Cool fun awaits Lowcountry residents and visitors at Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s three waterparks - Splash Zone, Splash Island and Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark! All three area waterparks are now open every day through mid-August.
Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark is located in North Charleston at Wannamaker County Park. The largest waterpark in the Charleston area, Whirlin’ Waters features unique activities for all ages – from curious little ones to thrill-seeking adults. Children enjoy the Otter Bay pool area and The Big Splash Tree House featuring racer slides, sprays, tons of interactive play elements and a giant bucket that dumps 1,000 gallons of water. Lily Pad Lagoon, a toddler play area, also provides hours of fun with a shallow pool and three different spray geysers. Adults can unwind while drifting down Rollin’ River, a lazy river hosting 870 feet of relaxation. The Big Kahuna wave pool is a family favorite with 27,000 square feet of wave action. Looking for thrills? The slides of Riptide Run and the Tubular Twister are guaranteed to provide a rush of excitement.
Splash Zone, located within James Island County Park, brings the Caribbean to Charleston with island-style play structures and slides. Spend the day coasting down the two 200-foot slides or floating endlessly on the lazy river. Splash Island at Mount Pleasant Palmetto Islands County Park is tucked deep within tropical vegetation and provides hours of fun and recreation for toddlers to pre-teenage children. Spend a fun-filled day enjoying more slides, sprays, geysers, waterfalls and take an energizing whirl in the Cyclone, an awesome ten-minute water ride.
Each waterpark also offers a full range of amenities including concessions, lockers for securing items, lounge chairs, showers and restrooms. Each park is staffed with trained lifeguards to provide a safe experience.
Waterpark hours of operation are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Waterpark season passes are available for purchase, and visitors will find special admission rates on the Extra Value Days – Military Mondays, Two For Tuesdays, and Tropical Thursdays (Tropical Thursdays at Whirlin’ Waters only).
