At the old boarded up dock in the heart of Nantucket, you’ll find a treacherous cove where a brave sailing ship has crashed upon the rocks! Do you think your crew can survive the waters of Shipwreck Falls?

Pile into the big boat and try to catch your breath while you crank you up five stories, high into the trees over this windswept cove. Brace yourself for what’s coming next — an impossibly steep 50 foot drop, straight into the lagoon below you.

Unfortunately your dry time is about to come to a close, because any second now you’ll plunge headfirst down a startlingly steep drop straight into the drink! Hold your breath because down you go!

When you careen into the bottom of the hill, the massive splash is as tall as the harbor. It roars over the boat in a tower of spray, and you better believe the water’s so high it will drench you and everything in sight, including the innocent bystanders on the pedestrian bridge. This twenty foot tall wave of water is 50,000 cubic feet strong! On Shipwreck Falls, you’re in for a real soaking.
