Land of Make Believe & Pirate's Cove

Land of Make Believe is an award winning park in the tri-state area that is specifically designed for parent participation with children. The adjacent Pirate's Cove waterpark is included with park admission.

Pirate's Cove is promoted as New Jersey's premier family waterpark. Geared towards families, the park has attractions like a endless action river, wading pool, waterslides, tube rides and a water play structure – Blackbeard's Pirate Fort – topped with 1,000 gallon dumping water bucket.

For more thrills, the park has a cannonbowl tube ride, the Sidewinder half-pipe tube ride and Pirate's Peak featuring a 40-foot tall, 400-foot long slide complex with tube slides. The Black Hole is an enclosed single or double rider tube slide in the dark that is fast and fun.
