Over Thanksgiving weekend, Calypso Theme Waterpark welcomed over 12, 000 visitors who got an exclusive look at some 35 water slides and attractions, as they admired the installations of this huge 100-acre site.
“It was an emotional moment for the employees at Calypso Theme Waterpark, who finally welcomed the region’s population. Visitors were clearly amazed with the immensity of the park and the scope of the work that was performed in the last 2 years, said Mr. Guy Drouin, president and CEO of Groupe Village Vacances Valcartier. The positive comments we received confirmed that the official opening on June 7, 2010 is anxiously awaited.” Several visitors took advantage of the reduced pre-opening price, available before Christmas, to buy season passes as well as gift certificates.
Calypso Theme Waterpark is located between Montreal and Ottawa, on Hwy 417, exit 79, in the municipality of La Nation. All of its attractions revolve around themes and allow the visitors to discover the fantastic universe of pirates, of a science lab, of a kid’s aquatic zoo, of a jungle river, as well as several other themes.
As early as June 7, 2010, visitors will also be able to enjoy waves as high as four and a half feet in the gigantic 50, 000 square feet wave pool, the largest in Canada and the size of three NHL rinks.
The construction of this new theme waterpark generated over a hundred jobs during the past two years and will result in the creation of 500 new seasonal jobs in the lifeguarding, food and beverage services, as well as retail, maintenance and guest services department, to name a few.
