Water Country in New Hampshire is Having a Belly Flop Contest: You in?
Okay, dads. Here's your chance to make a big splash. Literally!
Water Country in Portsmouth, New Hampshire is hosting their annual Father’s Day Flop on Sunday, June 18 at 1 p.m. This is a water park, so of course you probably know what kind of flop this is. Do you have the gut....I mean...guts to compete?
If you're a dad who has no problem slamming himself into the water like a pro, then you need to enter the Father's Day Flop being held at Water Country's wave pool. Participants are judged by the most floppy belly flop, style, and the biggest splash. Prizes go to first, second, and third place with the first-place winner getting a championship belt.
Anyone at the park can enter, just be prepared to possibly be sore the next morning. I did a belly flop once in my life and it hurt so much I'll never do it again. Clearly, I was no pro but look at this guy taking flight from last year's Father's Day Flop.
If you're a spectator, you'll want to get a good spot in the pool if you can. Be careful though. You might end up in the splash zone depending on how hard these dads hit that water.
Maybe you can convince your own dad to throw down his best belly flop and bring home that sweet championship belt. Just make sure he signs up at Water County before 1 p.m. on Father's Day.
