Here’s a moonlit view of Skinners Wet N’ Wild, taken just a couple of days before demolition began on the Lockport, Manitoba structure. Here’s a commercial for the place during much happier times.
A couple of the more interesting structures on Henderson Highway between Winnipeg and Lockport.
It’s only a matter of time before the old water slides at Skinner’s get torn down (frankly, I’m amazed it hasn’t happened already). It’s a real shame what’s become of this place; I had lots of fun summer days here back in the 80s. Of course, there’s still the Skinner’s restaurant, “home of the world famous hot dog,” so all is not lost.
