What to Expect at Turtle Cove Water Park

At the heart of the park during the warmer months is the Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center, sprawling over 1,400 square feet. The aquatic center is a haven for water enthusiasts, featuring a host of attractions:

  • Waterslides: Two giant slides provide thrilling drops into the cool water below.
  • Lazy River: Drift lazily along the gentle currents of the lazy river—perfect for all ages.
  • 300-Gallon Dumping Bucket: Experience the excitement of the dumping bucket, which periodically releases a cascade of water over delighted swimmers.
  • Zero-depth Entry Pool: Ideal for the smallest visitors, this pool includes lap lanes and is accessible without steps.

During our recent visit, the aquatic playground was a hit with the kids, boasting various fountains, mini water slides, and climbing bridges. The highlight was undoubtedly the dumping bucket, drenching everyone in its vicinity and providing endless laughter.

Additional Features

For older children and adults, the larger waterslides offer a more exhilarating experience, emptying out into the pool or flowing directly into the lazy river for continued fun. Despite the queues, these slides are worth the wait.
