Tips from the Inside

August 11, 2010

I have two little boys so we visit Water Country USA many times during the summer. Small children don’t like to wait long lines, so we always have a plan for our day.

The first rides to open, that are convienently located close to the entrance, are Jet Scream and Malibu Pipeline. We start off our day with these rides then quickly head to Big Daddy Falls and Aquazoid. Ride lines get long pretty quick at the family attractions so do those first. Also, something to keep in mind, Rampage and Wild Thang are two great rides that are often missed, so even in the middle of the day the lines are shorter. After we ride a few big slides we visit the children’s areas so the boys can just play.

My favorite place to hang out at the park is Hubba Hubba Highway. The boys love it and we just float around, there is no wait and you can stay in as long as you want.

When it comes time for lunch, I love to eat at Launch Pad because the subs are so good. However if you just want to snack on something small and keep going, check out Traveler’s Treats. My top pick is the shrimp cart. It smells amazing and tastes even better.

The most important tip I can give you is to remember to stay hydrated and drink lots of water. The summer has been a scorcher and simply playing in the water will not keep you hydrated. Cups of water are free at all fountain drink locations, so don’t hesitate to ask. Your safety comes first.

Also, remember that sunscreen wears off so reapply often. We wouldn’t want sunburn to ruin your day of fun. And if you own them, bring water shoes. They may not look “cool” but they’ll keep your feet comfortable with all that walking. It’s a big park, so you’ll want to protect your feet.

I hope these tips will help you plan a fun and safe trip to our park. I’d love to hear some of your suggestions of tips for the park. The more we know, the more fun we can have.

See you soon at Water Country USA.
