A new $46m waterpark featuring the latest slides and attractions is being developed in Powells Point, North Carolina.

Slated to open in summer 2017, H2OBX will concentrate on bringing unique guest experiences, including a FlowRider surfing simulator, two wave pools, an adventure lagoon, family attractions and a host of high-speed slides.

“We are very excited to be working… to deliver a world-class waterpark that will deliver an exciting new entertainment option for vacationers,” said Arthur Berry, spokesman for H2OBX developer, Aquatic Development Group.

“H2OBX will further benefit the area through pre-and post-opening job creation and draw additional tourism to the area.”
