Pirate’s Cay™ Indoor Waterpark

Ready to take the excitement up a notch and have a splashy, fun adventure while you live out your inner pirate? Then have we got a treasure waiting for you! Pirate’s Cay is our very own on property indoor waterpark, and it’s perfect for kids of all ages. You and your family will have so much fun racing down winding tubes and floating past the palm trees while you glide down the lazy river. The little ones will love getting drenched by dump buckets, shooting water guns, and climbing aboard Parrot’s Perch, a pirate ship playscape. We’ve got tubes and life jackets throughout the park, and if you forgot the pool toys or swim accessories, our Marketplace has lots to choose from. And when you need a short break to rest up and dry out, we’ve got a fun-filled arcade that’ll help you do just that!
