In 2016, guests will enjoy new upgrades to the turnstiles and retreats and canopies. Those with families now have more family locker space.


Another newbie in 2016, The park has greatly enhanced its food and beverage options.  A delicious fried dough pastry originating from Canada called BeaverTails swim in to the park. These whole wheat and hand-stretched pieces of dough are cooked fresh and served with your choice of topping. They are amazing, btw!
