A few weeks ago we were given passes to the Wings and Waves Waterpark at the Evergreen Air and Space Museum (home of the Spruce Goose) in McMinnville, Oregon – practically in our backyard.
Even though we only live about 5 miles away from the Wings and Waves Waterpark, I had never been before, and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I knew that the waterpark was infamous for its water slides that spiraled down from the top of a 747, but other than that I didn’t know what exactly it offered.
I chose to sit the swimming out and opted to photograph the kids. The Wings and Waves Waterpark is an all indoor and all-season waterpark that actually has 10 large water slides, a wave pool, and a playground filled with water fun.
There are many chairs and seated areas, large changing and showers rooms, and lockers that you can rent to store your belonging in (though I saw many people set their items on a table or nearby chair as well. )
Upstairs there is a cafe that offers the usual quick cuisine (hot dogs, chicken strips, popcorn, etc.)
Also upstairs there is a hands on space exhibit area that the kids can be interactive with and learn while having fun when they take aquatic break.
We ended up spending the better part of a day at the Wings and Waves Waterpark and actually did not visit the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum portion until another day (I’ll share about that trip soon!)
The Wings and Waves Waterpark admission prices:
$33.00 for visitors over 47 inches
$20.00 for visitors under 47 inches
Kids 3 and under are free. The prices are good for the entire day, so you can leave and come back later in the day for a second dip. 😉
The Wings and Waves Waterpark is located right off of Highway 18 in McMinnville and is only 38 miles from Portland.
