Six Flags White Water Announces New Interactive Addition for 2010 Inspired by The Wiggles…The World’s Premier Children’s Entertainers
MARIETTA, Ga., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Guests will find themselves wiggling with excitement as Six Flags White Water introduces its newest attraction in May 2010. The largest water park in the Southeast will transform into the wiggliest and wettest family destination with the introduction of North America’s first Wiggles Water World. The Wiggles are the world’s #1 preschool entertainers, having sold more than 23 million videos and 7 million CDs worldwide.
Wiggles Water World will boast five interactive sections spread over 40,000 square feet. The biggest adventure of all can be found at the center of Wiggles Water World on board The S.S. Feathersword, a 25-foot tall interactive play ship. Guests can become Captain Feathersword’s first mate while exploring water cannons, telescopes, net climbs, secret crawl-throughs, port-holes and slippery slides.
And the fun doesn’t stop there – adventure seekers can visit Wags the Dog’s Kennel Slide Tower, splash around in Henry the Octopus’s Pop Jets, explore Dorothy the Dinosaur’s Spray Garden or take a ride on the Big Red Car Slide. The whole family can even grab a bite to eat at the Yummy Yummy Cafe.
“The Wiggles have touched the hearts of children for over 18 years and we are thrilled at the opportunity to bring this unique family experience to our water park,” said Melinda Ashcraft, Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President. “Wiggles Water World is the first of its kind in North America and will make 2010 a very special season.”
After forming in Sydney Australia in 1991, The Wiggles have become the most popular children’s entertainers in the world, combining music with early childhood education. Wiggles Water World will be designed to leverage the group’s vast recognition and status among children ages 2-6. Since their inception, The Wiggles have franchised into other countries, including the development of Wiggles-themed play areas in five other Six Flags parks in the U.S.
Wiggles Water World will join a host of thrilling rides and attractions, including one of the tallest freefall slides in the world, a one-of-a-kind family raft ride and a giant wave pool. In 2008, Six Flags White Water was named “Best Private Water Park in the US” by Aquatics International.
