OWA Waterpark, Foley, Alabama
OWA which means Big Water is an entertainment destination, 7 miles from the Gulf of Mexico in Foley, Alabama. Unveiled in 2016 by the Tribal Chair and CEO of The Poarch Band of Creek Indians, OWA is now a Gulf Coast destination not to be missed. Opened in 2017, the project consists of a Sports Tourism Complex, a Theme Park and Downtown OWA; a retail and restaurant district connecting all of the amenities.
Coming in 2021 will be Phase 2, the newest part of the site. Included in this second $100 million dollar expansion will be the new OWA Waterpark, an RV park and a 200 room resort hotel.
The 65,000 sf indoor retractable roof waterpark will not only be the largest of its kind on the Gulf Coast, but will include an incredible feature, a retractable wall that opens from the indoor waterpark to the adjacent outdoor wave pool.
The Retractable Wall is 128ft wide and 26 ft tall and slides open to fully allow guests to flow from indoors to out in a seamless experience. The 3,400 sf opening will ensure that this unique waterpark is one of a kind!
