The Beach Ottumwa

101 Church Street

The Beach Ottumwa is a beautiful indoor / outdoor waterpark located in Ottumwa Iowa. Built in 1992, The facility encompasses 13 acres and over a million gallons of safe family fun.   The Beach Ottumwa opened two new attractions, a enclosed flume curly waterslide and new children’s play area, in the summer of 2011.

The Beach Ottumwa offers exciting, full sized waterpark attractions normally found only at parks with prices 2 or 3 times higher than our low admission price.   We are proud to be the home of the boys and girls OHS Swim Teams, and well as the Ottumwa Swim Club’s Barracuda Swim Team. We have a fully stocked concession stand open in the Summer.

We were extremely disappointed to pay 24.00 to get in and then another 4.00 to rent tubes for the wave pool on Saturday, only to find out the wave pool was out of order for the day. Seems this should have been told to us and every other person that was there BEFORE we paid admission, so we could have made the choice to spend our money elsewhere. So I called today and asked to speak to a manager, who basically said oh someone must have forgot to put the sign up stating the wave pool was out of order for the day. No apology, no offer to make any compensation for the money we wasted. We have been going to The Beach for years. Very very disappointed in your management and your facility for literally ripping us off. It was bad enough you let us pay the admission costs without telling us the wave pool was not working, but then the person renting the tubes didn't bother to tell us either. So your poor ability to manage the facility cost my family 28.00 and apparently, you could care less. We will not be returning, and might I suggest you hire someone a bit more capable to "manage" The Beach.

It is ok, but the restrooms need cleaning from time to time. The tubes aren't free, which is a rip off. You pay for entrance and therefore you expect a full service, but all you get are dirty surroundings and additional services that have to be included in the entrance price.
