Adding water results in less floury biscuits, larger foam dinosaurs, and slides that won't give a shirtless cousin friction burn. Douse yourself in smooth-moving good times with today's Groupon to Splash Zone Water Park in Wildwood. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get one all-day admission to the park, valid for one visit on Memorial Day weekend, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, fountain drinks, parking, and a buy-one-get-one-free ride on a mechanical bull (up to an $83 value).
- For $16, you get one all-day admission ticket for guests taller than 48 inches, valid for one visit between May 28 and May 30, June 1 and June 30, on Sundays in July and August, or between August 27 and September 5 (a $32 value).
- For $12, you get one all-day admission ticket for guests 48 inches tall or shorter, valid for one visit between May 28 and May 30, June 1 and June 30, on Sundays in July and August, or between August 27 and September 5 (a $24 value).
All-day admission grants guests up to 10 hours of water sliding, splashing, and dunking on 14 aquatic rides and attractions that sprawl out across the Splash Zone Water Park campus. Memorial Day weekend visitors (Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29, or Monday, May 30) can sail down the dark Midnight Run, soar across the Speed Dominator body flume, or meander through the lazy Rivy's River before being festooned with feasts from The Zone Grill, beginning with a breakfast of two pancakes, coffee or juice (a $9 value) and followed by a slice of pizza for lunch (a $3.75 value). After building appetites, swimmers can choose a dinner of a hamburger, hot dog, or chicken tenders served alongside an order of french fries (an $8.50 value) and fountain drinks (a $5 value) that will inspire tone-deaf taste buds to serenade incisors with John Fogerty lyrics.
Between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m., guests can ride the mechanical bull (a $15 value), which, unlike younger siblings, will not complain when you jump on its back. Mechanical steeds can take a break in the parking lot (a $10 value) while drivers soak up watery fun. If the park is forced to close because of weather during Memorial Day Weekend, guests must redeem their offer at the front gate to be granted admission on another day.
Though Splash Zone Water Park sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Arms folded across her chest, the young girl rides a spouting cascade of water through the pitch-black tube, squealing with each twist and turn afforded by the snaking confines. Just as it seems as though the darkness will never lift, sunlight pours onto her face as she is spit out into a crystal-blue pool below. This high-adrenaline ride is the reward for being brave enough to tackle the Midnight Run, one of Splash Zone’s numerous waterslides. Other rides include their newest attraction, the FlowRider, which combines surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding with a continuous wave formed by a thin sheet of water for a new sport available for all ages.
Nestled in the heart of Wildwood, the aquatic adventureland evokes whoops and squeals from visitors of all ages with more than 16 splash-laden activities. The gentle ebb of Rivy’s River carries inner-tubing guests along at a relaxed pace, and the interactive water playground in Giggle Bay ensures that the young adventurers remain hydrated thanks to a constantly tipping bucket filled with 1,000 gallons of water. As aquanauts explore the waters, Splash Zone’s crew of certified lifeguards and sunglass-clad Saint Bernards remain on hand to ensure safety, and an onsite first-aid station offers remedies for a variety of ailments. Along with watery pastimes, Splash Zone offers sunbathing areas to facilitate leisurely tanning, and the Zone Grill where chefs forge fire-licked eats for hungry guests.
