Add some excitement to your family summer vacation and surprise the kids with a trip to a waterpark! As the temps rise, there are few things more fun than spending the day tromping through splash pads and whooshing down waterslides. There are many great waterparks to choose from throughout the U.S. Here are five to get you started.
Enchanted Forest Water Safari (Old Forge, NY)
Enchanted Forest, New York’s largest and most famous waterpark, is actually located in the scenic Adirondack State Park. With over fifty rides and slides to choose from, there is no shortage of activities for water fans of all ages. Daredevils will love the Killermanjaro, a steep waterslide that takes riders on a heart-pumping 30mph trip to the bottom. Those looking for a relaxing time can float through the park on the Safari River Expedition.
Legoland Florida (Winter Haven, FL)
A unique waterpark, Legoland Florida provides guests with the unique opportunity to design and build a LEGO raft and float their way down a slow-moving river. Of course, there are rides for those looking to get a bit wetter, too, like a double waterslide and a wave pool (among other attractions). When the kids get hungry, head over to the Beach-n-Brick Grill.
Dollywood Splash Country (Pigeon Forge, TN)
Dollywood Splash Country has activities for all ages (and varying levels of comfort in the water). Thrill-seekers will love the Mountain Scream body slide or the fantastic RiverRush water coaster. Younger kids will flock to the Cascades and Little Creek Falls, both interactive playgrounds with plenty to keep them busy.
Cliff's Amusement Park WaterMania! (Albuquerque, NM)
Families with young kids will appreciate the L’il Squirts area of WaterMania!, which is geared toward toddlers and their parents. Older kids will love Mega Water Monkeys, a larger, faster water ride that will keep them coming back for more!
Kalahari Resort (Wisconsin Dells, WI)
A Midwestern favorite, Kalahari Resort has earned quite the national reputation. With two waterparks to choose from (indoor and outdoor), a wave pool, raft rides, waterslides (of course), you’ll need to stay for at least a couple of days to take it all in. Good thing the Kalahari Resort’s lodging is comfortable and family-friendly.
