Dive Into Fun at This Water Park in Destin

Our gorgeous beach life is not to be missed. Sometimes, though, you may crave different water adventures. Well at Big Kahuna's water park near our apartments in Destin, you'll find just that. You can have fun on the slides and play games, all just a few minutes from Olympus Emerald Coast.

Pools and Rivers

There are more than 40 areas to enjoy playing in the water. Chill out in Bombs Away Bay or jump in the tide at the Wave Pool. In the Raging Rhino River, hold onto your inner tube as you get swept along through thrilling turns and twists. At its finish, you find yourself in Humunga River.

When you want something more tranquil, float along the Lazy River.

Rides and Games

For something even more exhilarating, head to the rides at the Adventure Park. Choose from the Sky Coaster 100 feet in the air or the Cyclone Twister, which is 140 feet in the air. In the latter, zoom around through the air at speeds of almost 50 MPH. It's definitely best for those who love soaring at crazy heights.

For a different group activity, play through 54 holes of putt putt at Tropical Mini Golf. Even it is themed for outdoor adventure. Wooden Tiki heads ensure that you're protected from bad vibes, so you'll always have a nice game.

Water Slides

Every great water park needs amazing slides. Jump down one of the many slide areas to choose from. Go full circle in the twisting Monkey River. Let go on Jumanji as you breeze down 70 feet, carried by gravity. When you're looking for even more adrenaline-pumping slides, try Kowabunga Racer. With four lanes that run the length of a football field, this ride is extra wild.

In addition to this water park, get an awesome workout at local Destin fitness centers.
