New Waterpark for SoCal in 2007

Wednesday, July 5, 2006 11:13 AM
The same people who developed Wild Rivers are opening a new waterpark in Temecula. They are currently looking for naming suggestions as the park is currently unnamed. Anyone else find it odd that a park that opens in less than a year is still without a name? And breaking ground in August? It almost seems like a hoax! Should be interesting to see how this develops.

Where is Temecula? I've never heard of it. Hopefully this project gets off the ground!

Yeah kinda. I entered it. I said it should be named waterworld. So simple and not original.
By the way... IT HAS A BOOMERANGO!

How about giving it a "haunted" theme and calling it Haunted Lagoon? I always thought that would make a good theme for a waterpark.

janfrederick's avatar Temecula is 45 minutes North of San Diego and 45 minutes East of Orange County. I think it would be a great place to build a water park. It is a growing bedroom community that is home to many folks who work in San Diego and Orange county. It gets pretty darn hot too.

They are also a bit of a local tourist destination with an annual baloon festival, a large wine region, and hot rod festival.

I think it would be a great place for a new Castle Park too. ;)

That would be pretty cool, maybe the water could be dyed red or something lol, but that is a cool idea for a themed waterpark. They could have those large inclosed waterslides with the effects and all (I forget where that is with the dark ride/waterslide "hybrid" rides? theres a storm themed one and the other is Journey to the Center of the Earth or something like that ) *** Edited 7/5/2006 3:36:07 PM UTC by P18***

"Yah, this is the weirdest sunburn I've ever had. Took the kids to Hades Waterpark this weekend. I look like a tomato, but it doesn't burn a bit. And as you can see, my fingernails and eyeballs got burned too. Must be sunspots or something."

Oh, and there's also a large casino there too: http://www.pechanga.com/home.asp *** Edited 7/5/2006 6:05:38 PM UTC by janfrederick***

Well, I went on and suggested "Riverslide Park" since Temecula is in Riverside County.

Hey, it isn't that bad...is it?

They are all really enjoyable slides at Water World in Colorado. Here's some videos-they don't show much, but it's better than giving away the surprises!

Voyage to the Center of the Earth and Storm are at (Hyland Hills) Water World in Denver. They have another themed ride called Lost River of the Pharaohs. The place is huge with some very unique attractions. It is my second favorite waterpark behind Schlitterbahn.

I believe Lost River and Voyage were both done in house with some animatronics from Sally Corp. Storm is pretty much a standard ProSlide Dark Mammoth with strobe lights and sound effects.

You can get more information on the park here:
