Six Flags America Splashwater Falls, Hurricane Harbor

Hey Cuties,

This weekend was a hot one, I’m talking hot for no reason hot. The dope folks at Six Flags invited us out for a day of fun at their Splashwater Falls inside Hurricane Harbor and a Crab Feast. Yes, they gave us complimentary entrance into the park and then fed us. It doesn’t get any better than this. I shared my roller coaster experience and y’all laughed at me. From here on out it is all water park all the time.

Hello Hurricane Harbor

I kept this a surprise until the night before; my kids would ask me about it daily otherwise. In the name of sanity this is the best way to handle things. My kids have never been to Six Flags, this is the first amusement park my daughter has been to that she can remember.

Beach Party and Crab Feast this way…

They always do a great job of building the suspense with the signs. The kids got a kick out of finding the next one.

Sign In

We were greeted by this nice young lady and this scary guy. My daughter was not pleased, she lost it immediately. He does look creepy right?

Corn on the cob

Because corn goes well with crabs.

Giving my son a lesson on how to open a crab.

All these years my son has only been eating the crab legs. Now that he has this man-size appetite he need more than that. His Dad and I gave him a crash lesson on how to open and eat a crab properly.

Splashwater Falls

Six Flags America is debuting new interactive play area inside their water park, Hurricane Harbor. Splashwater Falls is a multi-level play structure that has more than one hundred features.  Kids will climb up ladders, swish down open and enclosed slides, and navigate varying platforms.

You can stay cool by playing under waterfalls, spouting geysers, and spraying fountains. A super-sized tipping bucket sits atop the huge play structure dumping water on everyone underneath.  This thing was popular, let me show you how it works.

 

 

 

We dropped out items on the lounge chairs and got right to it.

You can see the spouting geysers to the right and the tube slides to the left.

Tipping bucket

I tried to catch the bucket dumping in actions so you can see just how much water it is. My 4 year old is in this picture; she loved standing under the bucket dumping. She was all kinds of brave.

Live Crabs for Sale

The kids aren’t taking this “craft theme” a bit too serious.

Babe & I

Don’t think this is a kids only type of deal. I saw plenty of adults getting in on the action with no kids in sight.

Working on this pretty brown

After spending about four hours at Splashwater Falls we decided to check out the lazy river.
Cover Up: I scored this Marimekko Terry Cloth Cover Up for $5.98. Original price $29.99

Only I never quite made it because we went to the pool. The lazy river goes all around this pool. Babe and the kids checked it out while I took in some Vitamin D from the sun.

This is my daughters first time with all of this water play. She made a friend and they had so much fun. They raced and played games, it was just cute to see their imaginations at work.

Faux Floating

While the girls splashed around me, I got some much needed R&R in.  It suddenly didn’t seem so hot after all. My son enjoyed some of the other water activities geared towards the big kids. Now that he is older I can allow him to go on and explore a little bit. Controlled independence is what I call it.

We don’t want to go…

We had an amazing time, we look forward to coming back. Thanks again to the fab folks at Six Flags for taking such great care of us. Family memories were made.

    I’m in love with your coverup and the price! Looks like your family had a fun day and the food looks delish. I love how you didn’t tell your kids about the outing in advance to avoid those neverending questions.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Thanks Alli, I was so excited when I scored such a good deal. The family had a blast, it was a great way to disconnect yet reconnect with one another.

      I don’t tell them anything, I just say a surprise.

  2. Linda @With A Blast

    Looks like so much fun ! And I love any and all water parks. The food looks great too !

  3. Anita Fonte

    I so want to go to Six Flags in NJ (that is the closest to my area). I keep telling my husband each year. I especially want to go during crab fest. I can see from your pics you all had a fun time.

  4. Stacie

    Girl I hear you! Now that is the best way to cool off! My kid has been begging me to go swimming but I don’t want to step one foot out of this air conditioning!

    • MimiCuteLips

      I feel you Stacie, I’m that was too. I had more fun then I thought I would. I’m glad they got me out of the house. I want them to become more comfortable with the water so I have to take them.

  5. lisa

    This looks like so much fun! I love Six Flags. There are always so many fun things to do.

  8. Jeanette

    That looks like it was a lot of fun! I did not know Six Flags had something like this. I cannot do roller coasters at Six Flags anymore but I can still do water rides and slides! I need to get myself over there!

  9. Sarah

    This looks like such a great place to experience, glad you were able to go to Six Flags America Splashwater Falls 🙂 Looks like a fun and refreshing time!

  11. Annemarie LeBlanc

    I would love to have my fill of those crabs! Yummy! I am happy to know you and your family had a great time at the water park. My grandchildren enjoy cooling off at water parks and it is a regular summer activity for them. BTW, your daughter is such a sweetheart!

  12. Kathleen Kennedy-Leon

    wow–what a great family day out–looks like you all had a fantastic time! loved all the pictures and the food looks fabulous too-had not idea they had so many great selections

  13. Eva

    Looks like you guys had a great time! And what was the purpose of the creepy guy – curious. I think I’d have lost it too… LOL

  14. Bella

    Water parks are so much fun – we make sure to go at least once every summer. We will have to check out this park, it looks like a lot of fun.

  15. Sheena

    I haven’t been to Hurricane Harbor since hubby and I were teenagers. Gonna make it a goal to go in a year or two. Love the Marimekko sales. I’m eyeing a few pieces. We don’t tell the kids anything either because… questions. And lastly, the #fatsnacks once again got me salivating.

  16. LaShawn

    I can’t lie, as soon as I saw the crabs I was distracted. I kept coming back to that photo drooling. Crabs from the warf are one of the things I miss most about DC. ANYHOO! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I love Six Flags!

    • MimiCuteLips

      I bet LaShawn, you need to come and get your fix because they are tearing the Wharf down.

      Glad you guys love Six Flags too.

  17. natalie z

  19. Amanda Love

    The crab feast is enough to get me to go here! That’s for sure. But hey, how can you miss out on all the fun, right? I’m glad there’s so much to do here for the kids, it’s the perfect summer getaway for the whole family!

  20. Tia | Pennies In My Pocket

    The Minis look so adorable, and I’m sure that had a blast! I love that place!

      Thanks Vashti. Girl I had to keep her calm and let her know she was safe. I’m so thankful it worked out because she was exhausting me.
