Zoombezi Bay Waterpark

  • Address: 4850 West Powell Road
  • Powell, OH 43065

Details

Zoombezi Bay features 17 water slides -- including the Big Boa Falls and the Python Plunge. Big Boa Falls offers surprises at every turn (including an enclosed section), followed by a 30-ft drop down a steep hill! Python Plunge is an authentic watercoaster -- Zoombezi Bay's first! Visitors can also enjoy the Wild Tides (a 544,500 gallon wave pool with waves reaching up to four feet high), SoundSurfer, Crocktail Creek (for adults only), a lazy river, Baboon Lagoon and the Cyclone (a four-person raft cruises into the largest enclosed reducing-radius tunnel in the world). Splash around at Otter Banks! This attraction features an aquatic-themed obstacle course, two body slides with surprise drops, cabanas, and more!

Explore the many dry rides at Jungle Jack's Landing or enjoy a private cabana, a snack, lunch or a cool drink between rides. This 22.7 acre water wonderland is part of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

Park your car once and visit both attractions for one price -- Zoombezi Bay pass includes admission to the Columbus Zoo.
