No one goes away unhappy (or totally dry!) at this family-favorite water park
It’s easy to see why the Whale’s Tail Waterpark is New England’s favorite water adventure park: There is something to get everyone excited. Thrill-seekers will flock to the dual speed water slides of The Plunge and the bobsled-style Harpoon Express course. Little ones love the gentle figure-eight course of the Beluga Boggin and the perfect wading water and fountains of Whale Harbor. Families have a blast at Shipwreck Island with massive bucket dumps and interactive multilevel sprayers. And everyone can unwind tubing down the lazy river of Jonah’s Escape or soaking in the 85-foot heated pool and giant hot tubs at Castaway Cove. There’s a full-service restaurant as well as a pizza and subs spot, a beach bar and private cabanas.
