Showboat Atlantic City has broken ground for the Island Waterpark.

Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small joined the hotel's owner for the ceremony that occurred Wednesday, January 12th.

Blatstein reports that the ISLAND waterpark will be the largest indoor waterpark in the world. This will be a more than $100 million project.

Philadelphia developer Bart Blatstein is doubling down on his promise to bring non-casino attractions to Atlantic City by adding another family-friendly entertainment concept. Earlier, Blatstein successfully developed and implemented Showboat Atlantic City’s 100,000 square feet “Lucky Snake” arcade and sports bar.

The Island Waterpark at Showboat Atlantic City will be a 103,000-square-foot, year-round indoor waterpark that will feature:

  • Water slides
  • Pools
  • Lazy River
  • Food and Beverage
  • Retail Outlets
  • Lounge Areas
  • Party Rooms

There will be a retractable glass-pane roof that will cover the entire project to make it a year-round destination.
