Showboat Atlantic City will be hosting the groundbreaking for its latest and most anticipated family entertainment venue, the Island Waterpark at Showboat Atlantic City.

We have confirmed that the official groundbreaking for Blatstein’s Island Waterpark at Showboat Atlantic City is set for Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 10:30 a.m.

Blatstein reports that the Island waterpark will be the largest beachfront indoor waterpark in the world. This will be a more than $100 million project.

Philadelphia developer Bart Blatstein is doubling down on his promise to bring non-casino attractions to Atlantic City by adding another family-friendly entertainment concept. Earlier, Blatstein successfully developed and implemented Showboat Atlantic City’s 100,000 square feet Lucky Snake arcade and sports bar.

The Island Waterpark at Showboat Atlantic City will be a 103,000-square-foot, year-round indoor waterpark that will feature:

  • Water slides
  • Pools
  • Lazy river
  • Food and beverage
  • Retail outlets
  • Lounge areas
  • Party rooms

There will be a retractable glass-pane roof that will cover the entire project to make it a year-round destination.

It will be constructed on the New Jersey Avenue beach block lot adjacent to Showboat Atlantic City.

Blatstein will be joined at the Atlantic City groundbreaking ceremony by Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small, along with other New Jersey political, community, and business leaders.
