Unlike most municipal water parks, which tend to be fairly small, Magic Waters is decent-sized facility with plenty of slides and attractions. Among the featured attractions is The Abyss, a 50-foot tall tower with slides that twist and turn in the dark. The body slides reach speeds up to 30 mph. SplashBlaster is a two-person raft that rises 80 feet above the park and plunges 35 feet over the edge. Tsunami Bay is a heated wave pool.
SplashMagic River is an interactive river ride and SplashMagic Island's Castaway Adventure is a 50-foot tall interactive water entertainment complex. Little Lagoon is a water play area for the little ones. Other attractions include sand beach volleyball and basketball courts.
The park offers quite a few food stands, including Island Grill and Coconut Cafe. Don't expect gourmet fare. Picnic facilities are available outside in the parking area.
