    MIDDLEBURY, Conn. – If maneuvering down a raging river’s extreme rapids in a raft is on your bucket list, the wait is nearly over.
    Splash Away Bay waterpark and Quassy Beach open for the summer season on Saturday, May 25, at Quassy Amusement & Waterpark here.
    Considered the most thrilling of the 15 slides featured in the waterpark are Category 5 Rapids, three extreme raft rides.
     Installed new last year, the raft rides have a combined length of more than 1,000 feet and are located in what was a picnic grove area of the property adjacent to the existing waterpark.
   “These are massive slides with each one providing a different experience,” Quassy’s Eric Anderson explained. “They incorporate some of the newest and most exciting technology in our industry.”
    “Within the past several years, we have invested heavily in the park with new water attractions, amusement rides and infrastructure improvements,” Anderson added. “We’ve added a new family ride this year, Bouncing Buggies, and made other improvements throughout the park.”
    Splash Away Bay also has a splash pad and Slide City for youngsters, plus Saturation Station interactive water play area with a huge tipping bucket.
New Café
   In addition to the new slides in 2018, Quassy also constructed Splash Away Bay Café & Deck overlooking Lake Quassapaug. Guests at Quassy Beach and the waterpark can purchase food and beverages at the café and enjoy rooftop seating.
  Quassy Beach will also host three after dark parties this summer with live entertainment at each of the functions. July 4th will also feature a beach event for the annual 3-D fireworks display, shot from barges on the lake.
