Wave Pool Status

A Message From Our General Manager


August 16, 2018

Unfortunately, the Splashaway Bay Wave Pool will remain closed for the season. I want to extend my sincere apologies. We understand your disappointment; we are disappointed too.

We began the repair project during the off season and discovered the pool was never built to the original specifications on file with the New York State Department of Health. As a result, we needed to re-design the plumbing infrastructure and filtration system, bringing the pool into current code compliance. By early summer, we completed most of the work as we posted on this webpage. During the filling process, we discovered a leak in the underground surge tank. We completed those repairs, conducted pressure testing and began filling the pool again, only to discover additional leaks.

Although the outcome is not what we anticipated, we will continue the repairs to ensure the Wave Pool operates for years to come.

Once again, I want to apologize to you and all of our guests. We are deeply committed to improving our park and providing the best possible guest experience.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at chkearsing@fantasyislandny.com
