Kids Cove

Explore a Sunken Submarine.

Get your scuba gear ready, you’re going on an underwater adventure! This interactive children’s play area in Wildwater Kingdom brings out the little one’s love of water and exploration. Even the most timid of adventurers can’t help but explore this site of a sunken submarine. What made this submarine sink to the ocean floor of Kids Cove in 1992? Well, that’s a question to ask the octopus that guards the submarine’s empty hull. The tentacles of this friendly octopus also serve as mini staircases and waterslides that splash into the zero-depth water below. Your kids will be wanting to climb back up the stairway tentacles again and again for hours of enjoyment. This interactive play area is the most popular in Wildwater Kingdom for guests under 54” tall. Parents can sit back and relax, as there are plenty of lounge and beach chairs to watch your little adventurers explore this play area. You can find Kids Cove across from Lollipop Lagoon and Aquablast.
