Oregon’s Wackiest Water Park Will Make Your Summer Complete
Oregon is just full of unexpected gems. For instance, in the middle of a rural vineyard, you might find a building with a Boeing 747 on top of it. That’s not something you see every day, is it? But wait – it gets even better! That building might house a super cool water park that features 10 waterslides, a wave pool, and plenty of play space. Want more? Throw in a helicopter and a rocket ship. Sound interesting? You’ve got to check this place out:
Wings & Waves Waterpark is surrounded by a vineyard, and you'll find it just off Route 18 in McMinnville.
The address is 460 NE Captain Michael King Smith Way, McMinnville, OR 97128.
It's hard to miss - just look for the building with a Boeing 747 on the roof!
Yes - that's a REAL Boeing 747. And just wait 'til you see what they've done to it.
This wacky waterpark is a place that will spark your imagination and gear up your sense of adventure. Young or old, you'll find something that excites you here.
Hang out in Splashdown Harbor, a 91,000-gallon wave pool that has five different wave motions.
The zero-depth entry design makes it easy for even the littlest swimmers to join in on the fun, and you'll have a blast with the bubblers and depth charges. Float on an inflatable tube, or just bob and swim through the waves.
The pool also features two Apollo rockets and a huge video screen.
The 20-foot-wide screen plays videos and feature films all day long.
The leisure pool is surrounded by 40-foot-tall windows with views of the vineyard and countryside, and it's the perfect place to relax and hang out.
Enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot tub or play a rousing game of water basketball.
You'll also find the Vortex Pool in this part of the park, and it will swirl you around and around.
The forest-themed Aquaplay area is full of water features that will soak you to the bone.
Stand under one of the sprinklers, buckets, or spouts, hit your unsuspecting friends with a water gun, or enjoy one of the three waterslides here. The crowning jewel of Aquaplay is the helicopter with its 300-gallon firefighting bucket that drenches swimmers below.
The most unique feature of Wings & Waves Waterpark is up on the roof.
From the inside of the plane, you can plunge down four different waterslides!
Fly down the twists, turns, and sudden drops on the Sonic Boom, Tail Spin, Nose Dive, or Mach 1 slides.
All that water fun is sure to leave you hungry. Grab a bite to eat at the Milky Way Cafe.
Enjoy menu items like burgers, fries, chicken tenders, nachos, and more at this bright, airy cafe located on the mezzanine above the waterpark.
One-day passes to the park cost $20 for little visitors who are under 42" tall. Those who are 42" and taller pay $29 per day. If you just want to watch the fun from the sidelines, you'll pay $10 to enjoy the non-water amenities.
Kids under 42" tall can splash and play in the wave pool, leisure pool, and Aquaplay areas, and can enjoy several small waterslides. Guests who are 42" and taller will also enjoy the waterslides from the Boeing 747.
The park is open seven days a week during the summer! Get there at 10 a.m. when it opens, and stay all day long until 6 p.m.
