Wild Waves and Enchanted Village Opens for Thrilling, Chilling Summer Season

Pacific Northwest's most popular theme and water park SCREAMS in summer with 25 thrilling rides, fun family events and Washington State's biggest roller coaster!

WHAT:

If you haven't been to Wild Waves and Enchanted Village lately, then you haven't been to Wild Waves and Enchanted Village at all! With more than 25 thrilling rides and attractions, a 24,000-square-foot wave pool and TimberHawk, Washington State's biggest roller coaster, visitors won't believe how much the Northwest's favorite summer destination has changed in the past three years.

In 2003, Wild Waves and Enchanted Village introduced TimberHawk, Washington state's biggest roller coaster. Standing at 75-feet-tall and reaching speeds of 50 miles per hour, this wooden roller coaster introduced a new scream factor to the Northwest's largest theme park. In 2002, the park added 10 new rides, including splash coaster Lumberjack Falls, thrill ride the TimberAxe, the twisting, turning Klondike Gold Rusher - and two new entire themed sections.

Twenty-seven years since its grand opening, Wild Waves and Enchanted Village today offers 70 acres of thrills, chills, fun and excitement to visitors of all ages. One day at Wild Waves and Enchanted Village will help remind everyone that LIFE SHOULD BE FUN!
