Great beach like experience in a safe environment kids can swim without worrying about safety. Waves comea and go on a regular interval and quiet like a natural wave.
There are also other activities around valley waves which you can do. Really nice place wind down and enjoy. Entrance fee for weekend is quiet pricy compared to during the week. Also you can with book for a hotel at Sun City and you get free access to Valley of Waves or you can book as a day Visitor. Once inside ask where to go, the place is big and directions are not always visible

Amazing place and spent a lot of time there as usually. We go every couple of year from Ireland (originally from SA).

Lazy Rapids in good condition and so are most of the slides. Unfortunately Nobles Decent was closed yet again for the third holiday in a row. Really need to fix that slide properly.

Wave pool was also very dirty full of hair, dirt and insects but still worth it for some body surfing. Used to enjoy a craft beer from Brew Monkey. It is still there but don't brew their own beers anymore. They should maybe consider selling some local beers like the ones from the dam at Rustenburg.

It was the first time that my family and I visited Sun City and the Valley of Waves.
It will definitely not be the last one.
We spent two days, a Thursday and a Friday.
Thursday was simply perfect as the amount of people was minimal, there were no queues at any of the water slides. Friday was busier but still acceptable.
The place was clean and tidy, the lockers were working perfectly. We found good spots both days under some big umbrellas in the sandy beach.
The kids had such a wonderful time!

The obtrusive loud doef-doef music spoiled everything! Auditory sensory overload that you can’t escape. Extremely negative.

A great place to spend a day. The wave pool is great fun, and when you want to calm down there is the lazy river. There are a couple of places to eat, and aslo some water slides and zip lines.
Overall a great place to visit

I remember this place to be great, Clean and nice and everything working and a experience.

on my last visit, Feb 2023, i found this place is really being neglected and run down,

With the high prices you pay to stay and enter here you expect the place to be well kept, but its not.

The wave pool the floors are all pealing and looks terrible, the Water is dirty with dirt floating all over,

The kids pool (slides) are filthy and the water smells terrible, i wont recommend any child to swim there.

the Lazy River it Dirty and green, the Rocks are full of bubble gum stuck to it

The grounds are dirty, people just throw thir Dirt and its not being picket up.

Everything is extremely overpriced and no value for money. Full of rules, can't even take own tap-water or small body-board inside. Can't use own inflatable tubes in wave pool. Rough course sand all over that gets extremely hot in sun. Not enough tubes available for everyone, have to wait in long queues to get a tube for the slides. R50 for a smoothie!
