Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park Open For Labor Day Weekend

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Lake  Winnepesaukah will be open Saturday through Monday for the holiday weekend, inviting guests to take full advantage of the last days of summer.

Don't forget bathing suits so the entire family can get soaked during the final summer weekend at the spectacular Soak Ya Water Park.

"There's still time to splash with down the Zoom Flume or race the Winnie 500," said Talley Green of Lake Winnepesaukah. Amusement park guests can take the train to "Soak Ya! Station" on the west side of the lake, which serves as the entrance to the water park. There they can float along the Crazy River, with surprising delights of tiered waterfalls, spray-action features, and rolling rapids. Rushing water will send adventurers careening down numerous slides, including spiraling enclosed tube slides for multiple riders and both open and closed flume body slides for individual riders. There's even more splashtacular fun for the whole family in the Water Works interactive water play area, where over 160 gallons of water pour out onto the guests every couple of minutes!

Labor Day weekend, treat the whole family to one more unforgettable holiday of summertime fun at Lake Winnepesaukah, the South's favorite family amusement park. Soak Ya Water Park's final day of 2018 operation will be Monday, Sept. 3. Lake Winnie Amusement Park will remain open on weekends throughout September. Parking is always free. Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park has been recognized as one of "America's Top Ten Family Amusement Parks" by Travel & Leisure Magazine.
