Waterpark description: Set in a tropical Polynesian atmosphere, Splash Lagoon features today’s state-of-the-art rides. These include nine slides; the Adventure Bay children’s activity pool; the interactive five-story Tiki Tree House play structure, topped with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket; a lazy river; three whirlpools; and a water sports pool. Additionally, a 10,000-square-foot wave pool is set to open soon.
The “it” factor: Here it’s
all about family-focused leisure time. Besides more than an acre of
waterpark space, the complex also includes Lazer Tag; the Treasure
Island Arcade, featuring more than 110 state-of-the-art and classic
games; and a 3,000-square-foot private party room, available for
birthday parties or group outings. Beyond just fun, Splash Lagoon
operators have committed to the concept of edu-tainment. One
example is the Family Activity Center, where visitors of all ages
can create customized T-shirts and sand art.
Today’s family finances are tighter than ever and guests
can choose from a range of accommodations, with options to fit
almost any budget. Splash Lagoon hotels include family- friendly
