  • A young girl is cautious about the cool water in the Hightide Wavepool.

  • Only the bravest attempt taking a leap of faith into the pool at the Canyon Cliffs. The water is 16 feet deep below the 23-foot high cliff.

  • Brave young men and women lined up for the thrills associated with the Tarzan Swings attraction.

  • Helmets are required and supplied for riders on Rogue River ride.

  • Action Park visitors are shown about to disappear into the narrowing cone of High Anxiety, clearly the most colorful of the park's many rides and attractions.

Mountain Creek Water Park opened last weekend with the renaming of the summer attraction to the moniker of the long past Action Park.

Starting this weekend the park will be open seven days each week throughout the summer months and into September.

New attractions are near completion and will be ready for visitors in the days ahead. Learn more at
