Next to Six Flags Magic Mountain is this jungle-themed, 22-acre water park where you can chill in a tropical lagoon, brave churning wave pools and plunge down wicked high-speed slides with names like Banzai Pipeline and Taboo Tower.

Hurricane Harbor is open daily from mid-June through mid-August, with shorter hours extending to late May and late September – opening hours and days vary, so check the website. It is closed during colder months.
