A-Z Guide to Water Country USA Williamsburg
Super-fast. Super-fun. Aquazoid plunges more than 850-feet down an enclosed pipeline, twisting, turning and even encountering waterfalls before a final splashdown.
B: Big Daddy Falls
Brave the rapids of Big Daddy Falls with your family. The ride is filled with curves, tunnels and drops deigned to mimic a wild whitewater rafting adventure.
C: Colossal Curl
The park’s newest ride is a mega-slide that packs a punch. Start with a swirl down a funnel, before being whisked through a colorful slide tunnel right into a massive wave.

H: Hubba Hubba Highway
The Hubba Hubba Highway is an amped-up lazy river. Dotted with geysers and super soakers, the current pushes you along so this ride is anything but lazy.
Sometimes nothing cools you down like an ice cold beer. Launch Pad Pub and Subs serves draught beer and wine, so ahead—indulge!

Designed for little ones, this play area has fun fountains, splash zones, and scaled-down water slides in the shape of sea creatures.
L: Life Vests
If you’re concerned about water safety, calm your worries with the knowledge Water Country USA Williamsburg provides free life vests in a variety of sizes. You can also bring your own, but they must be coast guard approved.
Board a high-speed surf boggan, then slide down this ultra-long zoom flume. The steep banks of the flume make it feel like you’re flying before you splash down into a three-foot deep pool.

Super speeds are the signature of Nitro Racer. This slide ride is a six-lane highway of bodysurfing fun, as you travel 320-feet in less than four seconds.
