Splash of Fun Water Park

 

If you are looking for a "Splash of Fun" this summer, you and your Frugal Family Travelers may want to consider packing the beach bag and heading to Mississippi to beat the southern heat. Located in Flint Creek State Park,  Splash of Fun Water Park has been around for quite a while but was previously known to locals as "Water Town".   However, those who plan a visit  here will not find the same park they remember from the past, as it has been transformed by the new owners.  "Splash of Fun" retains all of the classic slides of the orignal (updated and refurbished)  including the white water tubing experience using water from the lake. However, a fully chlorinated water area,  miniature golf course and other slides have been added for additional fun!   Again, one of the unique features of the orignal park retained by the new owners is the use of the adjacent lake to supply water for the tubing slide!  It was our favorite slide at the park and reminded us of  Disney's River Country!  The park is especially good for younger travelers as parents can see all slides and walkways from the bottom pool.  The park was staffed with many lifeguards and felt extremely well supervised.  Park staff also mentioned that weekdays have fewer visitors.  Our Frugal Family Travelers never had to stand in a line when we visited on a Monday afternoon!  We had a great day and know once the park is fully "transformed" it will provide even more excitement for your Frugal Family Travelers.
