Wings & Waves is hard to miss since a massive Boeing 747 aircraft sits atop the building and several slides begin their descent from within the airplane. This makes it unique since it's the only waterpark in the entire country where you can slide out of a real airplane.
Wings & Waves is a climate controlled indoor waterpark where natural gas heaters keep the water at a comfortable 84 degrees. Attractions here include ten waterslides, four of which originate from within the rooftop Boeing 747. Other activities include a 91,000-gallon wave pool, interactive water play structure with a 300-gallon tipping water bucket, toddler area with bubblers, fountains and tot sized slides and a leisure pool with spa.
Wings & Waves waterpark is located next door to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum with one of the greatest collections of aircraft and space artifacts in the world. The waterpark was formerly called Evergreen Wings & Waves, but is now under new ownership and the name was changed.
