Did you know there is an enchanted forest in Canada where you can soar over a bright lazy river? The incredible ride at a Cultus Lake amusement park isn't anything like that tire swing you played on as a kid. Instead, your feet will dangle high above the shimmering turquoise water.
One hour and 20 minutes from Vancouver, you can find the theme park on Cultus Lake. It is right across the street from Cultus Lake Waterpark and has a ton of rides that you will want to try — like this magical swing.
This year, they are offering new entrance tickets that are a fantastic deal. For $25, you get to enjoy unlimited rides and mini-golf for four hours straight.
One not to miss experience is The Wave Swinger, which is one of their signature rides. You'll be raised way over the water where bumper boats play below your dangling feet.
Unlike a classic swing at your neighbourhood playground, here it will tilt and swirl in different directions, so you'll want to hang on tight. Like a Ferris Wheel, you'll also get to marvel at the breathtaking views of the surrounding park.
Depending if you go in the day or evening, it will be a different experience.
In the daytime, you can enjoy the best panoramic view, while at night, it is extra eye-catching with all the glowing lights.
You'll also want to try Bucky's Bumper Boats. Boarding a boat a friend, you'll go right under The Wave Swinger as you float next to waterfalls and dodge water spray blasters.
This year, you can visit from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be a limited number of tickets available, and you won't be able to pre-purchase them.
Instead, you'll need to arrive at least 30 minutes ahead of time to buy them onsite.
Who would you bring to join you? It is time to make some plans to enjoy an unforgettable day.
