Daytona Lagoon is a waterpark and family entertainment center located in Daytona Beach, which is owned by a subsidiary of national amusement park operator United Parks.[1] Daytona Lagoon is open year-round for its dry attractions, while its waterpark operates from March through September. The park consists of 12 rides and an 18-hole miniature golf course.[2]

History[edit]

According to the website, it opened in March 2005.[3]

On August 20, 2016, the Volusia County Council approved a lease, enabling a United Parks subsidiary to purchase Daytona Lagoon from DBWP, LLC. The acquisition closed on October 19, 2015.[4] In acquiring Daytona Lagoon, the company pledged to invest more than $2 million over two years to upgrade the waterpark with an overall facelift, new attractions, a broader food selection, and improved amenities.[5]
