For more than 35 years, Rapids Water Park has been one of the best places to go in Florida for exciting water slides. It’s an ideal spot for family fun just outside West Palm Beach. Fort Rapids uses a western theme throughout the complex. The water park has displays and attractions that highlight the wild west.
The enormous park is known for its many water slides – there are 35 in all, from those best suited to adrenaline junkies to some more family-friendly slides and rides. The park calls its most thrilling rides its “Biggest” attractions, including rafting through a Tornado slide in complete darkness and six slide lane`s, excellent for racing.
The water slides start indoors and then twist and turn outside of the side of the building before coming back inside. This makes for more room in the facility and a great advertisement as you drive by the hotel.
Other attractions are designed for all ages, including several that are specifically meant to be kid-friendly. There is a large wave pool, a lazy river, kid-sized slides, and obstacle courses in which guests need to walk on floating objects to cross pools. Also, they have an “Activity pool” which is an area for swimming and water basketball for older kids and the “Rascal Roundup” is a nearby play water structure with water cannons, dumping buckets and water slides for kids as well.
Overall, getting away and spending quality time together as a family is what this place is all about. When you are staying at the hotel, you can swim before your check in time and also enjoy the water park after you check out. It is highly recommended that you bring a hairdryer if you plan on using the pool after you check out. Oh, and there are also lockers available for rent.
