The Lap/Activity Pool at The Waterpark

Phase 1 of The Waterpark reopening is June 14 through July 3. If you’re planning a visit to The Waterpark during Phase 1, please read through our FAQ to learn more about what to expect and what to bring with you.


Make a Splash

It’s home to our Activity Pool Feature and our lap pool. It is a favorite destination for those kids who are not yet 48″ and tall enough to ride the big slides. 

The recently added Activity Pool Feature showcases a structure 30 feet high with 2 slides and water falling everywhere. Prepare to get splashed!

The Lap Pool is 25-meters and goes up to 5’3″ deep. It is the largest body of water within The Waterpark!
