A country full of fun attractions
As with any water park, Water Country is a land full of rides, slides, and plenty of pools and places to keep cool for everyone! To see how this is one of the most fun places to go with kids, check out our top picks for water attractions.
Let’s start with some fun for even the smallest guests. We recommend Bubble Bay as the perfect place to start your splashing journey into Water Country! If you or your little ones want to start off small, this is a great way to do just that. Jump into the spraying geysers and bubbling water alongside your kids for a super quick cool-down. Plus, to keep your little ones even safer, guests under 48” tall are required to wear a life jacket, ensuring everyone’s wellbeing!
Pirate’s Pool and Lagoon
Ahoy, Matey! Kids of all ages will jump for joy at the chance to play pirate for a day at our Pirate’s Pool and Lagoon. This is a swashbuckling adventure of a water play area designed for kids who are a few years older; dreams really do come true on our unique pirate ship! Here, kids can walk the plank on their very own water slides, with plenty of places to hide for the pirates onboard the ship. With cannons to be used for waging epic water battles and volcanoes to transport the little pirates to exotic lands, this is a must for kids of all ages. The best part, though, is that there’s a lounging area all around the lagoon set up specifically for parents; so, while they play, you can stay chill!
For kids who like adventure, but maybe with a little less pirate flair, the Tahiti Treehouse play area is more chill, yet still plenty of fun. With lots of slides and plenty of other water attractions to play with, there’s the chance to turn the treehouse into whatever they want. Though, if you’re planning on accompanying your smaller kids, you may want a fair warning of the tree house's most thrilling feature: the giant tipping bucket! It’s literally the biggest SPLASH you’ll find in all of Water Country! Please do note that only children under 54” tall are welcome in this area, allowing you and your kids to get some great bonding time.

The question of whether the falls or the canyon is better is a hot debate, so bring the whole family down and decide for yourself! Just like a real whitewater rafting adventure, though, all members of your party must be able to sit by themselves and hold on tight.
Giant Wave Pool

With a whopping 700,000 gallons of water to greet you as soon as you step in, New England’s biggest wave pool will keep you cool all day.
