Northern California’s largest and “most thrilling” waterpark will reopen this spring with both a new attraction and a new identity, courtesy of Six Flags.
The park operator is waving goodbye to the Waterworld name, which the 30-acre facility in Concord has traded with since 1995, in favour of Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Concord. It is also set to debut a large water play area called Splashwater Island.
A new entrance marquee will greet guests as they first enter the waterpark. Other upgrades will include newly renovated dining areas and shops. Many of the water slides and attractions will receive bright and reinvigorated paint treatments plus fresh signage. Luxury cabanas and comfortable lounge chairs will be available for rent.
The largest addition to the park in over a decade, Splashwater Island offers more than 100 interactive sprayers, water jets and geysers. The multi-level play structure features dancing fountains, water curtains and a giant tipping bucket. Guests will climb up ladders, splash down seven thrilling slides and navigate multiple platforms and climbing nets.
Waterworld Concord was founded by Six Flags predecessor Premier Parks and later transferred to the portfolio of CNL Properties. It is now operated by Six Flags on behalf of EPR Properties,
The new look Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Concord opens for the season on May 5. Six Flags fans can take advantage of combo season passes available for both the waterpark and nearby amusement park Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Don McCoy oversees both properties as president on behalf of the regional park operator.
