One nice thing about visiting Branson, Missouri is that you don’t have to worry about the weather spoiling your trip. The “Nashville of the Midwest” has more than enough indoor attractions to fill your vacation days – most notably, the comedy and country music shows that have made the town famous. But if you’re looking to further weatherproof your vacation, you can go one step further and stay at a hotel with an indoor water park.
Goofing off at a water park is perfect way to round out your trip to Branson, especially if you have young children along. The great thing is that you can book a room at the attached hotel, so if it’s rainy or cold outside, you never have to leave the building. Here are two hotels with indoor water parks in Branson, Missouri that you might want to consider the next time you come to visit.
Grand Country Inn
Far more than just a hotel, the Grand Country Inn features dining, games, and entertainment. Oh, and of course, there’s the Splash Country Waterpark, which is free to use for all of its guests. On cold or rainy days, visitors can still catch some summer fun with the indoor portion of the park, which is an ample 20,000 square feet. It includes attractions like tube slides, a kiddie playground, lazy river, and hot tubs. During the summer, the outdoor portion of Splash Country opens up as well, doubling the total size of the water park. Overall, this hotel is a smart choice for those who want the complete Branson experience in one spot. Not only does the resort have plenty for you to do, but it’s close by a lot of other attractions in town.
Castle Rock Resort and Waterpark
Castle Rock Resort features the largest indoor water park in town. At 30,000 square feet, it houses a lot of classic water park attractions under one roof – including a lazy river, tube slide, body slide, and of course, kiddie area. The attached hotel contains 200 rooms, but if you like, you can purchase day passes to the water park separately. That means you can stay wherever you like, and visit the water park when the urge hits you. If you do stay at the Castle Rock, you’ll be within walking distance of the Titanic Museum, the famous Acrobats of China, and other attractions.
While not among the largest or best water parks in America, the Grand Country Inn and Castle Rock Resort are ideal places to stay for those visiting Branson with young children. The indoor water parks give kids a chance to use up some energy while the adults relax (or join in the fun). It’s a perfect way to complement an evening of shopping, sightseeing, and country music shows.
