Big Surf Waterpark
Big Surf is the original outdoor waterpark at Lake of the Ozarks. Spend a day in the water with your family without needing a dock, boat, or lake access. With slides, pools, food, and loungers, every family member can find their happy place.
Adventure seekers can ride the slides all day. The Challenger Flumes are 300 foot slides that let you race your buddy to the end. Climb into the yellow slide if you want to see the sun while you slide. Choose the blue slide if you dare, because it's fully enclosed and you'll be sliding all the way down in the dark. Adults can hold a little one in their lap in the yellow slide, making it a family friendly slide option.
The Space Bowl shoots you down a huge slide and into a literal bowl, where you spin in circles until you drop into the pool below. Then pick up a tube and head to the Rapids, where you can float gently down waterfalls, going from pool to pool. The newest ride, Zambezi falls, pushes you off into a half pipe to slide up the other side and back down again.
Not wanting to feel your stomach drop? There are plenty of options for you too. The 4 foot deep activity pool has activities like a basketball goal to keep the kids playing. The Lazy River is perfect for sitting back and floating in circles until the sun sets.
Everybody loves the wave pool where you can float on tubes or free swim. Watch out when the whistle blows though- 3 foot waves are coming soon! This pool is also zero-entry, making it perfect for little toes just learning to walk. Little kids can explore Splash Island too, with a water depth of 6 to 18 inches and lots of activities to keep their little bodies busy. Changing areas are available to help you take care of your little ones as well.
Take a break from all the fun to refuel at one a snack shack or the Surfside Grill. You can also rent a cabana for a centralized location for the family to enjoy together. Lockets and life jackets can also be rented on-site.
If you're looking for a deal, Big Surf offers their visitors a big discount for entering the park after 3pm. Seasons passes are the way to go if you plan on visiting more than three times in a year.
