Darien Lake Proposes $7 Million Water Park Expansion

Darien Lake recently proposed a new $7 million water park expansion to the Genesee County Planning Board, which recommended approval of the project.

The additions would consist of a new lazy river, a FlowRider surfing attraction, and a 50 ft. high "Mach 6" water slide. It's not clear from the article, but either the expansion would be called Pirates Cove or the entire water park would be renamed that.

If approved at the next round of local hearings, and if the park moves forward with it, the new area will take up a portion of the existing parking lot and be designed by Aquatic Development Group. No date was mentioned for the area to open, though a 2011 debut would make sense to me.

Flow rider sounds good to me as long as it's not a up-charge attraction
