Time to cool off? Well, come take a plunge at The Pawnee Plunge Water Park. This water park features a full-day of fun for the entire family. Explore 7 acres of action-packed adventure, activities and water features with everything from an Interactive Aquadek, Splash Pad Area, Lazy River to an Aligator Alley and of course slides of all sizes and shapes. From mild to wild – there’s something for everyone!

Take a chilling plunge down the Inner Tube Slide or a more invigorating plunge down the three 360 degree turns of the Triple Threat Slide. How about a thrilling ride down the Super Speed Slide or go all out for a thrilling plummet down the darkened slide and a couple of spins around the Splash Bowl before you plunge into the 8-ft. deep catch basin.

Too slippery for your taste? Well, sit back and relax in a sun-soaked chaise lounger, relax and read a good book or watch the fun-filled action that abounds. Head to the Sand Play Area where mixing sand and water can lead to the castle of your dreams or sharpen your digging skills with the backhoe digger. If you need a quick chill or to just chill out, the full-service concession stand offers everything from smoothies to hamburgers.

So, come experience water fun that is sure to delight the young and the young at heart.  If you leave here and didn’t get wet, you didn’t experience all there is to offer at the Pawnee Plunge Water Park!
