The Hurricane Harbor water park at Six Flags America will kick off its 2010 season with an "extra splash weekend" on May 22-23, featuring a new-look wave pool and an all-new show.
The Hurricane Bay wave pool has received a new "resort-style" look, and will also play host to The Hurricane Bay Deck Party, a new song and dance show which will be performed daily on the Sunset stage. In total, the park now features 19 slides and attractions along with a number of dedicated children's swimming areas.
Hurricane Harbor will be closed from May 24-28, but will then be open daily from May 29 through August 24. The park will also open on August 28-29 and September 4-6, and opens each day at 11am. Entry to the park is included with a ticket for the Six Flags America theme park, currently priced at $49.99. Season Passes - which cover both the theme park and the water park - are currently available for the same price (a $20 discount on the regular $69.99 price).
Six Flags America's main draw for the new season is likely to be its new Thomas the Tank Engine-themed area, Thomas Town. No opening date has been confirmed for the area, which will be the largest Thomas-themed area in North America when it opens. Full details of the rides and attractions that will feature in Thomas Town, along with an extensive image gallery, can be found in TPT's recent news article.
