Wild Adventures Gives a Detailed Look at New Ohana Bay Expansion

Hard to believe, but it really won't be all that long before visitors to Wild Adventures will be enjoying the park's Splash Island water area.  This year the water park will expand with the addition of Ohana Bay, which we heard about previously when it was first announced.  At that point there wasn't much in the way of details aside from the fact that it will be an expansive play area filled with smaller water slides and plenty of places to relax.

Wild Adventures has been keeping us updated on the progress of Ohana Bay via a dedicated website for the project, which is where this photo comes from.  Sure it appears as though there is plenty of work left to be done, but quick progress is being made as each week passes.  More construction photos are being added to the website, and a few others can be seen from this news story.

The biggest amount of new detail comes from this layout of Ohana Bay, which was shared by the park.  In addition to the new amenities such as a Splash Deck play area, plenty of lounge space, restrooms and more, we now know a bit more about the slides and their names.

Alani Falls are three miniature racing slides, designed for small kids.  The purple slide seen above is for bigger kids, also racing slides, named Polu Plunge.  A set of small body slides, named Oma Oma O Racers are next in green.  Finally, the largest slides (each 200 feet in length and starting at 27 feet high) are Uli Uli Twisters, which can be enjoyed by both kids and have enough thrills for adults, too.

Ohana Bay is scheduled to open at Wild Adventures's Splash Island on April 1st.
