Cable Parks 2010: 10,000 Wakes

New Germany, Minnesota



How sick would it be to build your house at the local cable park? Well, at 10,000 Wakes, you can do just that. Plant your roots in Trophy Lake Estates‘ gated community and you’ll have full access to the cable park and boat lake. But don’t worry, if you’re not just looking for a Sesitec System 2.0 session, 10,000 Wakes has you covered. The park, which opened in June, features four diverse obstacles — including a two-way kicker — and will stoke out riders from beginner to pro. If you’re looking to try some of the latest Liquid Force gear, you’re in luck — 10,000 Wakes is a Liquid Force test center.
