Lake Winnepesaukah Building Water Park for 2013

Tennessee's Lake Winnepesaukah shared some exciting news today when they revealed plans to add an all new water park section for the Summer 2013 season.  Located on the west side of the park near the Cannon Ball wooden roller coaster, the five acre water park will open with a large selection of rides and attractions and represent a multi-million dollar investment in the property.

“We have looked for the right opportunity to expand Lake Winnie and give our guests even more reasons to come back and more ways to have fun,” said Talley Green, Lake Winnepesauhak's Public Relations Director. “Within a 250 mile radius our customer base continues to increase, enhancing tourism in the Chattanooga area. After researching various water parks for a number of years, we are thrilled by the plans that have been developed by our award-winning team of designers.”

The new water park will be a part of the park's general admission fee, and will be accessible via the amusement park's main gates.   Next Summer guests will find a lazy river, wave lagoon, flume body slides, enclosed tube slides, a children's splash park, and even side-by-side racing slides waiting for them when they visit.

The overall park will contain retail shops, concessions, and a full changing facility along with both covered and uncovered lounging spaces.  The water park is being designed by architect Christopher M. Jones of Florida, and Aquatic Development Group out of New York.

Congratulations to the park for such an impressive expansion!  I would bet the water park will be a smash success during the hot Tennessee summers.
