Water slides being installed at new Rec Center

Both of the water slides have arrived at Lynnwood’s new Recreation Center and are now being installed.

The 205-foot-long innertube slide will accommodate up to two riders at a time. You will enter the slide and quickly exit the building in a fully enclosed and temperature-controlled tube. After a series of dips and turns, you’ll exit into the 3.5-foot deep splash pool where you can continue into the lazy river.

The 169-foot-long slide is built for one rider at a time and is a bit steeper and faster.

The slides don’t require any swimming ability, but will have minimum height requirements: 48 inches tall for the innertube slide and 40 inches tall for the other slide.

Each time you ride a slide you’ll be timed and your time will display at the exit.

The remodeled Rec Center is expected to open in April.

  1. New revenue source? I’m thinking a buck a ride tax should be coming down the slide (so to speak) any day now. How else is the city going to “buy back” night time hours for the police station lobby? Come people, your family is at risk & crime will run rampant!

  2. Maybe that’s one reason the City of Lynnwood is broke! Putting in unnecessary toys, what’s wrong with a simple pool?
