Discover Seashore Waterpark | Only 25 Minutes from NE Indy

Seashore Waterpark is a gem of a water park in Lebanon, only 25 minutes from Northeast Indianapolis. The drive is worth it as Seashore Waterpark boasts a huge wave pool, a lazy river, two tube slides, and lots of activities and fun play areas for the little ones.

I love the layout of this Seashore Waterpark as I can see all parts of the water park from the center seating area, unlike other water parks in Indy that are more spread out. I have done this water park by myself with two small children and have been able to keep an eye on both even though they were in different areas. Additionally, I have rarely encountered a line to get into Seashore Waterpark in the afternoon which is reason enough to drive the extra few minutes so we won’t be waiting in a crazy long line at another water park.

Discover Seashore Waterpark

Inside Seashore Waterpark, you’ll find a wide 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 inches. It 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 inches. This slide is not covered and lets out in a small wading pool that is 3.5 feet deep.

There are two other features located next to the water slides. One is the lily pad water course, 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 water depth here is only 3.5 feet.

The next feature is the lazy river. Go ahead and float to your heart’s content! There is a small whirlpool in the middle of the lazy river, dubbed the Toilet Bowl, which the kids love venturing into and swirling around and around. The water depth throughout the lazy river is 3.5 feet.

Nearby is the kiddie pool, starting at zero entry and going to 3 feet 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 feet. It was so much fun for kids of all ages and they could choose the area with wave heights they were comfortable with.

Amenities at Seashore Waterpark

Seashore 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 water park is located in Lebanon Memorial Park, which includes a playground and covered picnic tables, as well as a basketball, volleyball, and tennis court right across the parking lot. This comes in handy because the lifeguards take breaks regularly and everybody has to come out of the water for a short period of time. Our kids always run to play at the playground!

Things to Know Before You Go

No outside food, drink, or coolers are allowed to be brought into Seashore Waterpark, with the exception of sippy cups and refillable plastic bottles. Fountain drinks at the concession stand do not offer lids and straws are available upon request.

Season passes are available to purchase online and Lebanon residents receive a discounted rate. Rates vary from $80 for an individual resident to $270 for a family of 8 non-residents.

Seashore Waterpark does not allow water wings or other flotation devices. The only exception is puddle jumpers.

When to Visit Seashore Waterpark

Seashore Waterpark opens for the season on May 25, 2024, and is open daily through 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.

You can expect some morning crowds and quieter afternoons at Seashore Waterpark. We arrived twenty minutes prior to the posted opening time to find a line already forming. Give yourself plenty of time for any packing mishaps and get there before the water park opens to guarantee your crew a spot in the shade. 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.
