Every temperament from timid to thrill-seeking is served at this 25-acre water park. Float on a lazy river or brave a seven-story waterslide and the football-field-sized wave pool with bodysurfable rides. Such splashy fun doesn’t come cheap; some activities cost extra and parking is $10.

Bus 40 takes 1¼ hours to get here from the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu; it runs every half-hour between 8:30am and 6:30pm.
