All kids out of the pool!

Yes, the rumors are true.
“You can absolutely bring a bucket of beer with you right into the lazy river. Just float along and have a drink,” said Sarah Farrell, director of marketing at Montage Mountain, with a laugh.
This is just one (though it seems to be the most popular) of the perks of the Adult Swim Nights that Montage Mountain Meltdown Water Park holds. The next one is scheduled for Aug. 8, followed by the final two on Aug. 15 and 22, all from 6-10 p.m.
Adult Swim Nights are 21 and over events that allow an older crowd to take advantage of all the park has to offer, from the high-flying zip rider to the thrilling Iceberg Alley Luge.
“People are looking for something fun and different to do for a night out in the summer,” Farrell said. “We get parents who bring their kids up during the day and want a night to relax, we get members of local businesses stopping by after work for a happy hour type event. We’ve been able to reach a whole new crowd of people with this.”
An admission price of $10 gets attendees in and includes complimentary food, such as pizza and burritos. Drink specials run throughout the night (that ever-enticing bucket of beer can be bought for $8, containing six eight-ounce cans of Coors Light), and this week both Jumpin’ Jeff Walker from 98.5 KRZ and EJ the DJ will provide music at both ends of the park.
At 9 p.m. this Thursday, Montage will be shutting the lights off in the wave pool and handing out glow sticks for a glow stick photo shoot.
There are also plenty of games to play to keep you entertained, involving hula hoops, balloons, and even life-sized beer pong.
The Aug. 15 edition of Adult Swim Night will be the Peach Festival version, featuring Rusted Root playing right in the park.
There is also complimentary admission for all Montage Mountain employees with provided identification.
