“I think there will be an amazing reunion this summer for families and friends,” Johnson added.

As promised at the end of last year, the Splash Summit Water Park has completed a quarter-stretch of multi-year renovation on the man-made river. The all-new Rainforest River is set to debut on opening day.

“The Rainforest River has completely elevated the park’s status and will delight guests as they float around this new masterpiece enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest,” said Spencer Shumway, owner. “This is only the first step towards a fully elevated experience at the water park.

“Over the weeks, months and years, you will feel noticeable differences at the park, and we are thrilled with the changes that are taking place here,” added Shumway.

The new Rainforest River was announced in September 2020 and staff members worked around the clock to ensure it opened on time.

The multi-million dollar, Disney-esque renovation includes an all-new look for a quarter-stretch of the river with trees, plants, shrubs, and even a Mayan temple. The renovation also includes new pumps, motors, lights and propulsion system for the river.
