Our list of activities for Arizona family fun includes water parks because of our extreme summer heat. Enjoying the wave pool, riding dozens of daring water slides, and relaxing at Big Surf water park is a favorite way to spend warm summer days.
Big Surf water park has dozens of slides for the entire family to enjoy. My five year old daughter is tall enough to enjoy almost all of the attractions at the park. Areas for smaller children include Bora Bora Bay and Captain Cook’s Landing. Children under 48 inches can drop into Bora Bora Bay from the Otter Slides. My daughter has so much fun sliding down the colorful slides while my husband and I wait for her in the pool below.
Captain Cook’s Landing is an area for toddlers to play in shallow water. The big seal and frog slides add to the fun in the themed children’s pool.
Big Surf’s wave pool is America’s original and features a big wave every three minutes.
With so many slides, a wave pool, and fun play areas, a day at Big Surf water park is a blast! After a couple of hours playing in the water we take a break for a cool drink and lunch. The concession area features many different food options including quick snacks and kid sized meals.
Covered seating is available to enjoy snacks and take a break from the sun. Lockers are available in several sizes with different price options. Credit cards and cash can be used for locker rentals with access during your entire visit to the park.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online at the Big Surf website or at the main gate. Buy online to save 10%. The park is open everyday of the week: Monday – Saturday 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday 11 am – 6pm. Enjoy a fun family day at Big Surf water park!
Be sure to pack your water park bag essentials for kids to have a fun family day.
