We’re in the dead of summer, which means that New Yorkers are definitely feeling the heat and looking for ways to keep cool. While sitting in the AC can be nice, the best way to beat the heat is to hit a water park in NYC or nearby.
When it comes to New York water parks, Splish Splash is New York’s largest waterpark, offering fun and exhilarating ways to keep cool for folks of all ages. No matter if you are looking to visit our water park with the family or hit the slides with some friends, here are three reasons why a day trip to Splish Splash is the best way to beat the New York heat.
As far as Splish Splash rides go, the park offers incredible water attractions for guests of all ages.
If you are planning on coming down with the kids, beat the New York heat by riding around in the Lazy River or get a nice cooling spray of water at the Yellow Submarine slide. Alternatively, if the kids are a bit older and looking for something more exhilarating, race headlong on mats down our Riptide Racer or head-to-head down a 50’ straight drop on the Max Trax slides.
Alternatively, young adults who are looking for a cool time with a group of friends, plummet down dueling 300-foot slides at Bombs Away. Afterward, get everyone together on a single raft and take an out-of-control ride into the unknown on the out-of-this-world experience offered by Alien Invasion. If this is the kind of ride that suits your group, then be sure to check out the intense four-person roller coaster-style slide at Bootleggers Run.
If you’ve been to Splish Splash before and are looking for something new, then you can’t miss our thrilling new ride, Hyperlight! This slide recharges a long-time favorite ride and sends park goers flying through a vivid electric journey of dueling slides with light and sound.
No matter how relaxing or intense you are looking for your summer getaway from NYC to be, Splish Splash has the right ride for you.
Whenever you need to take a break from the sun and slides, Splish Splash offers a multitude of places to get out of the heat and into some air conditioning. If you’re looking to sit down for a while, grab a hamburger at Johnny Rockets or the Last Chance Grill. If you just want a quick and cooling treat, then stop by Plaza Ice Cream to grab yourself a cone, sundae, or Fizz Cup Float. Splish Splash is also home to the ICEE Mix It Up Stand, which offers refreshing ICEE drinks and unique flavors to cool down with.
For the 21 and over crowd, there’s the RiverView Bar, serving up cold drinks and delicious brews from renowned breweries such as Peconic County, Blue Point, and others.
Splish Splash’s New York water park doesn’t force you to choose between sliding in the sun or sitting inside in a climate-controlled area. Our park has tons of lush trees that don’t just make the park look beautiful but they provide plenty of shade all throughout the park as well.
In addition to lots of comfortable, shady areas, Splish Splash also offers cabanas in different areas of the park as well, providing a true VIP experience. Some cabanas also come with service from a waiter or waitress, so you don’t need to venture out into the sun to get a refreshing beverage.
If you are interested in one of our cabanas, be sure to inquire when getting your Splish Splash tickets or H2Go pass to reduce your wait time for rides.
