There were a lot of happy people returning to The Superslides at Kenosee Lake on July 24, as the very popular water park owners had been waiting patiently for the go ahead to open from the Saskatchewan Health Authority [SHA].
It was a perfect day to open as the weather was hot, reaching almost 30 C on opening day, and continuing sunny and warm through the weekend.
Capacity is restricted to 150 people so the waterslide park is operating in two blocks to achieve capacity each day. The site is open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., closing for an hour to clean and sanitize, and then reopening to a second block of customers from 3-7 p.m. each day.
The park was operating at maximum capacity on July 24 and 25; July 26 was close to a sell out as well for the popular attraction.
On July 24, the slides had a special attraction of pro wrestling on site which was being filmed by a production crew from Regina for the reality television show Mobile MD starring Dr. Samantha Henley. The show features the doctor travelling Saskatchewan in an R.V., attending to patients in rural areas of the province.
Coming up on the August long weekend at The Superslides at Kenosee Lake will be Super Hero Sunday which will run July 31 and Aug. 1 as well. There will be capacity limits and patrons will be able to book the 100 of the 150 tickets online or hope to be one of the first 50 inline for each block daily on the weekend.
Harvey and Jan Armstrong are “very pleased” to have the water park up and running and are “extremely grateful” to their patrons thanking them for their support and patience on waiting for the slides to reopen.
