Water parks are fun and if you are looking for a great way to spend you summer vacation, don’t worry, summer isn’t over yet – You can still have fun in the sun without breaking the bank. Whether you live in the north, or south, you’ll be sure to love these water parks this summer.
Now, most people are well aware of California’s fantastic summer sun and amazing whether year round however, what you may not have known is there is a truly magnificent amusement park in Los Angeles. While many of you know the name, I still believe many people are unaware of the thrill and fun and the whole family can have at any Six Flags amusement park. Which brings me to my first recommendation for your summer vacation – Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.
At Hurricane Harbor, you’ll be sure to find something for all ages and thrill seekers. While your kids can have fun with those “kiddie rides,” you’ll be falling from the sky when you jump on those big scary ones. One of my favorite would have to be the Tiki Falls; which pushes you through a 385 foot pitch black tunnel.
With the impact Disney has on the world, there is no wonder why they opened their very own water parks, yes plural, in Florida. The first, “Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park”, which is filled with dining, and a few attractions. While you’re paying a more premium price, you are also getting a premium water park experience.
But like I said, they have two different themed water parks and while the first is themed to be more for adults, the whole family will have a blast when they head on over to, “Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon”. Here at this water park, you can float the lazy river, hang out with your kids at “Ketchakiddee Creek”, or take a nice relaxing trip down the “Crush ‘n’ Gusher”. Whatever the age group, everyone is sure to have a blast at the happiest place on earth.
Say, doesn’t it get pretty cold in the northeastern parts of the United States? Well, that doesn’t stop them from having fun. Located in west Berlin, NJ, is “Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor Water Park.” Themed for fun, this water park is open year round, has indoor surfing simulation, lazy rivers and slides, of course. And if you’re feeling a bit water parked out, you can always take a trip to their large arcade while the parents relaxing with refreshing adult beverages.
Next up, something a little bigger, Texas’ own “Schlitterbahn” water park. With over 40 attractions to choose from, the whole family is sure to have a great time here and with that Texas heat, you’re surely gonna be in need of some sunblock while you relax at the “Beach Wave Pool” or as you’re flying down the “Raging River Tube Chute”. If you live in
the Texas area or have the time, I highly recommend checking this place out for yourself.
Lastly, The largest Water park in the United States, “Noah’s Ark”. This water park is located in the heart of the state of Wisconsin and boasts to be the largest in the US. Sitting on 70 Acres of land, there are two, full-sized, wave pools, and even a ten story, 400 ft long, more than 50-ft per second water slide called, “Scorpions Tail,” which is sure to give the best thrill seekers a run for their pants.
