We're making waves in 2020 with three exciting additions to our water park! Our newly redesigned area, Coconut Shores, provides the perfect place for families to cool down and have fun. Kids of all ages can explore their way to the top of Lighthouse Landing, a 45-ft tall multi-level aqua play structure featuring hundreds of interactive elements for a splashtastic time. The little ones can find their own piece of paradise at Sand Dune Lagoon, a 3,000 square foot wave pool with playful 1-foot tall waves and interactive splash elements. And, a new dining experience showcasing a variety of flavors designed by our executive chef will bring families together for a relaxing meal.

This looks awesome! I've always loved these giant slide complexes. A kiddie wave pool is a genius idea too.

Thinking about a last minute trip to KD this weekend before my kid starts school. We have a platinum pass from Carowinds this year since we visited CP earlier in the summer and thought why not try and take advantage of the free admission. The problem is we would only be able to be at the park on Saturday and of course I'm worried about the crowds. Would they be unbearable this late in the summer? What kind of wait times for the major coasters can I expect?

I was thinking about taking an impromptu road trip with my son to KD this weekend and take advantage of having a Cedar Fair platinum pass. The problem is we would be at the park on Saturday. Any idea if the lines for the major coasters will be horrible or if I would have to buy a fastlane+?

At the park this past Sunday, it appears work on the old wave pool is happening very carefully. The concrete along the drain of the zero entry was torn open to create a trough. Temporary 2x4 railings are affixed around the mechanical room, and there is orange spray paint along walls at a single elevation.

The new wave pool is crowded on just moderate days, so hopefully the old one is just getting a re-model.
