Lake Winnepesaukah officials today announced they will build a new water park by summer 2013.

The expansion on the west side of the park near the Cannonball Roller Coaster will begin in January and be completed by next summer.

The multimillion-dollar expansion will include a lazy river, wave lagoon, body slides, tube slides, racing slides and a splash park for toddlers.

It will include lounge seating, concessions and shops.

“We decided to kick it up a notch,” said Talley Green, public relations director for the park located in North Georgia. “Today we announce a multimillion-dollar water park.”

Georgia State Sen. Jeff Mullis, R-Chickamauga, said he, like many in the community, grew up with the park and is excited to see the expansion. “I’ll have to don my new Speedo and enjoy it,” he said.
