Sands Experience: Wild Water & Wheels


Get your thrills in the water and on the asphalt at this waterpark/go-kart track in Garden City Beach. Featuring dozens of aquatic attractions and racetracks, Wild Water & Wheels is your one-stop spot for family fun.

Take a ride on the wild side at one of the 24 waterslides, including the Speed Slides and Mat Slides, or take a more relaxing dip in the wave pool or lazy river. And for the little ones, there’s a kiddie aquatic playground where they can splash and play while also being safe and sound.

Go-kart racing isn’t the only other entertainment option for guests. A miniature golf course, bumper boats and a state-of-the-art arcade complete with high-tech interactive games and old-school carnival games create an ideal place for family fun. Guests can also grab lunch at the snack bar and relax in the poolside lounge chairs.

Best of all, guests at any Sand Resorts family of hotels receive free admission to Wild Water & Wheels, which is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The park hosts “Live at Five Fridays,” featuring live music played poolside and other special events. For more information, visit
