At 25,000 square feet, WanaWaves is a comparatively small indoor water park. It is part of the Splash Universe chain. It lacks the marquee attractions of bigger indoor water parks such as an uphill water coaster, a surfing ride, a bowl ride, or even a family raft ride. It does, however, offer the basic water slides, a lazy river, and an interactive water play station.
The hotel offers family suites, bunk suites, and standard guest rooms. The rooms include continental breakfast. In addition to the indoor water park, the resort offers an arcade, ice cream shop, and a gift shop. It also features the Adventure Quest Kids Clubhouse which provides crafts, storytelling, and other activities for younger children.
