The $46 million waterpark sets a new benchmark in Carolina coastal tourism. Many of the attractions at the waterpark offer cutting-edge innovation.

13News Now spoke with the co-owner and Managing Partner of H2OBX Waterpark, Ken Ellis, who says the park has a lot to offer and it's own unique style compared to other water parks around the country.

Leah Cribb, the Marketing Supervisor of the park, says H2OBX is made specifically for families and developers worked to embed the culture of the Outer Banks into many of the park's attractions.

The Twin Tides Wave Pool delivers an ocean-simulated current with "dual beachfront" entrance points opposite ends.

The Deep Six Adventure Lagoon has a climb, crawl and balance soft mat obstacles and swim zones.

Calico Jack's Cove offers an immersive, multi-level, pirate-themed, play structure, offering waterslides and interactive water effects.

There are also dozens of private cabanas peppered around the park to offer places to chill with shaded seating areas and multiple food and beverage outlets to deliver variety and quality from snacks to gourmet.

The waterpark is located at 8526 Caratoke Hwy., Powells Point, N.C. 27966.
