DryTown Water Park opens Saturday but residents only have until Friday, May 23 to purchase discounted season passes.

With the weird weather this year it could be scorching hot or it could be a mild summer. For those hot days floating down the Lazy River could be just the solution. The park opens on Saturday at 11 a.m. but by then the early bird season ticket sales will be over.

“A season pass is a great value,” Dombrowski said. “Not only do you get unlimited use of the Antelope Valley’s only water park at a great rate, you also get free admission to the popular ‘Sundown at DryTown’ events held Friday evenings during the summer.”

DryTown will be open Saturday, May 24 through Monday, May 26 from 11 am to 6 pm. It will also be open Wednesday, May 28, and daily beginning May 31 through Aug. 11. From August 16 to September 14 the park will be open weekends.

The six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park features a 925-foot lazy river, a 35-foot waterslide tower with four waterslides and splashdown pool, a 6,000 square foot children’s water playground, including a 50-gallon vortex splash bucket, three water rings and two water cannons, and the new Dusty’s Mineshaft Racer, a 4-lane racer that launches riders headfirst into a thrilling 360 degree turn in an enclosed tube, before plunging 40 feet down open-air lanes for a downhill dash to the finish line and a serious drenching.
Food and beverage concessions this year at DryTown will be handled by Subway at Dusty’s Grill. The popular Subway fresh menu is available, with delicious and healthy options at a great value. Customers will also be able to enjoy their DryTown favorites, pizza, cold drinks, yogurt parfaits and more.

“DryTown Water Park offers an exciting, family-friendly park where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the water, great food and comfortable atmosphere,” said Recreation Coordinator Laura Rice. “It’s also available for group activities or private rentals. Youth groups, teams, companies, family reunions, church groups, schools, fundraisers, organizations, camps and more may take advantage of special group rates.”
