The park is now open! The Mid-Atlantic's largest water park is a wet and wild choice for a gnarly family vacation getaway.

Voted one of America's best water parks by the Travel Channel, it's the sister park of Busch Gardens Williamsburg, which is just down the road.

Some people like to plan a vacation combining both parks, some prefer just to get wet. Whatever your choice, you'll love the park's '50's & '60's "Kowabunga" surf theme, 35 "super-soakin'" water rides and slides, and 82 degree heated pools on cooler days.

The park is open the beginning of May through the first week in September. I've listed the full summer hours and operating schedule below.

New for 2014 - "Colossal Curl" - A mega slide that promises to give the words "hang ten" a whole new meaning. Another relatively new ride is "Vanish Point," a 75-foot tower with two wave paths, including a 300 foot speed slide where you drop straight down. Look below for an official You Tube video of the upcoming slide.


Here's just a sample of the other rides:

  • Rock 'n' Roll Island - features three body slides, a "lazy" river, and a slide for "Little Boppers," all set to rockin' music from the 50's and 60's
  • Big Daddy Falls - a family ride with a tunnel, water curtain, "cannon blasters," and two splash pools
  • Hubba-Hubba Highway - Fast-moving lazy river with interactive water features

  • Lemon Drop - Bright yellow slides that shoot you airborne before plunging you into the pool
  • Nitro Racer - a mad race to the finish on plastic mats against six other guests
  • Rampage - a tobaggon slide dropping you 75 feet at a 60 degree angle
  • Surfer's Bay - Virginia's largest wave-pool with four foot waves


Ready to get wet? There's more...

  1. Three Things I'll Do Next Time I Fly

    Jul 20, 14 09:40 PM

    After flying to 40 countries I thought I'd learned it all about air travel. But as I sat on the plane last night returning from a trip to the West coast I suddenly realized three things I'll do next time I fly. 1) Bring bleach wipes: Yep, I'd brought Wet Wipes to clean off my seat area, having learned long ago that airplane seat armrests, tray tables, and seat pockets are teeming with bacteria. But after all the funky germs we keep hearing about in the news (e.g., MRSA) and sitting there thinking how many people had probably touched that seat area since the last good scrubbing, I wish I'd brought bleach wipes. Next time.
    2) Bring a little vial of "odor protector": Can't believe this has never happened to me before, but the guy next to me absolutely reeked of mold, having obviously left his clothes in the washing machine for a week. How'd you like to sit next to that for five hours? My sister-in-law likes to travel with a dab of peppermint oil or a little Vicks Vapor rub under her nose when she flies. Now I know why. So next time, I'm bringing a little vial of my favorite perfume as a little odor defense if I need it.
    3) Fly Virgin: One word comes to mind after flying Virgin America for the first time. "Wow." Just "wow." They make flying fun again! Everything, from the music they play at check-in, to the friendly staff and flight attendants (who all seem to love their jobs compared to staff on other airlines who often seem basically fed-up and sometimes curt) to their hilarious and brilliant safety video, to the fact that my luggage was waiting for me in Baggage Check BEFORE I even got down there, they made me a Virgin believer!
