When I say Lazy Crazy River, Cowbunga Kids, and Rainbow Rapids, where and what am I talking about? It's pure fun, not such a big place, and a perfect place for families on a hot day at the Jersey Shore.

If you're from Ocean County and know the waterparks at the Jersey Shore, you know about this hidden gem. Yes, a hidden gem in New Jersey, according to onlyinyourstate.com.

From the Thundering Surf Waterpark Facebook page:

This hidden gem and recently I found out this is the longs running waterpark in America, Thundering Surf Waterpark in Beach Haven. I remember when Abby was little, we would go to this waterpark because it's perfect for families. It's a little smaller than some of the other bigger waterparks in the state and I always felt she was safe.

From the Thundering Surf Waterpark Facebook page:

Thundering Surf Waterpark began in 1977 with four concrete waterslides, according to their website. WOW, they have grown since then. It doesn't matter how old you are, you will have fun at this waterpark.

My favorite is the lazy river. It's an excellent lazy river, a perfect way to cool down on a hot day at the Shore. If you like to just relax, hanging in one of their incredible cabanas is a great way to cool down and like I said, relax.
