The amusement park side of Wild Waves used to be known as Enchanted Village. Now the combined amusement park and water park is known as Wild Waves. Also, the property was owned by Six Flags. The park chain sold the park in 2007, and another company now runs it.
A good-sized water park, Wild Waves features the Zooma Falls family raft ride, the Konga River lazy river, and Hook's Lagoon, an interactive tree house with loads of water gizmos, slides geared to younger kids, and a tipping bucket. The park also offers a wave pool, an activity pool, and a slew of water slides, including speed slides, body slides, and tube slides. For folks who want to chill out, there are even some hot tubs.
Roller coasters include the 75-foot-tall Timberhawk woodie, the looping steel coaster Wild Thing, Klondike Gold Rusher, a Wild Mouse ride. Other thrill rides include the Timber Axe, which spins passengers upside down, and the Disko-Flashback, a spinning ride that travels back and forth on a half-pipe track.
Younger children will enjoy the kiddy rides in Kid's Kingdom, and the whole family will enjoy the splashdown ride, Lumberjack Falls, and the river raft ride, Raging River. The water park offers plenty of water slides and other activities for all ages. Parents can enjoy their time without the worry of children getting hurt as they ride the small rides and frequent the kiddy pools.
Dining is plentiful at the park. The Village Cafy serves all of your favorites including fresh baked pizza, chicken tenders, hot dogs, chili cheese fries, and ice cold soft drinks. The LumberJack Burgers is another dining option and offers a variety of choices including grilled 1/3 lb sirloin cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, grilled chicken sandwiches, kid meals and ice cold soft drinks.
