There are water parks in California, Florida, and New Jersey. In fact, there is a Raging Waters Park in New Jersey. There is even one in Utah. Moreover, there are some water parks in Orlando Florida near Walt Disney World. These water parks are called Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Blizzard beach is a water park in Orlando Florida that looks like a refreshing and cool winter wonderland. These water parks are crowded in the summertime even if it is raining. This is because the rain in Florida both starts and stops rather quickly and after it rains in Florida, it is very hot and sticky. Therefore, being at either Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach during the summertime in Florida is extremely necessary. In addition, California summers have got both hot and sticky over the last couple of years. Therefore, spending a hot summer day and evening at either Knott’s Soak City or Raging Waters is critical to staying calm and cool in the summer time.
Raging Waters is the name of three water theme parks located in San Jose, San Dimas, and Sacramento California. They are the largest water parks in California. The San Dimas water park is more than twice as big as San Jose’s water park and has different attractions. There are many popular water rides at the San Dimas Raging Waters such as Drop Out, High Extreme, Neptune’s Fury, and the Vortex. The most recent attraction at Raging Waters Park is called the Raging Racer. The Drop Out is a seven story water slide, which is the tallest water slide in the country. Riders plunge in the pool below at a near free fall reaching speeds close to forty five miles an hour. Some riders will actually lift off the water slide when coming down it. Raging River is the newest attraction at Raging Waters. It debuted in 2006. Riders race down the eight story lane water slide on head first toboggan mats similar to the mats used on the High Extreme water slide; at eight lanes and over 200 feet long, Raging Racer is the largest water slide of its type in the country. The San Dimas Raging Waters have been used in the films Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Norbit.
