It's a sure sign summer is right around the corner.

On Saturday, Darien Lake, western new york's largest theme park, will kick off its 53rd season in Genesee County.

And, it won't be the same-old, same-old for season pass holders this year.

Park officials have updated the laser show, there will be four free in-park concerts and get ready for the new Ripcurl Racer.   The water ride towers above the ground at 42-feet.  But, you'll have to wait a little longer to take a test run. Darien Lake's water park is set to open on Saturday, May 21st.
