On Saturday, May 29, my husband and I headed off to Water Country USA. We checked prior to leaving SC to see about military discounted tickets, but we were told that we could only buy a discounted ticket on base, and they weren't even sure which bases had tickets. Obviously the base here in Charleston, SC doesn't have tickets for a water park in Virginia.
We arrived at the ticketing booths around 10:30am where the lines were already forming. We waited about 15 minutes to purchase our tickets and then headed off to the locker rooms to change into our swimsuits. Locker rentals run roughly $10/day. Just thought I'd throw that in there.
The morning started off rather chilly, at least by my standards. I didn't want to ride any slides right away, so we headed off to the Hubba Hubba Highway. This really was a lot of fun . . .just floating along. We rode a few slides afterwards and then had a ridiculously overpriced lunch of hotdogs and fries. Add in a drink and the total was somewhere around $14. Typical of theme parks, I know, but I still find it atrocious to pay so much for mediocre food at best.
We had a rather pleasant day, and this was a decent water park. It is certainly not a Blizzard Beach a la Disney by any means, but a good quality place anyhow.
