Thrilling & Relaxing Water Fun 

Sandcastle is home to exciting water slide attractions for thrill-seekers, families and those just looking to float and relax. 

Partner up for a trip on Dragon’s Den or the Blue Tubaluba, a 450-foot slide featuring waterfalls and spots of total darkness. Land in three different “sky ponds” on one slide at Cliffhangers. And for an adrenaline rush, be sure to stop by the Lightning Express, a 60-foot high double dip slide, or The Monster, a 85-foot free-fall speed slide hitting speeds up to 25 miles per hour. 

The waterpark also features three different pool areas. Grab a raft and float down the Lazy River. The Mon-Tsunami Wave Pool is a 20,000 square foot pool generating ocean-like waves. Or sit back and enjoy the sounds of a waterfall at the Mushroom Pool. 

Children under 54” can spend time at the Tad Pool, a two-foot deep area with slides designed specifically for kids to conquer their first ride on a slide.
