The waterpark will span more than eight acres, making it the largest indoor waterpark in the country.

It will offer a lazy river, the world's tallest indoor body slide with a 142-foot drop, and 31 luxury cabanas designed by New Jersey-native Jonathan Adler.

Surfers can take lessons at the wave pool, which is the park's centerpiece.

The waterpark will also offer more than 40 water slides and 15 attractions themed after DreamWorks characters, such as Shrek, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda.
