Palm Island Indoor Water Park
BATAVIA, N.Y. - A large ribbon cutting marked the opening of Western New York's latest attraction. The Palm Island Indoor Water Park is now open and ready to serve as a winter escape in Batavia.
The park boasts two 24' tall fully enclosed body slides, a children's play area called Monsoon Lagoon, an underwater lighted pool and more. The park will also open an outdoor pool for the summer months.
The park is attached to the Clarion hotel. Owner Chan Patel says the hotel decided to build the attraction to increase attendance during the winter months. Patel says this allows him to keep all his workers employed during the off-season and even hire up to 20 more.
The next closest water park is in Erie, Pa, making the Palm Island the first such attraction in Western New York. For more information on the park or to book a party, you can visit their website.
