A Water Park. I mean really, the city is called "Famously Hot". I could see one connected to Riverbanks Zoo.

I agree we could do better but the one at Ft. Jackson is pretty good and open to civilians.

I know what you mean though, last weekend we packed the kids up and went to Wet N Wild in Greensboro. It was awesome.

There is one for Free called the Saluda & Congaree River.

Hang out by the rapids behind the zoo. Swim, drink beer and and smoke stuff. Just hang out. Ride/ swim the rapids. That was a favorite hangout during the Columbia summers.

Or head down the Congaree, just downstream of the Blossom St bridge there is an old ship lock you can jump off. Loads of fun.

But this was 15 years ago. They might have "cleaned-up" that area behind the zoo.

It's still the same, I know last year they were trying to stop people from going down there all together, don't know if its changed but I agree, good times on those rocks.

A water park seems like a risky investment. One would be the liability when injuries occur. Two, would be when the city gets its sees it turning a profit and starts to tax the bejesus out of it. Three, would be when the city or state, through, environmental policy, starts to make you buy all sorts of permits and spend extra $ on account of the amount of water and water testing.

It sounds like a great idea, but I wouldn't want to build it. It could be a disaster.
