Are We There Yet?
After recently being named one of the five friendliest parks in the world, Alabama Splash Adventure is adding a new kids slide complex and interactive play structure which will debut in May 2018 and feature 5 colorful slides. Some slides will offer gentle, yet exciting hills, while others will offer twists and turns. The slides all will empty into shallow water ensuring a safe experience for riders. The interactive play structure will offer various water features that will spray in all directions and provide a fun place for kids to cool off. The play area will feature “zero-depth” water to maximize the safety of guests. “Our guests have been requesting a new water attraction and we are listening to our guests,” says Dan Koch, President of Alabama Splash Adventure. “This new attraction will be perfect for the children and families that visit Alabama Splash Adventure, and will help us increase our waterpark capacity as we continue to expand.” In addition, the Park will add additional seating and new cabanas around the attraction so guests can stay cool.
The Park is turning to the public to decide on a name for the new attraction. A naming contest will be held and the winning entry will receive four complimentary season passes for the 2018 season. Names can be submitted at www.AlabamaSplash.com.
The new attraction marks the latest addition from the Koch family, who purchased the Park in 2014. The owners have introduced 10 new attractions as well as free Wi-Fi, free sunscreen, free parking, free tubes, and free unlimited soft drinks. The new attraction is only a part of the $10 million in capital improvements the Koch family has brought to Alabama Splash Adventure. The park is located where I 20/59 and I 459 meet at exit 110, just minutes from downtown Birmingham.
