Storyland New Hampshire Adds New Themed Waterpark
Rides 4U - New & Used Rides
In the fairytale world of Storyland Amusement Park in Glen, New Hampshire, things are getting wetter. Located in the White Mountains, the park's former Oceans of Fun water-play spray area is getting a much bigger footprint and plenty of changes for 2024.

The park will be introducing Moo Lagoon, a farm-themed waterpark including a range of interactive features as well as a tower with water slide and some relaxing spaces for parents and kids to unwind. The park promises more “splashes for everyone” at the new spray-ground which will feature multiple levels.

The farm attractions' theme offers a vivid and relatable area for kids, and witty pleasure for parents, too, who are told, per the park's website, that they will be “'udderly' amazed” by the changes. All of the slides and the water features themselves are being supplied by Vortex, located in Quebec, Canada. The company is known for creating premier water attractions that are fun for the whole family.



At Storyland, the slide tower will offer three slides of different heights. There will also be a play structure with a tipping bucket for water dumping, and an interactive splash pad. There will be themed interactive water features including a tractor and flowers that will both squirt park guests for extra soaking fun. The three slides will each provide distinctive thrills. Each will be body slides of varying sizes, making them accessible and fun for kids in a variety of ages. And of course, there will be barnyard structures shaped like animals, plenty of fountains, all providing lots of splashing opportunities for water play, including a zero-depth spray zone, according to the park's website.

Vortex business development director Terry Dubuc says that working with the Storyland team was “a real blast,” one that created many opportunities for imaginative design. Dubuc notes that the new waterpark area will include “something for everybody from ground level play, dumping features, [to] elevated play structures and waterslides.”

The park's general manager Eric Dziedzic relates that the water park is “perfect for our demographic,” asserting that it will complete the park's offerings, filling in a missing piece for family fun. He adds that having a water play area is the one thing the park has been without, and something that can offer guests “cooldown on a hot day.”

Along with introducing the new water features, Storyland will be revamping an existing indoor structure as a changing area with space for a store that will sell items such as beach towels and swimwear if they're needed by families. The new retail opportunity, a piece of the retail market that was also previously missing from the park, is another plus for Dziedzic.

Operated by Palace Entertainment, Storyland's new Moo Lagoon marks just the beginning of new attractions planned down the line. Palace director of construction and maintenance Jerry Brick terms it an opportunity “we have space to continue.”

The waterpark's design was created by Hampton Creative with Wet Engineering handling the filtration.

Choosing a farm and bovine focused theme was purely for fun, based on research indicating what parkgoers wanted, according to Dziedizic. Once the park decided to add a waterpark to their quiver of attractions, they offered four options to the public for votes – and the votes came in strongly for a farm theme for the new watery world.

The park's marketing rep Lauren Fullerton was equally enthusiastic about both the theme and the opportunity for guests to cool down in hot weather. Herself the mom of a small child, Fullerton stresses that “Kids love water,” which is important from her perspective. She adds that there is no ride that is “'just' for kids” in the park. Making memories with their children, not separately from them, is a vital component to the park's appeal, which she stresses will make the new waterpark a great way for parents to play in the water with their children as well as offering places for them to lounge and relax.



Along with the water attractions and loungers, there will also be a new dining option offered in the waterpark. Besides retiring the former and smaller Oceans of Fun splash area, the Tilt-A-Whirl and Flying Skooters rides will be relocated elsewhere in the park.



Moo Lagoon is the newest addition to the 35-acre park, which is home to some 20 rides at present. These include the Roar-O-Saurus Coaster, Swan Boats, and Alice's Teacups, among others. Dziedzic asserts that the park has been and will continue to be the area's “premier destination for childhood fun, wonder and enjoyment.” He says the park is thrilled to be bringing “an entirely new way for guests to cool off in the White Mountains all summer long. The refreshing water area will be a destination for summertime fun, [with new attractions] that will sprout this off-season.”



The park's website proclaims that attendees will  “Zip down water slides of all sizes, then drench your friends with all kinds of silly sprayers... Bring the whole family because there's fun for kids of all sizes, from tots to tweens.”

The park offered up to $50 off its 2024 Season Passes to celebrate both the new waterpark area and its 70th anniversary. The new waterpark should be a perfect adjunct to the festivities at the place “where fantasy lives.”
