In pictures: Setup day at Manitoba’s first floating inflatable water park

Posted by Adam in Recreation, 6/16, 6:03 PM

When news broke earlier this spring of Manitoba’s first floating inflatable water park coming to Lake Minnedosa, Southwestern Manitoba Internet went bonkers. 

The day has finally come when those behind Minnedosa’s Splish Splash Water Park setup the new attraction on the East Side of the lake. I was fortunate to have been invited out for a sneak peak and have included a few pics below of the crew including a jet ski operator, two divers, park owner Gerry Champagne and others putting everything together piece-by-piece.

Splish Splash announced earlier this month updated pricing that includes day passes ranging from $18.99 to $26.99 depending on age. Reduced rates apply in various situations including if an adult is accompanying a child, if one is a Minnedosa resident or if one is stopping in after 5pm. An hourly rate has also been introduced as a way for those looking to make a more brief stop-in without committing to a whole day. 

Note that everyone attending is required to sign a waiver, which as a time saver is made available on the park website ahead of time for those that wish to fill out in advance. 

Full info on rates and other aspects of the park, which opens next Saturday June 22, are on its website at https://splishsplashwaterpark.com
