Lion Country Safari Offers Fun for the Whole Family

By: Robert S Weinroth

A new attraction opened today at Lion Country Safari.

The Safari Splash waterpark expansion i celebrated its grand opening as county and municipal leaders joined in the celebration. The water park offers visitors a great addition to the walk-through park.

The new 10,568 square foot splash area was a year and a half in the making, extending the 4,000 square foot play area originally opened in 2005.

The zebra striped Safari Splash includes several levels of slides, spray guns, water wheels and rain bars.

Towering above it all is a 550-gallon drop bucket, which fills with water every three to four minutes before toppling forward and spilling its contents onto a plate that spreads it across nearly the entire structure.

The new attraction sits in a wading pool, which, at its deepest point, is 20 inches and nearly three times the size of the existing water play area, accommodating up to 300 guests.

This is the third major feature of Lion Country Safari’s water park area, adding on to the Safari Splash water spray ground (opened in 2005) and the water slides (opened in 2014).

Lion Country Safari’s water park area will now be able to accommodate even more guests for fun on safari. They are committed to providing a fun, family-friendly environment with ample opportunities for adventure.

Lion Country Safari is the only drive-through safari in South Florida. Guests can see over 1,000 animals on 320 acres. The park is also home to the largest herd of zebras on record in the country.

Within view is Section One of Lion Country Safari’s drive-through park, where the familiar wild animals tapirs roam making it possible to hang out on the pool deck and still see the animals.

Admittance to the new water attraction will be included with paid admission to Lion Country Safari. or with an annual pass.

Once guests are finished exploring the adventure park the water park offers a perfect venue to relax and cool off.

Great fun for the whole family right here in Palm Beach County!
