WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort Reviews & Ratings
Three stars for this water park. Mostly clean environment, family friendly food options. A big plus; they give Military discounts. The reason for three stars are: 1: There are almost no lifeguards on duty. The ones that are, look like they absolutely hate their job. This is definitely no Great Wolf Lodge. 2: There are several slides that are out of order, or in need of major maintenance. 3: Extremely pricey for an a water park of this size, and with non functional rides.
Not the best water park, not the worst either. Granted we visited in October on a weekday, so admission price was acceptable and the park was quiet. The slides were fun for the first time, didn't feel the needs for second runs. Lazy river is ummm... super lazy... As in it's not really moving if you aren't moving yourself.
Great place for family fun and relaxing. A bit 💲 but if you go for the whole day or almost the whole day totally worth it. One thing I wish they would have is the height requirements at the bottom of the stairs so kids can measure up before climbing all the way up with the possibility of having to turn around and come down because they are to small to go alone.
We stayed at a hotel attached to the Waterpark which offered a discounted rate for Waterpark passes and complimentary spectator passes. Had our hotel not offered this, we would not have been back. The good: Lots to do as the park has plenty of “attractions” from slides to a small lazy river. The bad: Lack. Of. Lifeguards. WOW. My husband worked in a similar hotel Waterpark as a lifeguard several years ago and we were appalled by the lack of attention the lifeguards on duty had. We went to the Waterpark 3 nights in a row. The large slides had a lifeguard at the top and one at the bottom. No lifeguards are the smaller slides attached to the play area, which I observed the slides at the play area had several kids going down right after another. Although these slides are smaller, there definitely should be a guard at the top monitoring when a child comes out and then allowing the next child to go. At the bottom of the large slides, the guard seemed to be more focused on stacking up the tubes than paying attention to the people coming out of the slides. At one point, while waiting for my son to come down a slide, I personally had to get the attention of the lifeguard (who was busy stacking up slide tubes) as a little girl was struggling to swim to the stairs. If you do not have a strong swimmer, heck, even if your kid is an expert, know that you will need to monitor them as the staff sure won’t. The hot tub is lukewarm and is overrun by children of all ages. There is not a lifeguard posted near the hot tub area so if you’re looking to relax, look elsewhere, as the posted hot tub rules are not enforced. Overall very disappointed with this Waterpark and primarily all due to the lack of Lifeguards. I hope that management will look into this before something terrible happens.
Really fun slides and splash park. The people that work here are super nice as it seems to be the case everywhere in South Dakota. The only complaint I would have is it doesn't seem like they have the water very clean. I really don't care but it bothered my wife and my son quite a bit.i wouldn't shy away from here. It's pretty dang fun!
