The world’s largest beachfront waterpark will open at The Showboat Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 30, 2023. The year-round waterpark promises to have something for everyone — and a lot more than just water slides.
Here’s a look at everything you should know about Island Waterpark.
Island Waterpark at The Showboat Resort
Island Waterpark will span 120,000 square feet and feature 19 water slides. The park will also be home to the Wild Wave FlowRider surf simulator, and it will become the state’s only surf simulator to offer lessons.
Other attractions include a man-made waterfall, a 30-foot-tall tree house for private events, and a lazy river. Each area of the park has been designed around different island themes.
The park will have special areas for visitors of all ages. For example, there will be an interactive play area called the Kid’s Cove, and 5 of the park’s waterslides will be for its youngest visitors.
For adults, there are 6 bars throughout Island Waterpark. Paradise Adult Island inside the park includes a DJ, an adults-only pool, and the only swim-up bar in Atlantic City. This area will also feature Peloton bikes, chair massages, and cabanas.
Other unique attractions include a 1,000-foot zero-gravity roller coaster and a 300-foot zip line.
The retractable glass roof ensures the waterpark can be enjoyed year-round. Summer rates start at $89 for daytime general admission. All-Access VIP admission includes access to Paradise Adult Island and starts at $119.
The Showboat Resort
The Showboat Hotel is already home to the world’s largest arcade which features over 600 games. The opening of the Island Waterpark marks the hotel’s transformation into the Showboat Resort. The resort will include rollerblading, mini golf, and a climbing wall.
The hotel is also undergoing a renovation to its interiors and guest rooms which is scheduled to be completed this fall.
Guests of the Showboat Hotel receive morning access to Island Waterpark an hour before the park opens.
