When did it close (recently?) and what kind of attractions did it have? I've only heard very little about it...

It closed in 2003 I believe. How long have you been in Augusta?

What is on that property now? It could always make a comeback.

I think its just gated and sitting there. It definitely will make a comeback. Im not sure if the property will be another water park though. It's not that big of a site. Only about 7 to 8 acres. I think when a water park comes to Augusta. It may located on another property in the metro. Metro Augusta needs a 25 acre plus water park.

20-ish years my friend, and the only thing i've ever heard about the place was that was closed...was it like a real water park (like the Wet-n-Wild parks) or something along the lines of Richardson's Lake in Aiken (a pond with some water slides) If we were to get a real water park, then it probably would do well here and bring in a good bit of visitors, but if its just some pond with a few little water slides and a volley ball area, then it's really not worth the trouble.

It was a pretty good size water park. The only reason it closed was because of the insurance rates. The owners premium jumped from $8,000 to $58,500 a month. .
