More splashes coming to The Funplex East Hanover Water Park this June

By | May 26, 2023

EAST HANOVER, N.J. — The Funplex East Hanover is growing again with the addition of The Island, an interactive water play structure. Located in the back of the park and opening in June, The Island will add something for everyone to the already popular Splashplex Waterpark.

A staple in water parks across the country, this multi-level, interactive water play structure offers a hub of fun for young families.

Manufactured by WhiteWater and reaching 26 feet at its highest point, The Island will engage families all summer long with over 13 interactive features including:

  • 3 slides,
  • 7 splash toys,
  • 3 spray cannons,
  • and an iconic, 264-gallon tipping bucket towering 22 feet above the beach themed play area.

“We are excited to offer our guests a new opportunity to create memories this summer,” said Funplex CEO Brian Williams. “This play structure will open up an underutilized area of the waterpark, creating more space for guests to spread out and enjoy the park this summer.”

In addition to the new 3,380 square foot attraction, The Funplex will add additional seating, deck space, and 6 new, private cabanas. Starting at $150, cabanas offer an exclusive, luxury resort-like experience where guests enjoy a little R&R while their kids soak up water park thrills. Each cabana features:

  • Private seating for up to 7 guests with a dining table, and two lounge chairs,
  • A shade structure,
  • Wifi and a flat screen TV,
  • Bottled water, a refrigerator, and preferred food and beverage service.

Also new for 2023, The Funplex will add a full-service Dippin’ Dots kiosk featuring eight flavors, a glow- in-the-dark bubble wand cart, and new menu options including corn dogs, a Jumbo Nathan’s Hot Dog, fried pickles, and assorted chicken sandwiches. Additionally, the park added a new snack cart with items such as Hershey’s ice cream, chips, fudge, and other prepackaged sweets.
