Water Safari Opens for the 2022 Season Wednesday, June 15th

Old Forge, NY – New York’s largest water theme park, Enchanted Forest Water Safari, opens for the 2022 season on Wednesday, June 15. The weather is anticipated to be very conducive for water park enthusiasts according to Farmer’s Almanac, which is predicting New York and Northeast will have seasonably warm weather that is drier than normal.

Guests will notice 8 new cabanas at the park at these locations:

  • 2 at the bottom of the newest rides – Serengeti Stampede, Mamba Strike, and Killermanjaro’s Revenge
  • 2 between the Wave Pool & Amazon River
  • 2 along the path from the Wave Pool to the Adirondack Expedition
  • 2 on Cabana Island in the Adirondack Expedition next to the Sawmill

Boardwalk Fries and one of the three ‘Dack Shack locations serving adult beverages at Enchanted Forest Water Safari have a new building for 2022, located in the front of the park adjacent to the Shadow. “We have outgrown our space in the old Boardwalk Fries building and due to the popular demand for Boardwalk Fries, it was time to expand,” said Katie Wojdyla, Vice President and Director of Marketing.  The ‘Dack Shack is moving from its shared location within Tropical Treats.  “The larger footprint will allow us to be more efficient and accommodate more guests for better speed of service,” she added.

Visitors this year can enjoy the twice-daily family circus show featuring acts from the Royal Hanneford Circus including aerial lyra, juggling, clown, hire-wire and two motorcycles in the giant steel globe.

Water Safari Resort’s Stay ‘N Play package features discounted lodging at nearby Old Forge Camping Resort (excluding cottages) or Water’s Edge Inn, Sunday through Thursday nights and discounted tickets to Enchanted Forest Water Safari.
