So today we decided to use the tickets for hawaiian waters adventure park that we had left over from when Doan’s sister came to visit. I was really excited about it…because water slides pretty much raised me. Let me explain. From 4th grade until about 8th grade Wet n Wild was my baby sitter during the summer. My mom would drop me off before she went to work, and someone would pick me up at 7pm that night. My parents got as much use out of that season pass as you could get it.
It’s always been my thing though…roller coasters, water slides, fun and fast…I love it. So I’ve been excited for a couple days now. Finally we’re there! We walk in and look around and it’s pretty nice. Very tropical…not crowded at all…but they’re only open from 12:00pm until 3:30pm. What’s with that bullshit. 3 1/2 hours to ride slides…horrible. Well there is a reason for that.
There are only 6 real rides. Do I seem spoiled? 6 rides might be enough for you guys but that’s no where near enough for me. And get this…they only open half of them every 30 minutes. So 3 are open for 30 minutes…then they close those 3 and open up the other 3. It’s retarded. It’s obviously so they don’t have to hire more lifeguards…but seriously…what do they really do. We had a 450 pound hawaiian guy as our lifeguard for the only good ride at the park. Is he going to dive in and save my ass? I don’t think so.
Anyway…it was fun…but only for about an hour. When you have to be told…sorry we’re closing this ride for 30 minutes…and then you have to walk back down the hill…get a different raft…and walk back up…then wait for the 450 pound hawaiian lifeguard to make it up to the top to turn on the ride. You’d get pissed too. It was horrible. I mean our of the 6 rides 2 of them we went on multiple times. So 3 hours of 2 rides over and over again.
The only good thing about this park…you have to pay extra to ride. They have one of those fake waves that you can surf…which is pretty bad ass…i’d love to have one of this at my house. But to pay 10 bones to ride…it’s not worth it. Especially just to have the local lifeguard and his friends…laugh at you cause you’re not a good surfer.
Tickets were like 30 bones each…and then i get half the rides. STUPID…if you ever come to honolulu…don’t waste your money. They’ve ruined my dream. I really need to go to Cali or back to Texas and go to a good water park this summer so I can get the fun back. Cause right now…it’s fucking gone. Goodbye fun…I’ll miss you.
