Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City is breaking records for what’s deemed to be the world’s largest beachfront indoor waterpark, and it just opened right near NYC!
Helmed by Philadelphia developer, Bart Blastein, ISLAND Waterpark is aiding Showboat’s initiatives to bring more non-casino attractions to the property.
The new year-round waterpark is spread across 103,000 square feet. According to the press release, it contains pools, food & beverage outlets, lounge areas, party rooms, and even a lazy river. Additional exciting features include:
- 11 water slides
- 10,300 sq-ft splash pad
- Surf simulator machine
- Largest custom aqua forms in the world
- 30-foot-tall “Indoor Tree House”
- 1,000-foot Cloud Coaster
- State-of-the-art zip line
The waterpark features a retractable glass-pane roof to allow guests of ISLAND Waterpark to enjoy the fun all year long, and to bring in a beautiful ocean breeze during the warmer months.
The $100 million project made its home on the New Jersey Avenue beach block lot right next to Showboat. Philadelphia-based developing company, Tower Investments first broke ground on the project in January 2022.
“Atlantic City has a long and rich history as a premier tourist destination. Showboat is committed to bringing non-gaming, family-friendly entertainment back to Atlantic City, and the waterpark is one more piece to that puzzle,” said Blatstein, owner of Tower Investments.
Moreover, Mayor Small hopes this project will bring jobs and economic recovery to Atlantic City. “We have lacked family entertainment and this waterpark is the catalyst to draw more families to our great city and give families who live here something great and fun to do!”
