Returning Spring 2021
Amid the peace and serenity of Jekyll Island is an exciting family attraction – Summer Waves Water Park. Known for its cool, refreshing waters, clean surroundings, and amazing views of the Jekyll River, Summer Waves offers a variety of ways to beat the heat this season.
From lazy laps around Turtle Creek to high-speed thrills down Pirate’s Passage, there’s no limit to the special memories you’ll make. Whether it’s your family, friends or group – come on in. The water’s perfect.
Shark Tooth Cove
This kids’ zone features a bigger pool, more slides, and 360° seating to watch your little ones.
Maximum height restriction to 52” tall
Trade in fast rides for a relaxing float in Turtle Creek. This lazy river is a half-mile, slow-moving stream that lets you take a break from the action and enjoy a beautiful summer day.
The Force 3 gives you triple the slide action! This ride stands 32-feet tall and features three slides to keep the fun going all day long.
Guests must be 48” tall to ride.
Take the plunge! Pirate’s Passage riders hop on a double-seater inner-tube and slide down a five-story enclosed tower. It’s fast. It’s furious. It’s fun.
Guests must be 48” tall to ride.
Frantic Atlantic Wave Pool
Catch a ride on these waves! The Frantic Atlantic pool is more than 500,000 gallons of water, and waves reach heights of more than two feet, making it the coolest pool around.
Nature’s Revenge stands 40 feet tall, and boasts two fierce slides: The Hurricane and The Tornado. Each slide twists and turns, sending riders into a spiral before dropping them off with a splash in the catch pool.
Guests must be 42” tall to ride.
Cool off at our mega Splash Zone! Get doused by the giant water bucket, get drenched by the spectacular downpour, and get soaked with our kid-friendly water guns.
