The new and improved park is nearly double the size of the original park.

Wild Rivers water park in Irvine is finally open after being closed for 11 years.

The new park is 50% larger than the original, with over 20 acres of fun, and 20 family-friendly attractions for both thrill-seekers and those looking for more low-key excursions.

Four of the attractions are six-person raft rides -- the first ones for a park outside of the Orlando market. One of the six-person raft rides is the 600-foot-long "Aquaconda."

The president of Wild Rivers, Mike Riedel, said the park has a "little bit of everything," from body slides, a wave pool, a lazy river, two-person raft rides, a water coaster, kiddie slides and more.

Wild Rivers will be open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Aug. 14; 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 15 through Aug. 19; and varying hours every weekend and holiday through the end of September.
