Siouxnami Waterpark is making a splash in northwest Iowa. The state’s newest waterpark has been welcoming hundreds of fun-seekers daily, and many came to celebrate the official ribbon cutting Wednesday.
“We’ve already seen Siouxnami drawing people to Sioux Center, and we think it’s going to continue to be a great attraction to bring people to our community and region,” said Sioux Center Mayor David Krahling.
Siouxnami offers fun for all, with Iowa’s only aqua zip line, a lazy river, a 16-foot climbing wall over the water, low and high diving boards, and more. Thrill seekers can enjoy a 212-foot-long body slide, a 253-foot tube slide, and a 64-foot speed slide. There’s a teen corner, concession stand, lounge chairs in the sun and shade, and plenty of pool space to enjoy the water.
“The last 16 years we’ve been called ‘Destination…Fun!’ Well, I think the fun meter just blew up on us,” said Dave Ruter, director of the All Seasons Center and Siouxnami Waterpark. “We’ve got people of all ages coming from all over to enjoy this place. What I see out here is it’s a place where friends and family gather.”
Siouxnami connects with the existing outdoor and indoor pool areas at the All Seasons Center. These offer zero-depth children's pools, a slide pool with a waterfall, additional water slides, lap lanes, a hot tub, and diving boards.
The new Siouxnami Waterpark and the All Seasons Center are owned and operated by the City of Sioux Center, with affordable rates for all to enjoy. Businesses and organizations may rent the waterpark for an evening on the weekend.
“Our council and former mayor Dennis Walstra had outstanding vision and leadership to take this initiative and move it forward,” said City Manager Scott Wynja. “Providing quality of life amenities and services is one of the ways the City can help facilitate growth as our community continues to thrive.”
