Zoombezi Bay opens May 21 with new surround-sound water slide


While the temperatures have been down recently, another sure sign that summer is approaching arrives this weekend.

Zoombezi Bay opens with a sneak peak weekend this Saturday with a new, first-of-its-kind, water slide.

New this year is SoundSurfer, where guests can listen to music of their choice and see a light show while riding the longest slide in the park.

SoundSurfer is the first slide in the country to incorporate light and audio effects.

Also new this year is the lineup of Dive-In Movies -- an outdoor theatre at the wave pool. You can view a schedule of movies by clicking here.

Following the sneak-peek weekend, Zoombezi Bay will be open daily from May 26 through Aug. 21 and then on weekends through Labor Day.
