Rides and Attractions

Whether your idea of fun in the sun includes splashing in shallow waters orKalani Towers, White Water, Branson Water Park riding the tides for a liquid adrenaline rush, you're sure to find a cool way to stay entertained at White Water. 

KaPau Plummet, which topped all sorts of must-ride lists when it opened in 2014, is one of White Water’s most exhilarating attractions. This ride is not for the faint-hearted! Two 245-foot waterslides send riders on a pulse-pounding free fall from 40-feet in the air, resulting in an epic plunge.

Challenge friends and family in an ultimate race to the bottom on favorites like Kalani Towers, Waikiki Wave and Pipeline Plunge. Each ride features thrilling waterslides, dramatic dips and drops, and the opportunity to claim bragging rights. If competition isn’t your thing, grab the gang and head to Ohana Falls — you'll find rafts big enough to fit the whole family and excitement that will keep you coming back for more.

Hangout in the Surf’s Up Wave Pool, perfect for floating, swimming and playing. Just be aware that fresh waves come everytime a bell rings. While four-foot breakers are ideal for body surfing, those who wish to sunbathe should retreat until the surf calms, or grab a tube and head to White Water’s longest ride, Aloha River at Hula Hula Bay. This ride stretches more than the length of two-and-a-half football fields. Its calm current and waterside flora transport visitors to a remote island landscape. If you have small kiddos, Coconut Cove and Splashaway Cay are both family friendly areas of the park that offer hours of sun-soaked entertainment tailored especially for the little ones.
