Maui Jack’s Water Park is located along Maddox Boulevard, which is the main road running through Chincoteague Island, Virginia. The water park is beside the Chincoteague Island KOA Resort Campground and only a few miles from Assateague National Seashore.

The main building houses the ticket windows, a small surf shop, and restrooms. Upon entering and paying admission, you’ll be given a wristband to wear. This will serve as your entry pass all day (or evening if you purchase an evening ticket).

Maui Jack’s offers discounts for those staying at the Chincoteague Island KOA. These discount tickets must be purchased at the KOA office before heading to Maui Jack’s. There’s also an option to purchase discounted admission after 3 PM.

Slides

Maui Jack’s has two main slide towers. The larger tower has three slides descending from it. One slide is completely enclosed, one is half enclosed and half open, and the other is completely open.

All slides are body slides, so there’s no need to bring a tube with you up the stairs. Each slide moves at a brisk pace, with a fun splash down at the end.

The second slide tower is for the speed slides. There are two matching slides, so you can race a friend. These slides are fast with a sudden drop for the water park thrill seekers.

Kiddie Area

For the young kids, the center of the park is the place to be! There is a splash structure with several slides, a dump bucket, and some stand up splash toys for young children to enjoy.

The kiddie area is surrounded by lounge chairs, which may be a good place for families of young children to set up camp for the day. The water in this area is pretty shallow, but complimentary life jackets are available.

Lazy River

Maui Jack’s attractions include a lazy river that winds its way around the water park. The pace of the lazy river is nice, but the best part of their lazy river is the tubes!

Yes, this is the one lazy river I know of that the tubes are more like lounge chairs than fully round tubes. They are so much easier to get seated in, and they worked well for smaller children too. It made this lazy river even more enjoyable!

In case you prefer the traditional tubes, they do still have them as well. I even saw a few small tubes that would be another good option for smaller children.

Concessions

Keko’s Bar and Grill has many kid-friendly food options. Water park food staples such as burgers, pizza, chicken tenders, hot dogs, and fries are a sampling of the food they have available.

Tips for Visiting Maui Jacks

  • Grab some food from the concession stand and hop over to Keko’s Bar and Grill’s seating area to eat in their fun beach area. There’s corn hole, giant Connect Four, and a generally nice atmosphere.
  • There’s a significant amount of shaded seating available at Maui Jacks. Snag a seat under a giant umbrella or a spot under the shaded overhang from the roof at the back of the park.
  • Watch for the seagulls! They really like Keko’s food. As the sign at concession reads, “Don’t feed the locals”.
  • Maui Jack’s is one of the few places I’ve seen that offers complimentary sunscreen. How nice!
