Choctaw Open Geyser Falls

By  | 

More than eight water slides, and a lazy river to boot. Geyser Falls Water Park beats the heat.

Responses from the children were positive, from "It's great," to "Today's been a lot of fun," to "I went on this and this and this, this is the best!"

Chief Phillip Martin of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, which owns the development, opened the park. All slides will be up by the weekend. The Backsplash already is.

"Believe it or not, the park is about more than just fun, it's a new direction for the resort," said Martin. "This will attract people from all over."

"This park is family oriented and provides 250 jobs," said park manager Steve Mayer. "The economic growth spurs us to build more."

Thousands of jobs are expected to be added with upcoming developments.
