Paradise Cove At CB Smith Park
The Paradise Cove water park at CB Smith is the largest water park in the Fort Lauderdale/Broward County area and because of this, it does not need to run on sessions. The entrance fee to get into this water park is also a bit higher.
There are four different play areas at the Paradise Cove water park. Depending on whether you’re going with toddlers or teenagers, aunts and uncles and grandparents, there’s an area geared for everyone.
There’s a wooden stairway that leads you high above where you’ll get a nice panoramic view of the Paradise Cove water park as well as the C.B. Smith park grounds below.
Near the top of the stairs, the line breaks off in two – one for the green slide and the other for the blue slide. There’s a kind of entry pool you step into before you sit on the slide and away you go!
We only went on the green slide (the wait line was long!) where apparently there’s a dip in the end. I thought it was quite fast (I was almost laying horizontal on my back as I went down the water slide. One of the girls sat upright the whole time going down and thought that the slide wasn’t so fast). The blue slide it seems has a couple of dips in the middle and goes much faster.
You’ll plunge into an exit pool at the end of the slides. The exit pool is 36 inches deep (0.914 meters) and most likely your head will go underwater for a second or two after the ride.
Be careful if you’re wearing glasses, sunglasses or a hat. Hold on to them! I didn’t realize that final plunge into the exit pool would go so fast, and I lost my glasses in the impact and as I went underwater.
Once in the exit pool you do have to get out immediately to avoid incoming sliders. One of the lifeguards dove in to retrieve them for me and I’m very grateful for that. I’m blind as a bat without my glasses!
A day at the Paradise Cove water park is a great way to cool off from the heat of the summer. Have fun splashing!
