Hydro Adventures is a waterpark and family entertainment center located in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, which is owned by national amusement park operator, United Parks.[1] Hydro Adventures is open from May through September. According to the website, the park consists of six water attractions and 12 dry attractions of varying "thrill levels."[2]

History

Hydro Adventures opened in 2003 as Bluff Falls Water Park.[3] It was purchased in 2014 by United Parks and re-opened under the new name, Hydro Adventures. In addition to the new name, United Parks made improvements to the facility that included the addition of a major new water slide named Twisted Six and a Triple Threat Basketball attraction.[1] The park added five new rides in 2015: the Tiger Coaster, Tilt A Whirl, Truck Stop, Tea Cup, and Spring Ride.[4] Other updates have included new go-carts with a state-of-the-art control system, and renovations to the mini-golf course and batting cages.[5]
