Very neat cable park place that my husband had fond memories of visiting in the mid 1980's. We went midweek in the winter so my youngest - age 9- could not participate but she had a good time watching people wipe out from the deck above the platform. My other two kids had no problem launching via kneeboard & waterskiis... More

Brought my daughter and friend (ages 15 and 14) to the beginner's class ($50 for 2 hours all equipment included. Make sure you have a waiver signed by parent. If parent doesn't come must have a NOTARIZED waiver from the parent. The girls struggled at first but quickly got the hang of it. Then Jaime showed them in the shop... More

This is in the middle of quiet water park. You can rent everything you need to ski. There are picnic benches nearby so you can watch the skiers do jumps or wipe out! $25 for an hour of skiing which includes everything

We stopped at Rixen after a cruise to the Bahamas. We had both wakeboarded before and were looking for something fun to do. It was raining the day we went, but we had nothing else to do and both the air and water were warm. I would suggest checking Rixen's Facebook page as they noted that the park was booked... More

Direct from Europe to Florida comes one of America's first Cable water ski resorts. The new, fun and affordable water skiing system pulls you silently over glassy smooth water. No boats and no boat hassles. Just have fun! They are not restricted to wakeboarding and water skiing - people of all ages can slalom, trick ski, kneeboard, wake board and... More
