H2OBX—Powells Point, Nc

This brand-new waterpark in North Carolina opened this June and makes an exciting addition to an Outer Banks vaycay. With tons of family rides to take on together and plenty of spots to chill in between: embrace the local pirate history at Calico Jack’s Cove—a huge pirate ship water play structure—and gather your crew for a family plunge on the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Relax on the Teach’s Tides Adventure River and let the tots splash at Sand Pail Beach. Grab some BBQ and snacks and then do it all again!
