May 14, 2022

This past summer, Volcano Island Waterpark opened its doors for business for the very first time. If you’ve never heard of it, you’ve probably experienced it in a Dr. Seuss book. It’s a place where everything is made of lava and it’s called Volcano Island Waterpark. Located in central Pennsylvania, Volcano Island is a few miles south of Lancaster and north of York. The park is home to a dozen family-friendly water slides and attractions, including the world’s first rapids-style water park. It’s also home to the world’s first water-themed haunted attraction. The park is owned by Lancaster-based resort operator, Water Country USA. This summer, we’re going to explore the many reasons you need to visit Volcano Island Waterpark this summer. So grab your goggles, protective suits and flotation devices, and start reading to learn more about this unique water park.

It’s Off-Season Now

And we’re already in October! If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to visit Volcano Island Waterpark, you’re in luck. Off-season rates are incredibly affordable, and you’ll be able to visit the park for a lot less money than you’d be able to during the summer.

It’s So Much More Than Just a Water Park!

There are many different aspects to Volcano Island Waterpark that make it so unique. It’s not just a water park; it’s also a haunted attraction, a miniature golf course, an arcade, a ropes course, an ice skating rink and a campground. It’s a place where you can spend the entire day and still have room in your stomach for dinner!

The Entrance Fee Is Extremely Reasonable

The park’s admission fee is extremely reasonable. If you go during off-season, it’ll cost you $49 per ticket. You can also purchase a package that includes five tickets for $199. This is a lot lower than the admission costs of many other water parks.

It Has the World’s First Rapids-Style Water Park

Rip Currents, rapids-style water slides, are a very popular type of water slide in many water parks, including the ones in California, Florida, Arizona and Texas. Volcano Island Waterpark is the first water park in the world to have rapids-style slides. These are so popular and so fun that people from all over the world are coming to Pennsylvania for the very first time just to visit Volcano Island Waterpark, just to experience the rapids-style rides.

There’s a Haunted Attraction Too!

The park is home to the World’s First Haunted Attraction. This is a walk-through attraction that takes place in the haunted house. It’s stacked with fun and scares and is definitely worth experiencing if you visit the park during the fall or the winter months.

There’s a Free Kids Zone Too

The park is also home to a free kids zone. This is a waterslide-less area for children, filled with interactive exhibits and fun games and activities. Kids will love the free kids zone at Volcano Island Waterpark.

It’s Home to the World’s First Lava Golf Course

Volcano Island Waterpark is also home to the world’s first lava golf course. This is a nine-hole course that takes place on the lava river at the park. You can throw a ball and play golf while at the same time getting wet and having a lot of fun in the process!
