5 reasons why you can't miss Waterville USA

Ready to get wet and wild? Head over to Gulf Shores, Alabama for Waterville USA, one of the best waterparks in the Southeast! With slippery rides ranging from lazy rivers to exhilarating wave pools, you and the entire family will have quite the adventure.

5 reasons why you can't miss Waterville USA

While the white-sand beaches along Alabama's Gulf Coast are second to none, nothing compares to careening down a gigantic water slide or bodyboarding on continuously perfect waves. At Waterville USA, located in the heart of Gulf Shores, you have dozens of rides to choose from, and you don't even have to get wet on some of them.

The kids will beg you to go. But if you need more reasons to spend a few hours or a whole day at Waterville USA, here are a few highlights that may lure you:

Fun Depot

This area of the park is perfect for the little ones in
your life. With rides suited for the youngest
adventurers - including merry-go-rounds, a mini train, inflatables and a bungee trampoline - your kids will have more than enough to keep them entertained
and happy.

WaWa World

Your kids will be in wet-and-wild heaven at WaWa world, which features smaller slides and play areas
that are specially designed for little ones under 48” tall. Here, they can pretend to be swashbuckling pirates and meet new friends along the way.


Are you a blossoming surfer? The Flowrider allows you to perfect your skills without having to worry about whether the surf is up for the day. This pool never stops making rideable waves.

The Starcade

Don't feel like getting wet? Take a break from the water for a few hours. At The Starcade, grandparents to young children can compete against each other with fun-filled games like skee ball and Wacky Gator.

Screamin' Demon

This ride's definitely not for the faint of heart - and it requires the brave ones to be at least 42 inches tall. Once you pass the height test, you'll climb your way up to the top of the slide and swiftly make your way down through tubes that lead to a steep 60-foot drop at the very last leg. You won't be able to hold back your screams as you zip your way down!

Now that you know more about the fantastic fun that awaits, be sure to add Waterville USA to your Gulf Shores vacation plans. And bring your camera to capture the non-stop smiles on your kids' faces.
