If you've never been to Enchanted Forest Water Safari before, you're probably wondering what you can expect. First, the park was ranked among the nation's top water parks. But it's not just about the water features (although they're some of the best).

Enchanted Forest has amusement rides like the "Tilt-O-Whirl," "The Scrambler," and a Ferris Wheel. They also have an arcade for a nice break from all the sun and water.

Now on to the good stuff - The water attractions. If you're a thrill-seeker, "Killermanjaro" is for you. This intense water slide is going to have you reach speeds of up to 30mph. It's the tallest and biggest slide in the park (and you can see it from a distance before you even get to the park). If the huge slide isn't your cup-of-tea don't worry. Water Safari has 14 other water slides, rides, and attractions for the whole family. They also have 8 other attractions for the young ones. Maybe get the family together and take a ride on "Cascade Falls," or go through the jungle in a tube while riding "Amazon." You can get a more in-dept look at all their water rides here.

It's perfect for an afternoon of fun in Old Forge, but if you want to stay and soak up a little more sunshine (and water of course), there are specials to "Stay and Play." You can stay at their "Water's Edge Inn" or a the "Old Forge Camping Resort." Both stays offer special discounts for your trip. Details on staying overnight (or for a few nights) can be found here.
