Raging Rivers & Waterparks

Want to beat the heat this summer? Splash into the Raging Rivers Waterpark which features eight attractions that are sure to keep guests cool when the heat begins to sizzle. Raging Rivers offers family friendly fun for all ages.

Thrill seekers will enjoy rides like the seamless 500-foot dual Cascade Body Flumes that twist and turn down the natural hills and contours of the park or enjoy the Runaway Rafts, a 600-foot-long adventure through swift water and wild rapids to three pools. Park goers will love the Shark Slide, which floats riders down a 45-foot tunnel flume into a catch pool.

Raging Rivers Swirlpool

Raging Rivers has a one-of-a-kind Swirlpool which is a two-bowl attraction that takes riders down a tunnel flume, then swiftly into a giant vortex and ends by dropping the guest into a deep pool of water, incorporating three rides into one! 

Raging Rivers Breaker Beach Wavepool

For guests looking for a more relaxing experience, the park features a 700-foot-long Endless River of cool, clear water that lets riders float along at a tranquil 2 ½ mile per hour pace in a continuous loop, there is also the 18,000-square-foot Breaker Beach Wavepool for everyone to splash around in.

And just for kids is Itty Bitty Surf City that features a pint-sized waterslide, splash pool, rain tree and tunnel area. Tree House Harbor is another interactive play area for kids, featuring a crawl tunnel, overhead rope pulls, tunnel slides and the ever-popular bucket that fills up to later spill 1,000 gallons of water. 

Raging Rivers is located at 100 Palisades Parkway off the Great River Road in Grafton, Ill. For more information regarding operating hours, attractions, ticket prices, specials, directions and more, call Raging Rivers at (618) 786-2345 or visit RagingRivers.com.
