Waterworld is a Paradise for 10-Year-Olds

Waterworld, a water park for kids of all ages, and a vacation paradise to my 10-year-old, is located just 25 miles east of San Francisco in Concord, California. Waterworld is open only during the summer months so I recommend getting over there for some wet and wild fun soon. As stated on the website, “Many rides at Waterworld California are dynamic and thrilling!” My son and I agree. We had fun on each attraction, and every one was an adventure. We can’t wait for one more ride on the Tornado!

Know before you go:

  • Enjoy a deluxe experience by renting a cabana for the day
  • If amusement park faire is not your style, bring your own food
  • There is a shaded picnic area located to the right of the entrance; outside food and drinks, coolers and picnic baskets are not permitted inside the park itself
  • Remember to have your hand stamped at the exit turnstiles for re-admission
  • Beer and wine are available inside the park

Fashion notes:

  • Wear flip-flops to save your feet from hot concrete
  • Lather on the waterproof sunscreen to preserve your skin
  • Bring a pair of sporty yet inexpensive sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection
  • Thong swimsuits, Speedos or other revealing swimwear not permitted
  • Swimwear is required for all rides and attractions
