Looking for something fun and exciting to do this summer? Opening summer of 2017 in Currituck County, H2OBX Waterpark (obxwaterpark.com) will complement the region’s unique tourism offerings, delivering world premier attractions, enhanced guest service, and an exciting new option for fun and entertainment to the hundreds of thousands of families who vacation in the Outer Banks each year. H2OBX sprawls across 80 acres just off of U.S. 158 in Powells Point, N.C., three miles north of the Currituck Bridge, the northern gateway to the Outer Banks.
H20BX will deliver more than 30 waterslides and attractions, combining several first-to-market and enhanced slides and experiences. Waterslides will offer various degrees of thrills, lengths, drops, turns and intensity. Guests will be able to ride the waves on a Flowrider®, float along an adventure river and stand under an exhilarating 1,000-gallon bucket dump. And that’s where the traditional, preferred attractions end and an advanced waterpark blueprint begins.
H2OBX has been carefully designed and themed to pay homage to the history and culture of the Outer Banks. Enhanced attractions include two wave pools. The first, developed by Aquatic Development Group, is a new to the waterpark market, Twin Tides wavepool, offering the fundamental ocean-simulated current, tide and waves that guests love, but with new dual “beachfront” entrance points on opposite ends. The second is the more traditional beach entry wave pool programmed with several wave categories up to four feet in height. A revolutionary Adventure Lagoon includes balance, climb and crawl soft mat obstacles and swim zones. Also unique to H2OBX is an immersive, multi-level, pirate-themed, play structure that reveals a smart design offering more waterslides and interactive water effects. H2OBX will also feature hybrid waterslides, special effects including aqua-lucent lighting, gravity defying enhancements, increased thrill factors and theming to undoubtedly deliver one of the most cutting-edge waterpark ever constructed.
In addition to thrill, H2OBX has places to chill. Over 50 private cabana’s including a premium cabana village, will offer first-class amenities and guest service in a private oasis setting. Shaded seating areas, multiple food and beverage outlets, a Wright Brothers flyer themed bar, and free Wi-Fi are among the many offered conveniences.
