Fun-Plex has announced plans to begin the largest expansion project in its history — a $5 million development focused on its waterpark. The extensive project kicks off with the addition of Makana Splash, a 40-foot-tall water playground that will be completed before the park re-opens Memorial Day weekend.

Fun-Plex, the largest outdoor ride and waterpark in Nebraska, will roll out its expansion over the next several years, with construction of Makana Splash already underway. Initial plans for the next several years also include adding a six-lane “mat racer” water slide and another tower with three twisting tube slides. Added deck space and private cabanas for rental also will open for the 2015 season, increasing the park’s capacity by at least 500 patrons.

Fun-Plex offers family fun in the middle of Omaha with 16 acres of water and rides, Nebraska’s only roller coaster ride, go-karts and five concession areas. Guests who want to get a jump-start planning their summer fun can purchase discounted holiday gift passes, including 40% off of season passes and daily admissions. It’s not too early for corporations and small businesses to book now for their 2015 company outings as dates are filling up fast for summer 2015.
