Bahama Beach is a medium-sized water park with a tropical Bahamas theme. It offers a decent collection of water slides and other ways to get wet and chill out.
Don't expect to find any of the flashy, thrilling attractions found at major parks such as a funnel ride or a water coaster. But you will find Bermuda Triangle, a tower with three twisting body slides, and Riptide Slide and Bahama Bullet, slides you can ride in single- or two-passenger tubes.
The Tortuga Express is a multi-lane mat racing ride. Water Wars is a water balloon game.
Those looking for more laid-back fun could float around the Calypso Cooler lazy river. Younger visitors would want to check out the Coconut Cove interactive water play area. It includes a dump bucket, small slides, sprayers, ladders, and other ways to get wet and have fun.
Bahama Beach used to be called Hawaiian Falls Water Park. The city of Dallas bought it, and it is now a municipal facility that is part of the parks and aquatics departments.
There is a reduced price for children (under 48"). 2 and under are free. Group rates and season passes are available. There is a discount for Dallas residents. For additional fees, visitors can rent cabanas, tables, and umbrellas.
Birthday party packages that include park admission and food are available. The park also offers pavilions for rent that can accommodate groups up to 520 people for special events.
