The countdown is on now!

People are so excited to finally get to see all the hard work the folks at Showboat put into the brand new waterpark going in right off of their stretch of the boardwalk in Atlantic City.

Showboat's Island Waterpark has been in the works for quite a while now. It has certainly come a long way from the swirling rumors about plans for the place to it actually taking shape. It's almost complete. As a matter of fact, Showboat even released a video for people to check out the waterpark's progress, too.
