Day Trip Guide: Bob the Builder, Splash Works at Splashdown Beach

Want to get off Long Island for a day? Splashdown Beach is an amazing water park located in Fishkill, NY, a scant 90 minute drive from NYC, and well worth it! Splashdown Beach’s newest attraction features Bob The Builder. The Bob the Builder Splash Works section was designed exclusively with little ones in mind. Appropriate for ages, 2-7, the Bob the Builder section is a full space of splash extravaganza.  We liked the smaller space for our little ones. It was easy to keep an eye on them and we were comfortable letting them exercise a little independence and play as they pleased without us having to be right next to them. With only one entrance/exit, the space provided enough room for hours of fun, but enough safety that we, as parents, could relax as well.  Freedom for kids, peace of mind for parents = GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR ALL!

The Bob the Builder inspired space features: 2 slides, bungee swings, sprinkler shoots, water tables with parts to manipulate for fun water discoveries as well as plenty of surprise splashes from above.  The children literally spent hours in the Bob the Builder Splash Works section of Splashdown Beach.

We spent most of our time with Bob, so we only had time to try a few of the other areas of the park. We noticed that there were plenty of available rides for kids/adults of all ages. The lines moved very quickly and for those that wanted some “down” time, there was plenty of room in the pool and arcade.  We loved the Croc Creek Wavy Lazy River as well as the “kids only”,  Shipwreck Lagoon.

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the park, including sparkling bathrooms and changing rooms as well as the amount of life guards on duty.  The staff was accommodating and friendly and when one of the children had to make a visit to the First Aid team, they were competent, quick and their experience with children, obvious.  Did we mention all of the life preservers around? You never had to go far to get one, and if you needed a different size, a staff member was right there to assist you.

Splashdown Beach is a one-stop adventure for ALL of your water park fun.  Something for everyone, clean, safe and tons of splashing to go around.
