Paramount's Kings Island announces Boomerang Bay

Posted Monday, September 22, 2003 8:01 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Paramount's Kings Island today announced Boomerang Bay, the waterpark replacement for Water Works, which is being removed. The new park will include Jackaroo Landing, a water play area, a 54-foot high four-way racing slide, Tasmanian Typhoon, a dark tube ride ending in a giant funnel and Kookaburra Bay, a giant pool with waterfalls.

The new facility will also include lounge chair-side waiter service, cabanas, a full bar, family changing rooms and shade-covered areas. The 50 water activities include 30 slides and will be included with admission to the park.

Yay. Two Boomerang Bays for the 2004 season. Honestly, did anybody think it was going to be something other than that? ;)

Cool. I wonder if PGA's Boomerang Bay is getting similar new attractions.

Make sure to turn off your personal firewall.

One day, I see all Paramount Park's being identical to each other... What one park gets, another is bound to recieve one or two years down the road.

What? I'm sorry, can you point me to the Six Flags park that has cabanas and people who will bring me a beer pool-side?

I'm not too much of a "water park" kind of person, but after seeing the images above, the details of what is to come, I will say that I will have to go and check it out.

Does that one looks like a rebuild of Bonzai Pipeline, or is it just me?

Man, that loopty-loop thingy looks like a lot of painful fun. ;)

Anyway, I think that it's really cool that it's included with admission. Six Flags take notice!

I rave about Holiday World's waterpark and Dorney's is extremely noteworthy, but if PKI pulls this off, I think we'll see PKI's Boomerang Bay make the Golden Ticket list for sure next season. I'm extremely impressed and didn't even expect this much. Look to Silverwood's attendance this year compared to last on why a waterpark addition or expansion could mean *huge* things for them.

I said LOOKS like every Six Flags waterpark. I didn't say "Gee it'll have cabanas and people who will give Jeff a beer pool-side just like every other Six Flags water park."

Water Works was crap from the beginning and it was time for an overhaul. I'm happy to see it come. The pics still scream "Hurricane Harbor", that's all.

Brightly-colored waterslides is probably sticking out at you to scream "Hurricane Harbor"... Luckily, there's more to it than eye candy, although when is that ever a bad thing anyways? It certainly helped The Cell be a halfway decent movie.

I kept telling myself that I wanted to visit PKI's waterpark every year since I enjoyed it in 1998. Truth is though, I never went back since then, EVER. You can bet your bottom that *my* bottom will be racing down that sweet lookin slide in '04!

Great job PKI!

Yeah, clearly, there is much more going on than just what a few pictures can show.

I'm amazed that they are completely revamping the whole thing. Most parks would just add some more attractions and some new paint jobs.

This expansion will be very good for their waterpark but I have a few questions. Does anyone think that the amount of rides and attractions was toned down due to the water problem they were having earlier? I mean for a while it was going to be all or mostly new and the old slides sent to PGA. Now it seems like the majority of the slides are staying. Another thing that makes me think they arent adding as much is that before they needed a lot more water a day. Now that they have announced the new plans where is all the water they needed going to? None of these slides or pools seemed like they would need that much water compared to everything else. I am still happy with the expansion but just wonder if there was supposed to be more

Nothing was changed, they'll get the water they need. It's less of an issue than what the media made it out to be.

I'm sure Paramount didn't mind all the media attention.
