Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

New to water rockets

My name is Art Applewhite

I live in Kerrville, Texas.
I'm new to water rockets. I do a lot of model rockets but with burn bans in most Texas counties I need another way to fly rockets that won't set the field on fire. :)

I have the same problem in California. With all the wildfires we have here, flying a pyro rocket is out of the question.

The problem with any rocket, though, including water rockets, is that it's hard to find any open space without trees that can catch your rocket, if you live in an urban area.
