Daytona Lagoon water park is reopening Saturday after last year’s season was cut short in the wake of Hurricane Ian.
The attraction is planning new events and improvements to the park, including a new restaurant, new cabanas and upgrades to the restrooms.
“We have missed seeing our water-park patrons and all of the excitement from the kids that it brings,” general manager Tyler Currie said in a news release. “We also can’t wait to introduce new fun experiences, along with new upgrades.”
Special events kick off in early June. Daytona Lagoon’s summer character series begins June 5 with interactions with Red and Chuck from Angry Birds. Upcoming themes include princesses, superheroes and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
