Seven Peaks Water Park will open for the season this weekend for the first time under new ownership and with a new theme.
Owners Max Rabner, Stan Ricks, Scott McQuarrie and Brent McQuarrie purchased the park from U.S. Bankruptcy Court last winter. The group has hired a theme park architect and a water attraction engineer to make improvements to the park.This year, the park's facilities are being remodeled to reflect an 1800s mining and mountain theme. Engineers have also added a couple of new attractions to the park. Jet sprays, fountains and white-water rapids have been added to the Lazy River ride. The less adventurous can still float down the dry lane.
The serpentine rides now feature the option of a flash flood effect. The speed and intensity of the flood can be set before each ride.
Park hours this year will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The park will be closed Sundays. A weekday season pass can be purchased for $49.95. Day passes are $13.50. A day pass for children between the ages of 4 and 11 is $10. Children under 4 and seniors over 59 get in free.
