  1. We LOVE the Wilderness, have been going there for almost 8 years now and I NEVER knew this. Thanks for sharing, makes me love the place even more now!

  2. Yep, we love the Wilderness! We also witnessed some “live” lifeguard training. They had someone to fake that they were floating facedown in the lazy river. The guards had to signal for help and then rescue the person it the water.

  3. That’s impressive and good to know. Just knowing this will make me choose the Wilderness over other water parks when my children are old enough to start going to those types of places. So did you find out what happens if the lifeguards aren’t paying attention and fail the test?
