Looks like the town of Kennewick, Washington just got itself a brand new water attraction in Shark Reef Water Park! The water park will be a seasonal destination accompanied by year-round indoor facilities, with phase 1 slated to open on a ten-acre site on Memorial Day of 2012.
While the initial the design consisted strictly of a seasonal water park, numerous requests for additional entertainment resulted in a redesign that will include indoor features. The revised park design includes a bundle of attractions by waterslide and waterpark attractions design firm SpashTacular, along with a car parking lot that will be capable of converting into a drive-in movie theater. It will complement the other year-round activities and is expected to increase the amount of visitor draw to the park’s other attractions, including indoor batting cages, blacklight miniature golf, and a high-end arcade.
The park’s masterminds don’t foresee weather being much of a problem: “Many people in other areas of the country have questioned us regarding an outdoor waterpark in Washington State,” says Shark Reef co-founder Mike Hillman. “What they often don’t realize is that we are perfectly located on the desert side of the state with an ideal dry climate that typically enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year.”
With groundbreaking set for this July, who’s in for some indoor goodness come 2012?
