A tidal wave of change and additions are happening at Davidson County’s Elevated Wake Park for the 2021 season.

Park founders and owners Dan Batchelor and his son, Morgan Batchelor, haven’t even blown out the candles on the park’s one-year-anniversary cake yet, but they are working to add new attractions. Those additions include an aqua park, summer camps, second-floor restaurant and paddleboarding.

“We want to bring in more people and more kids … a younger crowd,” said Morgan Batchelor when talking about the aqua park. “It’s basically like a trampoline park on the water.”

The aqua park is an inflatable, optical course with several stations that require different skills to get through the tasks. The 120-foot by 80-foot aqua park should be set up and ready for customers in April.

The five to six different stations have different names, like the catapult, which is a swing that shoots participants through the air or the Jungle Jow 2, which has people climb up to a large slide for a swift ride back down. Other sections include Blockade, an obstacle course; I Hop, jumping station; Neptune, balance beam.

A Roulet Junior station would be in the center of the aqua park. It has a see-saw-like ride. Batchelor added that each connection between the different stations will also have activities.

Exact prices have not been set yet, but Batchelor said he expected the cost will be paid by the half hour session and would be approximately $30.

The owners of Elevated Wake Park, the only wake park in North Carolina, have many additions planned for the 2021 season including an aqua park, paddleboards, summer camps and a restaurant on the second floor of the park's building.

The aqua park will also be part of several week-long summer camps Elevated Water Park staff will offer. Six, week-long camps beginning in June and continuing until August will be offered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $300 per week. Children and teens will learn how to ski, kneeboard, wakeboard and use the aqua park.

Additionally, the very popular “Boat-Day” will be included with the summer camp, according to information on the park’s website about the summer camps. Every Thursday, campers will go to High Rock Lake for a day of wakeboarding, wakeskating and wake surfing with the coaching staff.
