Looking for a weekend excursion this summer? KGUN 9's "Trip on a Tank" shows you the best places, exhibits, museums and natural areas to take the family on just one tank of gas. This week, April Madison checks out Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Phoenix.

Only a short two hour drive away, Hurricane Harbor is the largest water park in Arizona. Heather Austin, Director of Hurricane Harbor, says “With 30 attractions on 35 acres, we really have something for every age. From adults to teenagers, to even the really little kids have a great time when they're here at the park.”

And if you like the thrill rides, there are plenty to go around. Austin boasts, "Two that are nationally ranked, one Anaconda has more twists and turns than any other slide in Arizona. And then we've got Bahama Blaster. It's a water rollercoaster. It shoots you up, you jet down, you can race your friend, it is awesome.” Hurricane Harbor also boasts plenty of non-thrill-seeking rides, like splashpads, a wave pool, and a lazy river.

You can get Hurricane Harbor park passes online with promo-code TUCSON, or at the park with your Tucson I.D. And if you get the membership, you not only get into the water park, but you can also visit any Six Flags property for the entire year, including magic mountain.
