AAA Editor Notes
Darien Lake Resort is 6 mi. s. of I-90 exit 48A on SR 77 at 9993 Allegheny Rd. This entertainment complex comprising Darien Lake Theme Park and SplashTown Water Park offers more than 100 rides, live shows and attractions. The park's six roller coasters include Ride of Steel, one of the Northeast's tallest coasters.
Highlights include Swirl City Slide Complex, featuring four different slide experiences, and The Big Kahuna, an extreme tubing experience where passengers twist and splash along a triple-dip, spiraling slide and speed through a section of enclosed, dark track before bursting into the sunshine in a cool catch pool. Tornado is a six-story water attraction shaped like a giant funnel; more wet fun awaits at the Hook's Lagoon water park.
Camping is permitted. Food is available.
