Thanks for everyone coming yesterday and hope you had fun. We had close to 400 boy and girl scouts take advantage of free admission. We have a shirt from troop 495 out of Huntsville that was left behind. Please contact info@bigriverswaterpark.com if this belongs to you.

40 bucks a person just for a daily visit? I promise you, you will only get one visit from my family a year.

Does it need to be their uniform shirt or does their Pack/Troop field shirts work as long as it says the Pack/Troop number?

Is there an online deal for the weekend of the 25th?

Wouldnt mind seeing a promo code or something for the last few weekends that they r open....

Total waste of money! Y'all talked us into season passes saying "next week slides and kid zone will be open". Well, SEVERAL weeks later the slides and kid zone opened, has only been open a short time and now y'all gonna reduce operations to weekends only?! Could've told people that when you were busy lying to get passes sold! Nit to mention EVERY time we went the park NEVER opened at 10 am...more like 10:30 gates open and attractions like lazy river and wild isle at 11. Someone needs to learn how to run a business....

I purchased my "365" pass LAST memorial day when the park was originally scheduled to open with the email telling us that these would last for a season NOT a summer, meaning 365 days AFTER initial activation. NOW, for those of us who DID buy them last Memorial day are now being told that OUR passes will EXPIRE in September while everyone that bought them THIS year will get to KEEP them for one YEAR after activation. I do not believe this fair or correct for all of those that pre bought passes when we were all LEAD TO BELIEVE the park was going to open LAST year and now to be told our passes are ONLY good for 2 months, I just activated mine July 4th of this year and have been there 2 times. Would like to know what is true about all of this and when will be done about it. Thank you

So glad I didn’t buy any tickets to this Waterpark. I have seen nothing but disappointment in customers, from water slides not open etc to now ppl buying tickets and getting to the park and it’s closes. Wow. I’m gonna stick with Schlitterbahn I think. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Astroworld and Waterworld were never open during School hours. The people of Big Rivers know what they are doing and I'm very impressed with them.

We need to make plans to go on a weekend before it closes for the winter.

God y’all are the WORST!!! what’s the point of paying so much money for season passes when we can barely use them the rest of summer? What about the MANY MANY stay at home moms in the area who want to take their little kids there?

Im not one to defend this particular park as they have been telling lies for years, but this is standard operations. Majority of the employees are still in school and their availability becomes scarce the couple weeks prior to school. So their hours are only reflecting what they are able to accommodate staffing wise.

I got my tickets online and it says only valid weekdays and expire the 8/18 ...how can we use them if it's close during the week

You should stay open another few weeks after school starts so the adults can play too without it being sooo packed.

Aww.. kids still have another week and half! With season passes

Completely understand. All the parks do it when kids go back to school even splash town does it. Is it unfortunate since w elite in the south and its stays hot. Yes. But we live in the south so that doesn’t mean anything changes. Is just how water parks operate

ALL waterparks and neighborhood pools close during the week once school starts. This is not new. Even amusement parks do this. Most employees are HS or college kids. So...no employees and no customers when summer is over. smh

This park needs to stay open until we no longer have hot weather....This is the South....we have consistant hot weather all the way up until halloween....Closing the park halfway through August is crazy....UNLESS.....the reason they are doing it is because most of their employees are students and they have to go back to school...if so....they should have accounted for that....

Very disappointing. What's the point of having a pass that lasts 365 days if you cant use it 365 days?? Bummer.

It would be nice to be able to go during the day for some adult time when the kids are in school...just saying

Agree !!! Should of stayed open longer.... Adult time.... What good are season passes....

Weekends being Fri, Sat, Sun or only Sat/Sun?

Wth was looking forward to going without the kids 👎

Linda Meza the park is closed until Saturday

Yosy Monte Maria Cleopatra Cuevas I wanted to go without the monkeys 😩
