Celebrating 20 Years of Fun
By Ana Lete
On June 19, 1999, Roaring Springs – a locally owned 15-acre, $15 million-dollar Waterpark – opened with just seven major attractions. That first summer, the water park saw 170,000 guests, a number that has grown to more than five million guests total in the past 20 years.
Since its opening, Roaring springs has added six additional attractions to its park– making it the largest waterpark in the Northwest to date. When asked about the parks’ latest attractions, Tiffany Quilici, Roaring Springs’ marketing manager, said, “The latest $1.5 million Bearfoot Bay kids play area opened just last summer, and includes three new slides and a dozen animal-themed features. It has been very popular with young kids and parents alike.”
