Last weekend, Branson’s largest water park, White Water, began its yearly tradition of hosting Night Water, which sees the park remain open until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays now through Aug. 10.
Saturday nights during Night Water will see guests turn their attention the skies as the park will again host a fireworks display, featuring a new choreographed finale, at 9:45 p.m.
White Water features more than “2 million gallons of fun” spread across 13 acres of water rides and slides, White Water features attractions both riveting and relaxing. Among the riveting is White Water’s most recent slide, the $1.7 million KaPau Plummet.
This slide features a near-vertical 70-degree plunge and two-story free fall through two 240-foot dueling slides, followed by a spiraling loop. Riders will reach speeds up to 26 feet per second as they loop through the translucent water slides before the final splashdown. Spectators are able to watch the riders throughout their plunge.
Also popular is the seven-story, six-slide Kalani Towers, with two 300-foot drop slides and four additional 312-foot slides for lane racing.
Another guest favorite is the “lazy river,” or Aloha River at Hula Hula Bay. This family attraction transports guests to the Polynesian jungles of the South Pacific, where calm waters carry them through the wild island landscape. The river also sees its share of unexpected twists and turns, fountains, misters, bubblers, geysers, a 30-foot-tall tiki water tower and more.
Other slides and rides include the Pipeline Plunge and the 500,000-gallon Surf’s Up Wave Pool, Ohana Falls and Waikiki Wave.
White Water also has several places for children, including the immersive play area called Coconut Cove, designed specifically for smaller kids with eight tipping buckets, along with water slides, water blasters, “bubbler” fountains and hose jets. The kids also take center stage at Splashaway Cay, an interactive family attraction with slides and geysers, which also features “new bright and vibrant colors.”
For those seeking a more relaxing time, White Water also offers rental cabanas, which come outfitted with tables, chairs, a TV with satellite access, ceiling fans and a personal locker, four lounge chairs and four tubes.
As always, there are plenty of food options, as well as special events.
Exclusive deals on admission are offered after 5 p.m.
