at the heart of the brightly-hued getaway is a purpose-designed ‘thrill waterpark’, daring the most adrenaline-seeking guests to conquer two immense towers with 13 waterslides. standing at 135-foot-tall, daredevil’s peak is the tallest waterslide in north america.

it is one of seven slides that spiral down from a colorfully clad tower which forms the centerpiece to the park’s design. characterized by its skeletal infrastructure, spectrum of irregularly placed slats expose a series of interconnecting pipes which support multiple platforms where several other slides unwind.

elsewhere, a helium filled structure attached to a basked, designed to mimic a hot air balloon, offers the highest vantage point in the bahamas. securely tethered to the ground by cable, the signature attraction floats up to 450 feet above the park.
