The towels are available right when you go in, but we suggest that you come in early because they look like they run out really fast.
There’s an area called The Galley where there are arcades and video games,
Upon entering the 40,000 square foot water park area, you’ll immediately feel how huge the area is (looked almost like a gigantic greenhouse). It was also really warm inside and the water felt awesome.
Descriptions are from the official Big Splash Adventure site, you can go check them out if you want more information on these attractions.
The Lost River
There’s a Lazy river that goes all around the park too, so that was cool.
This three story structure brings together every member of the family. Ten platforms and nearly 50 interactive play features will keep all hands on deck.
The Big Slides: Scallywag Scuttle, Pirate’s Plunder, Silverbeard’s Revenge, Jolly Roger Jetty
Scallywag Scuttle is an entirely enclosed body slide. It twists and turns through a winding course before spitting you out in a run-out.
Pirate’s Plunder is a full enclosed body slide. A fast and winding course spits you out in our splash pool.
Silverbeard’s Revenge lets riders accelerate down the slide and are thrust into a large bowl where your inner tube will spiral towards the center. The slides then finishes with a splash down in run-out.
Jolly Roger Jetty lets you ride through seven serpentine curves as you are hurled around the thrilling turns and end in our splash pool!
Splish Splash Pool
The Splish Splash Pool is designated for our junior buccaneers in training. Toddlers have their own attractions designed for them.
Doubloon Lagoon is our outdoor pool with a zero depth entry. Spraying geysers and splashing water elements are included in the lagoon.
Unfortunately this pool was closed when we were there, so we didn’t get to try it. It will definitely be open in the summer.
Lost Treasure Lagoon
Lost Treasure Lagoon is a family friendly leisure pool with a few exciting elements including basketball goals, lily pads, and spinning vortex.
Palm Cove is a tropical oasis for our adult guests only. Mom and Dad can relax in the hot tub where the water is roughly 99-101 degrees.
It’s pretty awesome that they have an adults-only pool, although it’s pretty open and you can pretty much see your kids playing at the other play areas, but maybe that’s a good thing too…
Our Final Thoughts
We’ve been to a lot of indoor water parks, and one thing I always look for is how many lifeguards they’ve got. This place seemed a little lacking when we were there, at least compared to a lot of water parks we go to. You might want to watch your kids a little closer to be sure.
All in all, it was still a great experience. Great indoor water fun especially for the kids. Areas to chill for the adults (including an upper platform with beach chairs and tables), lots of lockers for storage, and life vests were provided.
On weekends as probably expected, the place gets pretty packed and crowded, but according to their website, only a limited number of day passes are admitted each day. On weekdays though, it was pretty empty. Weekdays would be a great time to visit if you don’t want it too crowded.
