This is just Phase 1, Phase 2 will be complete next year. Phase 2 includes a huge 38,000 square foot wave pool, relocation of shark attack slides, a brand new slide tower with all new slides, a new regular lazy river, a children's pool in the middle of it, and at the foot of the lake, an adult area with huge whirlpool spas, waterfalls, and a swim up bar. In 2006 WWK will be one of the largest waterparks in our country.
Great America's Hurricane Harbor has alot to offer right off the bat, but is smaller in comparison to WWK. WWK will cover over 20 acres, while the new HH will be covering 13 acres. HH will have a 32,000 square foot wave pool, a tree fort struture titled skull island, and is one of the largest tree forts built. Three different slide towers, each with about 4 or five a piece. An action river, no water gyser battles though.
One other thing to note is that Geauga Lake will have the Hurricane Hannah's waterpark open as well this year, since phase 2 of WWK won't be complete until 06'. It features a 28,000 square foot wave pool, the shark attack slides and a lazy river.
You get easy access from Hurricane hannah's to Wildwater Kingdom via the Ferry Boats. You just walk down across the bridge over the lazy river, turn right down the path straight to the docks. get on the ferry, and take a trip across the lake to the Wildwater Kingdom docks.
I'm going to GL&WWK this summer. thatas my choice. That interactive action river, Tornado slide, and Thunder Falls complex is enough to draw me away from Six Flags Hurricane harbor.This is just my opinion.
Actually there are more slides than that. It will end up having 25 slides. I believe on 5 slide towers. check out the webcam on the six flags web site. It is really starting o come along. I saw yesterday they were already adding water to our wave pool.
