A relatively small outdoor water park, Kentucky Splash nonetheless is a great place to cool down and find watery fun—especially during the state's notoriously hot and sticky summers. The municipal park is run by the city of Williamsburg.
You're not going to find major attractions found at larger, more full-featured water parks such as a water coaster, a funnel ride, or a bowl ride. But you will find some of the usual suspects, including water slides, a 900-foot-long lazy river, and a wave pool. One of the park’s towers has three slides, two of which require tubes, and one of which is a body slide. One of the slides is enclosed. A second tower has two intersecting body slides that twist around each other.
Kentucky Splash also offers an interactive water play center. Geared more to younger kids, Tadpole Island has two small slides, water cannons, a climbing net, a tunnel, and a dump bucket. The shallow pool at the base of the center is ideal for little kids.
