Double the fun with an amusement park and a waterpark

All at the same location: Saco, Maine. How efficient. This is the perfect place to gather together every branch of the family that has a kid or few, because as its name indicates, at Funtown Splashtown USA there is something for everyone. It has the only wooden roller coaster in Maine as well as a steel one, if you’d like a smoother, swifter ride. The Astrosphere, that contains the Scrambler ride accompanied by a light & sound show. In Cactus Canyon you ride in a mini-canoe, winding along a watery trough. Thunder Falls is the state’s longest and highest log flume ride, and Dragon’s Descent is the tallest thrill ride, taking passengers up 220 feet and plunging them down several times.

Family Owned and Operated Whitewater Rafting Business

Crab Apple has whitewater action on the dam controlled Kennebec and Dead Rivers in scenic Maine. Daily rafting trips for family fun and adventure start on the Kennebec with Class 3 and 4 waves and exciting rapids. Rafting on the Dead River includes water that runs at two levels - intermediate Class 3 and extra thrilling Class 3, 4 and sometimes 5. Younger kids will love the rides in a raft and will be instructed to "hold on" while guides row the rafts through the biggest waves. Base camp offers lodging, a pub and restaurant, and the outdoor and heated pool. Still need to burn off some energy? Step onto the four Rapid Shot Paintball fields day after rafting!
