Safety is everyones responsibility
We strongly believe that safety is everyone's responsibility, especially when it comes to water safety. Guests may encounter areas of the park that have no lifeguard or a limited lifeguard presence. These areas will be clearly marked for easy identification. Regardless of whether a lifeguard is present, children or weak swimmers of any age must be accompanied or supervised by someone while in the water. Parents, guardians, and chaperones are the first line of defense when it comes to water safety and should always supervise children and weak swimmers. Guests are encouraged to use their own life jackets during their visit. In an assortment of sizes, Lifejackets are readily available for complimentary use and are conveniently located just inside the main entrance of the park. Coast Guard Type II life jackets are recommended for maximum safety and protection. To check the style of your own personal lifejacket, you can typically find the designation inside the device.
Industry Leading Attractions
Our biggest and best expansion project yet. This state of the art water complex will entertain the entire family for hours! Watch out though, you WILL get wet!
1/4 mile lazy river gently sweeps riders around the waterpark passing under a covered bridge and past waterfalls. Unwind as you float around the Whales Tale Waterpark on a ride that never has to end.
Riders have the choice to use the attraction with a boogie board or a surfboard.
Eye of the Storm
This attraction is the latest in waterpark thrill ride technology. After travelling down a dark, enclosed tube at a 50 degree angle, riders are thrust into the light as they enter the “eye of the storm” at speeds of up to 35mph. Rotations are made around the sloped bowl until an inevitable 4′ drop is taken into the pool below. Awesome! A crowd pleaser. Take a spin yourself or climb to the first landing to watch the fun.
Come get away from it all in our 85 foot heated pool, surrounded with three giant hot tubs.
This 360′ tube ride lets the little ones get in on the action. No height restriction and a gentle figure 8 course makes this attraction a family favorite.
400′ long and nearly 7ft. wide this attraction sends from 1-3 riders down a bobsled style course. Built in the summer of 2000, the Harpoon Express combines a thrill and family ride into one.
Take the Plunge if you dare. Experience our dual speed slides and reach speeds of up to 40mph. Riders can race each other and prove once and for all who is the fastest.
Prepare yourself for the most epic of watery quarterpipes this side of the Mississippi. The Banzai Pipeline sends you into the quarterpipe at top speeds – so hold on tight and experience the Banzai rush!
Whale Harbor Whale Harbor is the perfect attraction for little children who…
Riders of Poseidon’s Voyage begin in the SkyBox; a nearly vertical launch capsule, which is the steepest drop in the industry, with a trap door on the bottom. Tension builds as you hear your heart pounding. Then adrenaline kicks in as the floor suddenly drops out and you accelerate to the top speed of 38 feet per second. Powerful G-Forces glue you to the wall the entire way around the tight 360° SuperLOOP.
Willie’s Wild Waves
At the Whale’s Tale Water Park, the whole family can play in the only wave pool in the White Mountains. Ride the big waves or relax in the gentle ones at the shallow end. No need to worry about sand or salt. A splashing good time awaits you at the Whale’s Tale Water Park. Streak down the speed slides, twist through the flume slides, or splash down the 360 foot tube ride with clean, clear filtered water.
When you visit our park you can feel confident that you're in a safe and healthy environment. If you are unhappy with your visit or it's just not for you, please go to the gift shop within an hour of your arrival and we will make it right with our satisfaction guarantee.

“By far the friendliest and cleanest water park I’ve been too. It’s on the smaller side but I’d choose to go here versus the other options close to me!”
“My family, friends and I went to Whale’s Tale yesterday and had a blast! Chris, the bartender, was pleasant and personable. Emily Watson, who was one of the water slide attendants, was so kind, friendly and attentive. We made awesome memories and are already looking forward to going back next year!”
“My granddaughter had never been and can’t wait to go back. She said of all the New Hampshire parks, this one is by far the best! She’s been to most of them.”
