In the Dutchess County Spotlight – SplashDown Beach

Love the relaxing waves of the beach, but also the exciting speed of water rides? SplashDown Beach is the perfect place for you and your family this summer.

SplashDown Beach, America’s Biggest Little Water Park™, has everything you need for summer fun! Discover the thrills of the Bullet Bowl, Humunga Half-Pipe, Monster Wave Pool and the new Arctic Plunge Racer, a 5-story racer that launches riders into a head-to-head drag race to the finish line!

If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, head over to the Croc Creek Wavy Lazy River, which is one of the few lazy rivers in the country to have its own wave area. Or, utilize the Coconut Pool, perfect for catching some sun while spending time with your family.

Don’t worry, there’s space designed just for your little ones too! Bob the Builder™ Splash Works™ is great for the kids, with more than 50 interactive features, and Dizzy’s Water Whirler™, the first Bob the Builder™ ride of its kind. There’s also the Shipwreck Lagoon, a themed pirate ship, which is the perfect place for kids to cool off.

New for 2014, Safari Outpost is an up-close and educational encounter with all types of amazing animals with whom we share the planet. Featuring capuchin monkeys, live tigers, giant parrots and huge reptiles, you’ll learn about rare species from all over the world and how they live and play in the wild.
