When you’re tired of the sand and your kids have that “now what?” look on their faces head for the Ocean Breeze Waterpark just five minutes from the Virginia Beach strip.
Kids 12 and under will love this very fun water park that boasts 16 water slides, a one million gallon wave pool and an exciting Jungle Falls. The littlest kids have been kept in mind too with rides created just for them: Little Amazon (an easy, lazy river), Buccaneer Bay Water Playground (specifically created for the 48 inch and under crowd) and the Silly Slides (a trio of slides that plop kids into a shallow pool. Best of all parents can ride too!).
Children can ride in front of their parents on kiddie caverns and Grape Escape. Families of small children can play together in Buccaneer Bay, the Water Playground and the Runway Bay Wave Pool.
Water shoes are allowed on the rides and are a smart idea for protecting little (and big!) feet and toes.
For the quietest time to visit get to Ocean Breeze on Monday mornings when tourists are still at the beach. Friday and Sunday evening are also quiet times to visit.
Important to note: Cabanas and chocolate-covered frozen bananas sell out fast.
