Fun-Plex to Add New Attractions

See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

Omaha’s Fun-Plex has plans for a $5-million expansion that will bring new attractions to the park.

The enhancements will take place over the next four years, and include a ride for families to enjoy together: Makana Splash. Expected to debut in 2015, the new attraction will be a 40-foot-tall water playground with four slides. Jets and wheels will spray riders, and a 317-gallon bucket will dump water onto those below.

Fun-Plex will also add two other water attractions — one with six mat racer slides, and another with three tube slides that twist and turn. Cabanas, deck space, and another attraction are in the works, too.

This is the park’s first expansion since 2007, when it added a roller coaster.
