Looking for a family-friendly place to stay while on vacation? Need a refreshing getaway that’s not far from home? Tired of reading dumb questions and want to begin your search for hotels with indoor water parks? Then you’ve come to the right place. Let us be your guide to some of the best family friendly vacation spots in the United States.
Once upon a time, indoor water park facilities were a rarity. However, these days you can find them all over the map. In fact, you can plan your whole vacation around hitting various hotels around the country that have attached water parks. Or if you’re just looking for a weekend break – particularly during the colder months of the year – you can probably find an indoor park within driving distance. Let us help you out…
All the Attractions of Outdoor Water Parks
Indoor parks are not only becoming more widespread, but more expansive as well. Oh, there are still plenty of hotels that have their pools equipped with a simple slide and kiddie playground. But there are also an increasing number of indoor parks with all the trappings of their outdoor counterparts. Here are some of the features we’ve spotted at various parks around the country:
- Multi-Story Slides
- River Raft Rides
- Full Day Spas
- Bumper Boats
- Surfing Simulators
- Wave Pools
- Sun Domes
Of course, even we haven’t seen everything. There are doubtless many, many more attractions to be found at indoor parks – and there are more of them springing up every day. As the popularity of indoor parks continues to explode, you can bet this trend will continue.
Weatherproofing Your Vacation
Perhaps the best feature of all is that a trip to an indoor park can’t be ruined by inclement weather. That’s the whole point for people in Minnesota, Michigan, and other northern states, who travel to these hotels seeking a break from long, cold winters. But it’s also an advantage for summer vacationers. After all, mother nature offers no guarantee at any time of year.
If you’re planning a vacation, staying at hotels that have indoor water attractions offers a solid insurance policy. Even if rain puts a damper on your sightseeing plans, you and your family can always enjoy splashing around inside. Of course, you should prepare for the possibility that you may enjoy the indoor park so much that you won’t even want to venture outside!
The Price of Admission
Tickets to any water park – indoor or outdoor – can be quite pricey, especially for a family of three or more. Most hotels with water parks have packages that include both the room and admission to the park. Getting this bundle often works out to be a great deal in comparison to other options.
A trip to an indoor park is also cheap when compared to a full family vacation. You don’t have to travel far (in most cases), and your lodgings and entertainment are included in one price. Overall, you’re much more likely to stay on budget when you’re not hopping around to different places.
