What’s New for 2017 on the OBX

What’s New on the Outer Banks?

Summer is almost here and visitors will begin to make their way back to the OBX for a little Fun in the Sun.  On your next visit, be sure to check out these new attractions and restaurants that are opening soon! 

H2OBX Water Park

The Outer Banks is about to get a bit splashier.  Opening in June 2017, the H2OBX Waterpark will be a thoroughly modern waterpark with its roots firmly established the rich history and culture of the Outer Banks.   Located just over the bridge in Currituck, H2OBX will have everything from enclosed and open waterslides, to tidal and surf pools, to a lazy river all with an Outer Banks theme.   Ticket sales will be limited each day to ensure that guests have a great experience with short lines and low crowds which will really make this new park enjoyable for the whole family.  Book your vacation with Atlantic Realty and you will not only get your water park tickets at a discount, but you can buy them in advance.  Call us today to find out how!

Grandstaff and Stein

The Grandstaff and Stein will soon be moving into the former location of the Flying Fish Restaurant in Kill Devil Hills. This unique restaurant and bar has the feel of a speakeasy, complete with bookstore façade in the front to keep up with the prohibition theme.    The hidden passage behind the bookshelf is where things really happen. You can gain access with a password (revealed weekly on their Facebook page) and the décor will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to the 1920’s.

The OBX Escape Room  

This new concept in family entertainment opened just over the bridge last year, but with its newly themed rooms and recent addition to our Fun N Sun Pass Program, we thought this activity was worth mentioning.   The concept is simple; you and your group are locked in a themed room with a set time to figure out clues and escape. There’s a murder mystery room, a diamond heist, a witch’s lair, Blackbeard’s treasure and even a haunted room.  A gingerbread room was recently added for the youngest clue solvers.  Reservations are required and Atlantic Realty guests get a free admission each and every day of their stay with the Fun N Sun Pass Program.  

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga

If you have a great sense of balance, the spirit of adventure, or just like getting wet, then stand up paddleboard yoga might be for you. It’s everything you love about traditional yoga, only on a paddleboard.   It makes poses like downward dog and crane a bit more interesting as the gentle sound waves add to your experience and help you relax and commune with nature. 

Corolla Light Town Center Mini Golf

The name is not official yet, but there will be a new mini golf course in the location of the old Corolla Skate Park was in Corolla Light Town Center.  The course will be open to the public and will include several unique water features such as ponds and waterfalls.   There will also be sloping inclines, rock features and beach themed ‘ruins’ which should enhance the experience increase the challenge for all skill levels.   We canâ??t wait! 

The Outer Banks has something for everyone and these new activities and restaurants are just a fraction of the exciting sites to see on your next OBX visit.  Call today to make your vacation plans and let Atlantic Realty help you have the best Outer Banks vacation experience ever!
