Rides/Attractions[edit]

Water Rides[edit]

Blackbeard's Revenge[edit]

Blackbeard's Revenge is a dark-tunnel slide ride in an inflatable 3-person boat. This is a 1 to 3 person ride.

Panama Jacks'[edit]

Panama Jacks' is a slide ride much like Blackbeard's Revenge, but has three tunnels: The Canyon, The Cave, and The Cavern. These rides require single or double tubes as a vehicle.

Adventure Mountain[edit]

Speed through 2 sloping slaloms and splash down into a cool pool of water. (Height requirement:42")

Pelican's Drift (Lazy River)[edit]

Much like a lazy river, this river goes around the Castaway Bay.

Castaway Bay[edit]

A large themed play structure with 4 slides for the children. Water shooting nozzles, climbing nets and a bucket that has the Daytona Lagoon logo that dumps 1,000 gallons of water every 2 minutes.

The Wave Pool[edit]

500,000 gallons of water that goes into a wave every couple of minutes.

Kraken's Conquest[edit]

Dry Attractions[edit]

Grand Prix Go-Kart Raceway[edit]

Daytona Lagoon has one multi-level go-kart track. The track has a unique design with it starting on the second floor of the facility overlooking the park's two 9-hole miniature golf courses. Go-kart drivers must be 56 inches (1,400 mm) tall. Double-seat drivers must have a valid driver's license (non-restricted) to drive a double-seater. Double-seat passenger must be at least 36 inches (910 mm) tall to ride.

The Phoenix[edit]

The Phoenix is much like boat rides where it goes back and forth at 100 feet (30 m), but however it is currently out of order.

18 Holes of Mini-Golf[edit]

Two 9-hole miniature golf intertwine with Grand Prix Go-Kart Raceway and the waterpark. This park once had three 9-hole miniature golf courses but one was removed in early 2010 to make space for an arcade expansion that included more arcade games and indoor bowling lanes.

Lazer Runner Lazer Tag[edit]

See lazer tag.

Rock Wall[edit]

A 25-foot-tall (7.6 m) rock wall with timer.

Carousel[edit]

A 1972 Theel Carousel that was formerly located on the Daytona Beach Boardwalk. As of January 2011, this ride was transferred to another location at Speed Park Motorsports in Daytona Beach.

Arcade[edit]

The park has a large arcade that houses over 130 arcade games, prize vending games, ticket redemption games, the Rock Wall, Carousel and entrance to Laser Tag.

Sandblaster roller coaster[edit]

On August 2, 2013, the first roller coaster in the history of the Daytona Beach Boardwalk opened. The ride takes the riders 85 feet in the air over more than a half-mile of track. The coaster was bought to the 40-year-old ride from a closed amusement park in Delaware in 2012.
