It’s hard to believe, but Six Flags Great Escape has gotten even “bigger, better, and wetter than before!” Today we had the exclusive chance to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for Hurricane Harbor and it did not disappoint. Here’s what we have to look forward to at this prime Lake George area theme park.
A Festive Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Featuring Madison VanDenburg
The ceremony at the new Hurricane Harbor featured new Six Flags Great Escape President Rebecca Wood, Queensbury Town Supervisor John Strough, and New York State Assemblyman Dan Stec.
American Idol finalist Madison VanDenburg performed Fallin’ by Alicia Keys, a song she also sang on the singing competition show, and completed the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Animal characters in attendance made the celebration that much more fun, and the whole event was set to live music with a tropical island vibe.
What to Expect From the New Hurricane Harbor
Hurricane Harbor is a 14,000-square-foot water park with two new primary editions, Bucket Blasters and Shipwreck Cove, plus a dining location, Shark Bites.
Lucky kids from a local elementary school were the first to try out Bucket Blasters, an interactive ride where riders spin around in water barrels equipped with water guns.
Shipwreck Cove is also ready to go – this 2,000-square-foot play area has an activity pool for younger kids, two different mile-high geysers, and structures spraying water. Behind Shipwreck Cove guests will find shaded seating, so they can relax in lounge chairs when they’re not splashing in the water.
Altogether, Hurricane Harbor has over 40 rides, slides, and attractions. Make sure to stop by Six Flags Great Escape soon to check out the new editions and everything else this all inclusive park has to offer!
