About Water Country

Water Country has been providing wholesome family fun for over 30 years as a NH landmark and remains the largest, cleanest, safest and friendliest water park in New England. A summer tradition for most families, a visit here is a must for families with attractions for young and old. Your child can conquer his or her first water slide at Big Ollie and your teens will love Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror. The whole family will love the two family attractions or cruising around the Adventure River or wave pool. Water Country offers families the chance to create forever memories at an affordable price.
