The Castaway Bay Waterpark in Sandusky, Ohio is part of the Castaway Bay Resort, owned by Cedar Point Amusement Park and located next door to the popular park. Situated inside a five-story structure, Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark occupies approximately 38,000 square feet.
The waterpark, which boasts an elaborate tropical theme, is divided into several distinct sections, each of which includes one or more water attractions. At Creature Cove, for example, guests will enjoy riding upon numerous flotation devices and playing water basketball at the many hoops located there. The Tropical Tube Slides, the tallest features in the park, are a set of three colorful slides that twist and turn. These covered body slides are among the most popular features at Castaway Bay Waterpark.
Rendezvous Run is the wildest attraction at the park. This 35 foot-high, 520 foot-long water coaster propels riders uphill and then sends them soaring both inside and outside of the park. The Lookout Lagoon Family Funhouse portion of the waterpark includes four exciting slides - Mango Melee, Tropical Twister, Pineapple Pipeline, and Paradise Plunge. Each is a little different and height restrictions vary on each. Two are designed especially for children. Also in the Lookout Lagoon Family Funhouse is a large, multi-story interactive play area, suitable for all ages, featuring more than 100 different elements such as a 1,000 gallon tipping bucket that soaks unsuspecting guests and plenty of water guns and canons.
The Castaway Bay Wave Pool is a 100,000 gallon pool that generates 3 foot waves suitable for body surfing. There's a large seating area near the pool so that parents can watch their children near the water's edge. Designed especially for the waterpark's youngest visitors is the Toddler Tide Pool area. This section includes a tandem slide, water pipes, spraying gadgets and sea creature play structures and visitors must be less than 52 inches tall to play here.
Finally, those who want to relax or warm up can take advantage of the two 50-person whirlpool spas located in The Grotto. One is located indoors and the other outdoors. Age restrictions apply.
As part of the Castaway Bay Resort, this waterpark is included with a stay at the hotel. For those who do not have hotel reservations at Castaway Bay, day passes are available. In addition, to the waterpark, guests at Castaway Bay can also enjoy a luxurious day spa, a fitness center, a 6,000 square foot video game room (adjacent to the waterpark), retail shops, three restaurants, and a child activity center. The 237-room hotel also provides space for meetings and group social events.
Because Castaway Bay Waterpark is located indoors, it is open seven days a week, year round. Hours vary according to season and are longest during the peak summer months of June through early September. During the summer, many visitors head to Cedar Point in the cooler morning hours and return to the resort to enjoy the waterpark during the afternoon heat, so the park is generally most crowded during that time.
