review was the poor condition of the restrooms. They were pretty dirty & not attended. They really required cleaning & there was no cleaning of the limited bathrooms during the time the park was open. Any dirty condition reduced the availability of useable bathrooms. We enjoyed a fantastic day together as a family. It was a great value for local water attractions. There was plenty to choose from and offer a fun filled day!

We had a good time there. The go kart track should be one line instead of two. Or add another track for the different types of cars. We waited in line a long time. The Friday evening everything pass is a good deal. We tried a little bit of everything.

We took our grandchildren to this park for the day [2 boys- ages 9 and 11] We purchased the 'ride everything/all day' pass. 2 Senior passes and 2 under 12 passes cost around $120 which wasn't bad although I believe there are other discounts available. The park is jammed with attractions between essentially two sections- the water park and the go-cart track. All-day ride everything is the way to go. We were busy from 11:00 to 5:00 and took part in all the attractions several times. On a really hot day, the water park is refreshing. Plan to get there early enough with your tickets already purchased on-line to eliminate having to stand in line to purchase passes and also to stake-out first dibs on the lounge recliners/chairs you want. Also, get a locker to store beach towels, etc. All in all, it was fun for the two grandchildren which was the important thing.

"They've Stopped Caring"

Reviewed August 30, 2017
Now sure what happened to this place. My family used to come here all the time a few years ago, and we thought we would return during our recent trip. We made the trip from Myrtle Beach to Surfside on a beautiful morning to arrive at Wild Water and Wheels, hoping for a great day at the water park. When we arrived, the parking lot was full of angry folk who had also driven to the park, only to find that they were closed due to the weather. It was a beautiful day. There was not employee on site. Around noon, there was a post on their Facebook page notifying everyone that the park would be closed for the day, but that they would be open tomorrow. So, we gave them the benefit of the doubt and went to find something else to do with the gorgeous weather day. The next day, we returned to Wild Water. We called before we left the hotel, and could not speak with a human. The message said nothing about being closed. However, the Facebook page still said they would be open. Again, we arrived to join an angry crowd in the parking lot. This time, there were cars at the office, but they ignored our doorbell rings and phone calls. No business who treats its customers with such disrespect and who does care to communicate with their patrons will not be in business long. My family won't be fooled again.
