Your Oasis of Comfort

Elevate your water park experience with a private cabana rental!

Splashin’ Safari offers comfortable cabanas that provide a dedicated space to relax, unwind, and recharge in the shade. We checked in as soon as we entered the park because it’s the perfect spot to safely store all your belongings and serves as a great meeting place for your crew. With amenities like lounge chairs, shaded seating, and personalized service, cabanas offer a little oasis amidst the busy excitement of the park!

Another cabana rental perk? Meal delivery!

Trade in the hassle of spending time hunting down something for everyone to eat. Order delicious meals and have them delivered directly to your cabana with the new mobile ordering service! It’s a hassle-free way to fuel up and satisfy your cravings without missing out on any of the action. The menu offers tons of options and cuisines.

Pro tip: you can’t go wrong with Splashin’ Safari pizza!

What to Ride

From towering water coasters to family-friendly attractions, Splashin’ Safari has something for everyone.

The spot our family always agrees to visit? The Bahari River! Our toddlers love splashing their way down the river while the adults have a leisurely float!

With a wide range of experiences available, everyone in your group will find something they love.

Here are a few recommendations if visiting with little ones:

  • Safari Sam’s SplashLand: When first introducing our little ones to the waterpark, this was their must-see spot. Last summer, we spent entire days camped out here watching them zoom down each of the toddler-friendly slides!
  • Kima Bay: Welcome to another family-friendly spot that will keep the kids entertained for hours! The towering play structure is filled with various water slides, sprayers and is topped with a bucket that tips tons of water every few minutes.
  • Bahari Wave: The shallow-to-deep entrance is perfect for all ages, making it safe for even the littlest swimmers. Bonus: life jackets are available, so no need to pack and haul around floaties or a vest for your little ones!

If cabana services and splashing through the wave pool don’t have you convinced, I have another trick up my sleeve.

Debatably, the best perk is how many FREEBIES are included with your visit. Splashin’ Safari keeps you hydrated with free soft drinks, water and a variety of sports drinks. There are multiple areas to grab an on-the-go beverage or fill up a tervis you picked up in the gift shop!

Guests can also skip on packing sunscreen thanks to the free SPF, available at tons of spots throughout the park.

My favorite new perk? The FREE Pre-K Season Passes! This is an online exclusive, so head to register your little one here prior to your visit.

Grab your swimsuits and flip flops – a day at Splashin’ Safari promises a fantastic blend of excitement, relaxation, and fun for the whole family! From thrilling water slides to the convenience of ordering meals right to your cabana, you’ll bask in the ease and memories made during your worry-free visit.
