Don't forget about Charleston's waterparks

Update June 16: Given the bone-fry we've been through it seemed like a good time to replug this piece from last year.

First reporting: With all the heat we've had, there's few better times to go visit one of Charleston's three waterparks than now. Here's what, where, and how much:

Whirlin’ Waters

  • North Charleston (map)
  • 843-572-7275 or 843-795-4386
  • General admission: $19 (Yes, the most expensive, but also the most elaborate.

Splash Island

Splash Zone

There's lots more information on rates and specifics from the recreation department, and The Post and Courier has some tiny review bits on the waterparks.

Oh, and don't forget the public pool in downtown Charleston.
