Top reasons to visit Hurricane Harbor this year

There are plenty of great reasons to visit the water park this year. Hurricane Harbor has done a fantastic job of ensuring that there’s really something there for everyone. Below are a few of the top reasons to visit one of the best water parks Peoria AZ has to offer.

The awesome rides

The number one reason to visit Hurricane Harbor is, of course, the rides. Do you like giant slides? If so, the Tornado, Bahama Blaster, or even the Bonzai Pipeline might be for you. Are you looking for a ride to go on with the family? The Big Kahuna or the Wahoo Racers could be right up your alley. If you’re looking for something a little more sedate, the Adventure River or Hurricane Bay might be more your speed. There are even two areas just for little ones; Splash Island and the Soak’em Playground ensuring that everyone in your party will find a way to have a great time at the water park.

Birthday parties

If you or someone you love has a birthday party this summer, you should absolutely consider having it at Hurricane Harbor. Not only will you get discounted tickets to one of the water parks Peoria AZ residents love, but you’ll also get a host of other benefits. Those who have birthday parties at the park get lunch, a dedicated seating area, free soda, and even their own birthday host to coordinate the event.

One of the best things about having a party at Hurricane Harbor Phoenix is the lack of a time limit. You get access to the park just like any other guest, so you don’t have to hurry the party-goers along. If you are looking to have a party that lasts all day, you’ll want to check out the birthday options at Hurricane Harbor.

Membership and season passes benefits

If you live in the North Peoria area, you should look into the benefits of having either a Hurricane Harbor membership or a season pass. Season passes are a great way to ensure that your family will be able to go to Hurricane Harbor almost any time that it’s open for one flat fee.

For those that want to upgrade their experience, memberships are a great option. These memberships allow you to save money, bring friends, and even get free parking. Best of all, the membership level allows you to visit any of the Six Flags parks in the nation without having to pay an extra fee. If you’re a fan of theme parks, you absolutely must consider the perks of a membership.

Dive-in movies

The drive-in movie might be a thing of the past, but Hurricane Harbor has brought in the next best thing – the dive-in. Dive-in movies are fantastic family films shown on an outdoor screen, with the seating replaced by pool floats. It’s one of the most relaxing ways to watch a film, especially if you have young children. They can still play in the water while you take in an old favorite, or they can float with the family as a great movie for all ages plays.

Improved dining options

There has been a lot of effort to improve the menus at Hurricane Harbor. From great fast-dining options that will get you back in the water quickly to some truly unique 21-and-over spots, these new dining spots are terrific. There are still plenty of classics to be found, but some of the options available are almost worth a trip to the park just to give them a try.
