In its place would be a seemingly identical water park, owned by the same people as before, but with a different name: Splash Canyon.
The business backers of Wild Rivers are raising money to open new parks in Temecula, Bakersfield and Irvine.
The offerings at the new park, according to the Times:
Tentative plans for the Irvine water park include:
* Water coaster with a magnetic lift hill
* Family raft ride
* One or two wave pools
* Lazy river
* Half-pipe raft slide
* Bowl slide
* Rain forest play area with a giant water bucket
The developers plan to team up with the Discovery Science Center to create an educational theme for the Irvine water park.
A good number of those things are already at the park. Hmmm. We've got calls/emails out to Wild Rivers and Splash Canyon; we'll let you know the details as they come in.
