Tuesday, January 26, 2016

 

A crowdfunding effort has been started to bring a waterpark to the former Rocky Point Park, with goal of raising $100,000 to help make the concept a reality.  

"Remember the fun and excitement of Rocky Point? Then help us start a new legacy for this generation," writes the Indiegogo page.

Tony Jones, Founder of RI Free Radio and host of The Tony Jones show, shared with GoLocal. 

"I am working with them -- ex Rocky Point manager Dave Cascioli is the main guy, he has set up water parks and amusements all over the world," said Jones.  

It is not known where the park will be located. 

"It took us quite a bit of time but we have found two perfect sites and are working the details out with the City Administration before we make any announcements.  We will make an announcement as soon as we are cleared to make the statement," writes the Indiegogo page.

What the park will Feature 

The proposed water park will feature 12 slides including a children's interactive area. The slides will all be of superior height and complexity compared to tis competitors. The park will also include a 20,000 sq.ft. wave pool and a lazy river of at least 900' x 16' wide. 

The park will also be feature a 50' diameter Children's spray pad and a 60' diameter children's interactive play unit that includes water cannons, slides, dump buckets and more.

The Impact it will Make 

The WaterPark is expected to bring in about 100,000 visitors from Massachusetts into Rhode Island. The WaterPark will also create jobs. 

"Jobs will be created to build the park and jobs created to operate the park. Yes, we understand that these may not be year round jobs yet, but the long term plan is to make the water park a year round destination," writes the Indiegogo page.
