Serengeti Surf Hill at Enchanted Forest Water Safari Old Forge, New York  updated from 6/2015 and 6/2016  Opening Day: June 14, 2017 Water Safari,  3183, State Route 28, Old Forge, NY My ADK kids have braved the twists and turns at Central Adirondack's  Old Forge's Enchanted Forest/ Water Safari 's water park on numerous occasions. With over 50 rides to choose from, 32 of them water rides, Enchanted Forest Water Safari is New York's largest water-theme park. Water Safari 2017 Dates:  Wed, June 14 - Mon, September 4! During the heat of the summer going to a favorite swimming hole is always on our radar, but finding a clean, well organized, inexpensive amusement park/water park can be a bit more challenging. Sometimes there are hidden costs or fees  and I want the only surprise I get when I go to a water park to be the temperature of the water. (The water at Water Safari is warm.) What is included with Admission:  Enchanted Forest/Water Safari

Water Safari,  3183, State Route 28, Old Forge Serengeti Surf Hill at Enchanted Forest Water Safari Old Forge, New York   My ADK kids have braved the twists and turns at Old Forge's Enchanted Forest/ Water Safari 's water park on numerous occasions. It's mostly been chaperoned trips during the shoulder season to New York's largest water theme park when their school and a few other Adirondack institutions have taken over the whole park. We were given a group price and welcomed into the empty park to have our run of the slides and amusement park rides. During the heat of the summer going to a favorite swimming hole is always on our radar, but finding a clean, well organized inexpensive amusement park/water park can be a bit more challenging. Sometimes there are hidden costs or fees and I want to research all my options. I want the only surprise I get when I go to a water park to be the temperature of the water. (It was warm.)
