Atlantic City Boardwalk Welcomes ISLAND Waterpark at The Showboat Resort


Get ready for a thrilling new addition to the iconic Atlantic City Boardwalk this summer. On June 30, 2023, the highly-anticipated ISLAND Waterpark will open its doors at The Showboat Resort, bringing a whole new level of family fun and entertainment to America’s Favorite Playground.

Developed by Tower Investments CEO and Showboat owner Bart Blatstein, The Showboat Resort is set to become the world’s premier beachfront indoor entertainment experience. With ISLAND Waterpark as its centerpiece, this resort aims to restore Atlantic City’s reputation as a top-notch destination for all.

So, what can you expect from ISLAND Waterpark? Prepare to ride the waves on the 1,000 square-foot Wild Wave FlowRider surf simulator, the only one of its kind in New Jersey offering surf lessons. Be mesmerized by the Blue Cascade Waterfall, one of the largest custom water forms in the world. Book the exclusive 30-foot-tall Indoor Tree House for private parties. Indulge in various water sports at the Adventure Pool. Drift along the 6,500 square-foot Island Drift Lazy River, stretching almost the entire length of the waterpark. And let the younger visitors have a blast at Kids Cove, an interactive play area with water activities designed just for them. With its exotic island theme, ISLAND Waterpark promises to transport you to a tropical paradise.

“We’re excited to bring a whole new world of family entertainment to the Atlantic City Boardwalk with ISLAND Waterpark at The Showboat Resort,” says Bart Blatstein. “This will truly be a breathtaking experience that will leave people of all ages amazed. And the best part? You can enjoy it all year round.”

But it’s not just about the waterpark. ISLAND Waterpark also offers amazing experiences for adults. Enjoy craft beers, curated wines, and signature cocktails at any of the six bars. Feel like you’re in paradise at Paradise Adult Island, a 10,000-square-foot space overlooking the waterpark and ocean. Dance the night away with DJ entertainment and cool off at Bliss Pool, the adults-only pool complete with a swim-up bar. And when the kids are enjoying the waterpark, parents and adults can escape and relax in the oasis-like adults-only area, which includes Peloton bikes, manicure stations, chair massages, workspaces, VIP cabanas, and more. At night, experience the first-ever adult-only nightlife venue at a waterpark.

But that’s not all. ISLAND Waterpark boasts two exclusive attractions not found in any other indoor waterpark in the US. Take a thrilling ride on the more than 1,000-foot Coconut Zero-Gravity Coaster, suspended high above the waterpark with stunning views of the ocean and boardwalk. And if that’s not enough adrenaline for you, try the 300-foot-long RipTide Zip Line.

With its unique glass retractable roof, ISLAND Waterpark can be enjoyed all year round. Open during the warmer months to let in sunshine and ocean breezes, it can be closed during inclement weather. The roof even doubles as a projection display for added ambiance and versatility.

For guests of The Showboat Hotel, there’s an exclusive treat. Rise ‘n’ Shine offers an hour of private access to ISLAND Waterpark before it opens to the public.

And that’s not the end of the excitement at The Showboat Resort. The Lucky Snake Arcade, already the largest arcade in the world, is expanding. Get ready for disco-themed rollerblading, state-of-the-art classic games-themed mini golf, a 40-foot-tall climbing wall, and the world’s largest Zoltar fortune teller.

ISLAND Waterpark at The Showboat Resort is set to revolutionize family entertainment on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Get ready to dive in and experience the ultimate tropical paradise getaway, right in the heart of Atlantic City.
