In 1998, Lake Compounce entered the world of aquatics with the addition of Splash Harbor, now known as Crocodile Cove Water Park. The water park debuted with one water slide, a wave pool, and a selection of kids’ slides. A hit among guests, WhiteWater added a custom-themed sailboat AquaPlay 1050 to expand the park’s offerings for visitors of all ages.

In 2012, Lake Compounce moved a nearby road to expand the water park. More water slides were added over the next few years, with WhiteWater partnering with the park again in 2021 to elevate its aquatic thrills. The resulting attraction was the Venus Vortex, a six-story Manta water slide. The new addition takes up to four adventurous riders together through twists and turns, soaring down an enclosed slide in a circular raft, before plummeting into a U-shaped half funnel in the form of a hungry Venus flytrap.
