Special Note:

The amusement park used to be known as Enchanted Village. Now the combined water park and amusement park is known as Wild Waves. Also, Six Flags used to own and operate the property, but sold it in 2007. Another company now runs the park.

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.
