A new waterpark is coming to the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Known as the Island Waterpark, the destination will feature water slides, a lazy river, pools, as well as retail space, food and drink outlets, and a room for private parties.

There will also be parallel slides for racing and a retractable glass-paned roof to allow the waterpark to be open all year round.

The site will also be home to an adult area, serving alcoholic beverages, alongside massages and manicures.

The 103,000 sq. ft. waterpark has an investment of $100m.

Marty Small, Mayor of Atlantic City, commented: “We need to diversify our entertainment offerings.

“We’ve all heard stories of water parks coming here to Atlantic City and for whatever reason, it didn’t happen,” Small continued.

The new waterpark is due to open by Memorial Day weekend 2023.
