Adventure Highlight: Wonderland Waterpark at ACE Adventure Resort
If you are looking for a fun way to stay cool check out Wonderland Waterpark with 5 acres of fun on a spring-fed lake. This attraction is just a short drive from Fayetteville. Waterslides. Ziplines. Turn the kids loose, and let them run wild. Climb giant inflatable mountains, and jump into the lake. Splashdown from the tower on our lake zip line, or launch your friends into the water on the infamous BLOB feature. When you’re done racing down our 200’ twin water slides and jumping on trampolines, kick back on the beach with a slice of wood-fired pizza to watch the sunset. There is even a splash pad. Tickets must be purchased in advance with a daily limit. Water park guest temperatures will be checked and must be below 100.4 degrees to enter the waterpark as instructed by West Virginia state regulations.

Updated Restaurant & Retail List
We love our little slice of almost heaven and our community is what makes this place so special. Over the coming weeks and months, our favorite restaurants, shops, places to stay and places to play in our beloved town are going to see a decline in visitors. Our little town is dependent on tourism so we are especially going to take a hit. Our small businesses need us now more than ever. #Fayettevillewvstrong is a movement to support our town and community.
You can help in lots of ways: ordering food to go, shopping online, tipping well, buy a gift card, leave a positive review, or just spread the word about your favorite small business and the #fayettevillewvstrong campaign. We are an outdoorsy close-knit town and we will be utilizing our strengths. You will see more businesses utilizing outdoor spaces. Please be patient with us as we navigate new changes and try to keep each other safe.
