Looking for a great summer outing for a smokin’ hot day with high energy kids? Head to Cultus Lake Waterpark for a day of watery fun! We wanted to find out about the famous water park so we chatted with James Kassier, Director of Marketing at the park.
Q&A with Cultus Lake Waterpark
Best waterpark by far, that I have ever been too” “Definitely going again this summer
Give us a quick overview of the waterpark.
Since opening in 1984 (that’s 34 years ago folks!), Cultus Lake Waterpark has continuously expanded and improved to become BC’s biggest and best waterpark. We are a safe and clean waterpark with slides and attractions for all ages, plus some of the most extreme waterslides you will ever ride!
What are three cool things kids (or families) can do there?
- The Colossal Canyon is a must for the family. Takes up to 5 passengers down a whitewater rafting simulation. Most people never ride it just once – too much fun!
- Splash in our many interactive kid-friendly areas such as; the Pirates’ Cove, the Adventure River, the Turtle Slides and Pool, plus the all new Family Spray Park and Tot’s Castle!
- Bring your own picnic or rent a BBQ and enjoy our many complimentary shaded areas in the park or take a break from packing your own lunch and enjoy a wide variety of food and beverage from our 5 Food Service outlets.
How should families prepare for their time there?
Take a few minutes on the website to find out food and beverage restrictions (what is not allowed inside), and to look over which of the many rides and attractions (over 25!) that you will enjoy.
Arrive early to stake out your best place to setup in the park.
Ride the Boomerang first (it gets to be the longest, slowest moving line later on), then head off to other fan favorites like the Colossal Canyon and Radical Rapids.
Be sure to bring your sunscreen and plenty of water on sunny days.
Stay late to wait out the crowds and get a pile of sliding in before your day is done!
Why should everyone put you on their summer bucket list?
If you want a big North American Waterpark experience without the big travel and accommodation costs that normally go with it, you have to add Cultus Lake Waterpark to your bucket list. It will become the new “gold standard” by which you compare all other waterparks you will ever visit!
