Endless rows of machines and plentiful amenities make this recently updated, 40,000-square-foot gym a luxurious emporium of healthy living. Dimond Athletic Center offers a variety of equipment for total-body fitness, allowing members to break a sweat on Precor treadmills, stationary bicycles, free weights, and low-impact ellipticals, or firm up out-of-shape thumbs on the computerized, user-friendly Life Fitness machines.
In a steady procession, waves rear up to 4 feet high before collapsing and delighting waders with blasts of spray. Unlike ocean waves, these aren’t governed by the moon, and they don’t crash against a beach. Instead, they rhythmically rise and fall in the wave pool at H2Oasis Indoor Waterpark, which stays open year-round and is the state’s only indoor water park.
Outside of the wave pool, park visitors can find watery solace floating down the 575-foot lazy river with its gentle current. For a higher-octane experience, the Master Blaster water coaster rockets riders through a splash-filled adventure much safer than riding a scooter into the shower. And when it comes to entertaining the younger set, the four cannons on the park’s pirate ship evoke intrigue on its waters, and the placid children’s lagoon gives tentative youngsters a haven for safe play.
