A waterpark is so much fun for all the family and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get through everything you want to do.

A return visit is always a great idea, but with a bit of planning before you go, you can make the most of your waterpark visit first time around.

All-year round fun

Indoor waterparks are growing rapidly in popularity and it’s easy to see why, with fund and thrills for all the family on offer and because it is has all the amenities on offer inside, there is no chance that any bad weather is going to spoil your day.

When it comes to having the best possible family day out, you don’t have to worry about the weather, all it takes is a little planning and packing to have the best indoor water park experience possible.

Timing is everything

Take the same approach to your visit as you would if you were visiting any theme park, try to avoid the crowd and try to choose a time for your vacation, perhaps when a lot of the schools are still in session if that is possible.

If you want to avoid the biggest crowds then consider going when it is not the spring break, Thanksgiving or Christmas, but if you do want to go at these times or have no choice, then try to be savvy about the timing for when you arrive and leave.

Try to get into the waterpark when it first opens and if you can take lunch later than normal, you will get through more attractions during this quite period, also consider staying until closing time, as the last hour is when people start to drift away and you can pack a lot of fun into a relatively short space of time.

Bring your own towel

Although many waterparks do provide towels, not only will they probably not be as comfortable as the beach towels you have at home, you can save on some queuing time by being to just pay and head to the first attraction when you arrive at the waterpark.

Don’t forget the sun cream

Although you may be visiting an indoor waterpark, check with the venue to see if they have any outdoor areas or use a retractable roof in the summer, which means that you could be exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun without adequate skin protection if you do not pack the sun cream.

Meeting point

It is a good idea to agree on a meeting point at the waterpark for a number of reasons. If you are going with a group of friends or just your family, it makes sense to arrange where to meet and at a certain time if you are splitting up to go on different activities.

You will save a lot of wasted time by knowing where to catch up with each other and if you do get split up unintentionally, you have a pre-arranged meeting point, which will help to reduce the stress levels.

Put a bit of planning and thought into your waterpark visit and you will have a fantastic family day out.
