Roseland Waterpark Kicks Off Its 17th Season on Saturday, June 24th!

Canandaigua, NY (June 23, 2017) Nothing shouts the beginning of Summer Fun in the Finger Lakes then Opening Day at Roseland Waterpark. This year marks the 17 year milestone for the largest waterpark in the Finger Lakes Region. "Opening day at Roseland Waterpark is one of my favorite days of the year", exclaims, marketing director, Drew Broderick. "It is amazing to see how much these kids grow up when they return each season. It's like a family reunion plus every year we greet a whole group of new families who are experience the majestic setting of Roseland Waterpark for the first time", continues, Broderick.

Roseland Waterpark is known for its 600,000 gallon Giant Wave Pool that has a wave cycle with waves that reach over 5 feet in height. The top of the Speed Slides reaches an astonishing 60 feet tall with views of the entire waterpark and Roseland Wake Park, the only cable wakeboarding park in the Northeast, which is adjacent to the waterpark. The Speed Slides are tube-free slides and not for the faint of heart. All guests love to cruise around the Adventure River, which puts a twist on the Lazy River concept by adding a few "rapids". Mom's love the Splash Factory, sponsored by Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures, which is a mini waterpark inside the waterpark dedicated for guests under 48" tall. It is a zero entry, beach style, entry with mini slides, water guns and a huge tipping bucket that drops 1,000 gallons of water into the wading pool. The Mammoth is a thrilling tube ride that accommodates four guests at a time in a 45' tall shoot with lots of banks and curves that culminates with a huge splash at the end. Lastly, the three tube slides are guest favorites. One is completed enclosed in the dark, one is partially enclosed and the last is a mini replicate one of the Speed Slides that drops straight down.

"I believe we are one of the largest employers of kids in the Finger Lakes region", states, Park Operations Director, Kellie Sick. " The majority of our staff are high school and college age kids and many return each season. Some grew up spending summers at Roseland Waterpark as guests. It is a really family atmosphere", Sick says with a smile.

Roseland Waterpark also offers group rates for 15 people or more coming on the same date with a two week advanced booking. Many parks and recreation groups, the local YMCA, summer sports teams, family reunions, and scouts bring groups each season. Groups of 101+ more guest receive a bigger discount.
