The FlowRider’s expansive trampoline-like surface allows for two simultaneous riders at a time and accommodates as many as 200 riders an hour. Guests are also invited to participate in our FlowRider Light Nights! Starting at dusks, the FlowRider will light up with a mesmerizing display of lights that pulse and sync with music. It’s surfing like you’ve never seen before!
The best part? The opportunity to ride the FlowRider is included with water park admission! Participants must be a minimum of 42” to bodyboard and a minimum of 48” to surf (stand).

Watch Our Best Instructors Perform Tricks
Yes! Each & every rider on the FlowRider will receive guidance and advice from a helpful surf instructor. If you are interested in a more personalized experience, Splash Lagoon is now offering private surf lessons with 60 minutes of reserved time on the attraction. Instructors will guide you & your friends through multiple skills. Private lessons are built for groups of up to 10 participants, but additional participants may be added for a small fee. Visit splashlagoon.com/flowrider for details.
Standing or surfing on the FlowRider is an advanced skill, which may require several visits or the completion of a private surf lesson. Standing or surfing is only permitted while the ride is operating with one rider at a time. If the FlowRider is operating with two riding lanes, standing will not be permitted. Those especially interested in learning to surf are encouraged to sign up for a personal surf lesson.
The FlowRider at Splash Lagoon is built to accommodate two riders as they kneel on the bodyboard. In times when there are less riders waiting for the FlowRider, the barrier may be removed between the two riding lanes to create one large riding lane. With this larger lane configuration, only one rider is allowed on the attraction at a time, though standing and surfing will be permitted.
Splash Lagoon’s surf machine is built by the industry’s leading company, FlowRider. Our FlowRider features a trampoline-like tensioned fabric surface below the rushing water, which minimizes the force of your impact. The force of the rushing water will quickly push you and the board up the wave. You will drift into a secure Recovery Area at the top of the attraction.
There is no additional cost to ride the FlowRider. The ride is included with your admission to the water park.
The FlowRider experience allows for a minimum ride of 45 seconds. Depending on your ability level, you may be able to ride the FlowRider for 60 to 120 seconds. There’s no limit to the number of times you may ride the FlowRider during your visit.
Regardless of time, if you fall while on the ride three times – your experience will be done.
Upon your first visit to the FlowRider, you will be guided through your experience by our helpful surf instructors. They will demonstrate the correct way to position yourself on the bodyboard, and help you enter the surf zone. During your first ride, you’ll kneel on the bodyboard and focus on learning to balance and maneuver the wave. As you progress, you will soon learn to perform spins and flips. Eventually, you may learn to stand and surf on the more advanced flowboard.
The FlowRider has a minimum height requirement of 42” for the bodyboard (kneeling). You must be at least 48″ to attempt surfing (standing). There is no need to have experience surfing, our helpful surf instructors will guide you through your first experience on the wave.
