Splash Lagoon Expands Arcade With New Attractions, Rides

Yu can visit the arcade for free — no water park admission necessary!

Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park Resort has invested $1 million into expanding its Treasure Island Arcade, making it a destination of its own at nearly 10,000 square feet and more than 125 arcade experiences. It is now one of the largest and most unique arcades in the tristate area — and you can visit for free! That's right: You can visit without being a water park guest. 

The largest addition to Treasure Island Arcade is a brand new multi-sensory gaming theater named The XD Dark Ride. 

This state-of-the-art theater puts guests inside incredible 3D worlds with realistic motion and effects that coordinate with thrilling games shown on a special curved movie screen. 

Guests will battle enemies with electronic guns as their seat moves, rumbles, and vibrates in real-time. Guests will even feel the wind blowing across their face as they fly through realistic cityscapes, speed down a haunted roller coaster or jump aboard a train as it races down the track.

Plus treats and treasures

Visitors will also find a brand new Ice Cream Parlor scooping up a variety of signature flavors of Hershey’sIce Cream, sundaes, and milkshakes along with a wide selection of candies and snacks.

There's also the new Gemstone Mining Company, where children can mine for gemstones and rare artifacts in a stream of running water. Children can keep whatever they uncover as a souvenir!

These new attractions represent a new substantial investment, which adds to an already incredibly large and popular arcade facility which was recently expanded by 2,500 square feet to accommodate more than 30 new arcade games.

In 2019, Treasure Island Arcade introduced Hologate Virtual Reality which allows groups of 2-4 players to move their body and interact with immersive virtual worlds while competing for a high score.

“We are very proud of Treasure Island Arcade,” said Nick Scott Sr., President of Scott Enterprises, which owns and operates Splash Lagoon. “The arcade has been a popular component of Splash Lagoon for a number of years, but with these recent expansions and additions, there really is no other arcade in our region offering such exciting, high-tech new games and experiences.”
