Can you enjoy the water park and the amusement park in the same day?

The cool thing about Lagoon-A-Beach is that admission to the water park is included with an all-day park pass. You can easily do both in the same day, but your enjoyment will depend on how busy both parks are. Lines for some of the more popular rides can easily last an hour or more during peaks, which limits the number of rides you’ll get in a day if you split your time between the two parks.

Pro Tip: Claim your chairs before you worry about the rest of it.

The best chairs go fast. On hotter days, the chairs with access to the most shade tend to go the fastest. Before you worry about getting tubes or figuring out what slides you want to go on first, it’s best to claim your chairs.

Camping Options

It’s entirely possible to leave Twin and make a day trip of the water park, but you can take advantage of on-site camping at Lagoon if you want to stay a while. Lagoon rents tent sites or pull-thru RV sites, compete with all the hookups. You can see all camping options and costs on the Lagoon Website.
