When I heard the Seashore Waterpark was opening for the summer, we were so excited to get out and visit. This Indiana waterpark is adored by the local community, as evidenced by all those who showed up for the opening day. You can get in on all the fun, too. It’s time to plan a pool day with your family at Seashore Waterpark!
You can expect morning crowds and quieter afternoons at Seashore Waterpark. We arrived twenty minutes prior to the posted opening time to find a line already forming. If your agenda includes a morning waterpark visit, give yourself plenty of time for any packing-up mishaps and get there BEFORE the waterpark opens to guarantee your crew a spot.
Need to entertain some excited kids while you wait in line for the pool to open? We love the Heads Up app as a great way to pass the time. All ages in our family enjoy this guessing game!
My alternate recommendation is to wait to arrive. By 1 pm, no one was waiting in line and everyone arriving at that time was walking right up to get checked in. If your kids are old enough that there are no naptimes to contend with, an afternoon trip might be the way to go.
Attractions at the Seashore Waterpark
Inside the waterpark, you’ll find a whole range of fun water features! The largest attractions are the two large red and yellow water slides. We loved both of them! The red slide has a required minimum rider height of 42”.
The red slide is completely covered and lets out in an area of ankle-deep water, so you can easily stand and walk out. The yellow slide has a required minimum rider height of 48”. This slide is not covered and lets out in a small wading pool that is 3.5’ deep.
There are two other features located next to the water slides. One is the lily pad water walk, where you can try to balance while holding the netting above and attempt to walk across the leisure pool. If you slip on a lily pad – and they are very slippery – you can feel safe knowing the depth here is also only 3.5’.
The second feature is the lazy river. Go ahead and float to your heart’s content! There is also a small whirlpool in the middle of the lazy river, and the water depth throughout is 3.5’ depth.
Nearby is the kiddie pool, starting at zero entry and going to 3’ at its deepest. The kiddie area has two small slides, interactive water features, geysers, and a giant bucket that fills to spill and splash everyone below.
The final water attraction is the wave pool, which is one of only a handful in the state! The wave pool starts at zero entry with tiny geysers for littles to enjoy, and goes to a maximum depth of 5’. It was so much fun for kids of all ages since they can choose the area they are comfortable with the wave heights.
Other Amenities at Seashore Waterpark
The waterpark offers a very reasonably priced concession stand selling nachos, pizza, ice cream, and other favorites. Restrooms, showers, changing tables, and water fountains are located directly across from the kiddie pool area. The waterpark is located in Lebanon Memorial Park, which includes a playground and covered picnic tables, as well as a basketball, volleyball, and tennis court if you are looking to stay and play!
Things to Know Before You Go
No outside food, drink, or coolers are allowed, with the exception of sippy cups and refillable plastic bottles. Fountain drinks at the concession stand do not offer lids. Straws are available upon request.
Season passes are still available and Lebanon residents receive a discounted rate.
Seashore Waterpark does not allow water wings and other flotation devices. The only exception is puddle jumpers.
The waterpark should be open until Labor Day weekend. As the back-to-school time nears, check Lebanon Parks and Recreation’s social media or website to verify that staffing shortages have not caused a change to this schedule.
