Choosing to vacation in California almost requires a love of the water, but when a typical day at the beach begins to get routine, amp up the power of your H2O with a trip to Raging Waters in San Dimas, a suburb of Los Angeles. Ranked number three in the Travel Channel’s top 10 list of water parks in the U.S., Raging Waters offers ample opportunity for water-based fun for children and adults of all ages, no matter their swim skills. With everyone’s safety in mind, the park recommends the use of a life jacket, provided free of charge, for all guests under 48" who are novice swimmers. So get your family geared up and ready to go for a day of slipping, splashing, swimming, and sunning on the park’s 36 rides and attractions, all designed to cool you down while cranking up the level of excitement to a sizzling degree.
Your little tykes are going to develop fins by the time they’ve had enough of the slides, tunnels, bridges, waterfalls and fountains that are found in the children’s attractions, such as Kid’s Kingdom, Splash Island and Volcano Fantasea. Delight the entire family with a ride down the Thunder Rapids flume in a five-person circular raft. New rides such as the Tunnel of Terror, with its 40 foot drop and 360 degree spins, all experienced in total darkness, provide the ultimate thrill for the adventure seekers in your group while tried and true favorites such as the Amazon Adventure provide some low-key, relaxing amusement for those who prefer a more subdued experience, soaking up the sun while circling lazily around a waterway in a one-person raft.
If you plan to spend the entire day at the park, you’re certain to work up an appetite. While outside food and beverages are not allowed in the park, you can find all of your summertime favorites at stands located throughout the park, including hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream. Raging Waters is happy to host your group and corporate events, as well as birthday parties, so round up your friends, your family and your co-workers for a wet and wild time at one of the nation’s most exhilarating water parks!
