The Village of Ruidoso and the Parks and Recreation Department added a Wibit Water Park at Grindstone Lake! The floating, inflatable platform made up of giant slides, towers, trampolines, ramps, wiggle bridges and other play features, is perfect for family fun, birthday parties and special events.
Officially opening June 19, 2019, the Wibit Water Park at Grindstone Lake is amongst a popular growing trend of active, on-water entertainment and recreational activity at public facilities across the United States.
Daily visitor passes for the Wibit are $20. Lincoln County and Mescalero residents can buy season passes for:
$60 individual swim & Wibit
$90 individual with swim, slide & Wibit
$135 family pass for swim & Wibit*
$210 family pass for swim, slide & Wibit*
*Limited to 5 immediate family members
The price of season passes to the pool remains the same. The Village has included access to the Wibit for residents.
Parking is $5 a day, Wednesday - Sunday from 10 am - 6 pm. There is no parking fee on Monday or Tuesday or before/after the hours of operation for the Wibit. Residents can buy an annual pass for $20.
The revenue generated from the parking fee will support Parks and Recreation operations, programs and activities. In addition, $1 will be set aside for the National Forest Foundation and projects on the Lincoln National Forest and adjacent public lands. Those buying a seasonal pass for use of the park and its amenities also will be able to opt-in for an extra $5 to go to the same effort.
The Ruidoso Wibit is suitable for all ages with passes available for purchase at Grindstone Lake. Group tickets, private events and birthday party packages are also available through the Ruidoso Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Wibit is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday - Sunday. Starting August 16th, it will be open Friday - Sunday through Labor Day.
