Water Park Fast Facts


  • The waves are run on a ten minutes on -- ten minutes off cycle. 
  • The waterslide is a fast one with a "V" shaped bottom. This is why parents cannot go down with their child as their speed and weight may break their child's legs. 
  • The steam and sauna are open for adult use whenever the pools are in use. 
  • The lap pool is kept cooler than the wave pool for people looking to work out.

Phone 786-1740 if you need more information about the Water Park!
