Waterparks and Spray Grounds

The Water Mine

This family water park captures the excitement of the Old West's Gold Rush with attractions tailored for all ages. The Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole offers more than an acre of slides, flumes, sprays, showers, floatables, and an interactive water playground. Careen off covered wagons, float on wild animals and dash through showers tipped from water-filled ore carts. The activity pool is encircled by Rattlesnake River, a 725 foot lazy river you can enjoy a relaxing float as the current gently nudges you along.
