Blastaway Beach

  • Amusement Park/Water Park

Updated 04/30/2014

Fodor's Review

If your kids get a thrill out of a simple waterslide, this may be the highlight of their vacation. It's an amazingly creative 15,000-square-foot section of the park dominated by a towering six-story sand castle that surpasses nearly everything a kid could expect. Adorned with flags and banners and surrounded by two pools that create an 85,000-gallon "moat," the castle is equipped with 15 slides and more than 160 soakers, water jets, waterfalls, water cannons, and huge buckets that fill and dump their contents on the guests below. All of this makes Blastaway Beach the best-equipped—not to mention largest—water playground in Florida. Even better, adults are welcome to join their kids in this splashtacular setting, but if you can't handle this much fun, rest easy: there's plenty of seating amidst lush, tropical landscaping. Come when you need a break but the kids still have energy.
