A great way to cool down during the final dog days of summer, Charleston County’s waterparks are still open through Labor Day! All three area waterparks are now open weekends only through Sept. 4. The waterparks will be open on Labor Day, Sept. 4.
Fun awaits Lowcountry residents and visitors at Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s three waterparks – Splash Zone, Splash Island and Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark! Park hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark is located at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park. The largest waterpark in the Charleston area, Whirlin’ Waters features unique activities for all ages – from curious little ones to thrill-seeking adults. Children enjoy the Otter Bay pool area and The Big Splash Tree Housefeaturing slides, sprays, interactive play elements and a giant bucket that dumps 1,000 gallons of water. Lily Pad Lagoon, a toddler play area, provides hours of fun with a shallow pool and spray geysers. Adults can unwind while drifting down the 870-foot-long Rollin’ River. The 27,000-square-foot Big Kahuna wave pool is a family favorite. For thrill seekers, Tubular Twister guarantees a rush of excitement. And the park’s Rip Tide Run mat racer slide takes riders on an exciting head-to-head competition down the four-story slide toward the finish line.
Splash Zone, located in James Island County Park, is a popular park that brings the Caribbean to Charleston with island-style play structures and two 200-foot-long slides. Spend the day relaxing in the large leisure pool or floating endlessly on the lazy river.
Splash Island at Mount Pleasant Palmetto Islands County Park is tucked deep within tropical vegetation and provides hours of fun and recreation for toddlers to pre-teenage children. Enjoy slides, sprays, geysers, waterfalls and more.
The waterparks also offer a full range of amenities including concessions, lockers for securing items, lounge chairs, showers and restrooms. Each waterpark is staffed with trained lifeguards to provide a safe experience. In an effort to support CCPRC’s stewardship initiatives, all three waterparks offer on-site composting bins in addition to recycling bins at main concession stands.
