Where is this place located at?
Old    Jeff Hill (hillbilly)      Join Date: Aug 2002       10-30-2013, 2:41 PM Reply   
Right off of I-5....You would take the 3rd Woodland exit coming from Sacramento.
If your heading Northbound on the freeway you can look down onto the park.

I've been passing this place for months. Kinda thought it was a weird place for a fancy pond. Then today I noticed all the towers and it hit me. I was surprised it will be so close to the only other park in NorCal. It really is coming along nicely though. Looks like all the towers are up and there appears to also be two separate lakes one bigger than the other.

The small lake will be 2 2.0's I believe.....and a full clockwise cable in the big lake.
It looks like there is someone working 7 days a week......lol

Looks like Velocity will be the park for riders and Wake Island will be the park for families.

Unit rails at Velocity will be awesome!

Does anyone have some updates for Velocity? The website has no new activity and the facebook page has been dead since December when they had gift certificates available.

Be nice to know when they plan on opening, normal prices and yearly passes along with what features they will have.

It is crazy that the two parks will be so close. Competition is healthy for the consumer, but I wish they were spaced further apart.
Old    Jeff Hill (hillbilly)      Join Date: Aug 2002       01-21-2014, 2:57 PM Reply   
I know the towers are up and it looks like they are doing finishing work or wiring maybe over by the dock area.
I will get excited when I see water in them......Then it will be close.

Jarrod you can always do one on a Sat then the other on a Sun.....lol
Or even do both in 1 day. They are only about 30 minutes apart.

Since we dont have any rain it looks like cable might be busy in Nor Cal next summer!!!!!!

If they can get the water to fill the cable lakes !

I wish they were further apart as well, but I'm hoping Velocity and Wake Island can both stay open. From what I've read Velocity will have two 2.0s and as a wakeskater im hoping they keep one set up with the wakeskate friendly rails/boxes. I remember at one point there was a rumor of a stair set/drop going in for one of the 2.0s.

/\/\/\/\ kind of frustrating to get a coupon to a park that isn't even open yet.

I've had the chance to visit the park on a couple of occasions. The family that owns the park and is doing the construction is awesome. You get the feeling that they love people and love wakeboarding. They are working really hard to get it open in the next two weeks. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
