Silent Sunday: Funtown/Splashtown, USA

             Right here in my neighborhood, Saco, Maine,  is a wonderful Family Fun Park. It's called Funtown/Splashtown, USA.  It's located on Route 1, just off the Saco exit of the Maine Turnpike.  There's something for everyone to enjoy:


                               The Park Opens usually Memorial Day Weekend.


                                                      There are bumper boats

A Family Raft Ride


               A pirate head bucket dumps 500 gallons of water every two minutes!

                                  There are 8 Water Slides!

Including one that is totally dark!

The Tornado!


The Log Flume Ride



      The Dragon's Descent:  A 220 foot tower which is the tallest attraction in Northern New England.
                A breath-taking free fall bringing you a Negative G experience!


                       Excalibur--a wooden roller coaster that is the largest in Northern New England.



                                           Maine's largest steel roller coaster--

                                                                    The Wild Mouse


                                                          The Flying Trapeze!


                    All this and more in my neck of the woods_-just waiting for your visit!

jules said...

Do you know the log flume as always scared the crap out of me. As a young child and still today. I feel a little panicky just thinking about it now to tell you the truth!

Marg said...

Wow those are great looking rides except I am not of the riding variety. I don't like to do that kind of stuff although those look like a lot of fun. The tunnels sure are big. Thanks for a nice look at some summer things to remind us that summer is coming. Have a great day.

Do you ride these things, Eva? That roller coaster looks like fun, I like them, but water rides, not so much.

Love the log ride. I can not wait to take my boys to an amusement park. I loved going with my Dad when I was kid. So much fun.

Wonderful.
This reminds me of the school fete which was held once in two years. And there used to be lots of stalls with games. The big attarction was the giant wheel and the merry go round.

AriaArt: It's certainly a popular spot with tourists in my town!

Steven: A roller coaster nut! You are just full of surprises!

Marg: I don't do those rides anymore, either! And yes, I believe summer is coming!

Jules: I went on it once years ago; it is very high and quite the rush!

LadyFi: Actually, many companies rent the place out for their company outings. So lots of adults enjoy the place too!

OceanGirl: You're welcome, and thanks for visiting!

Stereos and Souffles said...

Loved water parks as a kid! Not sure I want to run around in my swimsuit in public.

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Awesome! I will be sure to bring the margarita bucket and some munchies for afterwards. :) All our snow has virtually melted. I am in HEAVEN.

Eva Gallant said...

Flory: This one is quite high, and when you go into that nearly vertical drop, it's a real rush!
