At the beginning of summer, we bought an awesome playcation pass for family fun in our area. Attractions included a family four pass to The Greenville Drive, The Greenville Zoo, The Children’s Museum of the Upstate, and any water park in Greenville county. This awesome deal was $35!!!! My family of four enjoyed some amazing summer adventures through this playcation offer!
Discovery Island Water Park is located in Simpsonville, SC at Southside Park: 417 Baldwin Road, Simpsonville, SC 29680 864-963-4345. It is so much fun for children of all ages! With one week of school under our belt and just before summer came to an end, we decided to take our boys on adventure in our community! We have experienced so much rain and colder than usual temperatures this summer, and could not find an ideal day to visit the park, until Saturday. It was the perfect warm, sunny day to splash and play in an outdoor water fun zone with my boys!
We had a fabulous family day enjoying the slides, lounging in the lazy river, trying our hand at surfing on the Flowrider, and exploring a water filled playground with tunnel slides and much, much more! I snapped
a few a lot of pictures of our day trip!
Remember to bring towels, camera, extra money for concessions(picnic tables are outside of the park if you want to save some money or have special dietary needs, sunscreen, rash guard, sun protective clothing, water shoes are nice but not a necessity, (life vests provided at the park), your swimsuit(swim cover up), a change of clothing(we changed in a family changing room). I liked being able to do that and have our privacy. You will also want to have some energy for carrying tubes and walking up the staircase. It’s not steep, but if your children our like my boys, you will make many trips up the staircase to slide. Last but not least, a positive attitude and a smile! Have a little talk with your little one about waiting in line. We did not have to wait too long, but little one’s especially might need to be told this ahead of time.
The park features a cool Flowrider, an interactive water playground, a lazy river, body slide, tube slide, a leisure pool area, kiddie slides, geysers and more. Concession are also available, at reasonable prices. Swimming and Flowrider lessons are available.
