What Will You Do?
Don’t miss out on the season-opening weekend of Fresno waterpark. With over 20 million gallons of water and two gigantic slides, this park is perfect for a day of fun in the sun. If you don’t live nearby, then head out to Wild Water Adventures this weekend for some wet and wild adventure.
What To Wear?
Wearing sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses is a good start. But what should you wear? A swimsuit, of course. Don’t forget the snorkel, goggles, or water shoes if you need them. From there, it’s up to you. If you want to go all out with a wet suit for the more extreme rides like The Storm or Pipeline Plunge (a double-loop waterslide), feel free. Otherwise, stick with shorts and a t-shirt for something less intense like River Rapids.
The Fresno waterpark season opens this weekend so get ready to soak up the sun in style!
