3 Things You Must Do At Owa
Owa is The Alabama Gulf Coast’s newest entertainment, dining and shopping venue. OWA, which is a Muscogee Creek term for “water”, offers something for the whole family. Located between AL Hwy 59 and The Foley Beach Express at 1501 South OWA Boulevard in Foley, Alabama, Owa should definitely be part of your next beach adventure! While there is way more stuff than you can do in one day, here are 3 things we recommend you not miss while in our area:
1. Ride a coaster or a frog
Owa is proud to offer 21 amusement park rides. For the thrill seekers among us, Owa is sure to please! Whether you prefer rides that spin like the Wave Runner or have G-force thrusts like the Air Racer or swing high over the park like the Freedom Flyer, you’re sure to have a blast experiencing them all. Oh, and don’t miss the roller coaster. Rollin’ Thunder, a super fast thrill coaster, has drops, loops, hairpin turns and speed sure to get your adrenaline going! You’ll be telling your friends about that ride for years to come!
Owa also has several family friendly amusement park rides. The Flying Carousel, Sky Balloons and Tea Time spinning teacup rides are just a few.
And what would an amusement park be without kid specific rides? Don’t let the kiddos miss the Zip Zap Race, the Gully Washer or the Leap Frog ride. After all, who wouldn’t want to ride an actual leaping frog?

2. Eat something good
If you’re looking for a quick snack between rides, check out one of Owa’s many food carts. Yummy hot dogs, tacos, shaved ice and ice cream are just some of the choices available at the food carts.
Not quite what you were craving? Then check out Shady Arbor or the Veranda. For mouth-watering pulled pork, fresh delicious salads and perfectly prepared beef brisket, visit the Veranda. Nachos, popcorn shrimp and gator bites are also available. Shady Arbor’s menu includes hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza and chicken. And, of course, there is ice cream!
For a whole different dining experience, visit the Groovy Goat or Wahlburgers located right outside the park. The Groovy Goat offers a vast menu including breakfast all day, specialty burgers, steaks and salads. They offer a wide variety of beers, cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. And TVs. There are TVs all around so you can watch your favorite sporting event while you dine!
And Wahlburgers is at Owa, too. We all love Wahlburgers! Known for hamburgers as famous as the Wahlberg Family, Wahlburgers is sure to be a hit with your whole family! From mac and cheese, to specialty burgers to chili, there is something on the menu for everyone. Wahlburgers also has drink menu that is unmatched! Featuring Coke products, coffee and tea, locally brewed beers, and adult frappes, the drink menu has something for everyone. Wahlburgers also has a tee-shirt shop right on site, so don’t forget to grab yourself a cool tee before heading out.
3. Visit the arcade
If your idea of a great day is not riding thrill rides, but playing arcade versions instead, you’re in luck! One of the newest additions to the Owa property is an amazing arcade located right outside the park gate. Showcasing 50 different arcade games, a variety of interactive video games and a redemption center, the arcade at Owa just opened in December 2017.
Owa is still growing. This is just a short list of things we love and believe you will, too. As more restaurants and attractions are added, we will be sure to highlight them in our blogs.
