Canada’s newest and largest Waterpark is set to open on June 7, 2010
Sitting on 100 acres, Calypso Waterpark – Canada’s largest theme waterpark – is set to open on June 7, 2010. Offering something for everyone, the park is located twenty minutes from Ottawa, Ontario and is jam packed with signature attractions from WhiteWater West, some of which are the first of their kind to be installed in Canada!
Canada’s first Family Boomerango and winner of the 2008 IAAPA award for Best New Product will wow guests, taking them vertical as they shoot up a wall, then pause before falling back for a sense of weightlessness as they pass over a transition hump and into a splashdown pool below. This raft ride is ideal for groups and families to share the excitement similarly to the traditional Family Raft Ride, another feature ride in the park.
Those who want to increase the adrenaline rush will experience high thrills sliding down the free fall speed slides, or trying out the eight-lane mat racer for a head-to-head battle of through a series of thrilling bumps, accelerating towards the finish line. Forces will keep riders heart rates up as they swirl around the walls of the SpaceBowl and SuperBowl, other exciting firsts for Canada.
There’s lots of fun for the tots as well. They will be delighted with a group of slides all their own that includes two mini slides, an enclosed body slide and a ramp slide.
All of these attractions surround WhiteWater’s RainFortress – a fully themed, multi-level and interactive play structure and the largest of its kind in Canada. It will delight park goers with its swashbuckling pirate theme and its giant tipping bucket that intermittently fills and spills on those adventurous enough to stand below. The structure boasts almost 200 features including numerous slides, bridges, climb nets, arch jets, water guns and pull ropes will provide hours of entertainment for hundreds of guests of all ages.
