We absolutely adore our little guests and the presents they bring us! Their creativity warms our hearts and their enthusiasm for our waterpark is why we love having the jobs we do!

We want to give a big shout out to Allie, who recently brought us Boomer’s Tree House Waterslide that she made for us. It’s currently on display at Candy Cabin and we took a moment to interview her about it.

Here’s what she had to say:

1. How did you come up with the idea for Boomer’s Tree House Waterslide?

I came up with the idea because my school had a STEM project challenge and asked the students to create a waterslide. I love playing in my tree house and playing with my friends and racing them down the slides at Soaky Mountain.

2. What materials did you use?

I used paper, wrapping paper, a napkin, cardboard, paper towel rolls, contact paper, blue plastic streamers, oats container, forest animal figures, plastic containers, velcro, foam pieces, fake flower stems, markers, hot glue, wood squirrels and acorns.

3. Did you have help?

My mom helped me shape the slides a little and helped with the hot glue.

4. How long did it take you?

It took a few weeks to design the project and gather the materials needed for it. Then it took about 2 days to build the project.

5. What was the best part about making it?

Thinking about how cool it would be if Boomer had something like this to race his friends and it was fun testing out the waterslide with bouncy balls and racing the bouncy balls down the slides.

6. How old are you?

I was in first grade when I made the waterslide project and will be going into second grade in the fall.

7. How often do you visit Soaky Mountain?

The first few times we came to Soaky Mountain we came with friends on the bring a friend days, then the next year we got season passes and we come about 2 times a week during the season.

8. What is your favorite thing to do when you are at Soaky?

Race my friends down the waterslides in Boomer’s Bay.

9. What is your favorite thing to eat at Soaky?

Chicken tenders and French fries.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A teacher.
