Big Surf Wave Pool
Big Surf is closed for the season. See you next summer!
Picture yourself ocean side complete with breaking surf and rolling waves. Now picture yourself right here in Mount Prospect at Big Surf Wave Pool offering all the ambiance of the beach – without the sand.
Big Surf with its gleaming deck chairs and bright blue umbrellas is a perfect destination for a summer outing. Swimmers can ride the 3-foot cresting waves, or if calm waters are more your style wait just ten minutes when the huge turbine blowers take a break and the zero-depth pool settles into a relaxing cool, blue harbor.
Hungry swimmers can grab some grub at our Snack Shack serving hot dogs, pizza by-the-slice, ice cream and other confections.
Come be our guest, ride the waves and bask in the sun.
Big Surf Wave Pool, Where the Waves Await!

MRMA conducts an intensive program at our sites with follow-up surprise audits to check on staff performances throughout the season. And they've given our staff a thumbs-up all the way!
