PA's largest waterpark

Saturday, December 21, 2002 3:52 PM

Does anybody know what PA's largest waterpark is? (in number of slides, that is) Will Wild Water Kingdom become the largest when the ten slides are built?

I am almost positive that WWK at Dorney is the largest in the state and one of the largest in the world.

I doubt this is the biggest but Camel Beach is a nice water park that keeps growing every year. Its probably doubled within the past 3 years or so.

I'm guessing here but the 3 biggest are most likely:

Wild Water Kingdom http://www.dorneypark.com/map/index.htm

Sandcastle http://www.sandcastlewaterpark.com/map.htm

Camel Beach http://camelbeach.com/parkmap.shtml

Looking at all the maps, it appears that WWK is the biggest especially since they are adding the 10 slides for next year. Sandcastle and Camel Beach look to be pretty close in size.

I imangine the biggest water park competition in PA has to be WWK and Camel Beach since they are both in the NE section of PA.

I really hope Dorney's updated waterpark will be enough to have another record year for the park. If it does, it's three record years in a row.

The upcoming expansion will make WWK the largest waterpark in PA, I am sure of that, and I belive that before now, Sandcastle was slightly larger than WWK.

I remember when Wildwater Kingdom was built it was the popular new thing. They used to have a daily dance show that would air from there everyday in the Summer. I forget what the name of the show was. I was probably around 10 & 11 years old at the time. WWK is the only PA waterpark I have been to unless u count Knoebels pool, or Williams Grove's Cesspool waterslides. ;)

Ya Camel Beach has a tolet bowl. ONe you do in a tube and the other is body and let me tell you, the body slide is pretty intense. You spin aorund so much that when you drop in the pool they have to blow a whistle so you know which way is out. Its really fun.
