After a major expansion in 2010, SplashTown at Darien Lake got the capacity and rides to qualify as a major water park. It also got a new admission policy; visitors can purchase a reduced-price water park-only ticket. Darien Lake theme park tickets are only sold as combo passes and include admission to the water park.
Among SplashTown's features are the Tornado funnel ride, the huge Big Kahuna family raft ride, the 'Cuda Bay and Swirl City slide towers, the Crocodile Isle wave pool, and Hook's Lagoon, an interactive water play area for the young kiddos. For an additional fee, SplashTown also offers private cabanas.
