What is there to do?

Surf's UP! On those warm Arizona days, we know what the kids want to do - cool down! Great thing Big Surf is ready and waiting to entertain and cool off the entire family!

This 20 acre center in Tempe, Arizona, has a host of rides and attractions to entertain the whole family - of any age! For all ages there are attractions like the very WAVY Waikiki Beach Wave Pool, with 2.5 million gallons of water - THE place to be on those hot summer days! There are also rafts and boogie boards available to rent!

Those little kids will love the very tropical sounding Bora Bora Bay, with the fun tipping tree frogs. Ribbit Ribbit! All those little climbing monkeys in the family will love it!

For those kids under 48" Otter Slides are your place to be, with smaller slides dropping down into the tropical bay, and for those over 48" - get ready for the storm! Hurricane Slides are for all those little daredevils that want to plunge down one of the 3 body slides - weeeeee!

Want something...SCARY! Kids - meet The Black Hole! Not for the weak of heart, you will be enjoying your ride on a tube into a very DARK and enclosed slide! We told you it was scary!

From Tornado Twisters to the twists and turns down the White serpentine Slide, you certainly won't be short of thrills at Big Surf. Of course, there are more of the relaxing attractions like Captain Cook's Landing which is PERFECT for those toddlers in the family - especially if they are going to get excited about playing with a turtle, alligator, and even a seal (Don't worry parents - they are only play!).

Surf’s Up at Big Surf!
