I follow the park on all it's social media sites. OWA closes quite frequently due to weather. It seems like it's averaging about once a week over the last few months, and have on occasion seen it more than once in a week. I've noted this because I've never seen a park post so much that it's closed/closing early for inclement weather. I know they can't control the weather, but it's an observation. I would suggest anyone planning to visit to keep their eyes glued to the weather, especially if they are travelling there from great distances.
Coaster Count: 125
Top 12:
1-Steel Vengeance...2-Fury 325...3-Maverick...4-Millennium Force...5-Storm Chaser...6-Mako...
7-Diamondback...8-Kraken...9-Montu...10-Banshee...11-Afterburn...12-Cheetah Hunt

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I don't work at the park, So I can spoil the addition (And By Spoil, I mean post a news article)

FOLEY, Ala. (WPMI) — The Park at OWA has announced the opening of a "cool" attraction just in time for summer:


Summer has officially began and there is now a new, exciting way too cool down! The Park at OWA recently unveiled its newest, family friendly addition: the “Wacky Waters” splash pad. As part of OWA’s 520-acre resort development, The Park at OWA is a gated amusement park featuring 22 thrilling attractions. Its newest addition comes just in time for the summer sunshine on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Wacky Waters – a 9,500 ft. splash pad – opened over Memorial Day weekend. The splash pad’s water-themed amenities include a 20 ft. tall dump bucket, a towering “coconut tree” that showers guests with 54 gallons of water per minute, a 6 ft. tall water dome, and more than 15 different attractions and sprayers to keep you soaked for hours. For those familiar with The Park at OWA, Wacky Waters sits on the southwest side of the 14-acre park close to the children’s attractions.

“Our guests spoke about recommended improvements to the amusement park and we listened,” stated Kristin Hellmich, OWA Director of Marketing/PR. “The Wacky Waters splash pad is one of several new amenities created to help our guests beat the summer heat. If you haven’t visited The Park at OWA lately, come on out! You will definitely see a lot of new improvements we recently installed to further enhance the guest experience.”

Wacky Waters offers park-goers a chance to cool off from the summer heat, complete with a cabana-style area for parents to relax. Bring your own towels and sundries, which can be stored in onsite fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. Or guests can also purchase supplies onsite such as towels, sunscreen, and swim diapers. Being centrally located in The Park at OWA, guests can enjoy splashing around for a while before drying off just in time to hop over to the Rollin’ Thunder coaster for some full-force wind action.

The splash pad is not the only new addition to The Park at OWA this summer season. A variety of outdoor structures and amenities have been added to enhance the guest experience such as an air-conditioned quick-serve dining area, shaded resting areas throughout the park, misters, fans, and even sun-shades above several of the rides.


A Combination of a water attraction and sun shades above several of the rides sound like great additions. Water cause it probably gets hot and Shade to keep some rides running during rain storms.

I'd seen a couple posts about OWA not doing so hot with absent crowds and an abundance of closed shops. Has anyone visited lately?
