Travel is an attitude

The Long Weekend of Fun set for this weekend at Wildwater Kingdom in Aurora is a perfect opportunity to test the attitude of travel. If you haven't gotten away this summer the exotic animals to Radio Disney dance parties on the wave pool deck, will be a true getaway from the everyday and a great way to wind down to fall.Festivities will kick off Saturday (Aug. 6) with Jungle Terry showcasing his hand-raised animals and reptiles on the wave pool stage from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. It's a hands-on, interactive program in which you can pet and hold reptiles including snakes and baby alligators. Exotic birds from Parrot Hope Sanctuary will be located near the main gate.
On Sunday, August 7, Radio Disney teams up with Chevrolet for a high-energy show on the wave deck pool from noon to 2 p.m. Then on Monday, Aug. 8, Cleveland Indians’ Chris Perez and Slider will visit Wildwater Kingdom. Perez will greet guests and sign autographs from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. near the front gate of the outdoor waterpark. Before that, Slider, the Indians’ mascot, will be wandering around the park mingling with guests starting at 11 a.m.
Beat the heat to challenge the 60-foot-tall Liquid Lightning tornado slide, frolic in the surf of the 390,000-gallon Tidal Wave Bay wave pool or slide down one of seven slides at Thunder Falls, Ohio’s tallest waterslide complex. Children play in Little Tikes Town or splash and soak everyone on one of Splash Landing’s four-stories of watery fun.Details: 330.562.8303
