Families love to go swimming, enjoy water sports or simply sit back and watch the waves break onto the beach. There are plenty of fun activities like miniature golf, Ferris wheel rides, water parks and carnival games. On Thursday nights in July and August, free festivities along the boardwalk include face painting, musicians playing, magicians performing and karaoke music.

The Cliff Dive slide plunges five stories in three seconds and the park’s newest slide, called WipeOut! is a six-lane racer slide.
