Splish Splash opened in May 1991 and guests were immediately delighted at the beautiful 32 acre water park which contained 2 tube slides, 3 body slides, a family raft ride, 2 speed slides, a 1300 foot “lazy river”, 2 kiddie pools and a restaurant. Besides the thrilling rides, the magical atmosphere of the park fascinated visitors.
Splish Splash introduced “The Abyss”- an enclosed, twisting tube ride. Also added to Kiddie Cove was the elephant pool. A gigantic elephant with a slide that kids could enjoy
In 1993, the exciting “Barrier Reef” was born. This “Jaws” themed ride proved to entice riders with the themed music and waiting area.
In 1994 “Shotgun Falls” was built. This western themed slide takes riders down a short, fast slide where they are dropped 10 feet into a pool. Shotgun Falls quickly became a park favorite to many visitors.
In 1995, its fifth year of operation, Splish Splash unveiled the 20,000 square foot wave pool, which boasted gigantic waves that guests could enjoy. This became a popular area for everyone. Children and adults could enjoy the wave pool whether they wanted to relax on the beach or swim through the amazing waves.
In 1996, we introduced a ride for the biggest thrill-seekers out there. The “Cliff Diver” is an 80-foot tall speed slide that is so fast and steep that it is sure to thrill every rider. Those who accept the challenge plummet down the slide at such a high speed that it is over in the blink of an eye. Most riders spectate at the bottom, watching in awe and cheering as each person makes it down.
In 1997, Splish Splash unveiled its tram system and new parking area. This system allowed for more guest parking and the convenience of a tram to transport them to and from their vehicles.
In 1999, the Boardwalk Area was introduced. This added two new food venues, an ice cream parlor, arcade and a first aid station. Also added this same year was Monsoon Lagoon, an interactive family play area.
In 2002, Splish Splash built one of its most spectacular rides. The “Hollywood Stunt Rider” is a Hollywood themed enclosed family ride, complete with an interactive water show for guests to enjoy while waiting in line. Legendary film director “Irving Fabrezio” is an animatronics figure that narrates the show, as he attempts to audition guests for his latest blockbuster.
In 2004, we added the Dragon’s Den, which opened to rave reviews. Dragon’s Den is a breathtaking answer to those on a quest for maximum thrills. You’ll catapult through mysterious darkness and then plummet into the mist-shrouded abyss of the dragon…only to vanish from sight. This is an absolute must-see attraction.
In 2006, Splish Splash added its second most popular attraction Alien Invasion. A ride that will send chills through your bones as you enter the 40 foot funnel!
In 2009 Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror was built! Riders brave this one-of-a-kind dark ride, on a two-person WhirleyWheel tube that spins freely while descending four stories in total darkness, accelerating them toward a giant funnel. Seemingly out of nowhere, the bottom drops out and riders are driven skyward into the upper hemisphere of the enclosed Tornado Flume. Surprises await at every turn as riders crash through images eerily projected onto strategically placed water curtains. Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror—the definitive answer to the ultimate question of courage: You’re not afraid of the dark, are you?
In 2010, The Splish Splash Diner was added; offering made to order burgers and shakes and in 2011 the diner became Johnny Rockets serving those All-American favorites.
A second wavepool was added, Kahuna Bay. Also added were private rental VIP cabanas built alongside Kahuna Bay giving Splish Splash that resort atmosphere that guests covet. What better way to relax and catch some rays then by enjoying your own private cabana poolside.
In 2012, Splash Landing was re-themed and Dinosaur Falls roared into life. Grab your raft for a daredevil expedition into the wilds of prehistory. Fortunately, the water runs fast, so you should keep just ahead of the dinosaurs. Be warned: the only thing bigger than their teeth is their appetite! Use the speed slides for a quick escape. Also new in 2012, Splish Splash offered their guests the opportunity to reserve your time and wait less in line. This all new Splish Splash virtual ride reservation system holds your place in line, so you can spend more time having fun and less time waiting for our most popular attractions.
In 2013, Bootlegger’s Run debuted at Splish Splash and was the first ever water coaster ride in the state of New York featuring new generation hydromagnetic technology. Bootlegger’s Run takes four-person rafts uphill, just like a theme park coaster, for a series of breathtaking drops, including one from nearly five stories high.
In 2014, Mutiny Bay was added. This interactive water attraction takes you and your fearless crew on a captivating voyage! The passengers inside the boats utilize their water cannons to shoot against the other vehicles and against the people around the giant lagoon. The people around the lagoon have fixed water cannons to shoot against the riders. Man those water cannons and be prepared to defend yourself against roving bands of pirates and pesky sea creatures. Let the battle begin!
