Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Fallsview Waterpark in Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls)

Family Tested

I can smell it!

Very cool option in the summer! Next best thing to going South in the winter. 

As soon as they smelled a hint of chlorine, my four companions ran wildly through the glassed skypass leading to Fallsview Waterpark and instantly split into two age-related teams. It took me 20 minutes to find them in order to put their wristbands on. The place is quite a sight! Tropical climate, palm trees, blue dome simulating the sky and, down below, tons of kids screaming with delight. This impressive water park includes 16 slides, some fit for the younger crowd hanging around the Beach House section with the 1,000 gallon tipping bucket (a good meeting place). The yellow slide was unanimously declared the scariest by my young inspectors. Later in the afternoon, we took our ice cream to the mezzanine to lay on the lounge chairs while taking in the overall view of the action.

Fallsview Waterpark comes with an outdoor heated all-season pool with basketball nets of varying heights. You could just pay the admission cost to the water park but it would be almost as expensive as taking one of their hotel-waterpark packages (the attraction was created for the hotel's customers). Totally worth it! (Note that the Skyline Hotel and Clifton Victoria Inn at the Falls usually offer the cheapest deals. And the packages are cheaper on Sundays and early weekdays. Prices can vary as much as $100 depending on the date!)
