Things to Do

Adrenaline junkies, look no further! Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are bursting with attractions offering big thrills. Here are four places to go to get your heart racing. 

OWA (all the things!)  

Drops, loops, twists, spins, and vertical acceleration can be found in the 21 amusement park rides at OWA. Whether you want to experience the big drops of Rollin’ Thunder or take a spin on Twister, the variety of rides gives guests the ability to choose just how daring they’re willing to be! Check out the full list of attractions – including family-friendly rides, big thrills, and kiddie attractions.  

Spinning Coaster and SkyCoaster at The Track  

Plenty of white-knuckle fun is happening at The Track in Gulf Shores. For years, the SkyCoaster has graced the bucket-list of families summering and spring breaking in Gulf Shores, and for good reason! Riders are pulled up 110 feet into the air, then released and soar through the sky at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. While you’re at The Track, be sure to check out the new Spinning Coaster for a (slightly) more tame experience!   

Waterville USA

Waterville USA offers you 20-acres of fun through our waterpark, amusement park and escape rooms. Located just 1/4 mile from the beach, we are in the heart of the beautiful resort community of Gulf Shores, Alabama. With over $10 million invested in new and improved attractions over the years, our parks and your memories just keep getting better. At Waterville USA, we are committed to your experience and that’s what keeps families coming back day after day, year after year, since 1986. 

Hummingbird Ziplines at The Wharf

Opening in fall of 2017, the Hummingbird Ziplines is a fun experience for the whole family! Soar through the air in this two hour sky-high adventure. Reservations are highly recommended, and participants must be at least 8 years old and weigh a minimum of 65 pounds.
