Maine’s oldest water park, Aquaboggan has thrilled kids and adults with aquatic and terrestrial attractions for more than 30 years. Armed with a general-admission ticket, spend a sun-drenched day enjoying unlimited access to pools, slides, and mini golf. Zoom down twisting slides to sate your most urgent need for speed, or grapple your way up the side of Aquaboggan’s water-slick Aquasaucer, a climbable half dome modeled after the drenched heights of Mount Everest. The Toddler Splash ‘N’ Play, a shallow pool with swings, slides, a fountain, and a climbing gym, gives youngsters a cool, playful place to flex their gills with parental supervision. After a round of aquatic thrills, putt through 18 holes of mini golf on the landscaped course, sporting to-scale challenges and a microscopic pro shop. General ticket holders can purchase rides on the Bumpin' Boats and Grand Prix Go Carts for an additional $6.00 per ride.
The Best Value Super Pass includes all-day unlimited use of pools and slides, as well as two free rides on the Grand Prix Go Carts and unlimited free rides on the Bumpin' Boats. Visitors 54 inches or taller can take to the go-kart track to practice automotive stunt skills, including speedy turns, blazing passes, and wrangling the car keys away from protective parents. Indulge in aquatic rivalry on the Bumpin’ Boats, where captains 48 inches or taller face off in self-propelled, rubber-ringed vessels. Smaller counterparts are welcome to come along for the ride as passengers.
Aquaboggan Water Park
At Aquaboggan Water Park, anyone can perform spinning tricks on the half-pipe—it's practically unavoidable. Tube-equipped riders launch down the slippery 45-foot-tall parabola, careening up and down its sides before sliding down into the connected pool. Nicknamed Stealth 5, the half-pipe is just one of the park's unconventional attractions, joining the ranks of the Aquasaucer, a soft dome with a fountain at the top and ropes leading from its peak to its base.
Of course, in its 35 years, Aquaboggan hasn't lost respect for the classics, both wet and dry. Its Pipeline entices guests down a twisting trio of slides, readying riders for a high-speed race on the Turbo Drop's side-by-side slides. Wee ones can splash in the wave pool or take part in a consequence-free lesson in aquatic navigation on the bumper boats. Afterward, guests can dry out on an 18-hole mini-golf course and a high-speed go-cart track.
