Impossible feats become possible when you're wearing a pair of water skis, from gliding on water to looking cool in a vest. Turn heads with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $19 for two hours of open riding Monday–Friday (a $39 value)
- $24 for two hours of open riding on any day (a $39 value)
- $59 for a day camp and lunch (a $119.99 value)
Equipped with a board, helmet, and vest rental for the duration of their session, up to six riders at a time ride the water on water skis, wakeboards, or kneeboards towed by overhead cables strung between lakeside towers. Though riders of all experience levels are welcome, all must know how to swim before hitting the lake. See the schedule for open-riding dates and times. Alternatively, one day of day camp (held 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m.) gives Groupon holders a chance to learn the art of wakeboarding or wakeskating. A light lunch of a hot dog, a bag of chips, and a soft drink is included in this option.
As speeding wakeboarders bail from their runs, plunging into the water as the tow cables snap away from their grasp, no boats will ever circle back to pick them up. They're not stranded, however, because at KC Watersports, overhead cables pull riders along the water instead, ushering them toward the rails and ramps peppering the 7.5-acre lake. Families cheer on water-skiers from the beach, grab bites at the snack shack, or fasten water-skis on hot dogs and get them to race. Beginner sessions feature slower cable speeds to acclimate newcomers to the wakes, and the camp's sets of sliders and kickers challenge veterans to pull off new, more impressive stunts than merely back-flipping over a human pyramid. Back on shore, spectators can cheer on athletes from shaded beach or grab bites at the snack shack, and an onsite pro shop stocks rental or retail gear from brands such as Liquid Force, Body Glove, Go Pro, and Master Craft.
