Big Surf Water Park - Family Fun Event

Did you know that Big Surf Waterpark opened on October 24, 1969? In 1965, four years before the “surf center” opened, it was just an idea thought of by a man named Phil Dexter.  Dexter took that idea and in 1966 built the first model of his wave machine…in his backyard! Big Surf Waterpark is home to America’s original wave pool and features over a dozen additional rides for all ages! The famed wave pool is the third-largest in the world, holding 2.5 million gallons of water.

This will be a great event for all ages in hot summer time. So grab your towel, wear your swim suit and have fun all day with your international family. Please read Park Rules and other information:

    Nice to see old friends and make new ones. Thanks Yu for organizing the event. Really appreciated your energy and trying to "herd" the group in the large park, and giving us company for a beer. Look forward for more outdoor group events.

    Missed Işık's bright smile. Hope your BF if recovering well . Best Wishes.
