Remember Adventure River?

If you're a Memphian of a certain age, it's likely you spent many a summer day sitting on the fake beach or braving the Geronimo slide at the water park.

If you don't quite remember it, Adventure River was located off of I-40 near Whitten Road and opened every Memorial Day through Labor Day from 1985 until 1998. Memphians of all ages flocked to its had water slides, a lazy river and a (slightly terrifying) wave pool.

Here's an Adventure River commercial from the late 80s: 

Local designer Josh Horton is honoring Memphis' bygone summer fun place with these super cool, retro-style Adventure River t-shirts.
