Water Country – Best Season Ever!

Water Country, Portsmouth NH

2012 Season Opens June 9th

Portsmouth, NH (June 6, 2012) – Best season ever? That’s the goal this season at Water Country! The mild winter has been perfect for Water Country as it allowed plenty of time for all the great new things for the coming season including construction of the brand new slide, DR. VON DARK’S TUNNEL OF TERROR! You’re not afraid of the dark, are you? Find out when you plunge into the screaming blackness of Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror. Riders will sit face-to-face in a 2-person tube then descend into a twisting 40-foot plunge through a totally enclosed, totally dark tunnel. A true work of evil genius, it’s a 300 foot trip into the dark side of thrills. Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror is the park’s newest ride, and the first of its kind with audio and visual elements built into the attraction itself, you won’t know what to expect as you travel through the pure dark attraction at high speed.

Dr. Von Dark's Tunnel of Terror

If total darkness isn’t your thing, rest assured that you can kick-back and relax in a tube as you travel around the quarter mile long Adventure River. Put your feet up and enjoy the ride.  Or take a dip into New England’s largest wave pool – the Giant Wave Pool is 700,000 gallons of pure fun. Race a friend on the Double Dive Boggan – the park’s mat slide racer. Or grab your family and ride the rapids of the large 4-person raft rides on Thunder Falls or Wild Canyon. Water Country’s smaller guests will love all there is to do as they slide down the arms of Ollie the Octopus, or climb, slide and cross the bridges on one of the many features of the Tahiti Treehouse – but beware of the 1,000 gallon water drop bucket that splashes over the entire attraction ever few minutes. Kids and parents alike always enjoy themselves as they try to dodge the inevitable soaking that awaits them.

Chief Maloney Memorial Run Walk

More than 1,300 people have signed up for Sunday’s 4/29/12 memorial run in honor of slain Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney.

The Chief Maloney Memorial Charity Run/Walk kicks off at the Portsmouth police station at 10 a.m. Participants will trek 5.6 miles from the Portsmouth police station to the Greenland police station.

The idea for the event to honor Maloney, who was killed in the line of duty April 12, came to Portsmouth police officer Bob Lukacz days after the tragedy. All proceeds will benefit the Michael Maloney Family Trust.

Lukacz said he sent an e-mail to his fellow officers to see who would join him in a run to blow off some steam in the wake of the shooting and at the same time pay tribute to Maloney. Lukacz hoped to get about 15 people to go for a run, but the event has become much larger. Continue reading…
