New Splash Pad 2024!

Splash Pad - New 2024!

Introducing the Pirate Ship Themed Splash Pad Now Open!

Are you ready for some swashbuckling fun? We are excited to announce that we expanded our pool area and built a pirate ship themed splash pad for 2024! This is a project that we have been dreaming of for a long time, and we are proud to share it with you.

The pirate ship splash pad is a unique and memorable attraction for kids and adults alike. It features an interactive cannon, a ship's wheel, a treasure chest, and randomly squirting floor jets. You'll feel like you're on board a mighty man of war, ready to set sail for adventure.

The pirate ship splash pad is located next to our existing pool area, which offers plenty of space and shade for relaxing and cooling off. You'll also find our regular playground equipment and picnic areas nearby.

Our Progress

We started this project in summer 2023 and it is now open!.


The Kolar family acquired South Beach Resort, formerly Lindy's Cottages, in 1993. In 1994, my grandfather Walter built a large pirate ship sun deck next to the pool. Over the last 30 years, the pirate ship has needed repair and finally last year we decided it was time to replace it. Everyone loved the old pirate ship my grandfather built. And children have imagined being pirates since its creation. We are therefore naming the new pirate ship **Walter's Revenge** in his honor.

We hope you're as excited as we are about the New Pirate Ship. We believe it is a great addition to our resort and a wonderful experience for everyone who visits us. Thank you for choosing South Beach Resort as your vacation destination!
