Atlantis Water Slides - Vernon British Columbia
The Okanagan Valley's Outdoor Water Park Adventure
If you love spending a day in an outdoor water slides park, then you'll love Atlantis Water Slides with it's 10 water park slides to ride, play on and stay cool in under our hot Okanagan sun!
Few waters slide parks remain in the Okanagan Valley. When we go to Atlantis water park, we make a day (or two) of the trip, and usually camp at one of the nearby local Vernon campgrounds.
Atlantis Water Slides is located just outside of the city of Vernon BC on Highway 97, and is open from the beginning of June through September long weekend, every summer.
It's a great outdoor water park, that the whole family can enjoy.
The park includes 'kiddie' slides for younger kids, a very popular River Riot ride with tubes, and a hot tub pool.
There's lots of green grass, picnic tables, umbrellas for shade and plenty of room to relax.
We usually like to pack a picnic lunch and take it with us, but we always end up getting an ice cream as a treat!
There's also a mini golf, a gift shop and a concession in case you forget to bring something along - like sunscreen (that's what we usually forget!)
There is plenty of free parking, even for RV's, and travel trailers, and we have been known to park our camper in the parking lot and head down to it for lunch.
A family of four can spend the whole day at Atlantis Water Slides for about $70.
We think that's pretty reasonably priced for a full day of fun family friendly attractions in the Okanagan!
Tubes for the River Riot are included in the full day admission. There are change rooms and showers available too.
And, if you have a full day admission, you get a bracelet, so you can come and go from the park as you like.
You can also rent lockers, towels, and life jackets if you need them.
About The Okanagan Sun and Sun Safety:
Temperatures can get above 30 degrees Celsius (that's around 86 F), and when you're playing in and around water, you can sunburn much easier.
So always use sunscreen to protect from the sun's ultraviolet rays.
If you forget your sunscreen at home, you can get buy some at the concession in the water slide parks, though it costs a little more.
