"We are thrilled to kick off our 16th season and invite families back to Raging Waves this summer," said Randy Witt, Co-Owner of Raging Waves. "Offering guests the very best in family fun has always been at the forefront for our team at Raging Waves, and we cannot wait for guests to enjoy all that our water park has to offer!" Witt left his corporate job to fulfill his dream of opening a water park along with his wife, Dawn, and his brother-in-law, Scott.

This year the park has new decking and lounge chairs along with additional seating.
