With rave reviews coming in already concerning phase 1, and rumors of a Bowl slide and a Master Blaster in phase 2, will the water park desperate Northern Ohio find themselves with one of the country's best water parks?

If phase II includes a bowl slide and a master blaster, I think it will definetly be a top 3 in the nation. Especially if it's still included with the $24.95 admission.

I would say it will be one of the top water parks when phase II is complete.
I heard that Geauga Lake was the first amusement park that offered a water park as well. Is this true?

Yes, Geauga Lake was the first park to incorporate a waterpark in the same admission. GL will always have this feature. For anyone who thinks WWK will be a seperate gate, you couldn't be further from the truth. The waterpark has, and always will be the main draw at the lake.
I talk to Bill Sphen quite a bit at the park, as I am there at least once a week, and I usually see him around. Last time I talked with him, I mentioned all the people who were worried about a seperate gate fee. He said for me not to listen to that, because they have no plans of seperating the 2. It's one of the values of the park that keep guest coming in.
As for price next year, it shouldn't be any higher than 28 bucks. up a couple dollars from this year. Hwever, it is believed that the 24.95 price structure will remain through 06'. WWK will be one of the best, there is no doubt, as phase 1 has already made a huge impact. WWK is and will be, one of the most beautiful, well themed waterparks out there. Not to mention world class water attractions.

And as soon as they build an indoor waterpark, either at the GL Hotel, or a new resort, then they can start adding some flats, dark rides, and a coaster or two:).

Dorney does the same with the water park being included in admission. I think it's smart in the smaller parks to do this since the water park is part of the draw. Go to Dorney and where are most of the people. In the water park.

Same with Holiday World, you can walk on the coasters all day due to the crowds being in the waterpark.
