The Story of Benny the Beaver

A Dam Good Tale

Nestled in the Natural State lies Big Dam Waterpark, a place where adventure and nature blend seamlessly. The park’s name, a playful homage to the state landmark, Big Dam Bridge, reflects both the grandeur and the fun-loving spirit that the park embodies.

The story of Big Dam Waterpark is incomplete without its beloved mascot, Benny the Beaver. Benny isn’t just any beaver; he’s a symbol of both the park’s connection to nature and its commitment to family fun. Legend has it that long ago, when the Big Dam Bridge was just an idea, a family of beavers lived in the serene waters where the park now stands. Among them was a young, spirited beaver named Benny.

Benny was known for his exceptional building skills, creating the most intricate and sturdy dams the river had ever seen. His work didn’t just impress his beaver family; it caught the attention of the humans planning the bridge. As the bridge was built, Benny watched with fascination. He saw how the bridge brought people together, just like his dams united his beaver community.

When the bridge was completed, Benny had an idea. He wanted to create a place where families, just like his, could play, laugh, and make memories together. With determination and a lot of hard work, Benny’s vision came to life in the form of Big Dam Waterpark. The park’s design was inspired by Benny’s intricate dams, with winding water slides that mimicked the water’s flow through a beaver’s creation, and a wave pool that echoed the lively ripples of the river.

Today, Benny the Beaver is more than just a mascot; he’s a reminder of the park’s humble beginnings and its deep roots in the local environment. He symbolizes hard work, creativity, and the joy of bringing people together. Every corner of the park carries a piece of Benny’s spirit and his love for fun and family. As visitors splash, play, and explore the wonders of Big Dam Waterpark, they’re not just enjoying the thrills of a waterpark; they’re becoming a part of Benny’s dream, a dream where nature and fun flow together in perfect harmony.
