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

Since our founding in 2003, we've become 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.


Hello Everyone. It is that time of year again. Time to approve changes to the competition rules for the new year.

A summer project

This boat and I have quite a history. I think it is over 22yrs old. We're gonna write a new chapter this summer.

Well, best way to say it, we left on vacation in June and ended up staying gone all summer. We noticed the leaves changing and figured it was time to head home.

That sounds like a great time! But it would be impossible for us to go away that long because we would miss our rocket building and launching adventures!

Well our trip started off like this- "Hey honey, want to go to Sequoia NP (~1,600 miles away) to teach a water rocket class"?
