1. Deep River Waterpark

Deep River Waterpark in Crown Point will have you splashing around with joy. The park is the perfect place for a weekend of fun with the family, and you’ll find everything from tube rides through to adventurous slides. There are great children’s swimming pools, including a wave pool (in case you’re missing the natural feeling of the ocean), and you can also kick back on an 800-foot lazy river after a long day of fun. For thrill-seekers, head to The Dragon, which is a “free-fall” speed slide where some people reach a speed of up to 35 miles-per-hour; the Double Dueling Cannon Bowl Ride, a dueling bowl tube rides; or The Storm, which is a slide starting from a five-storey high platform; or the Kraken which is an exhilarating set of slides. As with most outdoor waterparks, Deep River Waterpark is an open seasonally, so be sure to check dates.
