We picked up one of these ahead of our upcoming trip:


Has a cable tether so we can loop it around/lock it up to a lounger. Fits a couple of phones with enough extra space for a few other small items if need be.
I got one of those as well. Seems to work well. Security will want to look at it before entering the park. Apparently the locking mechanism sorta looks like a blade in the baggage scanner.

I was there a few weeks ago and the whole thing was closed down and dry as well. Had the bottom of the slides blocked off.

99% sure they’re doing something with the slides. Longer ending presumed.
Yeah, it’s been non-operational for at least a couple months now.

I’m going to say that’s a really good assumption. ;)

Any expansion I would love to see something that kids in the 40-42 inch range can ride with their families. Not that we've been yet, but looking at the ride list it seems very much "kids here, adults over there". I guess just a family raft ride with a bottom rather than a cloverleaf.

As pointed out in our What's Happening update, Punga Racers will be closed through May 31 for planned maintenance. Lengthy refurbishment with all things considered. I haven't heard anything but seems like a fix is finally on the way.
Are you referring to a fix for the low weight limit due to the injuries? I've still been putting off going here because it seemed like things may have been built too quickly.

That’s not an issue of it being built too quickly.
Maybe being built too quickly was the wrong choice of words. I know that there were unfinished things when they opened along with fluctuating weight capacities. Between those items, the whole shocking thing, and also an injury that I have personal knowledge of, I've been waiting it out. Plus my son can't swim good enough yet.

Maybe this summer will be the summer we give it a shot.
