Storm Surge

Run for cover as Storm Surge comes ashore!

This massive slide complex features a total of four water slides and two different experiences. Grab a tube and head up to the lower slides for an exciting, twisting and turning experience. Riders can enjoy this part of the attraction alone or with a friend on our large double tubes. As riders begin their descent, they’ll be greeted with a waterfall-like entrance to these large, enclosed tunnel slides. The ride then plunges guests into darkness while they twist through the remainder of the slide, and end in a splash pool.

Guests looking for a more thrilling experience, can climb all the way to the top of Storm Surge to the body slides.* These are the tallest slides in Carolina Harbor. These twisting tunnel slides send riders through 495 feet of sharp turns from 80 feet in the air.  

*swimsuits with any kind of metal features are not allowed on Storm Surge body slides.

Height Requirement: 48” in bare feet minimum
