We went on Sunday, July 5 from 4pm-7pm. The weather was gorgeous. I expected the line to be long, given the sunshine on the holiday weekend, but was willing to at least risk it at Hudson Mills because if the kids didn't want to stand in line, they could play at the park instead. We were able to check the line out first before deciding if we wanted a single ride or unlimited. To our surprise, the park was pretty empty and there were only a few other riders (if any).
We started the kids off with the $10 unlimited pass and Grandma with a $2 single-ride, but after the first ride, Grandma went back to pay the other $8 to upgrade to the unlimited! Tickets are available for purchase right next to the slide. Just before you begin your ascent to the top, you get sprayed down (slightly) by a hose. There is also someone at the top that sprays the slide before you ride down.
I really liked that there was a pavilion near the slide and that it wasn't far from the playground. We were able to enjoy our picnic and let the kids run free, coming and going on the slide as they wished.
|Playground to the west, slide to the east, sand courts to the north, open field to the south.|
The pictures and those smiles say it all...!!!
|My 4 yr-old niece was scared to go down by herself the first time, so they let Grandma take her, but after that, pure joy took over the fear...!|
