Wild Waves is a relatively small amusement park, with a relatively large water park. In the sense that it doesn't have a discernible theme, it's not a theme park. Its wooden coaster, Timberhawk, which reaches a top speed of 50 mph and a height of 75 feet, is the park's premier thrill ride. There are other thrill rides as well as the usual park suspects such as a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, and a swinging pirate ship.
A single ticket includes admission to the amusement park and the adjacent water park. With a wave pool, lazy river, family raft ride, and a bunch of slides, there are plenty of ways to get wet.
