All-day lockers and shower facilities are available, and tubes and towels can be rented. It's possible to use your own floatation devices if required, but they must be approved by park staff first.

It features all of the usual Water-Park attractions including a meandering relaxing tube ride around the park (Lazy River), a thrilling 7-story water slide (Der Stuka), various tube rides and slides including an all-enclosed 500 foot dark tube ride (The Black Hole), and a 6-story family inner-tube ride (Bubba Tub). The Surge is a 600 feet 5-passenger tube ride.
