Morgan’s Island, the biggest water park in the Caribbean and Latin America, has opened in Aruba.
The $14-million 28,000-sq.-ft. water park features the Dragon Revenge, a dual slide; the Buccaneer Tower, a tube tower with slides for two and four rides; and a single-person, free-fall waterslide with a 21-m vertical drop.
Amenities include showers, changing and locker rooms, a game parlor and a theatre gazebo, with podium, between wave pools. Food and beverage areas include Black Pearl buffet eatery and Treasure Chest offering coffees, milk, ice cream and pastries.
With a capacity of about 3,000, the park can be rented out for private events. A discount of up to 10 per cent, for groups of 10-plus, is available.
