Fun at the Camelot Golfland Water Slides

cheap-oc-waterslides-camelot-fun-things-to-do with summer coming to the end, and i running out of ideas on how to entertain the kiddies, i decided we needed to get out of the house and try something new. i have been wanting to take my kids to the Camelot Golfland Water Slides for years, but i have been waiting for the oldest to be tall enough, and brave enough to go on them, and it just never fit into our schedules. last we we finally made it over to the water slides and i am so glad we did!

the Water Slides are located on the gold course of Camelot Golfland. you can purchase tickets at the golf rentals for only $8.50 for all-day or $5.50 after 3pm. we arrived at 3 o’clock because i knew it would be less crowded in the afternoon, i wasn’t sure how long the kids would ride the slides, and $5.50 is an awesome deal.


i actually used to be a lifeguard for 3 years at these watersides when i was in high school, so it was kind of sentimental to finally take my boys. the slide area is a little run down now, but there are bleachers to sit and watch the sliders, picnic tables if you bring food, and lifeguards there watching the pools at all times. so it is still a great family activity.

to slide down the water slides, you need a tube. you can choose a double or a single tube, and you have to carry it up to the top of the slides! climbing to the top is the scariest part…the slides are actually pretty mild and not scary at all. Vann, my youngest was to short to ride them yet, as you have to be 42″ to ride. you don’t have to know how to swim though, because they allow lifejackets. they even provide them if you need ended up being the perfect afternoon activity and the boys had so much fun with the friends we invited to come with us.

best-oc-waterslides we spent two hours riding the slides and that was the perfect amount of time. we were practically the only ones there, so they went down at least 20 i am so glad we finally got over to the Camelot Water Slides! hopefully we can go one more time this summer.waterslides-camelot

Buccaneer Cove at Boomers! in Irvine


have you heard? Boomers! Irvine has opened a new irvine water park called Buccaneer Cove. a pirate’s oasis full of splashing fun and 4 different water slides for all to enjoy.  Buccaneer Cove is located off the 405 freeway at Culver within Boomers!. we took the kiddies there this weekend to check it out…what a fun place!


Buccaneer Cove is a giant play structure that has many different great water features. since it is pirate themed, beware of skeleton skulls and a pirate ship masts. you can even try sailing away at the helm.  there are 3 bigger tube slides on the west side of Buccaneer Cove which are perfect for bigger kids and even adults. the kids thought they were very fun.


and then there is a smaller slide that even toddlers will enjoy and easily accessible for parents to help their children get “on” and “off” of. the area in front of the play structure is filled with water spouts and water structures, so even little ones can run around and have fun.


there are chairs and bathrooms located on the premises, and if you would like to rent a cabana, that is available to guests. there is also a grassy area next to the slides where you could have a picnic lunch. food is available for purchase in the Boomers! arcade area.


the kids had a blast checking out Buccaneer Cove, the perfect place to be on a hot summer day.
