Amusement & Water Parks
If the voices in the backseat are crying ‘Mom, I’m bored!’ it might be time to swing into one of Maine’s amusement parks.
New England's largest beachfront amusement park is Palace Playland in Old Orchard Beach. The park has roller coasters, midway-style rides, kids' rides, water slides, carnival games and Maine's largest arcade. With new rides added regularly, like the HyperJump you’ll want to keep coming back!
Saco hosts Maine's biggest combination amusement/water park: Funtown Splashtown USA. The twin park has Excalibur, Maine’s only wooden roller coaster (and the tallest in New England!) and Thunder Falls, New England’s tallest log-flume ride. The water park has many rides for all thrill-levels and offers a great way to stay cool.
Aquaboggan Water Park:
Just down the road from Funtown Splashtown USA is Aquaboggan Water Park for those who want water fun all day. Try its 750,000-gallon wave pool; mild and wild water slides, tubing slides, bumper boats, go-karts and mini golf.
Seacoast Adventure in Windham has a 100-foot-long Sky Swing, a ropes course, summer hill tubing, go carts and a mini-golf course. Kids also love the water playground, Shipwreck Cove. In the winter, Seacoast Adventure offers snow tubing!
Wild Acadia Funzone:
The Funzone at the Wild Acadia Camping Resort in Trenton, near Bar Harbor, offers an aerial adventure park, water slide, climbing wall, trampoline and an 18-hole mini-golf course. Day passes are available to those not camping.
