Sailfish Splash Waterpark, Stuart

Sailfish Splash Waterpark will keep you busy and happy for two to three hours! It's fun to run between the lazy river, tall slides, and water playground, and enjoy all the variety at this beautiful park! The lazy river is pretty, with clear tubes, painted murals of coral reef scenes, and views of the forest just outside the park. It goes slowly around. It has some shady areas, but I wish there were more shade coverings over it.
There is a tall open slide and a tall tunnel slide. The tunnel slide is fast and dark, and people come out looking bewildered because they don't realize it's ended because it doesn't drop them into a pool. The open slide is fairly slow, with a fun dip at the end.
The water playground is an absolute blast! There are all manner of waterguns and sprayers you can turn and twist. Steering wheels control arcs of water. A small, double slide allows kids to race. A pirate ship slide is popular with the little ones, and slightly out of the way of the wild play structure. There is a huge bucket that drops water, but it is shielded by a roof so that you can stand under the roof and watch the water splash on either side of you. There are sprayers that shoot up from your feet and there are two medium sized slides, one of them a tunnel slide.
Kids of all ages, including teens, love this park.
Reclining chairs under large colorful shade coverings are spread out throughout the park. There is a concession stand that sells food, drinks, and icecream bars. There are also lockers for a fairly high price- $7.
Beware the ants that are on the ground under the reclining chairs. I had only been at the park for a few seconds, putting my bag on a chair, when I was bit by one, and the pain, swelling, and intense itchiness two days later is unbearable- I never want to feel this again!
Go for a meal or a stroll at downtown Stuart after your nice day at the park!
