Please explain a water park.
Water parks are a wonderful thing.
Do you remember “J’s Amusements Park” in Guerneville, CA? It was deep in the middle of the tallest woods and across from the best pee-wee golf ever. The park had a questionable water slide with mild (pre-teen “lifeguard”) supervision. It was wonderful.
Most recently I visited the other water park of my childhood – “Noah’s Ark” in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Under new management and because I am now in my 30’s, the experience was unfortunately lackluster. Half the park was closed and we ran out of things to do in just a couple hours. Our last visit a few years ago lasted two full days and resulted in a deeply earned sunburn.
Still, water parks, are one of my favorite vacation options. Every single water park, regardless of when it was built, is a trip back to the 80’s – lots of neon, frivolity, and teenagers. While I could do without the teenagers (I have recently decided than anyone under the age of 32 is the worst), I love this nonsense world of decadence and splashing.
