Lower Area Water Slides

The two long water slides in the lower area use mats to slide on. These water slides can be fairly gentle rides, or if you lay back, the slides become pretty fast. The water slides include a viewing area with benches. When we visited, the benches were nicely shaded by the mature trees.

There are four large water slides in Yogi Bear’s Wetlands. Each of the four slides starts in a main tower, however two slides exit into the pool, while two slides have a splash down exit. Each of the slides are pretty fast.

Tip: On cooler days, keep in mind the two water slides that exit into the pool have heated water.
