Viking Ship Competition

Join us to finish off Viking Day at Murphy Aquatic Park in style! Participate in the ship contest using only cardboard, trash bags, and duct tape. Craft a vessel that can carry one adult person and compete with other boat engineers in our wave pool challenge. The last boat remaining afloat will seize the crown of victory and claim an exciting prize. Valhalla awaits the champion! Are you ready to take on the challenge?
