One of WaTiki® Waterpark’s most popular features is the tubular waterslide ripping through our onsite full-service bar, Sliders Bar & Grill!

3. Waterpark Lighting System
WaTiki® features a fully customizable waterpark lighting system that can light up the entire park in any color. And to top it off – every individual light is capable of being operated separately! The lights can also perform a variety of functions such as making them twinkle in any color, any pattern, and setting them on a timer to do so.

4. Cleanliness & Customer Service
At WaTiki® Waterpark, we pride ourselves on cleanliness, safety and providing world-class service to our Guests. After all, it’s our top priority! When visiting the waterpark, Guests can be sure they are well taken care of, and that the waterpark reflects the highest standard of safety and cleanliness. Our empathetic and inclusive associates promptly meet guest expectations every day and are highly trained by an on-site licensed Red Cross CPR instructor. And while most waterparks close 2-3 times a week for cleaning, WaTiki® cleans during the overnight hours to avoid shutting the waterpark down. This means our Guests can swim and splash even longer.

5. Slide into an Upgraded Experience
Recent experiential upgrades have been made and WaTiki® is lookin’ fresh! The entire resort underwent a complete transformation to better enhance the Guest experience with resurfaced pools, slides, and flooring throughout the waterpark. Guests can leave their wallet behind with our brand new chipped ‘Connect&Go’ RFID wristband system. The system can be used for locker rentals, TikiCash for food and souvenirs, arcade credits, and day-of waterpark entry for a totally cashless experience.
