Ocean Breeze Water Park...
for Less!

Water, water, everywhere! And what a blast! The Ocean Breeze Water Park is the hottest (or coolest, depending on how you look at it) place to go in Virginia Beach.

Just 1.5 miles from the waterfront, it's the only water park in Virginia Beach. So what's it like? How does 16 water slides, a 1 million-gallon Runaway Bay wave pool, a Buccaneer Bay children's area, West Indies BBQ, Island Trader Gift Shop, and Shipwreck Island Arcade sound?

Look below for links to coupons and tips for saving up to $16 per ticket...

Our fave spot: the Runaway Bay Wave Pool, which generates boogie-board worthy waves from time to time. When you hear Queen's "We Will Rock You" you'd better run to the Wave Pool--that means they're about to start making waves.

A few tips:

  • Don't forget the sunblock!
  • Be prepared for a workout! You have to climb lots of stairs to reach the slides on most of the rides.
  • Although you could probably take a chance and just leave your clothes on a chair (not money, of course) they offer convenient lockers where you can stash your stuff all day. Lockers are $7 for the day, but you get back $2 after you return the key, so they really only cost $5. We were able to stuff four people's worth of stuff into one locker. The keys are strung on elastic bands that you can wear safely on your arm.
  • For little ones and those who are a little unsure of their swimming ability, they offer life vests. Kids rides include a fun Pirate Ship, so there's something for the whole family.
  • Pass on the inner tube rental. It costs $7 for a two-person inner tube, but since you can only use it in the Wave Pool, it's not really worth it.

Directions to Ocean Breeze Water Park 

The park is conveniently located near the Virginia Beach boardwalk, next to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. You can take the other Wave" - The Virginia Beach Trolley" - to get there from the boardwalk area.

Just take the Route 31 Museum Express (the yellow line) which runs from the south end of the Boardwalk and ends at the Virginia Beach KOA campground.

If you want to drive to there, here is a Google map
