Top 10 U.S. Waterpark Resorts: The Water Park of America
Capping off our Top 10 list is the impressive Water Park of America, combining with the Radisson Hotel in Bloomington, MN, to create the largest waterpark hotel in the U.S. This waterpark is designed to highlight Minnesota’s unique attractions.
Surfing in Minnesota? That’s right – this waterpark features Minnesota’s only FlowRider Surf Simulator. Take a swim in the Lake Superior wave pool, or sit back on a tube as the lazy river takes you underneath bears and along cliffs. But the biggest gem of the waterpark – literally – is the indoor family raft ride, the longest one in America! This ride is ten-stories-tall and over a mile long. The activity pools are great for a friendly game of water basketball. And for the smaller children, Fort Snelling play area gives them all the interactive water activities they could want. Plus, they’ll love the tipping bucket with 500 gallons of water that empties every two and a half minutes.
Make sure to stop by the Northern Lights Arcade, featuring 5,800 sq. ft. and more than 100 games. Ask about the birthday party packages!
