BESSEMER, Ala. (WBRC) - The new season at Alabama Adventure & Splash Adventure kicks off on Saturday.
Season ticket holders got a sneak peek on Friday. As part of the opening, the park is debuting new attractions.
“Guests ask us ‘what’s new this year?' That’s one of their favorite questions," said Mom Pat, also known as the General, who owns the park with her son, Dan Koch. “We were able to do three new attractions, which is wonderful.”
Those new attractions include an 80 foot tall water slide, one of two new ones this year. There is also a new ride called the Galleon, which is a big ship that rocks you back and forth.
“Also there have been a lot of improvements to the park in terms of appearance, facilities, sidewalks,”explained Dan Koch. “Things that will make for better guest experience because we’re all about making guests, team members, and friends happy. That’s what we love to do, and that’s why we’re here.”
The park will be open for 13 consecutive weeks until August 18th, according to Koch. After that they will be open weekends, closing for the season after Labor Day. Koch says buying season tickets is the best deal and includes special perks. You can buy tickets by going to the park’s website.
