With a generous assortment of water park attractions, including body slides, tube slides, a lazy river, and a wave pool, Big Kahuna's offers cool relief from Florida's heat and watery fun to please just about everyone. Among its featured attractions are Honolulu Half Pipe, a FlowRider surfing attraction, and Maui Pipeline, a set of three thrilling speed slides.

In addition to the water park, Big Kahuna's offers some "dry" attractions at its Adventure Park, including the Super Speed Raceway go-karts and the lushly themed Tropical Mini Golf.
