Posted by Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure Park on Saturday, 27 May 2017

Although it’s not a hotel, people who’d like to visit a lazy river should go to Big Kahuna’s, which is a huge water park located in Destin. The park has over 40 water attractions, but that’s not all you can find there, they also have a couple of thrill rides, as well as a mini golf course. Water attractions include interesting slides for all ages and heights, some of them also with tubes; there are a couple of pools, like for example the tropical oasis for the youngest, a lazy river called “Humunga River”, which is not a type of river you expect - this one takes you through currents and waves around the lush island of Crocodile Flats.

You’ll find there also a couple of kiddie rides without any height or weight requirements. Thrill seekers will be happy with the adventure park, where they can catch a wave or try a sky coaster. Remember that children under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult. Daily admission is 44.99 USD for people over 48" and 34.99 USD for children under 48", but visit their web page for some discounts!
