[NORTH CHARLESTON] -- Whirlin’ Waters and your Charleston County Parks welcome people with special needs, their families, caregivers and friends to a unique night at the waterpark! On Saturday, Aug. 9, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark will open its gates in the evening for these guests to enjoy. This is the second Special Needs Swim Night offered this year, after a very successful event debut in June.

Special Needs Swim Night will take place after the waterpark is closed to the general public, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Whirlin’ Waters’ water attractions will then be available until 8:30 p.m.

Located in North Charleston at Wannamaker County Park, Whirlin’ Waters is the largest waterpark in the Charleston area and offers attractions for all ages. Whirlin’ Waters is home to Otter Bay kiddie pool area, The Big Splash Tree House, Lily Pad Lagoon toddler play area, Rollin’ River lazy river, the large Big Kahuna pool, Tubular Twister slide complex, and the 347-foot-tall Riptide Run racer slide. Some attractions have minimum height restrictions to participate.

Lifeguards will be on duty throughout the evening. Admission to Special Needs Swim Night is $9 per person attending. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the waterpark. In case of rain, Special Needs Swim Night will be rescheduled for Saturday, Aug. 16. To purchase advance tickets for Special Needs Swim Night, visit or call 843-795-4386.

Another event hosted by the Charleston County Parks for people with special needs will be the Special Needs Prom, held August 22 at Bees Landing Recreation Center. For more information on these programs, call 843-795-4386.

In addition to Special Needs Swim Night, Whirlin’ Water Adventure Waterpark is available for private party rentals after hours, a great option for corporate functions and other large groups seeking entertainment and summertime fun. The park also features Luau Landing, a private rental grassy picnic area specifically designed for group use.
