Water park season is upon us.
Illinois’ largest waterpark, Raging Waves, opened for the summer on June 4 and is celebrating its 15-year anniversary. The public can once again enjoy 32 water slides, 43 private cabanas, the enormous wave pool, the relaxing lazy river, and much more.
For those thrill-seekers looking for their fill of adrenaline, Raging Waves is now also home to the first Proslide RallyRACER™ in Illinois and one of three in the world. The six-lane mat racing water slide, named Aussie Mat Dash, invites up to 5 friends or family members to rocket down slides next to each other and see who is the fastest of the pack.
“We are thrilled to kick off our 15th season and invite families back to Raging Waves this summer,” said Randy Witt, Co-Owner of Raging Waves. “Offering guests the very best in family fun has always been at the forefront for our team at Raging Waves, and we cannot wait for guests to enjoy all that our waterpark has to offer!”
Located at 4000 N. Bridge St. in Yorkville, the park spans 58 acres just 45 minutes southwest of Chicago. Nominated as one of the cleanest waterparks in the United
States, and featuring several award-winning slides the park has grown and grown since opening in 2008 with 17 waterslides. In addition to the 32 waterslides and 43 private cabanas now found at Raging Waves, it also features a ¼ mile-long lazy river, a 350,000-gallon wave pool, three kiddie pool areas, and 11 different dining options.
