Who Remembers Cottles Place Waterpark In Waterville?

I was reminiscing a little bit yesterday.  Now, I didn't grow up in Maine.  My dad was in the Army and we were stationed in Germany for most of my childhood.  But, there were a few years when I flew to Maine and spent the summertime with my grandparents.  I remember my grandfather taking me to a waterpark in Waterville.
