2012 Season Kicks off with 2 NEW RIDES, Double Dare & the Mile High Flyer
WHAT: Community-owned Hyland Hills Water World opens for a new season of summer fun in the sun. Named as one of the Top Ten Best Water Parks in America by the Travel Channel, Water World offers 48 attractions in a beautiful 67-acre site. Soak up some rays, be lazy on the river or speed down one of the many world-class water slide attractions, including the new Double Dare and Hydro-Magnetic Water Coaster, the Mile High Flyer. Water World is a great value – for the price of admission families can spend all day at the park, bring in their own coolers with food and sealed, non-alcoholic drinks. Parking is also free!
WHEN: Memorial Day Weekend: May 26-28, 2012
Get into summer! Gates open at 10 a.m. The park remains open until 6 p.m., weather permitting. Parking is free.
WHERE: Hyland Hills Water World. West of I-25 at 88th and Pecos in Federal Heights, just ten minutes from downtown Denver.
NEW: The Mile High Flyer is a Hydro-Magnetic Water Coaster/Proslide Rocket that was one of the most complicated attractions ever attempted at Water World. There are over 20,000 miles of electrical conduit used and 3,000 feet of copper grounding wire! The ride took over 11 months to build and includes five different electrical stations built in. The 15MPH ride is sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
The Double Dare Proslide slide stands at 41 feet tall and is a two-person tube ride that is gravity propelled. Guests will make it down the three-bump slide going approximately 15-20 MPH. Double Dare is located adjacent to ever-popular Turbo Racer. The park wanted to take advantage of the racing options as well as the hillside the ride was built on.
This summer Water World will partner with other water parks across the nation to participate in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson in an attempt to break a Guinness Book World Record. Also, Water World will host the annual CPRA Lifeguard Games, Belly Flop Contest and host thousands of visitors this summer!
