The six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park features a 925-foot lazy river, a 35-foot waterslide tower with four waterslides and splashdown pool, a 6,000 square foot children’s water playground, including a 50-gallon vortex splash bucket, three water rings and two water cannons, and the new Dusty’s Mineshaft Racer, a 4-lane racer that launches riders headfirst into a thrilling 360 degree turn in an enclosed tube, before plunging 40 feet down open-air lanes for a downhill dash to the finish line and a serious drenching.
