Looking for great beaches AND amusement/water slide park

Is there such a town in or close to the Cape that offers great beaches with big waves but also great amusement parks/things to do for teen age boys? Like a water slide park, or an amusement ride type park? Go cart race cars? We love the beach, but also don't go every day. Doesn't have to be the Cape if someone knows of an area like that (we just love the Cape so much from previous vacations).Thanks!!

Here's half of what you want, Water Wiz in Wareham. : tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g41552-d57…

And the natural 'water wiz' is along the Atlantic coast beaches of the Outer Cape. Just bring the boogie boards. Other days tour around the area and enjoy all there is to do especially with kids. www.kidsonthecape.com

Cape Cod really does not have the type of amusement parks that is normally associated with the Jersey shore. Also the waves, even on the ocean beaches, are not the type that you would ride a surf board. Not like California or Hawaii.

Water Wizz as CCC pointed out is in Wareham so you could look for a place to stay in Falmouth which has go carts, mini-golf etc. The beaches are very good, too.

Take a look at Red Jacket resorts, they have some kid friendly activities in their resorts. They have a indoor water park in White Mountains, I don't think they have one in Cape Cod.

No, I meant the Cape could use a Big, Loud, Tacky water park! It would be so much fun and no sharks!
