Seven Peaks Waterpark Porter

By

Seven Peaks is a huge water park packed with plenty of attractions, including four thrilling slides on its Fears Tower. The Vortex swirls riders around in a giant bowl before plopping them into a pool. Another four-slide complex, the Dune Slides, offers passengers a quartet of twisting routes.

Of course no true water park is complete without the requisite wave pool, and Seven Peaks doesn't disappoint with its Duneland Bay. The big of heart but small of stature will find plenty to do in the shallow waters of Sandbar Bay and Sandcastle Sliders -- fun interactive "spraygrounds" designed specifically with kids in mind. There are also various dry activities in which park goers may partake, including beach volley ball on courts of soft white sand, an indoor playland, and an arcade.

Note that the park was originally known as Splash Down Dunes before it reopened as Seven Peaks in 2013.
