Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, located adjacent to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, has announced a major expansion for the 2019 season named Calypso Springs.

The attraction, which offers an expansive area to both play and relax, is the largest addition to the water park since it opened back in 2000.  The addition comes on the heels of Six Flags Great Adventure having announced a major thrill ride, Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth, last fall.

Calypso Springs will be a massive activity pool that contains 100,000 gallons of summer fun, featuring a beach-style entrance.  The above concept art shows what the finished product will look like, similar to existing attractions at other Hurricane Harbor water parks.  The area will be able to entertain many guests at once, offering them the choice to simply relax in the water or partake in a multitude of different activities.

"Hurricane Harbor is an industry leader with best-in-class water slides and spectacular, interactive family attractions, and in 2019 we are excited to debut our largest new addition to date with Calypso Springs. This enormous, new pool, expansive lounge deck and dining area will offer the perfect place to enjoy signature, Six Flags summertime thrills,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Winkler.

Features of Calypso Springs include a large, obelisk-style fountain that has a spontaneously erupting geyser (seen above), a large open lounge deck with hundreds of chairs for sunbathing and relaxing, plenty of umbrellas for those seeking some shade on a warm day, and bimini shade covers available to rent.  The renovated area will also feature a brand new dining location within Hurricane Harbor.

Calypso Springs will be located between the Taak It Eez Ee Creek lazy river attraction and the high-thrill Tornado water slide.  The expansion is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
