Too bad the kids are in their 20's now, can't use them for an excuse.

I went there 2 weeks ago, and hey! I saw plenty of adults having a great time.



While it is not a huge waterpark, each of the slides are very fun. Especially to go down on a tube together. Not to mention the method to get to the slide (going through a 747-100) is a must for aviation geeks!   

While you are at the waterpark, check out the Aviation & Space museum. Now you can basically get a full days worth out of the Evergreen campus. I recommend it.

I was there before the waterpark opened. The museum in itself was amazing, and now a year later, it looks even more fun. Did they finish building the hotel yet?

Did to see one of the comments on that article "How many water park's can say th have a 747 & it's Boeing" as apposed to a Airbus 747 

Wouldn't mind visiting myself

This is one of DL's original 747-100s that they took delivery of in the 70s.

I've been to the waterpark, and it is an amazing site, particularly at night when the plane is illuminated.

The process for "installing" the plane is almost as impressive as the waterpark itself. There's a video in the room at the top of the slides inside the fuselage.

I don't think there's a hotel under construction yet. There is a nice Comfort Inn across the street.

Cool. But how strong should that building be to hold a 747?

The McMinnville airport is right across the street.
