When you think of Cincinnati, you might not imagine live palm trees, white ocean sands, and tumbling waterfalls, but all of those sights can be found throughout The Beach's water park. With more than 40 different slides and attractions intended for guests of all ages and interests, the park provides entire days' worth of sun-soaked leisure and excitement. Here are a handful of the available attractions:
Big Kahuna: This water slide plunges riders through 500 feet of fast-paced twists, turns, and drops, and a final drop down one last hill into a pool.
The Cliff: Five stories. Three seconds. That's the power of gravity, which makes this slide the closest thing to a controlled free fall in the entire water park.
Hang Ten: This completely enclosed slide sends guests on a blind ride through the twists and turns with only the occasional bit of starbursts before the final splashdown.
