Massive 100,000-Gallon Activity Pool Centerpiece of New Calypso Springs
Six Flags Great Adventure, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park, debuts its second major addition for the 2019 season with the introduction of Calypso Springs. This giant activity pool is Six Flags Hurricane Harbor’s largest new attraction since the waterpark opened in 2000, this activity pool was designed and all necessary filtration was supplied by Aquatic Development Group (ADG).
“Our new Calypso Springs activity pool has been an excellent investment. Hurricane Harbor’s growing popularity has increased the need for deck space over the years. Since opening this attraction, we’ve provided hundreds of guests a beautiful, new space to lounge and cool off for long periods of time that includes European-style biminis and massive umbrellas,” said Six Flags Great Adventure president John Winkler. “We’ve also increased our F&B sales at Calypso Springs, delivering a better guest experience and improved ROI. We are very pleased with the outcome of this project.”
The key features of Calypso Springs include:
• Massive 100,000-gallon beach entry-style pool
• Obelisk-style fountain with spontaneously erupting geyser
• Giant, open lounge deck with hundreds of chairs for sunbathing
• Oversized umbrellas for respite from the summer sun
• Charming Bimini shade covers available for rental
• A new dining location.
The 45-acre Hurricane Harbor waterpark also features a million-gallon wave pool, a half-mile lazy river, more than 25 high-speed thrill slides and two interactive children’s water playgrounds. All attractions are included with Hurricane Harbor park admission, Membership and Season Pass.
“Hurricane Harbor is an industry leader with the biggest and best water slides and thrilling, interactive family attractions. This is the perfect time to debut our largest new addition to date with Calypso Springs. Its enormous new pool, expansive lounge deck and dining area offer the best place in the region to cool off, play and relax Six Flags style with family and friends,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Winkler.
