Enchanted Forest Water Safari to open Wednesday

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Summer weather is here, and for those looking to cool off, Enchanted Forest Water Safari in Old Forge opens for the season Wednesday.

Many schools have field trips planned for opening day, so workers are hustling to get the park ready. Last-minute preps include painting and organizing the lounge chairs. And while it's still under construction, Water Safari is getting a new attraction this year with Walter's Wild Slide, a 70-foot, four-lane racer for kids around 5, 6, and 7 years old.

Katie Wojdyla of Water Safari says it's about keeping the park fresh and making sure there is something for everyone in the family.

With 32 water rides, the park still holds the title as New York's largest water theme park. Walter's Wild Slide, named for the park's mascot, should be open sometime in July.
