Rides[edit]

You must be under 250 lbs to ride rides other than the lazy river and the wave pool. Height requirements may apply for each attraction.

Ocean In Motion Wave Pool[edit]

A 20,000-square-foot (1,900 m2) Ocean In Motion.

Lazy River[edit]

A 3 mph (4.8 km/h) trip around the park. Its 1,200 feet (370 m) with single or double inner tubes.

Bubble Bay[edit]

A 7,000-foot (2,100 m) leisure pool with water depths from six to eighteen inches. It has three cascading water umbrellas and numerous bubble jets around the edges.

Saturation Station[edit]

A huge children's area. Has a huge volcano, three slides for small children and gallons of splashing, spraying water.

Turbo Twisters[edit]

A 10 story high climb to the top of the world's tallest tubular slide complex, the Turbo Twisters. Each of the three flumes in the complex is more than 350 feet (110 m) long equaling more than 1,300 feet (400 m).

Interestingly the third slide, on the left at the top of the platform, has remained closed for quite sometime. The water still flows and the landing is intact. The landing for this slide is also notably gated off and not convenient to access by the parks modern walk ways.

Riptide Rockets[edit]

A Two side-by-side speed slides. Halfway up the climb to Turbo Twisters, these slides are a heart-racing drop including hills to send you nearly airborne.

Arooba Tooba[edit]

A toilet bowl shaped ride takes riders down an enclosed flume and shoots them out into a large bowl-funnel where they will whirl and swirl until making their final splash through the center drop.

Racin' River[edit]

A 250-foot (76 m) peanut-shaped river flowing at 10 mph (16 km/h).

Super Chute[edit]

A 20-foot (6.1 m) long enclosed tube with four-foot vertical drop into eight feet of water.

Snake Mountain[edit]

Three serpentine inner tube slides. The Python has gradual curves that make it perfect for parents riding with small children. The Water Moccasin is a middle speed run that's also great for parents with small children. The King Cobra is the fastest of the rides on Snake Mountain.

Thunderbolts[edit]

Two parallel body slides. A smaller (and tamer) version of Riptide Rockets.

Night Flight[edit]

Two black enclosed thinner tube slides featuring sharp curves in dark, foggy tunnels.
