Coming in 2021: Get a First Look at the Finished Attractions of Coconut Shores

Although summer has come to an end we can’t help but look ahead to 2021.  And, since we’re all looking for things to look forward to, here’s a construction update on our new area of Soak City, Coconut Shores.  

When we last updated you, things were starting to go vertical. Since then, there has been a lot of progress, so let’s dive into the details! 

With the vertical poles in place, the different levels and bridges were added as well as two of the slides were attached. On Lighthouse Landing, you’ll find a total of 8 colorful, twisting slides.  

By the end of the summer, the structure was completed. Although the park was closed and we couldn’t share the fun and action with you all, we had some quality assurance and professional splashers test everything out so it is ready to go next summer for you.   

Lighthouse Landing has amazing thematic elements that will transport guests young and old to the tropics with flip flops, colorful beach houses, a lighthouse, and even lifelike birds. My favorite has to be the palm trees and beachy scenes on each level!  

This 45-foot tall multi-level aqua play structure features more than 200 interactive splash elements that will delight and cool down guests of all ages. And, my favorite part might be the 8-inch wading pool so no matter where you are you can cool down. 

 

 

Coconut Shores is a complete redesign of this area of the water park and there is still plenty of work to do! 

We’re even giving an update to the splashtastic favorite – Pipeline Peak! An all-new color scheme brightens these four thrilling slides and the overall area.  

 

The full transformation took nearly 4 weeks and nearly 130 gallons of paint and 47 gallons of gel coating to ensure that slip and slide is just as thrilling and provide lasting color and protection.  

 

You might remember this as Pipeline Peak before:

After!  

 

Check out the fun color contrast on the slides! And – look at that shine! 

 

We can’t wait for you to experience the newly designed area in 2021. Excited to splash along with us next season?
