When it debuted in 1992, it was originally named Hurricane Reef. In 1999, an expansion occurred to the water park and the attractions received new names and park was changed to WaterWorks.
It has two sections, the Northside which was formerly known as Hurricane Reef, and Southside which is the newer section of WaterWorks. The rides that WaterWorks had as Hurricane Reef in the mid-1990s are all located in front of the Rebel Yell roller coaster; the newer rides are behind the Rebel Yell and are accessible by walking under the Rebel Yell on a walkway between Baja Bends and Shoot the Curl.
