Coconut Shores Construction Update

The 2020 season will be here before we know it and we can’t wait for you to see what this season has in store! One of the things that we’re most excited about is our new re-designed area of Soak City, Coconut Shores, which will bring a splash-tastic experience that all ages and families can enjoy. With Coconut Shores, guests will be able to experience three new additions to Soak City featuring Lighthouse Landing, Sand Dune Lagoon and Beach Street. Construction has begun on Coconut Shores and we wanted to share a behind-the-scenes look with you to get you ready for the summer.

Aquatic Development Group (ADG) began construction on Coconut Shores by first laying more than 5,900 pounds of stone in the footprint of Big Wave Bay to raise the floor and make it a more kid-friendly water attraction.

One of the three features will be Sand Dune Lagoon, a 24” mini-wave pool designed with interactive elements and 1 ft.-tall waves that will be sure to bring fun for families and kids alike. In order to create the wall formation of the wave pool, steel was tied prior to the pouring of concrete.

The rocks at the back of Sand Dune Lagoon were built and shaped with concrete to give the wave pool its beach look. Another element the wave pool will feature is a waterfall to complete the tropical look of Sand Dune Lagoon.

Right across the way from Sand Dune Lagoon will be Lighthouse Landing, a giant interactive multi-level aqua play structure that will feature over 200 elements, 8 water slides, and more. This new play structure will be two times the size of the former Soak City Splash House and will feature not one but two water tipping buckets!

The footings of the multi-level play structure were set prior to the pieces of Lighthouse Landing being delivered. 

Just a couple weeks ago, pieces of Lighthouse Landing arrived that will be added to the multi-level aqua play structure. Check out a few of the pieces of Lighthouse Landing before they head to their new home in Soak City.

ADG will continue to work on Coconut Shores throughout the rest of winter and spring to get us ready for the summer. Be sure to follow the KD Blog to get the latest construction updates on all things Coconut Shores!
