Enchanted Forest Water Safari

Editor's Choice New York's largest water theme park with over 50 rides and attractions. Enchanted Forest Water Safari is a combination amusement park and water park. Inside Water Safari you'll find 31 exciting attractions, including a large wave pool, lazy river, thrilling tube slides and high-speed body slides. This water park has a unique collection of "old school" water slides and rides. including rare foam body slides and downhill river tube chutes.

Sadly, the Killermanjaro speed slide with a 280-foot long descent where you reached speeds of over 30 miles-per-hour and the foam mat racer Serengeti Surf Hill were retired after the 2019 season. Fortunately, however, the fully enclosed Bombay Blasters speed slides remain offering a disoriented descent in complete darkness that ends by blasting riders out several feet above the splash down pool. It's a classic water park thrill ride.

For the 2020 season three new rides will replace what was retired. Serengeti Stampeded is a new 293-foot long, four-lane mat racer that begins with enclosed, intertwined tubes. For thrill-seekers Mamba Strike and Killermanjaro's Revenge are respectively 285-foot and 207-foot long speed slides with a drop capsule.

Also, not to be missed is Raging Rapids an exciting white river that sends riders roaring down a twisting hillside tube chute.

Other rides include The Curse of the Silverback a double-rider tube ride that sends riders careening down a 100-foot drop into a giant 40-foot bowl that spins you in circles before flushing you into the splash pool below. Families can ride together on the Cascade Falls raft ride, one of the best of its kind in the country! Water Safari also has a wide selection of water rides sized just right for young children.

In addition to the water park there are 8 classic amusement park rides, including a Ferris wheel, Rock-O-Plane, sky ride and miniature train.

The arch in the front parking lot welcomes visitors to Enchanted Forest Water Safari. This iconic structure was hoisted into place by a large crew of workers and a massive crane in time for the 1968 season. The arch came from the 1964 New York City World's Fair and was trucked to Old Forge in 1967.
