Castaway Cove Ends Its 2014 Season

As the 2014 season ends at Castaway Cove, Steven Vaughn, the water park's manager and the rest of the staff prepare for 2015.

"It's been a pretty good season, we've had a pretty good turnout of people coming out and enjoying family time," said Vaughn.

Castaway Cove currently has two slide complexes, but within the next three weeks, construction will begin on a new slide called the Aqua Loop.

"The slide is a very big part of what we're looking forward to next year.  We have a couple other surprises in the works that we may try to work on, but right now, the slide is the biggest," said Vaughn.

Texoma's ongoing drought has actually cost the water park extra money this season.

"It has cost the park some extra money by having to bring water in everyday to fill the pool up because we're going by the same rules that everybody else does here in town," said Vaughn.

What the drought didn't dry up was fun.

“I went on all of the slides and the rides and I had fun with my friend," said Castaway Cove attendee, Jaden Tate.

“We're having a great time.  It's a beautiful day out.  It's a little chilly, but that just feels good in the sun and everything," said Joshua Mallett.

Sunday was a beautiful day to end Castaway Cove's 2014 season.

“It's kind of sad, but we are looking forward and can't wait for the 2015 season to start," said Vaughn.

Newschannel 6 did ask Vaughn if the revenue at the water park increased or decreased from 2013 to 2014 and he said those numbers won't be released until October.
