Water Park Fun at CoCo Key Resort in Orlando

Slides and Rides for Hotel Guests and Day Pass Visitors

CoCo Key Water Resort Orlando
••• CoCo Key Water Resort Orlando

CoCo Key Water Resorts was a chain of indoor water park hotels with locations throughout the U.S. The Orlando CoCo Key was the first one in Florida. The chain filed for bankruptcy, although most of the water park resorts, including the one in Orlando, remain open and are run as independent businesses.

Unlike the other locations, the Florida CoCo Key features an outdoor water park instead of a climate-controlled indoor park. About half of the park, however, is covered by a canopy that opens to the outside at one end. It offers lots of shade and allows guests to use some of the attractions during inclement weather, such as one of Orlando's notorious afternoon showers.

CoCo Key's other Key West-themed water parks are located in northern climes such as the Midwest and New England and offer visitors a simulated Florida getaway. The Key West theme, however, is right at home in Orlando. Rather than offering a mid-winter respite to frozen New Englanders, the Orlando CoCo Key offers Florida visitors some water park fun.

The highlight of CoCo Key is its medium-sized waterpark. It's missing signature attractions found at larger water park resorts, such as surfing rides or water coasters. It does, however, offer many of the usual water park suspects including body slides and tube slides with names such as Boomerango and Surfer Splash.

It also offers the Parrot's Perch interactive water play center with smaller slides, sprayers, and a tipping bucket. A zero-entry toddler pool helps keep very young guests and their parents happy, while a dedicated teen pool provides a place for tweens and teens to call their own. Without major thrill rides, however, CoCo Key is geared mostly to families with kids under the age of 12. 

Other activities include an arcade with redemption games. The water park's colorful Key West theme extends to the hotel side of the facility. Other hotel features include  a fitness center and complimentary transportation to Universal Orlando and SeaWorld.
