Summer is here and we are planning on enjoying every moment we can. One of our favorite places to play in the water is Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights. With nine acres of water activities, it is a great place to cool off and relax for the day. Red Oaks Waterpark will be open until August 18th for the 2023 season.
Red Oaks Waterpark offers a wide variety of attractions to appeal to the whole family. From a family splash pad to the high thrills Triple Turn Waterslides, everyone will find something to enjoy.
Guests of all ages will love the wave pool at Red Oaks. The 550,000 gallon pool has a zero-depth entry, providing barrier free access as well as a gradual increase in water depth. This is perfect for families with smaller children that want to hang out in more shallow waters. The max depth of the pool is 8 feet. The pool is heated to 80 degrees making it the perfect place to play, even when the temperature isn’t blistering hot.
Innertubes are also available to guests, free of charge, so they can enjoy the wave pool on top of the waves. The wave pool runs in cycles, 10 minutes of waves then 10 minutes without waves.
Triple Turn Waterslides
Thrill seekers will love the three water slides available at this waterpark. Located behind the wave pool, these three slides have been entertaining families for decades. Guests must be at least 43 inches tall to ride these slides.
New Children’s Splash Pad in 2021
This newer attraction features 52 interactive water activities, including a water play climber with slides and a mini dumping bucket (about 40 gallons). The zero-depth splash pad offers 160 ’x 105’ of play area with a new adjacent shade structure.
If you are looking for a more laid back adventure, check out the River Ride. This heated pool takes visitors on a slow adventure through several water features. Visitors must use a tube while in the water.
Red Oaks Waterpark Amenities
The waterpark offers locker rentals, concessions, showers, dryers, life jackets (for younger guests) and plenty of picnic tables (arrive early to get one).
