MERIDIAN -- It will probably feel a lot like summer this weekend, as the forecast is calling for temperatures near 90 degrees!

Roaring Springs Waterpark plans to capitalize on the public's need for cooling off by opening its doors this Saturday.

Thrill seeks can also enjoy the park's newest ride - the Cliffhanger Speed Slide - which debuts this weekend. Riders step into a launching capsule, then wait for a trap-door to open, plunging them six stories in four seconds, reaching speeds up to 35 miles per hour.

May 11th marks the earliest opening in Roaring Springs 14-year history.

Roaring Springs will be open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.

The park plans to be open the following weekend, and then seven days a week starting on May 25, weather permitting.
