Festivities Saturday hailed the ribbon-cutting at Seven Peaks Water Park, with sky divers, a brunch for dignitaries and speeches - but those searching for a water slide to help them keep cool Memorial Day had to look elsewhere. The $4.5 million Provo facility didn't exactly make a big splash when it opened to the public. The park is still a couple of days away from completion, and the only attractions greeting patrons on Memorial Day were a wave pool and an adult activity pool. Aquaphiles needn't worry, said water park secretary Lisa Brown - the park's other attractions will be open by next weekend. Those attractions include slides, Lazy River, water flumes and Children's Paradise with waterfalls, fountains, slides and water guns.
