The Massanutten Water Park: Why You Should Go

Massive water slides, water tubes, a hot springs pool and so much more await you at Massanutten Water Park! According to the website,  the indoor section of the water park is climate controlled and always set to 84 degrees – the perfect temperature to jump right in.

The park’s main feature is the Massanutten Meltdown, a giant fun park loaded with everything from slides to water cannons! Kids will stay entertained for hours on this massive water playground!

Do you want to catch a wave, but you’re worried that you can’t since the beach is hours away? Don’t worry, because the The Pipeline is here to meet your surfing needs. The Pipeline is a FlowRider surf machine that recreates the fun of surfing, even when the ocean is nowhere in sight. You don’t need to be a pro when it comes to surfing, though – the staff at Massanutten Water Park will show the ropes (or the waves, to be specific).

If your idea of water is synonymous with rest, then head to the Shenandoah Hot Springs, a pool designed with relaxation in mind. Families will love the Shenandoah Cove, a three-foot pool that swimmers and splashers of any age will love. You can also find tube slides, body slides and more, all under one roof!

The fun doesn’t stay inside at Massanutten Water Park! Head outside and challenge a friend to a race down the Rockingham Racer water slide, or catch some rays at White Caps, a small beach complete with simulated waves. For more information on the park’s outdoor activities, click here.
