Is it still open this weekend? I tried calling them and got no answer and I checked their website and it says open until the end of Aug. but then another place in the visitor's guide said it would be open until Labor Day? Does anyone in Lubbock know? Thanks, Pam

I'm pretty much the only active member from here, and I'm not really sure. Most of the pools here are open this weekend, so I would venture to say that it's open for the last time this season, but I wouldn't gamble a trip from Midland.

I bet you'll enjoy Lubbock. I haven't been there a lot since I left Tech, but I really loved the city!

Sounds like fun. I still enjoy the Science Spectrum even though I've been there tons of times. Water Rampage is small, but still fun. Are you coming up for the football game?
Edit: I just saw your post about the "staycation".
What all do you plan on doing here?

oh we didn't know there was a football game! I am surprised we got a motel room then! Not sure what else we will be doing--legacy play village, Market Street to eat and shop, Science Spectrum Museum, the water park if it's open--any other suggestions--are children are 3 yr old twins and a 9 yr old.

thanks, Pam

If you have time on your trip to Amarillo, make a little side trip to Candian, Tx. It's on the Canadian River, maybe an hour outside of Amarillo. A very neat little oasis town. They have a Fall Foliage Arts and Crafts festival every year. Blank One of the best things about Texas is all the little gems you find in between your destination.

If the water park doesn't work out, you could do Joyland. It's a small ammusement park in Mackenzie Park that has a couple of water rides. There is Ranching Heritage Center on the Tech campus, where you can learn about the history of the area, but it's a kid-friendly outdoor museum that follows through a series of authentic ranch houses. Just be sure to avoid the Tech area Saturday evening unless you want to share the same stretch of road with 50,000 other people. Enjoy your weekend!
