Splish Splash Waterpark
2549 Splish Splash Drive LIE Exit 72W Calverton, NY 631-727-3600
Ranked among the top water parks in the nation by Travel Channel, Splish Splash covers 96 acres of land and there's a ride in every direction.
From Alien Invasion to Cliff Diver, from The Abyss to the Max Slide, there's plenty of thrills to be had. New for 2009: Dr. Von Dark's Tunnel of Terror, an enclosed slide that gradually drops 40 feet entirely in the dark.
There's also a lazy river and wave pool for people of all ages and excitement levels, and plenty of rides just for kids.
But what if Mom and Dad want a little refuge from all the commotion? Families can rent a tiki-hut-style cabana, which offers shade and comfort in a sand-filled oasis away from the noise of the park.
Each cabana accommodates up to six guests with a table, four chairs, two lounge chairs and waiter/waitress service throughout the day. VIP cabanas add on a ceiling fan, locker, mini-fridge and a staffed entrance offering extra security and privacy.Hours: Open Memorial Day weekend and weekends only until June 14, open daily June 14-Sept. 1.
