Breakers Water Park’s 1.3 million gallon wave pool helps park visitors a place to relax and cool off during the hot summer months.

A few days from now, in a water park not far away… Join the 501st Legion, Dune Sea Garrison, and Rebel Legion on Saturday August 2nd at Breakers Water Park to help fight Childhood Cancer. 

Its an intense period. Ultraviolet electromagnetic photons are bombarding earth from a nearby star. The only hope for the inhabitants of the nearby desert planet is to retreat to a cool and refreshing environment for the day. For one day, and one day only, you and the entire family can cool down, save $6 on adult admission, and help a good cause while meeting your favorite characters from Star Wars!

Bring in a non-plush toy to Breakers Water Park on Saturday, August 2nd to benefit “Candlelighters – Childhood Cancer Foundation” and save $6 off your adult admission. Plus make a donation and snap a picture with Lucasfilm’s preferred costuming group.  

“Breakers is proud to USE THE FORCE to fight childhood cancer,” says Steve Miklosi, General Manager of Breaks Water Park. “Take tons of pictures, eat great food and have fun with the entire family when we invite the 501st Legion, Dune Sea Garrison, and Rebel Legion out to Breakers to help this worthwhile cause.” 

Trade in the sun for some fun and meet some of your favorite Imperial Star Wars characters when the 501st Legion and the Dune Sea Garrison take over Breakers Water Park. Or fight back against the Imperial scum with the noble Rebel Legion. Don’t miss your chance to be seen with Lucasfilm’s preferred costuming group.  

We are in the midst of the hottest days of summer and it’s time to cool off. Take a dip in Southern Arizona’s largest wave pool, lazily float the day away on an inner tube while the kids run wild at Captain Kidd’s Surfari while taking advantage of this very special opportunity. This is an exciting event with great savings that you won’t want to miss!
