The Plunge is an indoor swimming pool also from the days of the Roaring Twenties; what was originally a saltwater tank is now a freshwater pool which is adorned by a beautiful painting entitled “Orcas off Point Loma”.The Tilt-A-Whirl, the Vertical Plunge (a dead drop of 3 stories from the top of a tower), the Wave House Athletic Club and the Liberty Carousel are all crowd favorites. The Wave House Bar and Grill is notable for its two artificial waves, the larger of which is an 8 foot Flow Barrel by the name Bruticus Maximus. The smaller sheet wave is named Flow Rider. The pendulum ride and “Chaos” are new rides which the amusement park keeps developing in order to ensure anticipation and variety in the line-up of this long-running family entertainment venue.
