Wild Rivers is Southern California's premier waterpark! With over 40 water rides and attractions, two huge wavepools, and special features for kids and adults, Wild Rivers Waterpark is the perfect place to chill out for a long day in the California sun.

If you dare, go to the top of Wild Rivers Mountain. Over seven stories high, its rushing rivers and sheer-drop slides offer daredevil excitement. Surf and splash in Thunder Cove, the only place in the country where you can catch the wildest waves in two side-by-side wavepools with fantastic surf from mild to wild. Relax on Explorers’ Island with a lazy inner tube float down a warm river, refreshing spas, and scaled-down rides and wading pools for young adventurers.

At Wild Rivers Waterpark, satisfying your family’s hunger and thirst is a cinch. At the Java Hut, enjoy everything from fresh-brewed coffee in the mornings to iced mochas and espresso smoothies during the heat of the day. Colonel Hawkins Restaurant offers a wide variety of dining options prepared with simple and fresh ingredients and suitable for any diet. At the Congo Café, Executive Chef Clark Hutton has reinvented traditional theme park food and has prepared a menu of both simple and gourmet meals that can meet the demand of a quick-service environment. And if you have a sweet tooth or are in the mood for dessert, the Sweet Shop is the place for you.
