Our 30,000 sq. foot indoor waterpark boasts tons of activities in and out of the pool. The best part? You won’t need any sunscreen!


We have put together a list of 5 Pro Tips to help make your experience a gnarly one!



Our large resort complex features four hotels that are directly connected to the waterpark: Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, La Quinta by Wyndham, Residence Inn by Marriott, and Home2 Suites by Hilton. All four hotels feature complimentary breakfast, free parking, wi-fi, and discounted admission to the waterpark. Looking to extend your stay and splash longer? Check-in to the Home2 Suites by Hilton or Residence Inn by Marriott for a ‘home away from home’ feel. Want a waterpark view? Book the Reef Suite at Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott for an incredible view from the comfort of your hotel room. Don’t leave your furry friend behind! We accept all pets at La Quinta by Wyndham, Home2 Suites by Hilton, and Residence Inn by Marriott.



The fun doesn’t stop at the waterpark! Head over to the Arcade where you can win tickets and score some fun prizes. With over 40 of your favorite video games, plus skeeball and air hockey, there’s something for every age. Planning a birthday party? Our birthday party goers get $5 in arcade play each!



Grab a bite to eat without the commute! Sliders Bar & Grill, located inside the waterpark, is a tropical-themed restaurant with a waterslide running through it. Order a delicious meal on the spot from our extensive menu including specialty pizza, wings, subs, and salads. We have something to satisfy every craving! While the kiddos are at the pool, the adults can grab a cold one at the full-service bar! If you need a pick-me-up at any point during your stay, we offer Proudly Serving Starbucks right from the bar or at our kiosk. Want a break from the waterpark? Perkin’s Restaurant & Bakery is conveniently attached to WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort and offers a full menu with breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.



WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort has something for everyone. If you’re looking to relax while you’re here, grab a tube and float down the Lazy River or hang out in the Oasis Hot Tub. We offer discounted spectator passes that includes access to the Oasis Hot Tub. Are you more of a thrill-seeker? Slip into one of our exhilarating slides that will have you yelling “cowabunga, dude!” We’ve got three slides to choose from: Maui’s Body Slide, the Sink Hole, and the Funky Frog Slide. We guarantee one ride is not enough! If little ones are in tow, they can splash around in KoKo’s Kingdom water playground.



What better way to complete your vacation than with photos and souvenirs? Create an unforgettable experience at WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort by purchasing a one-of-a-kind Tropical Tumbler and t-shirt. Don’t forget to snap a photo with our mascot, Koko! We know you’ll have the ‘slide of your life’ and we want you to share your experience with us. Show us your best #WaTikiFun photos and take your best #SplashSelfie for social media!
