  • Zoombezi Bay, the most accessible locally located water park. It's well maintained and the private cabanas are really good for folks to celebrate any special days! It may sound pricey but two day passes and season passes makes it all worth. Family night, Movie night and more activities makes you come again and again. construction is on going and I see more rides are being added along with picnic grove
  • Zoombezi Bay it's so much fun! Whether you like the thrill of water slides or lazing down the"river" on a tube raft, or jumping over waves in the wave pool, or laying out in the sun, or hearing your kiddos scream with glee as a humongous bucket of water dumps out and drenched them, Zoombezi has it all. The slides are very fun. The park is not to big, so it's easy to get around. Lockers for rent inside are kinda pricey, but handy. There's a changing area inside. They've done a good job to make it feel like a fun-in-the-sun vacation day. Lots of areas for kids to play too.
