Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park will open for the 2014 season tomorrow at 11 a.m.
“The forecast says it’s going to be DryTown weather this weekend,” said DryTown Manager Eric Dombrowski. “Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s which means DryTown is the place you want to be to keep cool and have fun.”
Season passes will be available at discounted rates through the end of the day.
“A season pass is a great value,” Dombrowski said. “Not only do you get unlimited use of the Antelope Valley’s only water park at a great rate, you also get free admission to the popular ‘Sundown at DryTown’ events held Friday evenings during the summer.”
Season passes and day use tickets are available at www.cityofpalmdale.org/drytown.
DryTown will be open tomorrow through Monday, May 26 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will also be open Wednesday, May 28, and daily beginning May 31 through Aug. 11. From Aug. 16 to Sept. 14 the park will be open weekends.
The six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park features a 925-foot lazy river, a 35-foot waterslide tower with four waterslides and splashdown pool, a 6,000-square-foot children’s water playground, including a 50-gallon vortex splash bucket, three water rings and two water cannons, and the new Dusty’s Mineshaft Racer, a 4-lane racer that launches riders headfirst into a 360 degree turn in an enclosed tube, before plunging 40 feet down open-air lanes for a downhill dash to the finish line and a serious drenching.
Food and beverage concessions this year at DryTown will be handled by Subway at Dusty’s Grill. The popular Subway fresh menu is available, with healthy options. Customers will also be able to enjoy their DryTown favorites, pizza, cold drinks, yogurt parfaits and more.
“DryTown Water Park offers an exciting, family-friendly park where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the water, great food and comfortable atmosphere,” said Recreation Coordinator Laura Rice. “It’s also available for group activities or private rentals. Youth groups, teams, companies, family reunions, church groups, schools, fundraisers, organizations, camps and more may take advantage of special group rates.”
