YORK-Water Country USA’s younger guests will have a new area of the park to explore later this month.

The water park’s newest attraction, Lil’Surfers Splash Pad, is expected to open on Friday, July 15. The attraction will feature fountains, spray cannons, and a kiddie water slide. Lil’Surfers Splash Pad is replacing the former Kritter Korral attraction near the wave pool.

Lil’Surfers Splash Pad is one of two new attractions at Water Country USA this season. In May, the park reopened its popular Aquazoid ride as the renovated Aquazoid Amped, a water slide that now features a special effects show with music and lighting.

In addition, Water Country USA introduced a new food stand this year, Surfer’s Bay Bar that features a variety of craft beers and frozen tropical drinks.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
