FORT SMITH, Ark. (KFSM) — Officials with Parrot Island Waterpark in the River Valley have announced that they will be adding a new "FlowRider Double" for the 2019 season.

The "FlowRider Double" gives park goers of all ages the opportunity to experience the thrill of surfing.

Powerful pumps push a thin sheet of water, approximately three inches, across a patented trampoline-like ride surface.

This creates an "endless wave" that patrons can bodyboard or surf on.

Site work and installation is set to begin within the next month.

To celebrate the new addition, the water park will kick off a pre-season sale Thursday (March 7) and season passes will be discounted by 10 percent.
