Great way to spend some time on the weekends. You will get wet. Wear the right shoes and everything else is provided for a $5 per person ticket. Lots of fun!!

Fun place to take a summer 'white water' trip down the raceway. Kids or adults would have equal fun on this short run.

A great fun way to spend the day. Just what is needed on a hot day...cool wet water. Just watching can be relaxing.
