Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park will celebrate its 14th year of operations when it opens for the 2018 season tomorrow, May 26 at 11 a.m.

“When things heat up in the Antelope Valley, there’s one place where no one seems to mind— and that’s DryTown Water Park,” said DryTown Water Park Manager Eric Dombrowski. “Our family-friendly facility will provide you with hours of fun this summer. One of the best values around is a DryTown Season Pass which pays for itself in just a few visits. And if you purchase your season pass between now and opening day, you’ll get a free one-day ticket to bring a friend.”

Season passes and day use tickets are available at www.DryTownWaterPark.com

DryTown will be open daily from May 26 through Aug. 7. From Aug. 11 to Sept. 9.

The summer season will also feature seven “Sundown at DryTown” events on June 22 and 29; July 6, 13, 20 and 27; and Aug. 3 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $14 for customers 48” and taller, $12 for customers under 48” tall, and free for ages 2 and under. Season pass holders are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the admission window on the day of each event or online at www.DryTownWaterPark.com.

New this summer will be “Splash Theatre”, where attendees will be able to enjoy three blockbuster feature films while at DryTown. Movies scheduled to be shown are “The Secret Life of Pets” on July 12; “Finding Nemo” on July 19 and “Finding Dory” on July 26. All access tickets include movie viewing, but patrons are also able to purchase “movie-only” passes for $4 each. Season passes, however, are not valid for Splash Theatre,

DryTown, the six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park features a 925-foot lazy river, a 35-foot waterslide tower with three waterslides and splashdown pool, a four-lane racer slide, and a 6,000 square foot children’s water playground. It is also the Antelope Valley’s only water park and features Dusty’s Grill; a General Store with souvenirs and sundries; covered picnic area; and a large grassy area for group outings.  Parking is free.
