Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Glenwood Springs, CO - Dec 20, 2016 - Hey kids, channel your inner crocodile hunter at Glenwood Hot Springs this New Year’s Eve. The world’s largest hot springs pool is hosting its annual, alcohol-free, last-day-of-the-year, family-friendly pool party on Saturday, Dec. 31, with a schedule of aquatic amusements created exclusively for kids and teens.
From 7 to 11 p.m., the Hot Springs Pool will be hosting all sorts of games, including crocodile wrestling. In the wild crocodiles are some of the worlds’ most feared creatures with 72 razor-sharp teeth. At Glenwood Hot Springs, the reptiles are toothless and inflatable making them safe for even the youngest rookie wrestlers. As participants take their turns, judges will score them on their “croc handling” skills and award prizes to the winners.
So many families attend our New Year’s Eve celebration because it’s one of the few venues that is alcohol-free and equally fun for kids and adults.
