"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
August 30th, 2011
When I feel summer coming I run to find my bathing suits, and then to the store to find a new one! But with the “autumn and winter blues” that can develop in the Mid West and New England is it possible to hang on to that swimsuit rush?! YES IT IS MY FRIEND. But how? The answer: indoor water parks! The cool thing too, is that they’re open all year long, allowing you a great vacation anytime of the year. Check out one of the few indoor water parks in New England: the Cape Codder. In order for an indoor water park to be worth missing the breezy day there must be slides, slides, and more slides. And not surprisingly enough the water parks know this, and capitalize on it.
Castaway Bay in Sandusky, OH has a slide that is set up like a roller coaster called Rendezvous Run. This 520 foot long water roller coaster is 35 feet high inside. With twists, turns, jets of exploding water it’s never a dull moment!
Cape Codder in Hyannis, MA has a 8,200 square foot wave pool as its focus indoors. Everyone can relax and wade until the 2 foot waves explode their heads. The side-by-side water slides are fun to race your family and friends too!
Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, OH has a racing slide for four people to compete with each other called The Cheetah Race. Sliders go down a 55 feet slide with rolls and drops riding on mats, headfirst! The secret to not getting water up the nose is to hold your mat and head up, which is also a hint to be the winner of the race.
Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells, WI features a family-friendly tube slide, where up to four people can ride together, in the same tube. Riders hold on tight as the slide creeps up the sides of the slide splashing everyone in the tube. The more the merrier, and faster the tube flies down the 504 feet long Victoria Falls.
