Wake Nation is a new type of water park (one of only 8 in the entire U.S.) that lets you wakeboard, water ski, and kneeboard WITHOUT the use of a boat. The entire park is designed to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced riders. It’s great for anyone age 5 or older. Just bring your bathing suit as they’ve got everything else you need. The Wake Nation season runs from April through October.
