We know that you probably came to the Alabama Coast with white sandy beaches in mind. But what if we told you there is plenty of fun to be had away from the beach?

OWA is an amusement park in Foley, Alabama with thrills and excitement at the top of the to-do list.

And we guess it wouldn’t be an amusement park in Alabama without a ride called the Alabama Wham’a. This giant ferris wheel style ride straps riders in and inverts them as they spin round and round — screaming is encouraged.

For a ride as smooth as the Gulf Coast, make sure to hop on Wave Rider. Wave Rider has a wavy track and a giant, spinning platform on top that spins in circles. You will feel like you’re riding the waves of the Gulf Coast. The surf is always up!

Alright, so you’ve had enough of the warm-up rides? Rollin’ Thunder stands ready to make your stomach drop. This big blue above-track coaster has huge drops, crazy loops and some turns that will leave you breathless — again, screaming is definitely encouraged!

Since OWA had family-friendly fun in mind when the park was first built, there are plenty of rides for all ages. If you would like to see a list of rides for the little ones in your group, visit the OWA website.

OWA is more than just an amusement park. It is also a great place to spend the day eating some great food. Hit up the Groovy Goat for tableside nachos and a full arcade or Wahlburgers for a modern take on the classic burgers and fries.

Looking for dinner and a show? OWA has you covered. Legends in Concert is live music venue dedicated to tribute performers, including the likes of Elvis, Barry White, Aretha Franklin and many more! What started in the 1980s among the bright lights of Las Vegas has come to OWA in Foley!

Spend the whole day grinning from ear to ear at OWA.

OWA is located at 1501 South OWA Blvd. Foley, AL. For more information, visit the OWA website or call (251) 923-2111.
