This weekend 1,000 free Castaway Cove tickets were given away to Sheppard military and civilian personnel. The waterpark wanted to honor the men and women who serve our nation by offering the free admission. The City of Wichita Falls also offered up free rides via the Fallsride Bus Transportation, taking personnel to and from the base and the waterpark.
Ed Michel with Castaway Cove expects a large turnout from the base to enjoy the cool water.
"We're having a great turnout. We offered 1,000 free tickets and they were all gone by Wednesday night! So we know a lot of them are going to be here this weekend."
