AURORA, Ohio, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Big thrills, relaxation and watery fun are just a few of the ways to celebrate the Fourth of July at Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom.  

Located in Aurora, Ohio, Wildwater Kingdom will honor active, retired and honorably discharged military personnel with FREE admission on Sunday, July 4 or Monday, July 5 (with a valid ID).  Family members of military personnel can also purchase one-day tickets on these days for only $20.99, a savings of $6 per ticket.

During the July 4th holiday weekend, the park will also offer a admission ticket/meal deal that will be available Saturday through Monday, July 3-5.  With the 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 wildwaterfun.com.

Now through July 4, guests can purchase a four-pack of Wildwater Kingdom Season Passes for anyone 48 inches or taller in bare feet for just $44.99 per person, a savings of 15 percent per pass!  With a Season Pass, guests can enjoy free parking and all of the attractions of the 17-acre waterpark every day during the season, a welcome reprieve for those hot summer days.  

At Wildwater Kingdom, guests of all ages can enjoy a variety of water slides and special attractions.  With 390,000 gallons of water, Tidal Wave Bay is one of the largest outdoor wave pools in Ohio.  Thrill-seekers can challenge the Liquid Lightning tornado slide, a 60-foot-tall water slide that sends four-person rafts through a chute before spiraling back and forth in the giant funnel-shaped structure.  Standing more than 10-stories-tall, Thunder Falls is Ohio's tallest water slide complex.  

New this season is The Beach Family Fun Area, a new children's attraction that features a giant chessboard with movable playing pieces such as knights, rooks and pawns.  There is also an arcade and special games designed just for kids as well as a sandy beach area overlooking Geauga Lake where families can play in the sand or relax.

Wildwater Kingdom is now open daily through Aug. 22.  For additional information about Wildwater Kingdom, please visit wildwaterkingdom.com or call the park's General Information Line at 330.562.8303.
