Royal Caribbean is about to reset all your expectations for what a beach day can be. CocoCay, its much-loved Bahamas escape, is getting a revolutionary, $200 million sand-to-sky makeover, with all-new adventures for every type of vacationer. And once completed, you’ll easily appreciate the meaning behind the aptly named Perfect Day at CocoCay.
      Get ready for gallons of adventure in the heart of the island, Thrill Waterpark—home to the tallest waterslide in North America, Daredevil’s Peak, a 135-foot plunge. And that’s just one of 13 slides at the park across two towers. After conquering Daredevil’s Peak, experience the other thrilling chutes of Daredevil’s Tower. You can race a friend down the twin Dueling Demons with an addictively frightening drop. The Screeching Serpent will have you doing just that (in a good way) all the way down a fully vertical speed slide. And face the coils of the Green Mamba, a don’t-miss aqua tube slide.
      You’ll find another entire set of adventures at Thrill Waterpark’s Family Tower. But don’t let the name fool you—because its six awesome slides are anything but tame. On The Slingshot, four at a time can share a raft and experience a zero-gravity moment before freefalling. Grab a buddy for the two-person winding tube slide, The Twister. Or let your competitive side roam free on the four-lane Splash Speedway racers.
      And no visit to Thrill Waterpark will be complete without a dip in the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, complete with a countdown clock that signals the big wipeout.
    The kids can leave their cares behind with an entire section of thrills just for them. Royal Caribbean is already known for Splashaway Bay, the fan-favorite children’s aqua park onboard its ships. Now it’s going ashore at Perfect Day at CocoCay and it’s bigger than ever, with more fountains, sprinklers, geysers and water cannons, plus five slides and two massive drench buckets. All in all, no island has more ways to get soaked.
      But you don’t have to get wet to enjoy the fun. Take things up a notch, literally, on 1,600 feet of zip line, with the only water landing in the Bahamas. Or go even higher—up to 450 feet above land and sea—onboard the Up, Up and Away helium balloon which gives “view from the top” a whole
    new meaning.
      Perfect Day at CocoCay will be more than slides and rides—three beach areas make the island the ultimate sun soaking escape. Chill Island maxes out the relaxation while South Beach is the go-to spot for those who like to get their game on. Volleyball, beachside basketball, paddle boarding, kayaking, and even zorbing amp up the excitement. Be sure to refuel over burgers, sandwiches, salads and more at the Snack Shack. And to quench your thirst, wade on over to the floating bar just offshore.
    For those seeking the ultimate in luxury, head to Coco Beach Club —an upscale take on the island’s authentic Caribbean vibe. Spend the afternoon in the comfort of the only overwater cabanas in the Bahamas, each complete with its own hammock, freshwater shower and a slide that plunges you into the ocean. Take a dip in the beachfront infinity edge pool with in-water loungers. And indulge in Mediterranean flavors at the Club’s exclusive on-site restaurant.
    Experience all this and more when Perfect Day at CocoCay is completed in May 2019.
