The New Girl Takes on Water Parks

Auntie Rain

With the dog days of summer upon us, and the thermostat rising, travel contributor Elaine Labalme has a family friendly suggestion for beating the heat and getting out of town all in one go: water parks. It’s not just the classic lazy river amusement anymore, either. More complex water park rides are now as fast paced and exciting as those in traditional theme parks. As Lebalme puts it, “If you’re a roller coaster person, you’re gonna have a blast in one of these water parks.” From nearby Laurel Highlands to Texas, there are great waterpark options across the country:

Idlewild and Soak Zone

Kalahari Water Park 

Great Wolf Lodge

Typhoon Lagoon
