Anyone that has ever been in a water park knows why both adults and kids can’t get enough of them. If you are a kid, a waterpark feels like a revelation, much better than hanging out on the beach, or anywhere else. If you are an adult, it feels like getting back in time and connecting with your inner child.
In any case, water parks are special. However, not all are as good as advertised or as expected. That is why we have made a list to help you distinguish the best waterparks from the mediocre ones. The list is based on reviews from websites like Yelp and TripAdvisor.
