July 28, 2015
Fishkill, NY, July 28, 2015 – SplashDown Beach has been named a 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award winner as a Top 25 Water Park in the United States. The Fishkill attraction received the #16 spot, beating out several well-known water parks throughout America. Travelers’ Choice Award winners are determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travelers around the globe.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition as one of the best water parks in the country,” said Steve Turk, President of Turk Hospitality Group, which owns and operates SplashDown Beach. “Since purchasing the park in 2004, we’ve invested over $20 million dollars in new rides, refurbishments and aquatic training and safety programs. Our mission is to continue investing heavily in new attractions geared towards our young family market; and of course, we have another new surprise coming for 2016! SplashDown Beach just keeps getting better and better!”
SplashDown Beach expanded again this summer with the opening of the $2.5 million Arctic Mammoth Family Raft Ride. At over six stories tall and 650 feet long, the Arctic Mammoth is one of the largest family raft rides in the Northeast.
SplashDown Beach, America’s Biggest Little Water Park, is located in Fishkill, New York, just 60 minutes from New York City. Owned and operated by Turk Hospitality Group since 2004, SplashDown Beach offers water fun and adventure for the whole family. New for 2015, the Arctic Mammoth Family Raft Ride is a 5-person raft ride down six stories of twists, back-to-back curves and vortex loops. Thrill seekers will experience an adrenaline rush on Arctic Plunge Racer, a 5-story mat racer that launches riders into a head-to-head drag race to the bottom, flying over vertical curve humps and gaining even more speed before landing at the finish line.
