Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides – Have Your Next Company Retreat at Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides!
Last month, our team had a BLAST at Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides (fun-plex.com)! As a company, we love hosting events for our clients and friends, but we also think it’s important to spend quality time together as a team, outside of the office. For us, this bonding excursion could not have come at a better time. We have recently added a few new people to our team, so this outing allowed us to get to know each other a little better. As a destination for company retreats, Fun-Plex has it all—food, drinks, activities, entertainment, private cabanas—we could not have been more pleased!
Upon arrival, we were given our reserved sign and led to our private cabana. These cabanas are complete with premium patio furniture under a shaded tiki hut. Along with lawn chairs for laying out and a table and chairs for sitting around and eating, there was a nice lockable storage box that we had the option to keep some valuable items while we were away from the cabana. Our group got one of the Makana Cabana’s, which can hold parties of up to 12 people, but there are also Riverside Cabanas for smaller groups of up to six people. Reserving a cabana was the smartest thing we could have done because then we didn’t have to worry about all getting spots next to each other. It truly felt like our “own little private oasis.”
We decided that the best thing about choosing to plan a group getaway at Fun-Plex was that it caters to adults with children. There are so many activities to keep kids occupied while parents can relax with a drink in hand. From kiddie rides to family rides, one group can have a totally different experience at Fun-Plex than another group. Some adults will enjoy the bumper boats and go karts just as much as the kids do! There is even an 18-hole mini golf course within the waterpark, which is included with the entrance fee.
One really cool aspect about Fun-Plex that not everyone may realize is that there is a 21+ only section, which has Nebraska’s only swim-up bar, known as Breakers Bay! With plenty of seating in and around the pool at Breakers Bay, adults can be in the water and taking in the sun while enjoying a cold beer, frozen drink, or a bucket of margarita (which is what we went for—YUM!). Plus, Fun-Plex features their SunSets Summer Concert Series, presented by Corona. This live music series starts at 7 p.m. every Saturday in July and includes tunes from a variety of genres, all set in an soothing summer scene.
Throughout the day, our group loved going from our cabana to Breakers Bay, and mixing in fun activities like the lazy river, wave pool, and slides. We had a lot of laughs in the Motion Ocean Wave Pool as we held on tight to our tubes while some wicked waves rocked us back and forth. Near the end of the day, the Lazzzy River was calling our name. It felt good to lay back in our tubes as the river carried us along under a beautiful summer sky. However, we did jump out for a quick, thrilling ride down Typhoon Falls, a truly one-of-a-kind water slide. After some heart racing turns and drops, we retired back to the lazy river for a little more R&R time.
We want to say thank you to the entire Fun-Plex staff for showing our team such a good time! Even though we definitely got our summer fun fix, we are excited to go back and invite some friends with us next time.
