SPLASH! What's that sound? Yep - it's those families making a SPLASH at Rapids Water Park in South Florida. What better way to cool off in summer!?
Rapids Water Park is filled with water fun activities for the entire family, so whether it's lazy rivers or thrilling slides, there is something for everyone!
Want to know the categories for the rides? Well, they have the BIGGEST thrill rides, then the COOLEST thrill rides, and then the WETTEST thrill rides...which one will you pick first!?
Let's start with the BIGGEST!
If you head some screams, you might just be close to Big Thunder, where you will take a sharp turn through a very dark tunnel before heading down a 45 degree drop on your multi-person raft (a true family experience!)
Black Thunder gives you twists and turns in a dark vortex tunnel, and the Riptide Raftin is the one family ride in the entire WORLD that sends four people rocketing through a HUGE 10 foot wide flume of twists, turns and banks...all before a HUGE splashdown. FUN!
Then we have the COOLEST thrill rides! Body Blasters lets you blast through 1,000 feet of enclosed flume with no mats, no tubes - just YOU!
Pirate Plunge is certainly not for the faint hearted, where you can feel the earth drop right out from under your feet! Old Yellar gives you four different versions of slides to try, but you might want to travel in the dark, endure multiple spins or try that splash drop landing - just some of the adventures the other rides give you!
Of course, Rapids Water Park has a host of other water activities for the whole family, from wave pools, to fun splash areas and lots of interactive experiences.
