I have to say I live a pretty great life! My kids have gotten to see some of the best places because of my site and this last trip was no exception. My family is obsessed with indoor water parks in fact we have been to 6 of them in the last few years and they never seem to disappoint but we never get the full package until NOW! This past weekend we were able to spend a fun filled night at CASTAWAY BAYin Sandusky, Ohio and I have to say this place is the FULL PACKAGE!!
From experience most indoor water parks cater to either small children or large children and really no mix of in between. Being a mom of two little girls that are ages 6 and 8 with the 6 year old being very very tiny for her age but with a state of mind of an older child it is hard for her to feel included in things because of her size. Granted even here she was unable to ride on the big slides but she didn't seem to disappointed when she had so much other things to do. That was nice! From the kiddie area to the wave pool there was so much for her to do.
Let me start out by saying that the staff at Castaway Bay was the nicest by far at any water park. The lifeguards were attentive and understanding. The front desk was always available for questions and even the snack bar attendants were super welcoming. You don't normally see this at indoor water parks in fact it is usually the opposite with a lot of teenage angst. The whole vibe of the place was so fun!
Our room was just the right size with all the best amenities. We had a microwave, two queen size beds, a refrigerator and television. The bathroom was equipped with bath and body works shampoo and conditioner which was by far my favorite amenity in fact I went out and bought some for myself. The beds were comfortable too which never happens at a hotel!!
So I am sure you are really interested in knowing what is offered in the water park itself- well let me tell you- loads and loads of fun! The wave pool is by far my FAVORITE attraction. It is fun for EVERYONE! My only recommendation if you are like me and wear glasses to make sure they are off or unable to fall off because my glasses got thrown off my face by one of the waves! Thank goodness my husband found them or it would have been a much different weekend! My children loved the area that I called the obstacle course because it was filled with small slides, water buckets, and stairs and other obstacles. They spent hours just running around and getting drenched by the huge bucket that poured down every 10 minutes or so!
Even my husband had a great time riding the big slides with my oldest daughter. This was just a complete trip for us where little drama was found. No temper tantrums- no kids running unsupervised thanks to the wonderful staff and no injuries. Just an overall perfect time. Even Snoopy and Lucy visited us which made the girls so happy!
