Big Kahuna’s Water Park located in Destin, FL is has an environmental back drop that transports you to the luscious gardens of Hawaii and energizes you to get out in the water and play! A typical waterpark lends itself to a commercial concrete jungle, where you only get perspective of a park once you have climbed to the top of a slide. That is not the case with Big Kahuna! Big Kahuna’s water park is nestled into a large sand dune adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico. The height of the dune lends itself to becoming the routes for slides and lazy rivers. Upon entering the park you are already at the one of the highest peaks of the park. There are spectacular views from every angle.
(*the small roofs pictured above are cabana’s located next to the wave pool.)
Fun for All Ages
The layout of the entire park is quite genius. There are 2 lazy rivers that seem to be the foundation of Big Kahuna’s. All of the slides in the park either spit your out into one of the lazy rivers or with in steps of a lazy river.
Private Cabana Rental
Big Kahuna’s offers private cabana rental. The cabana’s are located in several places in the park. Each cabana is shaded and assigned its own server who will take your food and drink orders and serve you pool side. The cost of the cabana is $99 per day, in addition to your admission tickets. It is worth every bit of the $99 investment. We found our server, Arsenio, to have excellent customer service and was very attentive to the needs of our party. The food was tasty and there were adult beverages on the menu! We appreciated having a “home base” to come back to or wait for others to come back. What more could you ask for when spending the day at a water park??
It was great to be able to sit in the cabana and reenergize while the boys rode on the Hydro Max or Piranha. While we trusted the lifeguards on duty we did ask that they come and check in with us after each ride.
We were able to capture some video while at the park as well. Take a look at these short clips to get a glimpse of the fun we had at Big Kahuna’s.
Upon exiting the park we decided to take in a friendly game of put-put golf. There’s nothing like being the only girl amongst 4 competitive boys, so I decided to keep score.
Big Kahuna’s is a number one visitor attraction in the Destin area and now I know why! The staff was friendly and courteous. The park was not overly crowded and was enjoyed by our entire family. I would definitely suggest that when you travel to Destin you add Big Kahuna’s as a place to play.
