Now that the long awaited warm weather has graced us with its presence, it’s time to get outside! Pack up the family and head to Dublin this weekend to see some art in public places, visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium or splash around at Zoombezi Bay on their opening weekend!

Zoombezi Bay

Zoombezi Bay

Zoombezi Bay has attractions for every member of the family. Fly down 17 state of the art water slides, bob in the wave pool or relax in the lazy river (Crocktail Creek is my personal favorite spot).

TIP: If your little one likes or loathes being splashed- there is a large barrel that dumps 500 gallons of water every few minutes in Barracuda Bay. Listen for the ships bell that dings when the barrel gets full to either prepare to get soaked or make a quick escape!

Many new additions have been made at Zoombezi to enhance the experience.

 NEW THIS YEAR

  • Cabanas with overhead fans, refrigerators and safes have been placed throughout the park
  • The new ZOOMPASS is a virtual ride reservation that holds your spot in line while you maximize fun!
