Some of the slides and rides at WnW are on a par with the Disney parks, with the likes of Der Stuka, The Bomb Bay, Black Hole, Raging Rapids, The Wild One, The Storm (new this year), Hydra Fighter and others offering just as much hair-raising fun, plus more family-oriented rides like Bubba Tub, The Flyer and The Surge. In fact, WnW probably has rather more in the way of out-and-out thrill slides than BB or TL. What it does tend to draw is a more youth-oriented crowd - especially in summer for their Hot Summer Nights evenings - and it has little of the scenery or imagineering that mark out BB and Tl as pure Disney. However, if you like your water parks straight up exciting, you'll probably enjoy WnW. Water Mania in Kissimmee is a more family-oriented offering, but WnW also has some good kiddie areas and junior-sized slides. WnW does draw a crowd in the summer as it is right in the heart of the busy I-Drive area, but then Disney's parks aren't exactly quiet!

Yes, momuv2poohs; there are three toddler play areas at WM, and there is also a lot of shade as there is a big wooded picnic area. Check them out on www.watermania-florida.com
