    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

  • New Water Park Action for 2012

    by Casey | Posted on June 11th, 2012

    As summer heats up the natural thought is to cool off. Fortunately, there are quite a few water parks in Virginia and several have new fun additions you’ll want to check out.

    Vanish Point at Water Country USA

    Water Country USA in Williamsburg is pure H2O fun (more than 30 rides and attractions’ worth) and now has Vanish Point – your choice of two “liquid adrenaline” ways to drop out of sight from 75 feet up. Choose from a slide where you “drop down as soon as you flop down” (no easing up to the edge) or a skybox where you never know when the floor will drop out from under you. My stomach’s in my throat just thinking about that free-fall. Whoah.

    Alexandria’s talk of the town is Paradise Play at Great Waves. Kids are already enjoying this 30-foot-high tower of climbing fun, and it’s the largest water play feature of its kind east of the Mississippi!

    Ocean Breeze Waterpark in Virginia Beach just opened their brand new Adventure River on a 3 1/2 acre expansion. It’s more than 1,000 feet long and ends and begins at a shallow lagoon. The whole family can float for a relaxing ten minutes.

    Even when there’s no snow on the ground, there’s a great reason to visit Massanutten Resort – the Indoor/Outdoor WaterPark. Not only can you get your surf on with Pipeline, take a float down the Blue Ridge Rapids, or enjoy the White Caps wave pool, but now you can do it with a live band every Monday and Friday night. With the nighttime entertainment also comes extended hours. Play until 9 PM rather than 7 on those two days each week.

    The Homestead Resort in Hot Springs is undergoing a major transformation and it’s to the water lovers’ benefit! Allegheny Springs is opening in stages. As a guest of the resort you can enjoy the brand new pool, children’s pool, sandy beach area, and whirlpool areas now, but in August the lazy river, fun slides and cabanas will be available. It’s two acres of mountain resort bliss.
