Splish Splash Water Park


Splish Splash Water Park in Calverton, NY is Long Island's very own amazing, super fun water park! There are many water rides, slides, and attractions suitable for all ages, including The New Kahuna Bay wave pool with four foot high waves that feels like a real ocean wave. If you have kids, you have to visit Splish Splash at least once during the summer.

McDonalds has Splish Splash coupons! I was able to get $3.00 off admission for up to 4 people. You can also save some money by bringing water bottles and snacks and storing them in a locker.

This park is great for Long Islanders on a hot sunny day and it's been extremely popular since it first opened up in 1991 with only 4 rides. Now, the park has about 500,00 visitors every season and proudly claims more than 36 rides and attractions.

There are train trams that are continuously picking up people as they arrive, and dropping them off directly at the park.

With all the people visiting Splish Splash from the surrounding area, the local business have thrived. For example, while visiting the water park, you can make a short trip to the Tanger Outlets, a large retail outlet center in Riverhead, NY.

The park is well maintained, with plenty of restrooms, lifeguards on duty at every ride, and little cubby holes to store your shoes and towel before you get on a line.
