Yankee Clipper

Time to Cool Off!

Yankee Clipper is the best way to cool off this summer! Get your friends or your family and hop in a boat for a great ride through our scenic park. Start off by cruising through trees and nature taking a relaxing ride through the water.

Once you begin climbing up a lift hill towards to sky take in the incredible views of the park as your boat goes along a winding path. Suddenly you'll begin to plunge down a 60ft drop with plenty of water and splashing to get the whole crew wet and cool!
