Aqua Adventure Waterpark, Fremont's new favorite local destination for sun and fun seekers alike, opens daily starting June 18. Waiting for weekends to arrive is over whether choosing to speed down water slides, swim in the lap pool or just relax and catch some rays. The outdoor park offers much more than the individual recreation of four towering water slides, lap pool and a 700-foot lazy river. It is also available for birthday parties and company or group picnics and swim lessons as well. Birthday party packages combine park facilities with great food and fun activities for guests as the honored birthday guest enjoys special status. "We have been taking party reservations since January. Right now our weekends are booked through August 1. It is amazing, said Lance Scheetz, Aqua Adventure sales and revenue manager. "With the number of requests coming in, we actually hired more staff."
Season passes have sold out. "Approximately 2000 season passes were sold and we are no longer selling season passes. People now buy a daily pass to come into the park. There are a couple of ways to enter the park. If you are a season pass holder you can show up on any regular day during business hours," said Scheetz. "If you are not a season pass holder, you can purchase a ticket the day you arrive. We have pre-sale discounted tickets for groups of 15 or more, which can be purchased 72 hours in advance or more. Tickets for the water park can also be purchased as part of a birthday package or a company picnic."
Stay fit with lap swim lessons that start June 18. A daily ticket is $6 and season pass holders are eligible for a reduced price of $4. A punch card, good for 10 visits, is available for $50,. For those who prefer to walk, register online for river walking class. Geared for ages 15 and above, the class will be held for 4 weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:45 a.m.-7:30 a.m.
The park is open daily until September 1. "After that, we are open Labor Day weekend and then the waterpark will be closed for the season," said Scheetz. We may have some special events and company picnics." Washington Hospital and PG&E have planned company picnics exclusively for their employees "We are planning to add some family Fridays later in the summer, where we'll offer extended hours that will be announced on the website," said Scheetz. Admission is $14.99 for Fremont residents and $15.99 for nonresidents. Children shorter than four feet tall receive a $5 discount as they are not allowed to go on the big slides.
