Deep River Waterpark

Please note: Admission must be purchased online before arrival. You can purchase tickets here and view info on safety, what's available and more here.

The South Shore's premiere waterpark, Deep River opens each summer on Memorial Day weekend. Families from miles away come each summer to enjoy the lazy river, slides, wavepool and picnic areas.

Visitors can speed down slides like the DRAGON, STORM and the six-lane racer slide, KRAKEN. The Double-Dueling CannonBowl ride is also a favorite shooting you into a bowl at top speeds before sending you to the exit pool. The River Rides are perfect for a lazy day in the sun and the PlayZone is perfect for younger kids and toddlers.


Deep River Waterpark is very affordable with free parking and free tubes for rides that require them.  The waterpark has food vendors on site, but also allows coolers to be brought in as long as there is no alcohol, knives or other sharp items, glass, or anything that heats. Cabanas and gazebos are available for rent for larger groups or for some additional privacy during your visit. 

Ice Skating at Deep River Waterpark

During the winter, Deep River Waterpark offers ice-skating under the clocktower. Skate rentals are available and families can enjoy hot chocolate and food from the vendor area.
