Started May 28th, Water World is Back! With 2 More New Rides!

Water World officially re-opened for the 2022 season.

On May 28th, it was such a long-awaited moment for many Coloradans on Saturday morning, with a blaring summer playlist and crowds lining the sidewalk for as far as our eyes could see. One of America’s largest waterparks has finally opened for a summer of fun. Water World has more than 50 attractions for kids of all ages including more family tube rides than any other park in America. Plus, parking at the park is for free, and Water World allows food and drinks to be carried in, so why not grab a picnic basket and let the family fun begin?

Officially new in 2022 is the Colorado-themed area called “Alpine Springs” that features the park’s two newest attractions. They are called “Roaring Forks” which features a water coaster with two dueling paths allowing riders to see and taunt their competitors and take fast corners at the park’s first open-air saucer turns. Roaring Forks is the second water coaster to open at Water World, joining Mile High Flyer as the only water coasters in Colorado. The new coaster utilizes water nozzle propulsion for a “two-guest water coaster experience,” said Water World.

 Our next new ride is going to be “Centennial Basin,” a two-person raft experience that will fill your heart with Colorado pride as you whirl down an enclosed tube with visual effects that make you feel you are descending at a much quicker rate than you actually are. Riders splashdown into a Colorado-themed mega-bowl where rotations will eventually lead to the tube to the runout area.

Roaring Forks and Centennial Basin riders must be taller than 42 inches to ride. Water World said it now has 52 attractions including more family tube rides than any other park in America. Do not forget to keep in mind that Water World is open until late August. For pricing details, park rules, tickets, protocols and hours, visit https://www.waterworldcolorado.com.
