Wild Waterworks


Hamilton is the hometown of Wild Waterworks, an adventurous water park located on the beach strip. Wild Waterworks is set to provide you with an incredible way to beat the hot temperatures we've been experiencing this summer.

From the moment you arrive at the park, you know you are going to have a fabulous time. The weather is hot, the breeze off of Lake Ontario is nice and the parking is free. The line ups are long, but quick to move. The prices are just right. (Note to self: Hamilton area hospitals sell discounted tickets in their gift shops). For those whom have to work during the day, the park is half priced from 4pm 'til 8pm.

Walking thru the entrance, there are food stands, tables, change rooms, lockers and picnic tables. Peaking out from behind the picnic tables is a grand wave pool, awaiting the exciting squeals of the young and more experienced individuals alike. Set up in ten minute intervals, ten minutes of astonishing waves, followed by ten minutes of downtime to allow you to catch your breath, time sure does fly while you're there.

It's off to the slides and what an adventure they provide. There are two body slides, 6 stories high, the corkscrew and the kamikaze. These two slides alone provide you with heart pounding excitement. But, if you're looking for even more thrills, there are 4 tube slides sure to get your heart racing.

Have some lunch at one of the onsite establishments or bring in your packed coolers for a picnic. The activities at this park are going to make you as hungry as a bear after hibernation. Be sure to stay properly hydrated throughout the day. And, never forget to reapply your sunscreen accordingly.

After lunch may be the perfect time to lounge around in the Eazy River. A tube is provided and you flow easily thru the river. It's a great place for some laughs and to get your heart rate back to normal.

For the wee little ones, there is an area just for them. Little Squirt Works is a small splash pad complete with a fountain, sprays and mists and a wading pool with slides.

With all the excitement to be had and heat to beat, what are you doing still reading? Grab the family ... let's go already!!!
