Bring lots of sunscreen, sun-shirts are awesome, sealed water, snack food that will withstand staying in the car for a later hunger time.

Be sure to rent/bring your own raft to use in the wave pool. The slides using raft were fun.

From Our Editors

In 1966, Big Surf Waterpark founder Phil Dexter built his first model of a wave machine in his backyard, a place he affectionally named Tahiti Phil's. With some help, and several models later?including one assembled inside an abandoned billiards hall?he perfected the contraption, making it the centerpiece of his newly opened waterpark in 1969. Dexter's invention instantly snagged press from Time, Sports Illustrated, and Life, and today, it remains Big Surf Waterpark's 2.5-million-gallon keynote attraction. One of Big Surf Waterpark's newest attractions is the Mauna Kea Zip Line, which starts high in the air before zipping over the wave pool. Over the years, despite Arizona's lack of rain or gigantic sprinkler, the park has managed to grow around the wave pool, and its current 20-acre campus features dozens of slides, rides, and areas for all ages. Big Surf's real estate has also played host to entertainment events, including concerts from Pink Floyd, Elton John, and the Beach Boys.
