Looking for outdoor family fun on an Okanagan vacation? Atlantis Water Slides, in Vernon BC, is your answer! With it's 10 water park slides to ride, plus oodles of other fun things to do at the park itself, you can play on and stay cool in under the hot Okanagan sun all day long! Few waters slide parks remain in the Okanagan Valley. When we go to Atlantis water park, we usually make a day (or two) of the trip, and stay 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. Plus the big slides for the big kids...
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!)
Plus, 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 under $100. 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.
The park is just 5 km (3 mi) north of Vernon British Columbia. Follow highway 97 north of the city of Vernon, towards Armstrong. You'll see signs for Atlantis Park just past Swan Lake, on the right hand side of the highway.
