Everyone’s an Athlete
OWA’s Aqua Play and Wake Park at Gravity Island are the first of their kind in Coastal Alabama and promise both thrills and the occasional humble laugh. Operated by wakeboarding professionals, a 2-tower cable system allows guests to take part in a number of activities on the water from wakeboarding to tubing and other thrills in between. Not sure you can do it? OWA has a “Get Up Guarantee” so everyone is an athlete at OWA. A floating inflatable obstacle course awaits those ready to be untethered so they can run wild, slipping and sliding their way to victory.
You don’t have to be a kid to have fun like one
Adulting is tough. Thankfully, at OWA, grown ups tapping into their inner kid, hyped up on sugar from Sweet Tooth is totally allowed. Get ready to soar up, down, twist, turn and speed through the air on thrill-inducing rides you’ll want to ride over and over again. After you’re rockin’ the wind-blown hair look or just ready to be on solid, still ground, head on over to Downtown OWA for drinks and delicious eats!
Legends are real at OWA
From Elvis to Whitney Houston, catch the #1 Las Vegas tribute artist show, Legends in Concert at OWA. While artists may change seasonally, the level of entertainment remains constant. The most recent tribute artists at the OWA Theatre were a few ladies you may have heard of, Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. You’ll love the glitz, the glam and singing at the top of your lungs to the songs we all know and love.
Delight in Downtown OWA
It’s always fun to head downtown—especially when it’s Downtown OWA. Inspired by some of the South’s most beloved small towns, this is the gathering place for a morning stroll or a night out on the town. It’s all familiar yet pristine, from the sidewalk-side dining to shopkeeper’s awnings, from the streetlights and fountains to the marquee on the theater. But there’s one big difference—no cars. Downtown OWA is pedestrian-only, so there’s plenty of room to walk in the sunshine or browse in the shade. Whether it’s date night or a night out with friends, lively scenery pairs well with the variety of alluring cocktails and tasty cuisine throughout Downtown OWA.
