You know summer is JUST around the corner when Darien Lake opens!  The area's biggest theme park is set to open Saturday, May 7th.

Expect the return of some awesome thrill rides such as Rolling Thunder, Boomerang and the Mind Eraser and a new edition to the water park Splashtown, Ripcurl.

The theme park explains the new attraction:

"a six lane insane water slide racing complex. With more than 40 feet of “plunge” and 300 feet of “run”, this mat racing water slide speeds guests head first thru colorful and translucent braided tunnels twisting and turning before shooting into the open, multi-bump racing lanes."
