Waterville USA is a combination Water Park and Amusement Park located near Gulf Shores, Alabama. The park features 20 acres of amusement park rides, water attractions and other attractions focusing on family fun. The attractions are affordable, priced so that families can enjoy the park multiple times during the summer.
Waterville USA originally opened in 1986 as a water park. In 1995, the management of Waterville USA decided to add amusement park rides and other attractions to the water park to attract more visitors and compete with other amusement parks. In the twelve years since then, Waterville USA has added over $8 million in new attractions and now maintains the best collection of water rides on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Waterville USA claims to have the best collection of water rides on the coast. One of the most popular rides is the Crystal Waters Lazy River, a meandering pool where visitors can lounge around and float on the lazy current in inflated inner tubes. There's also the Gold Rush, a tube raft ride for up to three people that spills guests down a 20-foot slide of twists and turns that dumps into the pool at the end. Also popular is the North Shore Wave Pool, an aggressive ride that is the largest wave pool on the Gulf coast. The 25,000-square-foot pool has timed waves that reach up to three feet tall.
Other rides for thrill seekers include the Screamin' Demon, a body slide with a sixty foot high speed drop, and the Hurricane, a single or double tube ride that sends riders through the eye of the storm. Along with these rides for older kids and adults, however, there are also a number of rides for younger guests. The little ones can enjoy WaWa World, a water park designed especially for them. It features slides and sprays, and plenty of deck space for adult supervisors to keep an eye on the children and ensure safety at all times.
Nearby, the Fun Depot is a place where kids can enjoy a number of other rides that include a merry-go-round and a miniature train. Kids can also enjoy jumping in a bounce jumper or the bungee jumper. They also have a daily family carnival.
For the slightly older children, the park has the House of Bounce, a 2500-square-foot inflatable world of fun. There's an obstacle course to master and a giant drop slide to dare younger adventurers. The Bounce House is an ideal venue for a birthday party, with plenty of seating for adults to relax in air-conditioned comfort while they keep an eye on the miniature bouncers.
There are also rides and attractions that can be fun for the entire family. These attractions include a miniature golf course, an arcade, and Woody's Caf‚, where families can grab a snack and relax before heading back for the high adventures.
Admission prices vary by attractions, and include season passes and group discounts. Visit the web site for more information about ticket prices and hours of admission, or call Waterville USA at 251-948-2106.
