Be sure to grab a spot in the shade… it’s important. We really enjoy the Storm Slides and also the Shark Tank, so we grab shady spots by Typhoon Tilly’s, which is near those attractions and also has the most amazing Chicken Caesar Salad in the world! Also great french fries! To get to it, HEAD TO THE RIGHT as you enter and come down the hill…
If you have very tiny kids who will want to be at Ketchakiddie Creek, the little kids’ area, grab a shady spot at that end of the park. To get there, HEAD TO THE LEFT as you enter and head down the hill!
When you need to navigate the park, and you don;t want to carry a sopping wet map, just get in the lazy river… but remember the entrance that is near your chairs! You can get in and get out fo the lazy river as you get next tot he slides you want to try!
Also, when the Big Waves are going on, you will hear the steam horm and everyone in the wave pool will scream! It’s hilarious! So much fun… get over to the wave pool right away and hop in!
Be sure to try all the slides… and the new Crush & Gusher, which is a water coaster that I have never had the pleasure of experiencing!!!
As for towels and lockers and all that jazz… they are all available at the top of the hill on the right as you enter the park. Put everything in the locker, except for a small amount of cash and a credit card. You can rent the towels and leave your suntan lotion, coverups, sandals, etc. at the chair. At the shop, they sell little waterproof cases you wear around your neck… totally slide-proof, so put your $$$ in it and you are all set for the day!
Water shoes or flip-flops are a must here, since the sidewalks can be rough.
And finally, watch out for the wedgie you are guaranteed to get on the Humunga Kowabunga!!!
