Wild Rivers water park in Irvine is back! Here’s how you can visit all season long.

Wild Rivers is back! We visited Wild Rivers water park in Irvine back in high school and we were bummed when they closed. Now it’s back – we are no longer kids ourselves, but we have kids – and we are ready to go!

Located in the heart of Irvine and the Great Park, Wild Rivers is looking to once again establish itself as the premier waterpark in Southern California – and we’re adding it to our list of favorite waterparks in Southern California.

Wild Rivers Water Park in Irvine

What to expect at Wild Rivers water park in Irvine

The newly designed waterpark will have over 20 acres, 20 rides, 3 restaurants and endless fun. You’ll come for a day and stay for the summer.

Managing capacity

In this first year, Wild Rivers is going to limit daily capacity to create the best possible experience! It’s about riding rides not waiting in line for them.

Reservations at Wild Rivers

With such excitement building around their grand reopening, Wild Rivers is expecting a high level of demand so tickets will be available by reservation on a first come first serve basis with a daily limit so that everyone that comes to the park has the best experience possible.

Rides and Attractions at Wild Rivers

Wavepool

The 25,000 square foot Shaka Bay provides a great place for guests to cool down as they frolic in diamond shaped wave patterns, good for old and young alike. Open to All Guests/Non-Swimmers & Guests under 48” A Lifejacket is Required

Six person rides

Tortuga: Guests in six-person rafts take high speed twists and turns down an enclosed serpentine flume and are injected into large Aquaspheres with exciting oscillations around 90-degree corners. But that’s not all – after the Aquaspheres, guests shoot though the tight corners and high-banking turns of the Constrictor before concluding their ride by splashing into a pool. Up to 6 Guests Per Boat, all guests must be 44” and up.

Typhoon: This six-person rafting experience offers a multitude of sensations with tighter turns, higher banks and steep drops into the 20-foot diameter MEGAtube™. Riders finish by entering the eye of the storm and a zigzagging decent of fast, near vertical, oscillations before entering the splashdown pool. Typhoon will be a guest favorite. Up to 6 Guests Per Boat, all guests must be 44” and up.

Bora Bora Boomerango: Since this attraction was introduced to the waterpark industry, it has rapidly become one of its most popular and family friendly attractions. Rafts, each accommodating up to six guests, shoot through a 15-foot-wide flume at the inception, drop 25 feet and then speed up a rapid, near-vertical incline. At the top of the incline, gravity forces the riders to change direction, building momentum as they speed down the incline through more twists and turn as they gradually decelerate into a receiving pool. Up to 6 Guests Per Boat, all guests must be 44” and up

Anaconda: The last of an unprecedented string of four six-person raft rides is the Anaconda. This ride is a family favorite, featuring loads of wall time, speeds of up to 20.5 mph, surprise drops, twisting turns, and the ability to create a shared experience with family and friends. Up to 6 Guests Per Boat, all guests must be 44” and up.

Lazy River

Castaway River: Guests can relax on a scenic ride on an innertube over the course of a 34,000 square foot, 1,700-foot-long closed-circuit winding river with multiple entrance and exit points. Guests can float on tubes and relax while moving with the current. Up to 6 Guests Per Boat, all guests must be 44” and up.

Body Slides

Tomcat Racers: Much more than in the typical mat racer, Whizzard riders are dispatched into enclosed high-speed AquaTubes that bend alongside each other through multiple lanes of twists, turns, and a 360-degree loop before a surprise drop into open lanes, for side-by-side racing. Adults, Teenagers

Tahitian Toucan: Tahitian Toucan is a remake of the iconic Sweitzer Falls ride, will be a tall, straight, open-topped slide that shoots guests out over and drops them 4 feet down into an 8 foot deep splash pool. Younger guests will likely attempt Tahitian Toucan before graduating to the faster Bombay Blasters. Riders 44” Over Who Can Swim in Deep Water

Bombay Blasters: One of two iconic rides brought back from Former Wild Rivers, Bombay Blasters guests will slide down dueling dark enclosed tubes that start high, fall steeply and shoot each fast-moving rider into the air to drop four feet into an 8 foot deep receiving pool. Riders 44” Over Who Can Swim in Deep Water

Tala and Mano: Wild Rivers needed some tradition serpentine body slides and that is where Tala and Mana come in. But these side by side slides aren’t typical body slide. Tala has both open and enclosed sections while Mano is completely closed…but Mano has multi-color aqaulucent rings as you start the ride and translucent sections at the bottom so your friends can see you just before you finish your ride. Adults, Teenagers

Intertube Rides

Fiji Fall: Constrictur: This four-story body slide complex includes an exciting variety of twists, turns, and drops that can be enjoyed by customers of all ages.
