A look back at the summer of 2022
It's already the last weekend of activity at the Water Park; the summer has gone by so fast! Unforeseen events, celebrations and great moments took place during the 2022 season. Let's take a look together!
An arduous start
The summer started on a difficult note. After the passage of a derecho at the end of May that left thousands of branches and trees on the ground, the Saint-Sauveur region was hit once again by severe storms on June 23. The heavy rainfall created significant damage in the area and particularly at the Water Park. Several attractions, pools and pumping stations were affected by the debris, which forced us to close a large part of the site. Our field crews were put to the test, and it is thanks to them that we were able to restart operations at full capacity before July 1st. Thanks again to all the staff members involved in one way or another.
A long awaited return
After a forced absence due to the pandemic, Pinso finally made his return to the Park for the summer and we couldn't be happier. Season after season, Pinso warms the hearts of young and old alike; this funny penguin always knows how to make you smile.
To celebrate his return, we went all out! First, we launched the Turbo Pinso, a brand new slide at Parc F.U.N. featuring our dear friend. A beautiful launch event was held on a warm and beautiful Friday afternoon. Pinso even tested the slide and then cut a ribbon as part of the inauguration. A few weeks later, we celebrated Pinso's birthday for the first time since his return! There were entertainers, DJs, make-up artists, a juggler, a magician and even other mascot friends. It was definitely a great family event not to be missed. Welcome back Pinso!
Did you notice it too? Our summer was relatively cool, cloudy, windy, stormy... More than usual! This affected our operations. However, there were several beautiful days as well, and we made the most of them! We sincerely hope that you were able to join us on one of these days and we keep our fingers crossed for plenty of good weather in the coming seasons!
Beautiful moments under the stars
In July, we held 4 outdoor movie sessions at Parc F.U.N. . Many of you came to experience these moments with us: thank you for coming!
The summer of 2022 was exceptional despite a few bumps in the road. It was a pleasure to welcome you. There is one last weekend left before the Park closes; this will be the last chance to have fun in the water before 2023. Hope to see you there 😊
