“The fun of knee boarding, water skiing or wake boarding without the hassle of using a boat!”

Ski Rixen - Deerfield Beach
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

If you want to water ski with ease, go to The Ski Rixen at Quiet Waters Park.
In search of a simple and fun day, we decided to try out The Rixen.
The minimum age is twelve. For the younger ones, there is an adjacent playground, skate park and plenty of room for running and biking. The park has some shade, plenty of places to sit and bathrooms close by. This facility is clean. In addition to your towel, be sure to pack plenty of water, sunscreen and food. Your own chair is optional. You might consider a hat if you're just watching.
We paid $30.00 for 2 hours per person.
Equipment and saftey gear were included. Honestly, it was money well spent for not having to go through the hassle of having to use our boat. Best of all, the kids had a blast!
Be sure to go early, if you want to avoid waiting in line for the cable.
If you have a large group, call prior to your visit and ask about the party package.
On a side note: If you have a mix of big and little kids. During the summer, Quiet Waters Park has a water park for the little guys.
Have fun & be sure not to leave personal items in your parked car!

the whole family can do it. my son goes almost every weekend. He absolutely loves it. they give you a video to watch before you wakeboard so you know what to expect. You can go as a beginner like my daughter and start on your knees. The line goes pretty fast and its not a super busy place like some amusement parks because there are not that many people who know about it. If you are under 18 you need to sign in your kid if you want to drop them off. Parking is right there and they have bathrooms. Bring your own lunch. there is a few shopping centers right down the street on the corner of Hillsboro. Two hours is plenty but some kids love to stay all day. If you fall down you have to walk all the way back from where you fell. Not super far but still it stinks to have to walk back. They are all pretty nice and helpful. They also sell equipment. Highly recommend for fun.,even if its raining.

Whoa! I hadn't been wakeboarding in years! Ski Rixen is EPIC! Took a while to get the hang of the turns (the cable above you slows down. Make sure you turn your body and board, because it will yank you towards the next straightaway!). I thought it was a great value for $30. We were more than tired after two hours! You can also rent skis and kneeboards. DO IT!
