A Flowrider surf simulator and an array of traditional rides and pools, including a Twin Tides wave pool, an Adventure Lagoon obstacle course, and an immersive, multi-level pirate-themed play structure with a 1,000 gallon bucket dump will be features of the park. More than 50 private cabanas and a premium cabana village will offer a private oasis setting, and throughout the park will be shaded areas, free Wi-Fi and multiple food and beverage outlets.

H2OBX will be located just off of U.S. 158 in Powells Point, North Carolina, three miles north of the Wright Memorial Bridge in the Outer Banks.
