Caribbean Cove Now Open at Hurricane Harbor New Jersey

Just in time for today's soaring temperatures in the Northeast, New Jersey's Hurricane Harbor water park has opened a brand new attraction - Caribbean Cove.  The new addition features a large water play structure, filled with plenty of ways to stay cool, and an expansive lounging area.

"Hurricane Harbor brings the vibrant colors, iconic images and white sand beaches of the Caribbean to our new family water playground. Caribbean Cove is a fantastic complement to our world-class lineup of innovative and extreme water slides. It offers fun for junior thrill seekers and their families,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald.

Caribbean Cove features more than 55 interactive features on several different levels, more than enough to keep visitors exploring for hours.  These features include water jets, spray nozzles, water guns, climbing nets and even two small water slides.  Since the addition has been crafted for the whole family parents can be comfortable knowing all the features are safe for their little ones.  The entire structure has bright colors to match its Caribbean theme, and even has a friendly parrot perched at the very top.

One of the most exciting features of water play structures is the tipping bucket, and that is hard to miss on Caribbean Cove.  Every few minutes the bucket, which is located two stories in the air, fills up and then slowly tips over, pouring water down onto a roof of the structure and sending it splashing on the crowd below.

The area around the structure has also been designed to allow families to relax while at Hurricane Harbor.  In addition to the zero-depth entry to the shallow pool surrounding the attraction, there is a large sandy beach area perfect for fun in the sun.  Approximately 300 new lounge chairs have been placed in the expansion, some of which are located under giant shade structures.  The new area is located next to the Big Wave Racer slide tower and the Taak It Eez Ee Creek lazy river.

Hurricane Harbor is located adjacent to Six Flags Great Adventure.  For more information on the park and its 25 slides and attractions, click here.
