About this activity

If you want to make a SPLASH on your family day out, there's not reason you can't do it in style. And what better style to do it in , than at Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole with it's Old West style!

This family swimming center offers a TON of water fun, with more than an acre of flumes, slides, sprays, showers, and interactive play features perfect for the whole family. And don't miss that Old West that is recreated in the area!

Kids can head off in covered wagons, or float on rattlesnakes, and even dash through showers that are tipped from water-filled ore carts!

The main focus of Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole, is Pete's Peak. This craggy mountain is dotted with boarded up, old mine tunnels and shafts. The twin gang slides - Little Pete and Big Pete - just up from that grand mountain. It's here that those little ones will certainly get a thrill...again...and again....and again!

The main attractions at Water Mine are designed for those water lovers in elementary school, but there really is something for everyone. Tenderfoot Pond has pint-sized slides and those fun bubblers, which gives toddlers the perfect place for water play.

Teenagers have their own fun, with water volleyball, and everyone can experience the fun of floating down Rattlesnake River on a tube!

Great family fun in Virginia, where you certainly will be having a very COOL family day out!
