Slide into summer fun
By Alyson Whitaker
Summer is just around the corner, bringing warmer weather and longer days. What better way to beat the heat, than by floating along a lazy river or zooming down a 400-foot twisty-turny waterslide?
Aqua Adventure Waterpark in Fremont will be opening its doors for a second season on May 22. Hours of operation will be limited to weekends through June 13, when the park's summer schedule will begin.
Thrill seekers will delight as they blast through the multiple 40-foot waterslides. For those who prefer to stay closer to the ground but want to see all the action, the Roundabout River is the perfect solution. Guests can float on an inner tube (available for rental) or simply let the current carry their body along the river path. Two water playgrounds are on site as well, with the 'Lil Squirts area specifically designed for toddlers and preschoolers. Lifeguards are stationed throughout the park, closely watching guests in every area. Food is available for purchase at the Grill.
Swimming lessons for all skill levels are offered in the lap pool at the park, during off-hours. Each 2-week session runs Monday through Thursday and times are available in the morning and early evening. To register, visit www.regerec.com. Daily lap swimming is also offered in the early morning, from June 19 through August 28.
In addition to general admission, the park also has a variety of packages available for group events. Details, pricing, and reservations are available online at www.goaquaadventure.com.
The Park's first season was a raging success and season passes sold out early. 2010 Season passes are available for purchase at the park during regular operating hours.
Whether you're looking for a great way to spend a single afternoon or relax all summer long, Aqua Adventure Waterpark has just the ticket!
