Splash Island

One of Hendricks County’s most popular destinations for family fun in the spring and summer can be found in Plainfield at Splash Island Family Waterpark. The 4 ½-acre Caribbean-themed outdoor waterpark, which is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day Weekend, features three waterslides, a 900-foot leisure river, an interactive children’s play area and more.

Insider Tips

Want the inside scoop on when to visit, what to bring and anything else you want to know before going to Splash Island? Browse through these top tips below:

Arrive Early

Splash Island officials have a policy that they do not schedule large group outings any sooner than noon.  So, if you want to beat the crowds and lock down one of those prime, shady locations underneath one of their massive “funbrellas,” arrive in the morning.

Come Later

We just suggested getting there early. But if you just aren’t a morning person, you may want to wait until after 3 p.m. when crowds begin to taper off. The only downside is you still must pay the full-day price.

Carpool if Possible

Parking is sometimes a challenge especially on those extremely hot days.  By carpooling with friends and family, you not only save valuable pool time by not looking for multiple places to park, but other visitors will appreciate it as well.

More for Your Money

Many visitors don’t realize that a pass to Splash Island also gets them into the adjacent indoor Recreation Center, which has several additional amenities including a children’s play area, an indoor water park, a running track, exercise equipment and more.

Bring It

As part of its family-friendly appeal, Splash Island allows visitors to bring their own chairs, coolers and food into the park. The food, however, must be from home. They do not allow restaurant food. They do have SnacKabana, which serves pizza, hot dogs and other snacks, but for the cost-conscious and health-conscious consumer, brown bags are welcome at Splash Island.

Forget It?

If you forget something, the facility has a small retail shop inside the adjoining Recreation Center. Items for sale include goggles, towels, T-shirts and much more.
