OWA's Award-Winning Destinations

Venue Description: OWA (oh-wah) has become known as a world-class, award-winning entertainment destination owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. Its authentic design celebrates the destinations rural roots and the area’s natural beauty. The name OWA, which translates to “big water” in the Muscogee Creek language, was inspired by the 14-acre lake at the center of this unique development. OWA has the feel of a small Southern town that evolved through time with distinct districts, such as Downtown OWA and The Park at OWA, its amusement park.

The Park at OWA features more than 20 rides, with favorites like Mystic Mansion and Rollin’ Thunder. It also features in-park dining, a brand-new splash pad, and a variety of midway games.
