Roseland Wake Park, Canandaigua, NY

Roseland Wake Park

We love checking out new things, and when my husband discovered the Roseland Wake Park, we thought it would be a cool experience for our kids to try.  Both of our girls are avid swimmers and love the water, so we took a trip out to Roseland Wake Park, located in Canandaigua, New York.

We headed to the main check-in, filled out waivers and paid for a Learn to Ride program.  The kids are 8 and 11, and the program was $49 for each child to have assistance learning to get up on the board and then to use the rest of the park.  At 1pm, the cables speed up and is not good for beginners.

The kids were set up with their gear – helmets, life vests and wake boards.

We headed to the beginner area, and the kids strapped their boards on.

For beginners, you start off learning about wake boarding and how to get up on your board.  The kids started in the water, with a line slowly pulling them as they tried to get into a standing position.  The lines are on a cable system and controlled by a remote control.

There is always someone in the water with the beginners.  The board and vest float, so it’s a matter of getting in the right position to try to get back up on the board when the cable pulls you.

Once the kids were able to stand on their boards, we moved over to the full course.  The instructors were very helpful and patient, working with the kids through many tries to stand up.  The lines here go a lot faster, so while they were able to stand on the beginner course, this was a bit harder.

Slowly getting the hang of it..

The instructors were so helpful, and soon enough the kids had the hang of it!

Eventually the kids started making it out further and further.  So when they stop on their wakeboard, it means a further walk back!

There was plenty of parking, even though this is next to the Roseland Water Park.  When we arrived at 9:45am on a Sunday, we had the place to ourselves, and when we left just after 1, there was still more than enough parking available.

    Because I don’t know anything about waking boarding but I’ve seen how its down, how do you stay afloat when you feet are locked into the board? I suppose your life jacket right? I I assume the board floats but that you can’t stand on it without it tipping unless you are up to speed? Regardless it looks fun and your kids seemed to have a blast.

    I thought that said “Snow Room” for a minute and I was dreaming of sno cones lol. I’ve never been water-anything like this. I’d love to try one day though.

    That looks like so much fun! My kids would totally love to learn how to wake board. Since I have no idea what I’m doing, it’s awesome to have such attentive staff to help.

    I have heard of this park in NY but haven’t been there may be because I don’t have kids. It seems kids really had a great time.

    This place looks like a cool place to hang out. Would definitely visit someday.

    I would never think to visit out a water park in New York. It looks like a lot of fun! My kids love going to the beach and harbor in Lake Michigan, but’s it’s not quite the same.

    I have been to a wake boarding park/resort but I was just too scared to even try! Your little girl is so brave and thanks to the ever supportive instructors. Great photos, great place! Am sure you had a blast.
