Byron Betts first opened a park in 1977 on a 12 acre piece of land and called the park The Enchanted Village. The park was a small local park in its first few years with very few attractions to speak of. In 1984, Wild Waves Waterpark was built right next to the Enchanted Village. The two parks combined to be called Enchanted Parks and in 1991, co-owners Michael Moodenbaugh and Jeff Stock paid $8 million for Enchanted Parks. In 1993, many rides from Boblo Park in Canada were brought to the parks and added more capacity as well. The stock in the park was eventually sold to Six Flags in 2000 and more focus was put on the waterpark which instantly became the region’s largest. In 2007, the park was sold to CNL Income Properties and is still owned by them today. They continue to invest expansions into the property and have contracts with companies like S&S Power.
Today the park is full of thrills and chills throughout the park. The park has roller coasters like Timberhawk and Klondike Goldrusher that will thrill event the greatest enthusiast. The park has great flats like the Timber Axe as well. The park also has a great waterpark that includes slides and pools of all sizes. If you are ever in the state of Washington and you find a day that is not rainy, head on into Wild Waves Theme Park where you will always be part of the celebration.
