Miami water-sports parks holds grand opening

Aktion Parks’ newest boat and cable park, the Miami Watersports Complex, celebrated its grand opening last weekend.

Aktion Parks’ newest boat and cable park, the Miami Watersports Complex, celebrated its grand opening last weekend and marked the first stop of the 2015 Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown competition.

Visitors from around the world came to the celebration, including 84-year-old Bruno Rixen, the inventor of the cable system, who traveled from Germany and skied for the crowd. There also were dignitaries from the water-ski and wakeboard industry and Miami-Dade County.

“I could not be more thrilled with MWC. Our team worked very hard and the end result is one of the world’s premier boat and cable parks,” Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “Throughout the weekend we had guests from around the globe join us at the grand opening and the comments were incredibly positive. It was a fun time for all.”

The new complex is at Amelia Earhart Park in northwest Miami at 401 E. 65th St. and is on a 90-acre freshwater lake equipped with two full-size cables and one two-tower cable.

The park also offers boat lessons behind the Super Air Nautique G23 and it is open year-round.
