The beautiful city of Waycross, Georgia, near the Atlantic Coast is not far from several water parks that can easily beat the summer heat. The next time you feel like taking a dip, head out to one of these wonderful waterparks.
Jekyll Island is home to both family fun locales and protected wildlife ecosystems. The island hosts the Summer Waves Water Park, which is fun for parents and kids. Seven attractions offer thrills like a wave pool, the 5-story Pirate’s Passage slide, and Turtle Creek Lazy River. Reserve a cabana for extra comfort in the shade and get your own personal water cooler for keeping your beverages frosty.
The animal-filled park in Valdosta has rides, adventures, and gators. Cross Gator Bridge hanging over a huge alligator pool, or pet one at Alligator Alley. When the heat gets too much, head to Splash Island Waterpark. Named one of the Top 30 Water Parks in the Country, Splash Island is home to towering waterslides, the 20,000-square-foot Catch-A-Wave Bay Wave Pool, and the relaxing Paradise River.
Splash in the ’Boro in Statesboro focuses on pools, pools, pools. There are leisure pools, kiddie pools, and the new 340,000-gallon wave pool with adjacent pavilion. For those looking to kick back and relax, the lazy river is open for easy drifting. If you’re interested in a thrill, Flow Rider, the only ride of its kind in Georgia, tests your surfing skills on a perfect, unending wave.
There are plenty of options for keeping cool this summer. If you want to look cool all summer long, you’ll want to check out our great selection of new Ford vehicles at Robbie Roberson.
