Our family visits OBX each year for vacation and we are super excited for our family trip this year because H2OBX opened for their first season! They have 30 rides, slides and other fun water related attractions as well as resort-style amenities. My kids LOVE water parks so we surprised them this year and spent our first day at at H2OBX!
I love that H2OBX has a plethora of chairs throughout the park. It makes it a lot easier to keep an eye out on the kids and soak up some sun at the same time! To make your trip even more relaxing, they offer private cabanas(either the standard cabana that fits up to 8 people or the deluxe which can fit up to 12 people) as an add on as well as lockers that you can rent at several locations throughout the park!
Of course both of my kids loved the wave pool. I dont know what it is about those things, but they could swim in it all day! Another favorite of theirs is the lazy river. H2OBX's lazy river is known as Teach's Tides Adventure River Relax and is 1,000 feet of a relaxing ride while floating over a gentle current.
Kaleigh is my daredevil so of course she had to ride the Paradise PlungeGo! It is a 9-story free-fall slide where she was dropped from the launch capsule, 90 feet up, and she did a near free-fall before being launched into a 360-degree horizontal translucent enclosed loop! Whew!!
We always enjoying riding together as a family so the Rogue WaveCatch was our favorite raft ride of the day!
What I love about H2OBX is the variety of food options they have! From wraps, pizzas, BBQ and burgers to chicken tenders, sandwiches, nachos and fish tacos, they have something for everyone! And lets not forget the amazing desserts including funnel cakes, icecream and shakes as well as draft beers(12 on tap including local craft brews!) wine and specialty drinks! We settled on chicken tenders with fries, nachos and icecream! :)
Below is a map of the park to give you a better idea on what they have! We had such a fun time and I think it may become another thing we add to the bucket list for our yearly vacation at OBX!
