Tropics & Bamboo Bay Waterpark

The indoor waterpark has a tropical theme as well. Families will enjoy it because it has areas designed for every age. Bamboo Bay is the new waterpark expansion ideal for children 10 and under and has slides, sprayers and buckets, a large play structure, zero-depth entry, and cabanas on the pool deck available for rent. Another area great for little ones is Shipwreck Beach, a zero-depth entry play area with a shipwreck boat slide, palm tree splashpad and a water walk.

Tropics, the large main pool, offers bigger kids and adults space to play water sports or float on a sea creature. The three-story "Shark Attack" water slide allows participants to choose their own music as they slide down.

There is also a whirlpool and sitting area for the adults (18 and older). However, it is pool policy that an adult must be in the water with and within arms reach of all children 6 and under. As anyone with multiple children of this age group knows, this is nearly impossible for an adult escorting more than one child, so be prepared to bring back up when taking younger siblings.

Birthday Parties at Shoreview Community Center

The Community Center has several party options to choose from. Exclusive packages are available if you want the place to yourself, or you can rent a space for cake and gifts and visit the waterpark and playground while they’re open to the public. You can book a party as late as the Wednesday before the party (dependent on availability).

Admission to Shoreview Community Center

Admission prices are subject to change. The best place to find current prices is HERE. Shoreview offers adult, youth, family* and senior daily and membership prices at rates for residents and non-residents.

*For the purposes of daily passes, Shoreview Community Center defines "family" as 2 adults with up to 4 children living in the same household. If you are one of those families who insist on having more than your share of kids, you can (1) Pay an additional $4.50/child; (2) Purchase a family membership where the definition of family is expanded to include all children in a household; or (3) just take your favorites and leave the bratty ones with Grandma.
