Shaka-Laka Shores, a splash and play zone, will open in late March, the water park has announced. It will feature 25 play elements and a variety of interactive aquatic components.

“Shaka-Laka Shores’ vibrant and interactive elements are bound to provide our youngest guests with a playful space to splash and explore,” park president Neal Thurman said in a statement. “Shaka-Laka Shores will bundle the elements of excitement and interactivity to serve as another great option for families experiencing Adventure Island.”

The splash area will be located near the entrance of the park and highlight the park’s tropical paradise theme.

The new kid-friendly area is part of the water park’s largest expansion in decades. Other additions include last year’s new attractions — Rapids Racer and Wahoo Remix —  as well as a redesigned entrance and new lounging areas.

Adventure Island, located across the street from Busch Gardens, will reopen for the season on March 4.
