Grab your swim tubes, slip on those flip-flops and prepare to get soaked! The sun is coming out to play and so should you. Just in time as well, because Saturday, May 28th, Lions Water Adventure will be reopening for its 2022 season.

Lions Water Adventure

Lions Water Adventure is a beautiful water park located in the Kinston Community Center. A water wonderland perfect for family adventures, chilled hangout sessions with friends and even business retreats. Lions Water Adventure caters for everyone.

The water park features:

  • A 550-feet long lazy river that can be enjoyed solo or with a partner.
  • A 32-foot tall water tower with a choice of 3 water slides.
  • A 5000 square foot kiddie pool loaded with water sprays, fountains, a water dump bucket and a slide.
  • Swimba’s Canteen, an eatery dishing out snacks, ice cream, grilled food and soft drinks.
  • A large picnic area to cater for corporate retreats and family gatherings.

With largely positive reviews complimenting the “friendly staff” and “reasonable prices”, imagine ticket sales to be high and season passes to be popular.

Lions Water Adventure also offers special Party Packages. These are perfect for those hoping to celebrate a special day by splashing away! The “Splash Party” package is offered for a starting price of $225 (This price will increase with add-ons).

Safety and Hygiene Concerns

With COVID-19 still around, sanitation has become very important in all businesses and our everyday lives. Lions Water Park knows this and has partnered with Dave’s Cleaning Service – a local small business – to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their park.

This should bring a sense of assurance and safety to all those wanting to have some fun in the sun. While the park is not operating at full capacity yet, masks are no longer a requirement per the CDC’s update.
