Record season pass sales for Magic Waters Waterpark

Magic Waters early season pass sales ended in March, and the results are very optimistic about the enthusiasm and support for the Rockford Park District waterpark. Almost 5,000 season passes were sold, a record number (4,712) never before attained in the history of the 23 seasons of the waterpark.

According to Interim General Manager Jodi Carroll: “The majority of these early season pass buyers are families who live in the greater Rockford area, and this shows the continued viable support of the Rockford community. It shows we are a good value, we’re nearby and convenient, and it’s a family summer destination. We appreciate the support that’s been demonstrated.”

Through Feb. 14, the season passes sold for $50 were to families that are Rockford Park District residents ($65 non-resident). In addition to the discounted pass fee, customers received an added value package worth more than $65 that included discounts and free items within Magic Waters. New this year, all passholders receive free admission to all Wet Wednesday evening events.

Season passes are still available at a discount through opening day (May 26) for $85 residents ($100 non-resident), and each additional family member is $80 ($90 non-resident).

The 2006 season for Magic Waters Waterpark marks the 23rd season for the premier summer family recreational facility. The Rockford Park District has owned and operated the waterpark since the 1988 season. Millions of people—residents and visitors alike—have enjoyed its many water attractions.

Magic Waters Waterpark… with “Waves of Fun”… opens for another summer on Saturday, May 27, 2006, and will be open daily from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
