Calypso Theme Waterpark

Calypso Theme Waterpark

Early June to early September 2014

Big summer fun awaits you at Calypso Theme Waterpark. The largest theme waterpark in Canada, Calypso covers more than 100 acres, with wet and wild adventures for everyone. Looking to slip and slide? Well, they have more than 35 waterslides to race down. Prefer to take on the waves? You’re in luck, as they have Canada’s largest wave pool. Hankering for a thrill ride? You can take on Aqualoops, a roller coaster-like slide that drops you into the ride through a trap door! All this fun can be had just a short 20-minute drive east of downtown Ottawa.
