The Faribault Family Aquatic Center had a Water Dump Bucket custom made for their facility.  Because it was custom built for Faribault it is believed to be the only one of it's kind on the planet.

It's hard to believe but the Faribault facility has been open since 2002.  Like many water parks and pools the aquatic center was not open due to COVID last summer.

There are plenty of amenities at the facility as highlighted on their page on the City of Faribault website.

  • Two Large Flume Slides
  • Drop Slide
  • One-meter Diving Board
  • Climbing walls
  • Zero-depth Entry
  • Lily Pad Walk

  • Interactive Water Features
  • Water Basketball and Volleyball
  • Sand Pit Play Area
  • Concession Stand
  • Family Changing Rooms
  • Aquaglide Inflatables
  • Kids' Splash Table
  • Dump Bucket

Kids must be 48 inches or taller to ride the water slides.

In addition to the Dump Bucket the Kids' Splash Table has been a huge hit for younger kids.
