  • We had a great day at H2OBX today! We got there right at 10 am when it opened. We had reserved a cabana which was a splurge but we appreciated it. Although getting there at 10am would have allowed...  more »
  • This has quickly become our favorite water park for our kids. It is immaculate compared to others. It’s small enough to not be overwhelming but is still fun. Something for everyone.  more »
  • Overall the park is a great attraction for the outer banks area. There’s more than enough parking even on busy days. Staff is friendly if you have any questions. There’s seating everywhere look around the park with lots of umbrellas in place and you can’t forget the cabana services that comes with one free round of snacks for the group. You have a couple different food / snack options that are priced as you would assume ( couple dollars more per meal than an actual food establishment). All the pools are kept up with and clean every time we visit ( multiple times a week ) and there’s plenty of tubes for everyone to get in line for the big selection of thrill rides, which makes up almost all the rides available at the time. A decently sized family / kid zone off to the side of the park away from the other bigger attractions so you can enjoy the smaller wave pool and slides with your little ones. There’s a lot to see and do at the park, don’t just drive by, you’ve gotta take a look for yourself. Only down fall would have to be the type of rides available at the time. They all are mostly single or double tube rides. No body rides like most park have that are a little more creative and exciting than just going straight down over and over again like half the rides now. Rumors are that there is other phases in plan to expand the park. Hopefully we can get that in the future and add more entertaining rides that offers more options.
  • Great variety of rides and activities. Food is overpriced (bit no more than any other in park food venues). Plan to spend the whole day to get the most for your money. After 5pm the park attendance wanes and lines shorten dramatically. Pack a lunch and cooler as you can leave the park and go to you vehicle and to eat to save some money. The 8 day pass is a great deal if you can get to the park several days during the week. Music played over PA really lends to the relaxing and enjoyable environment.
