*Hydro Adventures

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.
LASER TAG has landed at Hydro Adventures. Get your team together and see if you have what it takes to beat the other team in this fast paced, high energy attraction.

*Stars and Stripes Museum/Library

The Stars and Stripes Museum/Library is a non-profit educational institution. We are dedicated to collecting, documenting, and preserving materials related to the creation and continued history of the Stars and Stripes military newspaper and the people behind it.
The museum exhibits the newspapers along with military items/artifacts that represent our military personnel’s continued sacrifices and contributions to keeping our nation free. Without understanding this country’s rich history, future generations run the risk of taking precious freedoms for granted and perhaps even losing those freedoms in the future.
The museum’s focus is to present information about the proud, rich military history of this country. Individuals and large or small groups from around the country are welcomed to the museum at absolutely no cost.  Tours are free and we are committed to keeping it that way. The museum is staffed by volunteers and dependent on donations to continue operating.
