Big Splash Water Park

4707 East 21st Street

Big Splash Water Park opened in May of 1984.  After having been open just two weekends, Tulsa experienced its biggest flood on May 26-27, Memorial Day weekend.  Big Splash was closed for many weeks after this, as the park suffered extensive damage.  The water park back then had only one Kiddie-pool and no Master Blaster, but to this day, since the park opened in 1984, Big Splash still has the biggest wave pool in the Southwest.

Over a 30 year period there have been many changes to the Water Park.  In 1995, Management added the renowned Master Blaster to its attractions, the second to be installed and operated in the country at that time.  Through the 2001 swim season, the lifeguards were Red Cross certified.  Beginning in 2002, the park teamed up with Ellis and Associates.  All lifeguards are required to have a license good for only one year, thus requiring continued licensing each year.  In-service is also required each and every month to keep the license valid.  Unannounced audits are also done throughout the summer by Ellis and Associates.  Big Splash is very proud of its safety record.

Since 2002, new slides have been added to the Kiddie-pool area, new cabanas have been placed throughout the entire park, and new umbrellas and carpet have been added to the park as well.  

To this day, updates are being made with new computer technology, both in the offices and the park. This year alone, our wave pool has been installed with the latest technology to maximize your enjoyment.

Joe has done such a great job updating this place. All the new reptile attractions are awesome additions. The staff are so helpful and always smiling and friendly. Great price on the food. We really appreciate having such a fun place to enjoy the hot summers. Keep up the great work and all the attractions your bringing in.

I give it a one star because of the outrageous hours. I work and would love to go at the end of my day and relax there, but there's no way. The park should be open at least until 9 pm or even 10 pm. It doesn't even get dark until 9! Give working people a chance to come during the week, too! Such a bad decision to close so early and lose a ton of money! Bad business decision there, so what other bad decisions are being made?

I went to Safari Joes last year for my birthday with some friends! I absolutely loved the fact that I could kick back pool side with a cold beer! This place has it all for any age range! My friends and I danced, swam and had an absolute blast! The wave pool is amazing!!! however I wouldn't recommend going out to deep in it if you can swim. Looking forward to going back this season!

Nice park. Fairly small. I'm glad the tickets were free with the Oklahoma Blood Institute. I definitely saw a rat run across from the tortoise pen to the frog statue.
