The indoor water park at King's Pointe is quite small compared to most indoor water parks, but it does offer some nice features. The centerpiece is the Electric Eel, an enclosed "interactive" raft ride. Guests choose a theme before riding, and imagery is projected onto water screens inside the tube along with accompanying sounds.
The park also offers two water slides, Intrepid Cyclone and Runaway Rebel. During the warmer months, the outdoor water attractions open, including a lazy river, speed slides, the Twisted Tornado bowl ride, and another interactive slide, Discovery Plunge.
King's Pointe offers family suites as well as standard rooms along with supervised children's activities, a restaurant, an arcade, a fitness room, and meeting and function facilities.
