Whirlin’ Waters is home to Otter Bay kiddie pool area, the Big Splash Tree House, Lily Pad Lagoon toddler play area, Rollin’ River lazy river, the Big Kahuna wave pool, and the Tubular Twister slide complex. Some attractions have minimum height restrictions.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the waterpark. In case of rain, Special Needs Swim Night will be rescheduled for July 23.
