Hydro Adventures features a wet and dry side that the ENTIRE family is sure to love!

The wet side is full of attractions that are one of a kind in the Poplar Bluff area. The newest water attraction, Twisted 6, has six super soaking, plummeting ways to slide down! Poseidon’s Pipeline is a three-slide complex that twists and turns right into a pool at the bottom! Grab a tube and ride the waves of Crashing Waves Bay. Looking for something more relaxing? Lay back and float the gentle currents of the Easy river. Splish Splash Bay is perfect for the kids with a shallow bottom that offers endless adventures of slides, soaking, and splashing!

The dry side at Hydro offers just as much fun, if not MORE! Single and double go karts fly around the track! A challenging 18-hole mini golf course will have you hitting and hoping for a hole in one. A NEW 55-foot Galaxy coaster will give you that extreme thrill every amusement lover craves. The Scrambler, Hydro Maiden, and Tip n Twirl are three separate rides that will spin and twist you in all different directions. The Poplar Hopper will shoot you up and down right into the sky. A smaller tiger coaster offers the kids their own thrill along with the Truck Stop ride that will drive them around and bring out their inner truck driver.

The MEGA ARCADE is new and improved and features ROUTE 66 MINI BOWLING which is all is all the fun of normal bowling but half the size.
