2. Big Surf Water Park
This watery attraction has plenty of rafts, boogie boards and surf boards to enjoy, and is American’s original wave pool, containing 2.5 million gallons of water. Safety is the number one priority here, with children less than 48 ins in height required to wear a complimentary life vest and all kids under eight required to be accompanied by an adult. The lifeguards, too, are very attentive. There are some awesome slides to be had, such as the spine tingling Hurricane and Black Hole. Rent a raft for the family and float along at your own pace for the day.
