Goodbye, Splashwater Kingdom. Hello, Hurricane Harbor! Six Flags Great Escape has just announced the rebranding of its popular outdoor waterpark — and that’s not all. With the name change comes a major expansion of the park, from all-new rides and attractions to a tropical dining venue. Here’s what you can expect next summer at The Great Escape!
New Season, New Waterpark
While Splashwater Kingdom is no more, the changes coming to the waterpark are definitely cause for excitement. Following a 14,000 square foot expansion, Hurricane Harbor will feature:
- Expanded seating areas with shaded zones,
- Colorful tropical theming,
- A new food location, and
- Two new water attractions: Bucket Blasters and Shipwreck Cove.
Guests will have a blast spinning in Bucket Blasters’ water barrels, each one equipped with water guns to splash friends and bystanders. Shipwreck Cove will feature an activity pool with water sprays, geysers, and fountains, as well as shaded seating and new dining options!
“Six Flags is a world-renowned leader in thrills and innovation and we are excited to now wear the name Hurricane Harbor,” Six Flags Great Escape Resort President Eric Gilbert said in a statement. “Hurricane Harbor will have a completely different look and feel including imaginative, new theming, and a myriad of park enhancements designed to delight guests of all ages.”
