Opening June 14, Zoom Flume Water Park in East Durham cools off customers with attractions like the Riptide Cove wave pool; Wild River; and Grand Prix Splashway, which pits riders against each other in a watery race. New this year: The 700-foot-long dual zipline, the largest water park zipline in the world. More than 80 feet high at some points, the line sends riders soaring through the park in groups of two. Meet Spiderman on July 19, and Calum Worthy — who plays Dez on Disney’s Austin and Ally — on August 2. $26.99; $19.99 for children under 7. Discounted season passes available for a limited time at $49.99. 1-800-888-3586; www.zoomflume.com
