Pa.'s Idlewild & Soak Zone to add 'Lazy River'

Published:

LIGONIER, Pa. (AP) -- The Idlewild & Soak Zone amusement park in southwestern Pennsylvania plans to add a new attraction called the Lazy River before it opens for the 2013 season in the spring.

The "river" will flow in a continuous loop 15 feet wide and more than 600 feet long.

Moving currents will allow guests to float slowly along the river in inflatable tubes that will come in adult and child sizes. The water will be about 2½ feet deep.

The Lazy River attraction will also feature water sprays in certain areas and a 6,000-square-foot beach area featuring cabanas and lounge chairs.
