TERREBONNE, QC, July 16, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - As the peak of the summer
vacation approaches, Quebec's water parks are recording spectacular
increases in the number of visitors, due in part to the optimal weather
conditions we have enjoyed since the beginning of the season.
"It is a remarkable start to the season compared to last year;
everything is in place for a fantastic summer," according to

indication that vacationers will be cooling off in great numbers in the
various water parks' attractions. The large variety of facilities
enables people of all ages to have fun with family or friends or in
"With extended periods of nice weather, the number of visitors is evenly
spread out over the days of the week, thereby avoiding congestion, to
the great joy of park users," states Réjean-Julien Proulx.

much when planning summer activities. In Quebec, when the media call
for a thunderstorm, it often ends up being a nice day. When we do have
thundershowers, they are often intermittent and occur in the evening.
So we shouldn't allow the weather to prevent us from fully taking
advantage of our nice summer days!
Several new attractions in the parks are also contributing to their
growing popularity. Nearly 10 million dollars was invested this year in
the various parks. Visit their respective websites for further
information about these new attractions.
Quebec's water parks attract approximately 1.7 million visitors every
year and offer over 240 installations for users' pleasure. Moreover,
they employ over 500 lifeguards to ensure everyone's safety in the
