Baha Mar, one of the most luxurious resorts in the Bahamas, just opened a brand new water park – and it’s amazing. As if unwinding at Baha Mar wasn’t rewarding enough, adding the excitement and fun of an incredible new luxury water park ups its game even further. Baha Bay, a beachfront water park, delivers with an incredible array of activity options to take your day from fulfilling to fantastic.
How does the option of trying out 24 water slides sound? How about a dueling riptide water coaster, group raft rides, a 1,400-foot action river, a state-of-the-art surf simulator, specific little kid areas or a 500,000-gallon wave pool billed as “the most spectacular in the Caribbean?” The venue also includes the only outdoor casino gaming pavilion inside a water park.
What’s not to love? Here are the 10 best ways to enjoy Baha Bay.
Test your bravery on Thunderball or Devil’s Backbone
These water attractions are for the members of your crowd that like extreme thrill rides. Thunderball is a freefall slide that’s super-fast and delivers a plummet that goes straight down. The unforgettable rush and the bragging rights to this ride make it the biggest and best way to conquer Baha Bay.
On Devil’s Backbone, you’ll feel the floor drop out from under you and then you’ll shoot through looping and twisting tunnels that’ll make you scream. Are you up for the challenge?
Go head-to-head on a dueling slide
On Pirate’s Plunge, the dueling water slide, you race members of your group to see who comes out a winner. Start together at the top of the ride, but know that only the fastest emerge to a watery win at the end. Will it be you? Your family member? Your friend? Your gal pal?
Climb on up, get ready to race, and feel the thrill as you whisk away towards victory at the bottom.
Gather the gang for thrilling group raft rides
As if enjoying the slides alone weren’t enough, doing so with a group adds another level of fun to the mix. Gather your family or friends and laugh and spin and sail through these thrill rides together.
Cyclone Rush speeds around a huge swirling bowl, then heads back up, only to send you down a nearly vertical wall. Hammerhead rockets riders through tunnels and then up and around the walls of huge water saucers. Would you try these?
Careen down any one of the 24 water slides
There’s no shortage of options at Baha Bay when it comes to rides and slides. You’ll find something to fit all ages, ability levels and thrill preferences. Stick to one or two of your favorites or try to slide down all of them!
Some send you down in a tube, others let you simply ride on your own. Fast, slow, a straight ride, a winding ride, some with a big splash at the end, others you can do with a friend, ones that spin you around and some that are short and sweet – with so many options, there’s sure to be a winner in your mind.
Try your skills out on the FlowCurl surf simulator
Think you’re a surfer? Want to impress your friends and family? This is the attraction that lets you show off your surfing capabilities in grand style – or go down trying. It’s a state-of-the-art surf simulator that has a wave curl to let you try more daring moves and try to hang ten with the best of them.
Enjoy a ride on the action river
Journey through lush surroundings as you relax in your tube and enjoy the scenery. The river current moves you along through the turns, the splash areas and the “rapids.” Perfect for less adventurous water riders, or to take a relaxing break after all of the thrill rides, this is a great way to float your cares away.
Revel in beachside tranquility or relax in the infinity pools
Not all waterpark attendees want thrills and spills. For some, the ideal day is spent by an infinity pool, in a luxurious cabana or in a lounge chair with a view of the beach and the ocean. If this is your jam, you’re going to love that you can do that here all day long.
Make a wager at the world’s first outdoor casino located in a water park
Gamblers or wanna-be gamblers will enjoy a peek into this entertaining water park option that they won’t find at any other location. Place a bet, play some cards, throw the dice and have a bit of fun. You may even come out a little bit richer.
Play in all of the waves at Baha Bay Lagoon
Baha Bay Lagoon is the perfect place to play in the waves. The 500,000-gallon wave pool will have you feeling like you’re out in the ocean. When you’ve had enough, grab a lounge chair in the sand as you watch the fun.
Replenish your strength via the multiple food and beverage options
Recover from all of the splashing, swimming, sliding and sunning with delicious dining and drink options. From casual choices to more upscale options, you’ll be able to refresh and rejuvenate and get ready for more fun quickly and easily.
Baha Mar’s Baha Bay water park has all of the elements you need for the perfect vacation in the sun, sand, shade or surf.
