Raging Rivers to mark Fourth with 25th beach bash

GRAFTON – To mark its 25th season in operation, Raging Rivers is hosting a giant all-day beach bash on Independence Day and is throwing the admission prices back to what the park charged when it opened on July 4, 1990.

In addition to reduced prices for general admission, military personnel will receive free admission. Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of specials, giveaways and attractions, and each season pass holder will be able to bring one guest for free.

The admittance price will be $12.95, plus tax, for adults and $9.95, plus tax, for children under 48 inches and seniors. Party-goers will be able to play fun games and enter to win prizes, including season passes for next year. There will be party-themed music for guests to groove to while a big beach ball is tossed around the park. The festivities will also include FREE cupcakes for guests to snack on, as well as special pricing on concessions menu offerings.

“We are throwing this birthday bash to show our appreciation for our guests who have made these 25 seasons so successful,” said Donna Smith, general manager of Raging Rivers. “We thank everyone who continues to visit us each season, and we encourage them to join in on the fun and spend Independence Day at Raging Rivers as we celebrate our biggest bash yet.”

The July 4 all-day beach party will follow normal operating hours, from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
