Oh hell yea it was epic. Most of the waterpark was formed directly onto the mountain side by pouring concrete onto the rocks. It was smooth concrete, but hard nonetheless. Nowadays we're used to smooth "soft" fiberglass shutes, but back then (and still partly today with it's current owners) the damn tube runs were concrete with rocks, down a mountain, with spring fed ice cold water. EPIC. Very pretty.

The tarzan swing is still there but I see they cleaned up the pool, that bitch used to have a BLACK bottom and the water was dark (spring fed too?) And of course:

In early years the area you jumped off from was not over the water
The grand prix cars were the same as Malibu Grand Prix carts but the course was made partly on a hill so there was elevation changes. I was too young to ride those but remember having to wait hours for my parents/older cousins to ride them. Lame.


The boats were like those you can do at Disney but actually got on plane.

Bumperboats were awesome. Gas powered weedwacker engines inbetween your legs and in your face, and actually went pretty quick. You can get a wicked spin going at WOT. I have to assume there were guards on the props.

The Kayak Experience: After the second visitor death in the park's history in 1982 occurred at this ride, it was closed permanently. It was an imitation whitewater course that used submerged electric fans to agitate the water above. Frequently the kayaks got stuck or tipped over, and people had to get out of them to remedy the situation.
yeah baby, lets put electric fans under the water so people can fall out of their boats into the same water, hell yeah.

And holy **** that wave pool was silly. Imagine half of Queens learning to swim in waves larger than the jersey shore. That was one 'ride' I didn't like too much. A 10' deep crowded wave pool...you don't flow too well in fresh water either.

I don't know where there's an alpine slide still around these parts, I'd love to do it again. Perhaps pay extra so there's on one in front, that was the shitty part. There'd be traffic jams on the damn shute.

I remember going down an Apline slide as a kid, I think it was at Camelback in the Poconos, Pennsylvania of course. All I remember is it was fast and wicked. I remember watching some kid flip over and it was road rash city for him.

I've never been a Heat fan and I hate living in this town because of the team. It's just an objective observation.
