Funtasticks Family Fun Park, which is owned and operated by ProParks Management of Orlando, Florida, has been offering family fun in Tucson for 23 years.
Now the park is moving the fun to the next level with CACTUS SPRINGS, an interactive water play attraction, which opened to the public on July 2.
The Cactus Springs water play structure has multiple levels and features colorful water slides and multiple gigantic tipping buckets that dump 1,000 gallons of water every 10 minutes on funseekers at the park. The new structure also has bubbler jets, water wheels, water curtains, and waterfalls which provide plenty of water fun for children and families to enjoy together.
“Cactus Springs is an amazing new water attraction that guests will love,” said Funtasticks General Manager Bill Pegg. “It will add an interactive family friendly attraction to “beat the heat” and compliments the excitement of our kiddie land rides, go-karts, arcade, laser tag, bumper boats and the ‘clean-safe-fun’ experience we provide to each of our park visitors.”
