It gets hot in Osoyoos so…

We were there at the end of May 2021, and it was already a warm day in Osoyoos. 

It can get very hot in that little city, so make sure you have sun protection and stay hydrated.

So, does it get hot in Osoyoos?  Oh yeah, it gets hot there.  You’ll even find amazing cacti in Osoyoos growing naturally.

Yes it can get hot in Osoyoos BC – flowering cactus






With that out of the way, let’s get into the fun stuff…  

7 super Fun Things to do at Rattlesnake Canyon Osoyoos BC 


1)  Go Karts

Rattlesnake Canyon has gas-powered go karts that you drive on a fun and winding course with lots of switchbacks and tight turns.

They have some double-seat go karts so you can bring your child on with you. (The driver must be 16 years old.)

To drive on your own go kart you need to be at least 12 years old and be at least 54-inches tall.


Will you be able to lap your friends?






2) Bumper Boats

If you need a way to cool off at Rattlesnake Canyon, go on the bumper boats.

We got absolutely drenched…it was awesome!

If they have the waterfalls on, spraying near the back wall, you won’t just get a little wet… you’ll get soaked. My daughters kept bumping me and nudging me under the rush of water.

If the waterfalls are on I suggest taking off your shoes and don’t bring your phone or wallet on the boats. (They do have lockers at the park. We didn’t use them so I’m sorry I can’t tell you how much they are.)

I had so much fun bumping against my kids and friends that my face hurt from smiling.






3) Mini Golf

Entrance to mini golf course – “Adventure Golf”

Rattlesnake Canyon has an 18 hole mini golf course that is adorned with fantastic Western-themed decorations. In fact, all the décor and buildings in Rattlesnake Canyon are well done.

My family didn’t do the mini golf course but I saw lots of smiles on the mini golfers putting the greens.

Next time we head to Osoyoos mini golf will be on the list of things to do so I can get you some better photos.






4) Bungee Tree

You strap into the harness and bungee upward while leaping for the sky.

Just look how high the kid in the photo soared. So cool.

The maximum weight for this ride is 225 pounds (as stated on Rattlesnake Canyon’s website).







5) Kiddies Helicopter Ride

My pre-school aged daughter and her friend loved this classic amusement park ride.

The little helicopters spin around a center pivot and rise up and down.

Lots of smiles on this ride.







6) Tornado Amusement Ride

Here is another classic amusement park ride. I was curious to see what my youngest daughter would think of it but…

Unfortunately it was closed when we visited at the end of May 2021.

Hopefully it will be open when you visit the park. (If you want to know before you go, you can call the park at 250-495-3544 )





7) Relax with an Ice Cream from the Giant Windmill

One of the most eye-catching buildings in Osoyoos is the huge windmill in Rattlesnake Canyon.

This is where you can go get one of 48 flavors of ice cream to help you cool off on a hot day.

I really don’t know why they make so many flavors when Mint Chocolate Chip is really all you need. 🙂
