8 of the Most Incredible Indoor Water Parks

By Erin Gifford

Timber Ridge Lodge & Water Park

Just two hours north of Chicago, Moose Mountain Falls at Timber Ridge Lodge & Water Park in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is the place to go for 50,000 square feet of pools, slides, tubes and a lazy river. A new slide, Avalanche Falls, engages all the senses thanks to colored lights and energetic playlists that let riders rock out to their favorite tunes as they slide. When you’re ready to dry off, head to Crazy Coyotes Arcade for dozens of arcade games or enjoy daily activities, like family movies and arts and crafts.

Wilderness Resort

Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, the self-proclaimed “Water Park Capital of the World,” may not be able to claim the largest indoor water park in the country, but it is the largest water park resort. The resort’s four indoor water parks make up over 250,000 square feet of wet and wild fun, and that doesn’t even include the four outdoor water parks at Wilderness Resort. Inside, ride the waves at the country’s largest indoor wave pool at Wild WaterDome or try the Midwest’s only slideboarding ride at Klondike Kavern.

Epic Waters Indoor Water Park

The brand new Epic Waters Indoor Water Park in Grand Prairie, Texas boasts 80,000 square feet of splash-worthy fun thanks to 11 water slides, like the Texas Twist and Yellowjacket Drop, as well as Lasso Loop, the tallest indoor Aqualoop ride in the country. A lazy river, mat racer slides and a water playground with geysers, sprinklers and a 300-gallon tipping bucket add to the fun. As a bonus, the water park has a retractable roof so you can enjoy the sunshine from inside the park on especially nice days.

Adventures: Back in the Swing

By David Zivan

Jack Nicklaus. Arnold Palmer. Lee Trevino. Perhaps you’ve heard of them? What you may not have known is that each of those legendary swingers designed courses at Lake Geneva. A longtime destination for Chicagoans seeking respite from city life, the area offers many pleasures, but none surpass the variety of its golf options – 11 courses in all. There’s The Brute, for instance: a 7,000-yard, par-72 danger zone area at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, where rates start at $79 and a hole-in-one challenge touts a $10,000 prize. Or, along Geneva National, enjoy stunning overlooks of Lake Como – but, as ever, we recommend you keep your head down. visitlakegeneva.com
