5 attractions of Amazoo waterpark

Granby, Quebec: The Amazoo waterpark is a part of Granby Zoo. It was founded in 1953, by Mr. Pierre-Horace Boivin, he was Granby’s mayor from 1939 to 1964. The waterpark has five main attractions, and the Zoo currently has more than 1000 different animals grouped into 200 species.

The Zoo is divided into four continents, Africa, South America, Asia and Oceania. Amazoo waterpark is a continuity of the South American continent and, more specifically, mirrors the immense forests and water ways of Amazonia that give the park its name. Granby Zoo team has developed this unique and fully-integrated concept which is now waterpark’s signature attraction. “Everything has been designed to reproduce the dwellings typical to the Amazon river shoreline,” says Samuel Grenier, M.A. Customer Services Manager.

This year, The Granby Zoo has injected over 3 million dollars in the Amazoo waterpark, adding the Amazon Descents which is the most popular attraction. “Each slide has its own personality as represented by the three huge animal-shaped 3D structures that can be seen at the plunge pool. The Anaconda is a fully-enclosed slide, the Ara is a partially-open slide while the Piranha has riders twirl around a bowl,” added Samuel Grenier.

The Granby Zoo is also one of Quebec’s major tourist attractions. More precisely, the fact that the access included the zoo section, which included a rides section, and also the waterpark section is what distinguishes this place from the other attractions park. Few attractions offered an experience so unique and varied. The Amazoo waterpark is open from the beginning of June to the end of August and this period is the best time to visit it.
