Often considered to be the king of Williamsburg water parks, a trip to Water Country USA is a must.

Know the Rules
Williamsburg water parks also have rules in place for the safety of guests. These rules vary from what can enter the park to what guests may wear on water slides. Do your research before entering the park.

Pack a Picnic
After experiencing all the water parks have to offer, you'll work up an appetite. However, the food at Williamsburg water parks can be pricey. Instead of paying top dollar for a hamburger, pack a picnic and leave it in your car. Simply have your hand-stamped as you exit the park and enjoy a midday summer picnic. Upon returning to the park, show your stamp to the attendant at the entrance. Double check each water park's rules for re-entry first!
