Princess Approved: Summer Waves Water Park in Jekyll Island

Summer Waves Water Park

Thank you to Summer Waves Water Park at Jekyll Island for partnering with me for this post.

A water park is the perfect way to beat the heat. We loved exploring this Summer Waves water park and the fun attractions they have for kids of all ages. Here are some of our favorites!

Shark Tooth Cove

Our favorite part of the park was Shark Tooth Cove. This zero entry, shallow pool with 360 degree seating is perfect for families with young kids. There were several small slides and lots of shooting water fountains. Both my preschooler and baby loved this area and I felt confident letting them play. There is also a height restriction to keep bigger kids out of this area.

Splash Pad

As a Florida family, we live at Splash Pads during the summer months. The Summer Waves splash pad was lots of fun. There was water spraying everywhere. With lots of space to play and a giant splashing bucket atop the tower, this was a great area to cool off.

Lazy River

No water park is complete without a lazy river. This was my preschooler’s favorite. She could have floated for hours. I loved that they had little tubes that were perfect for younger kids. The lazy river was perfectly paced and had lots of fun water falls to add more character and splash to the ride.

Frantic Atlantic Wave Pool

The wave pool was another favorite. This pool offered fun for the whole family whether it was holding the kids waist deep in the waves, or letting them stand themselves in the shallow end. The park also provided life jackets which fit my oldest daughter perfectly.

Tips for visiting Summer Waves Water Park

  • Arrive early and save a chair in the shade! There is tons of shaded seating around the park. Having a shaded lounge chair was perfect for when my kiddos needed to nap
  • Food isn’t allowed (except water & baby food) however, they have a nice picnic area by the parking lot and they do allow re-entry with a hand stamp
  • Wear plenty of sunscreen and bring shoes. The pavement can get hot! Wearing shoes between attractions will keep your feet from being too hot.
