H2OBX Waterpark Is Back to Make a Splash

May 19, 2021

It’s time to get wet again! One of Currituck County’s favorite attractions –H2OBX Waterpark – is reopening May 29th. H2OBX plans to make a big splash this summer, welcoming locals and visitors alike. 

If you purchased a season pass for 2020 and were unable to use it due to the park’s closure, it will be honored for the 2021 season. Visit Guest Services on your first visit to get your new pass.  You can also come to the Administration Office between the hours of 9am-4pm Monday to Friday.

H2OBX has always been committed to a safe guest and team member experience and, with that in mind, they’ve taken several necessary steps to elevate their already-high standards. For the latest information and FAQs regarding COVID-19 and your visit to the waterpark, visit their Safety page

Conveniently located at 8526 Caratoke Highway in Powells Point, NC, the waterpark is minutes from the Wright Memorial Bridge, the northern gateway to the Outer Banks. The waterpark spans 20 acres and boasts 30 attractions, including eight thrill rides, seven family rides, and seven rides for kids. Height restrictions vary from 36 inches to 48 inches, but there’s plenty of wet fun for every member of the family, including toddlers.

Top attractions at H2OBX Waterpark

  • Be sure to check out the CAT-5 Wave Pool. You’ll feel just like you’re at the beach with its ocean-simulated current, tide and waves.
  • Bring some energy for the Deep Six Adventure Lagoon. This revolutionary attraction includes an inflatable obstacle course, a climbing wall and lilypads course. Kids of all ages will sleep well after playing in this water wonderland!

Family tips for visiting H2OBX Waterpark
Consider renting a cabana if you plan to stay all day. The waterpark has 50 private cabanas located throughout the park with first-class amenities and luxury guest seating and a private server with push-button service. Cabanas run $149.99 for up to eight guests or $249.99 for up to 12 people. This is an ideal option for family members who need their own space to take a break from the sun or large groups who want to create a central meeting place. The cabanas can be reserved online when you purchase your tickets or at the Lifeguard Shop upon arrival.

Come early.
To make the most of your day, get there when the park opens at 10 a.m. The park stays open until 6 p.m., and is open daily through August 22. After that, it will remain open on weekends through September 19.  A twilight option at a reduced rate is also available after 3pm each operating day.

Stay hydrated.
You will want to stay hydrated while having fun in the hot Carolina sun.  You can bring in an empty personal plastic or metal water bottle. There are two drinking fountains just inside the entrance where you can fill them.

Bring your appetite.
No outside snacks or food are allowed inside the waterpark. However, the park’s restaurants offer a variety of dining options from Carolina BBQ and fish tacos to healthy wraps and homemade burgers. Save room for funnel cake and ice cream at Dune Devil Desserts. If over 21 years of age you can enjoy one of the 12 local brews or wine options from Currituck’s Sanctuary Vineyards at Flyboys.

Buy your tickets in advance.
You can purchase tickets online and they are good for any operating day during 2021. The Four For Fun pass (4 tickets for same day admission) is a savings of $28 but only available online.  You can also purchase at the ticket window.  Local and military discounts are also available with proper identification.  

If your group consists of 15 or more people, pricing starts at $24.99 and tickets can be purchased online or contact the group sales office via email at [email protected].  Meal plans are great add-on options at $8.99 + tax.
