One of seven themed areas at Idlewild & SoakZone is a family waterpark with a dozen attractions, a wave pool, a lazy river, and more for all ages.
Children will find Captain Kidd's Adventure Gallery with six waterslides and dozens of interactive spray features. Also for youngsters, Little Squirts is a children's pool and water fun area.
For more thrills, SoakZone also offers exciting waterslides, family rides, and tube slides. Try racing your friends on the four-lane Hydro Racers racing mat slides. Board a raft with a friend and barrel down the Pipeline Plunge or try the twisting Serpentine Slides or speedy Shotgun Slides.
Go for a dip in the Wowabunga Family Wave Pool where you can "catch a wave" in the 280,600-gallon pool that generates waves at timed intervals, allowing swimmers to ride the tide.
Another family favorite is Float Away Bay, a 185,309-gallon, 15-foot wide endless river that spans 603 linear feet, about the length of two football fields. Designed for families with young children, the lazy river is only two feet, four inches deep has a large zero-depth entry zone and has uniquely designed kid-sized tubes along with adult tubes, so families can play together.
