Final weekend at DryTown, free admission for teachers

Drytown Hometown heroesPALMDALE – With school back in session, the City of Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park is saying goodbye to its 2013 season by offering free admission to all teachers during its final weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21 and 22.

“We’ve had a great summer and we’re going to cap it off by saying ‘thank you’ to all teachers by giving them free admission,” said DryTown Manager Eric Dombrowski.

This offer is not available online.  Free admission will be issued at the entrance gate. A valid work ID will be required to obtain free admission.

DryTown will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.

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.

Food and beverage concessions are handled by Subway at Dusty’s Grill. Customers will also be able to enjoy their DryTown favorites, pizza, cold drinks, yogurt parfaits and more.
