Fun-Plex Celebrates 40th Anniversary with a Summer Full of Fun Events

From humble beginnings as “The Kart Ranch” in 1979, to “Nebraska’s Premier Waterpark and Rides,” Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides ( has been providing summer memories for 40 years. In the weeks preceding the park’s opening on Memorial Day weekend, Fun-Plex asked fans to submit their favorite Fun-Plex photo memories via the park’s website and Facebook page for the “40 Years of Fun Photo Contest.”

Operations Manager Katie Anderson had this to say: “Celebrating 40 years in the waterpark and rides business is so special to us because we know our guests made this milestone possible. So, it’s only fitting that we give them a chance to share their memories through this contest.”

Fun-Plex is also touting twilight discount events each week, Monday through Thursday, from daylight to twilight. Themes this year will include “Play Like a Kid Day,” “4 for $40 Thursday,” and more. Also returning are the family-friendly Dive-In Movies and the 21+ event, Sunsets Concert Series at Breakers Bay. Fans can check or the Fun-Plex social media pages for all promotion details. Fun-Plex is also kicking off the first full park season for Rockin’ Rapids–a colorful five-story double-rider, 3,000-gallon tube slide that opened in June of 2018.

Fun-Plex Waterpark & Rides is located on 70th and Q. It is the state’s largest ride and water park, complete with mini golf, go-karts, kiddie and family rides, Rockin’ Rapids, Makana Splash AquaPlay Structure, and a wave pool, lazy river, and Nebraska’s only swim-up bar. Learn more online at
