Features & Attractions
Get lost in a tropical paradise at Volcano Island Waterpark, Sterling’s favorite place to cool off and have fun! Located within Algonkian Regional Park, Volcano Island is loaded with fun features for adults and kids.
Our waterslides offer a pair of riveting rides, including 230 feet of fun on the open slide, or a thrilling 170 foot ride in complete darkness on the closed slide!
A large main pool offers splashing and swimming space for everyone – and includes an awesome tree stump slide – a fast, quick ride that delivers guests into four feet of cool water!
The centerpiece of Volcano Island is a huge play feature that has fountains, squirters, platforms and of course, a giant 500-gallon dumping bucket. Positioned in shallow water, the play feature is great for young and old alike. The shallow area also features a small kiddie slide.
And there’s more! Our splash pad offers water cannons, showers, sprinklers, buckets and more – a great place for the kids and you too.
Our challenging and fun miniature golf course is right next to the waterpark, and offers 18 holes of fun.
Of course your day wouldn’t be complete without food, drinks and more - available at the Paradise Café.
The Paradise Cafe is stocked with all your favorites! Sit outside under the large shade umbrellas and enjoy a great lunch, then head back and cool off under the bucket!

The park is very clean, has friendly and helpful staff, lifeguards on duty are always paying attention and ready to help.
This is a great place to enjoy with the kids. Last week, it was my first time here with my daughter and friends. They had a great time! It’s like a small version of the Water Mine Waterpark but loved it because your kids playing in the pools are visible from wherever you’re sitting.
