Things to Do: Visit Water World in Dothan

Water World in Dothan

There’s a hot spot to cool off now that’s open for weekend fun before the summer rush. Visit Water World in Dothan to slide into refreshing fun as the weather warms up this month!

What to Expect

Water World in Dothan is another way to say, “family fun!” The municipal water park officially opened for the season last weekend. Ride three-foot waves every 10 minutes in the 450,000-gallon Rip Tide Wave Pool once again.

Twisted up about which of the three loopy body slides to pick? Relax, and slide down them all! To clarify, the Twister Slides feature a speed slide, closed-flume slide and open-flume slide. Did we mention they all start from a 40-foot tower?

Flush the week away with a weekend ride down the Storm Bowl. Literally swirl around and down the eye of the storm. There’s also the Great White for the braver water park fans. It’s described as a “steep, chilling, high-velocity” slide.

Need a minute? Meet you at the “beach” in front of the wave pool. Chill out and soak up the sun. Maybe get a bite at the concession stand too!

Don’t forget Kids Cove, featuring water cannons, kid-friendly slides, tippy buckets and more!
