History Making Splash Lagoon Expansion Now Open

 

BEACH BEND RAW - UNEDITED from Trevor George on Vimeo.
Beech Bend Park's largest water park expansion in park history is NOW OPEN. The multi-million dollar expansion includes Cyclone Saucers, the FIRST EVER North American installation of ProSlide’s FlyingSAUCER ride. This history-making, ground breaking water slide will offer a very unique ride experience. Riders will fly around the edge of three “flying saucers” at high speeds. At nearly 500 feet long with a 55 foot elevation change, Cyclone Saucers is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

Joining Cyclone Saucers are three more new iconic rides. Tidal Wave positions riders face to face as they surge up a thrilling wall and hang weightless before rocketing back down. Riptide features an intense dark ride section, before plummeting into two separate funnels. Polynesian Plunge drops riders from the top of the slide tower into a swirling bowl.

Golden Ticket Awards Announced-Beech Bend Park Receives High Marks

In a ceremony held recently, the 16th annual Golden Ticket Awards were announced.  The Golden Ticket Awards were presented by Amusement Today.  Amusement Today is the world's leading amusement park/water park business journal.  The Golden Ticket Awards have become the industry's most prestigious awards, equivalent to the "Oscar."  Beech Bend Park is very proud to be recognized as the "Fifth Friendliest Park in the World" for six out of the last ten years.  Beech Bend's Kentucky Rumbler was also ranked as the 33rd Best Wooden Coaster in the world! "Hundreds of wooden coasters were considered for these awards. We knew we had a winner with the Kentucky Rumbler the very first time we rode it, but it is gratifying to know the rest of the world agrees," commented Dallas Jones, park president. The Kentucky Rumbler has ranked in the Top 33 every year since it was built in 2006. The Kentucky Rumbler was built by Great Coasters International, Inc. Go to the Rides and Attractions page for fun coaster facts.


Beech Bend Park was very excited when the Sea Dragon was purchased from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch.  While Michael's life was controversial at times, his contribution to the music world is legendary.  With Michael's passing, we have been overwhelmed with calls and visits from fans wanting to ride the Sea Dragon from Neverland.  It's a great ride!
