AAA Editor Notes

Water Country USA, 176 Water Country Pkwy., is said to be the Virginia's largest water park, offering 43 acres of pools, children's play areas, lazy rivers and water rides. Celebrating the music of the 1950s and '60s, Rock 'n' Roll Island features nearly 600 feet of body slides, a 700-foot lazy river and a 1,000-square-foot pool. Hubba Hubba Highway is a free-floating interactive river ride where coconuts, cacti and geysers provide a drenching experience. Colossal Curl is the water park's newest attraction and features a combination of funnel and wave elements. Vanish Point is a 75-foot-tall vertical drop slide, and Meltdown takes riders on a high-speed toboggan race down a flume full of twists, turns and banks. Visitors can experience the rush of a thrilling wipeout on Malibu Pipeline or take a family white-water rafting ride aboard Aquazoid. Racers can see who passes the finish line first on Nitro Racer, a super-speed slide. Other rides include Jet Scream; Rampage; Surfer's Bay, a wave pool; and a water-soaked children's area with H2O UFO, Kritter Korral and Cow-A-Bunga. Food is available.
