Water Slide in Nags Head or KDH




Does anyone know where the water slide was located in either NH or KDH. I know it was on the west side. We used to go there all the time when we visited in the late 80's early 90's.

That water slide was the best, too bad it's gone.


RE: Water Slide in Nags Head or KDH




I never got to go on it but I seem to recall it being around where the KDH Harris Teeter is now.


RE: Water Slide in Nags Head or KDH




That place was sketchy when we went there, around 2003 or so. There was an employee there that was a registered sex offender.

The Surf Slide was just past Kelly's, where Dunkin Donuts is now. I loved this place when I was a kid.

Thanks. As a kid we would go there when the jellyfish would show up.

Found this site with pics of both slides - the Surf Slide and Diamond Shoals.

I cut my foot so badly at the Surf Slide when it was newly opened. my brother in law had to carry me into the ocean the rest of the vacation so the sand wouldn't irritate my foot. I never went on another slide after that one. I sliced my foot on a sharp edge at the bottom of the slide.

It was next to the Laser Tag place in Nags Head. You went down on mats.. it had 3 or 4 shutes.

There were a couple of turns where I always seemed to hit my head if I wasn’t paying attention. But man, we loved this place when I was little!
In the 80s growing up at the obx if we couldn’t go to the beach or needed an alternate activity, the Surf Slide was great-
Or Dowdys. Or roller skating at the Ark.

I recall my aunt taking my cousin and I there once. We had a pretty good time.

Actually I think some of you are confusing the Surfslide with Diamond Shoals on Hatteras Island. The Nags Head Surfslide was 3 or 4 shoots straight down riding on foam mats. Absolutely no curves. The Surfslude closed way before the 2000"s
