Alabama Splash Adventure originally opened as Visionland in 1998. Visionland was born from the collaboration of 11 cities to build an amusement and water park in the Birmingham area. By 2006 the park known as Alabama Adventure was under private ownership. In 2012, ownership decided to focus on the waterpark portion of the park and remove the amusement rides. This coincided with a name change to Splash Adventure Waterpark.
After 2 years of operating as a waterpark, the park was sold to the Koch family in March 2014. The family, consisting of mother Pat “The General” Koch and son Dan Koch, have over 60 years of experience in the amusement and waterpark industry. They set out to rebuild the park and make it bigger and better than ever. Over the past 4 years, the Kochs have added nine amusement attractions to the park, restored the world famous Rampage wooden roller coaster, and introduced many valuable extras such as free parking, free soft drinks, free sunscreen, and free inner tubes. To better describe the offerings available to guests, the Kochs also renamed the park to Alabama Splash Adventure.
As Alabama Splash Adventure enters its fourth season under the Kochs’ ownership, the future is brighter than ever. The whole crew works to improve the guest experience, and it shows in the fresh paint, faster service, every day value, and commitment to the community. Visit us and see for yourself!
