Schlitterbahn Water Park, in Kansas City, Kansas, has announced a large expansion for the park's 2011 operating season. The expansion will cost several million dollars and will greatly expand the number of slides and amenities the water park offers.
The park will also beef up its amenities for guests, creating an even better experience for them. 2010 was the first full season for the new park, and attendance exceeded management's expectations. The water park is the beginning of a much larger Vacation Village development, which will include more water park operations, resorts, and a shopping and dining district.
