One of New England's most popular waterparks is located in the scenic White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Whale's Tale Waterpark is a clean, family oriented park offering a large wave pool, relaxing lazy river, and a large water play structure. The park's water slide collection is varied with speed slides, serpentine body slides, and exciting tube rides.
Some of the attractions to be enjoyed include the Banzai Pipeline a single or double rider tube ride featuring a steep drop that takes riders up a near vertical wall for a moment of weightlessness and again into a freefall, where you'll surmount a surprise hump just before the splashdown pool. Eye of the Storm is a high-speed body slide featuring a steep descent into a giant bowl before you swirl round and round until you fall through the hole in the bottom. For more thrills you can ride The Plunge, side-by-side body slides where you can reach speeds of up to 40 miles-per-hour or Poseidon's Voyage a speed slide that begins with you standing in a capsule on a trap door floor!
Children will love to explore Shipwreck Island. This large multi-level, water play structure has interactive water features, geysers, multiple water slides, and is topped with a giant bucket that soaks everyone within reach every few minutes. For toddlers and young children Whale Harbor is an area reserved exclusively for them.
At the center of the park is a large wave pool where you can ride the waves on tubes. For relaxing the park has a gentle flowing lazy river and a few hot tubs to soak in.
