“The best experience of a water park.”
Review of Kahuna Laguna

Owner description: The ocean has COME TO New Hampshire! Dive into a tropical adventure with the entire family at Kahuna Laguna, northern New England’s first indoor water park at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort in North Conway, NH. It’s 40,000 square feet of splash-tacular fun! Zoom through one of four high-speed tubes before splashing into the landing pool below. Body surf in the swirling wave pool. Square off against your friends in an exciting game of water basketball or volleyball. And watch out for the 150-gallon tipping bucket! The whole family will enjoy the activity pool, water cannons and play tower, and your smallest kahunas will have a great time in the shallow pool, an area designed with them in mind. The Tiki Tide Café is ready with a snack or lunch when you need a break. And, the family fun center is the place for the latest arcade games. Red Jacket Mountain View Resort is located on 40 scenic acres in the heart of the White Mountains, with sweeping panoramic views of the surrounding area. The resort features 150 recently renovated rooms, casual family restaurants and fine dining, a full-service spa and trails for hiking or walking.Guests of the resort may enjoy Kahuna Laguna all year, and during the warmer months the new outdoor pool will also be open. In the winter, you won’t even have to step outside to enter our 82-degree tropical oasis in the middle of the mountains – and you’ll have a great view of the valley through the water park’s glass walls.

“Wonderful way to end vacation!!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Kahuna Laguna continues to be one of my son's favorite places. We live two hours away, and can not come as often as we would like. Alexander, like many kiddos with Autism, loves the water. Kahuna Laguna is always clean, and even when the hotel is at full capacity, the volume in the water park is never overwhelming. Crowds and noise can be a problem for Alexander, and we have never once had a problem here. I am 100% confident that Alexander is safe here, so long as he follows the posted regulations. He does, and therefore we have never had an issue arise where we have needed the skills of the lifeguards. I have seen them in action though, and I am certain they will be there for Alexander should he ever need them, and it is such great peace of mind as a mom. We will return in February and can not wait until we can come back and watch him enjoy himself so much again!!

“Great Waterpark!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Along with a great stay at Red Jacket Mountain View Resort came a great visit to Kahuna Laguna. The water park was big enough that even with large crowds, there was still room to enjoy. Very warm inside and warm water!

It was our pleasure to have you join in the fun here at the Laguna! We have plenty of space to fill with smiles and laughs. A unique amenity for those that choose to stay and play. Be sure to check out our brand new four bedroom Presidential homes for a great vacation with friends or family. They are spectacular and only a short walk from the Waves!
Thank You,

“Birthday Party Must!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

I recently had my son's birthday party at the Kahuna Laguna in North Conway and let me tell you, this place is amazing. From booking the mezzanine, to the end of the party the staff at the water park made everything easy and stress free. The party included lunch, a private room, use of the water slides and tokens to the arcade-- all at a reasonable price. The kids had a blast, the adults did too. This was my second experience at the Kahuna Laguna and I will continue to go back!!! Love it..
