As a kid growing up in rainy Washington, there was nothing I looked forward to more than road tripping down to Utah with my family to visit Seven Peaks. I loved that park so much that I’d dream about it the rest of the year. Cave In, Free Fall, the Canyon River. All of it.

I was devastated when I moved to Provo as an adult and saw the park in disrepair. With squelchy and moldy astro-turf, concerning safety issues, and an insane Pass of All Passes crowd, my last trip to Seven Peaks was so disappointing I never went back. The park shut down in 2018.

In 2020, amidst the gloom of the global pandemic, it was announced that Splash Summit, LLC had purchased Seven Peaks and was planning to rebrand and reopen the resort. The 8-year-old in me was THRILLED. The adult version of me, really stressed out by current events, was also excited, but skeptical. Years later, I’m pleased to report that my inner child has not been disappointed in the least.

New ownership has made significant improvements to the park. The largest waterpark in Utah, it has more than 15 waterslides, a 500,000 gallon Wave Pool, swimming areas and slides for children, group pavilions and cabanas, a giant half pipe tube ride, 100-foot free fall drop-slides, and a quarter-mile lazy river. Splash Summit has addressed safety concerns, added LED screens, better tubes, theme elements to some of the attractions, and significantly improved food and beverage options.

“We’re excited to play a part of this historic change in Provo!” The company says. “Splash Summit Waterpark is committed to reinvesting in the park and creating a safe and fun environment for Utah families.  The new identity builds upon the history of the park while also opening doors to the future. We strive to value and support our customers, employees and partners.”

Splash Summit is showing their love to the Provo music community by offering $15 off season passes for Provo Music Magazine readers who use the promo code MUSIC at checkout. Provo Music Magazine is also offering 3 free season passes through an Instagram giveaway (more details here).
