Non-resort guests are now able to avail themselves of Baha Mar’s waterpark as they officially begin offering day passes today at an introductory rate for a limited time.
“We’re thrilled to open Baha Bay’s doors to Bahamian residents and travelers visiting our beautiful islands,” said Graeme Davis, president, Baha Mar. “Baha Bay is the perfect place to spend a spectacular day for visitors of all ages, adding just another incredible option to Baha Mar’s luxury of choice experience guests know and love.”
In addition to the Baha Bay’s over 30 attractions, day guests can reserve cabanas and loungers to relax and enjoy the waterpark in comfort and style.
Visitors can expect exhilarating speed slides, a dueling water coaster, group raft rides, a wave pool and action river, a first of its kind surf simulator, multiple kids splash zones and more.
You can test your mettle on Thunderball, which is said to not be for the faint of heart, and is an extreme freefall slide – a super-fast, straight down plummet that delivers an unforgettable rush – and is just one of a number of thrill slides among a 24-slide complement.
Then hold on tight for the Cyclone Rush where you ride out the storm on a multi-purpose raft that speeds around a huge swirling bowl, then up and back down a nearly vertical wall.
Hammerhead features high speeds and huge thrills: This multi-purpose raft slide rockets riders through tunnels, then up and around the walls of massive water saucers. And if you still have gumption left in you, the Devil’s Backbone has to be given a go because it will feel like the floor drops out from under you before you blast through looping and twisting tunnels that will keep you screaming until the end.
Then grab a friend for the Dueling Riptide Coaster where you’ll rocket through tunnels, spin around saucers and dive down steep slopes; this high-speed water coaster is a one-of-a-kind blast. You can also experience the thrill of surfing – with no lessons required – on The Surf, a fun FlowCurl surf simulator. And if by chance you still have a little bravado left at all, take a turn on Pirate’s Plunge, a high-action body slide that takes you through back-to-back turns and 360-degree loops before a final freefall plunge into the pool.
Thrill seekers can definitely “slake their adrenaline thirst” at Baha Bay, and after all the adrenaline rush, can chill out at Baha Bay Lagoon where they can wade out into the water from the beach area and ride the tides in a 500,000-gallon wave pool; or exhale and enjoy the island breeze as The River currents take them on a journey.
The kids have definitely not been left out. There is Stingray Cove where they speed down twisty slides, get drenched by the tipping bucket and splash through the battle zone in this kids’ area designed for maximum adventure. At Turtle Beach, kiddies can splash, slide and play all day in a place built just for the smallest guests. The kids can race their friends down slides that are just their size, and splash around in shallow pools.
Prior to the announcement of the waterpark opening to non-hotel guests, access to the waterpark was exclusive to Baha Mar resort guests.
The waterpark is set on 15 lush oceanfront acres directly adjacent to Baha Mar. It also features luxury cabanas, elevated and cuisine.
Baha Bay also boasts an expansive selection of al fresco dining, allowing guests to indulge in a variety of cuisine options at The Market.
SBE is known for creating unforgettable culinary experiences. At The Market, you can expect to experience elevated casual fare from four of SBE’s iconic brands – Cleo Grill, Sam’s Crispy Chicken, Plant Nation and Chill.
Cleo Grill brings Mediterranean Street Food to elevated fast casual dining, where new yet familiar flavors are enhanced by worldly charm and Bahamian ingredients.
Sam’s Crispy Chicken, they say, is where the chicken comes first – fried or grilled; bold or tame; dripping with yolk or piled high with “avo” – whatever your foodie cravings, at Sam’s Crispy Chicken, they say they are what you need.
Plant Nation merges healthy ingredients and globally-inspired flavors to create one-of-a-kind plant-based dishes with all of the taste and none of the guilt.
Chill offers a contemporary beverage menu based on classic tropical frozen drinks as well as carefully crafted frozen cocktail classics.
Additional individual restaurants include the famed Sugar Factory, Umami Burger and Barracuda food trucks.
Sugar Factory, named “the most Instagrammed restaurant in the United States” is an eatery and sweet shop known for its lavish dining room, legendary desserts and premium cocktails.
Umami Burger, originally invented and made famous in Los Angeles, are must-try burgers.
Barracuda is a youthful celebration of summertime at the seashore. The menu, according to Baha Mar officials, is full of timeless classics that taste best with sand between your toes and saltwater in your hair.
