The Park at OWA Opens New Splash Pad


(Foley, Alabama) — Summer has officially began and there is now a new, exciting way
too cool down! The Park at OWA recently unveiled its newest, family friendly addition:
the "Wacky Waters” splash pad. As part of OWA’s 520-acre resort development, The
Park at OWA is a gated amusement park featuring 22 thrilling attractions. Its newest
addition comes just in time for the summer sunshine on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Wacky Waters – a 9,500 ft. splash pad – opened over Memorial Day weekend. The
splash pad’s water-themed amenities include a 20 ft. tall dump bucket, a towering
"coconut tree” that showers guests with 54 gallons of water per minute, a 6 ft. tall water
dome, and more than 15 different attractions and sprayers to keep you soaked for
hours. For those familiar with The Park at OWA, Wacky Waters sits on the southwest
side of the 14-acre park close to the children’s attractions.

"Our guests spoke about recommended improvements to the amusement park and we
listened,” stated Kristin Hellmich, OWA Director of Marketing/PR. "The Wacky Waters
splash pad is one of several new amenities created to help our guests beat the summer
heat. If you haven’t visited The Park at OWA lately, come on out! You will definitely see
a lot of new improvements we recently installed to further enhance the guest
experience.”

Wacky Waters offers park-goers a chance to cool off from the summer heat, complete
with a cabana-style area for parents to relax. Bring your own towels and sundries, which
can be stored in onsite lockers. Or guests can also purchase supplies onsite such as
towels, sunscreen, and swim diapers. Being centrally located in The Park at OWA,
guests can enjoy splashing around for a while before drying off just in time to hop over
to the Rollin’ Thunder coaster for some full-force wind action.

The splash pad is not the only new addition to The Park at OWA this summer season. A
variety of outdoor structures and amenities have been added to enhance the guest
experience such as an air-conditioned quick-serve dining area, shaded resting areas
throughout the park, misters, fans, and even sun-shades above several of the rides.
Whether you enjoy the thrill of the amusement park or shopping and dining in
Downtown OWA, the entire resort continues to constantly grow and add exciting
amenities. The Park at OWA, the admission based attraction, is welcoming its first full
summer season in style with new attractions, daily family activities, live performances
six days a week, and more exciting announcements to come. Downtown OWA, the
shopping and dining part of the resort that is always free to access, has just added new
retailers such as Cinnabon, Auntie Anne’s, and Parker & Co. – a ladies clothing
boutique.
