AURORA, Ohio, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- It is all about Dad when Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom celebrates Father's Day on Sunday, June 20 at the Aurora, Ohio, outdoor waterpark.  During Dad's day, there will be dancers, cheerleaders, a crazy cat and a challenging hole-in-one contest worth mega bucks and power tools.  There will also be plenty of quality time with the "Big Guy."

For starters, the Goddesses, the official dance team for the Cleveland Gladiators arena football team, the Gladiators' cheerleaders, aka, the Kickoff Crew, and their mascot, Rudi, Cleveland's craziest cat, will all perform at Wildwater Kingdom from 1-3 p.m.  The dancers, cheerleaders and gymnasts will make appearances on the Wave Deck and at various locations around the park.  

Other special guests on Father's Day will include the Burning River Roller girls, members of Cleveland's first all-female flat-track roller derby team.  The female roller-derby players will give a demonstration of the rules and techniques of a roller derby bout at 2 p.m. on the Wave Deck.

Guests will also be able to compete in the Home Depot Hole-In-One Contest, where they can win a $1000 Home Depot Gift card.  The hole will be 85 yards over Geauga Lake.  All players will automatically be entered into a drawing to win other prizes including Wildwater Kingdom merchandise, an Ohio State grill cover, a Ryobi 12 Auto Hammer and a Rigid 18 V lithium-ion compact drill/driver.  Golf balls will be $5 each.  A portion of the proceeds will go to ACCESS, Inc., a shelter for homeless women and children in Akron.

The park will also offer the Dine with Dad Meal Deal, an admission ticket/meal combo, valid only on June 20.  With the Dine with Dad Meal Deal, guests will receive admission to the park along with a meal consisting of regular-sized soft drink, french fries and choice of a cheeseburger, jumbo dog or slice of pizza.  Tickets can be purchased online at

Fathers aren't the only ones who will enjoy their day at the park.  Thrill-seekers can challenge water slides and the Tidal Wave Bay wave pool, while children can play in the new Beach Family Fun Area.
