At just over 53,000 square feet, H2Oooohh! at Split Rock Resort is a medium-sized indoor waterpark. There are larger parks in the Poconos, including the enormous Kalahari Pocono Mountains (which is one of the biggest indoor water parks in the world). But H2Oooohh! (yes, that's the name, including the extra "Os" and the exclamation mark) has a decent assortment of attractions and things to do.
Among its highlights is the Komodo Dragon, a FlowRider boogie board and stand-up surfing wave-making ride. Other features include a family raft ride, a large wave pool, the Amazon Blast water slides, the Lava Springs hot tubs, and the usual complement of slides and water attractions. Younger kids will enjoy attractions designed specifically for them such as Jungle Falls and Leapin' Lizards, two play areas
