water slides in New England

If you are wanting to stop by one of the most popular water parks in Massachusetts (or southern New Hampshire this season), then check out this list below! This is a list of the top places you will want to add to your travels this summer! No matter which park you pick, I am sure you and your family will have lots of fun!

Enjoy inflatable rides, lazy rivers, wave pools, and amusement rides and more. This is a great way to find fun things to do near you, or plan a trip for you and your family. Beat the summer heat this year at one of these fun water parks or amusement parks listed below. Make this summer filled with fun memories.

Water Parks in Massachusetts

Water Wizz (Wareham, MA): Southern New England’s largest water park! Mussel Beach is a huge wave pool that is very popular. If you like to live on the edge try the Squid Row, it’s a tube ride, with high speeds. Or if you want to go with little kids, they do have a family pool area as well. Thrilling slides, tubes and cabanas to relax in, this water park has something for everyone.

Nelson Park Splash Pad (Plymouth, MA): Located inside Nelson Memorial Park on Nelson Street in Plymouth, this is a popular place for kids to cool off in the summer. In addition to a free splash pad, there is a playground, beach area and plenty of room for a picnic lunch here. Parking is free, but I highly recommend getting there early because the lot fills up fast. For a day full of free fun, stop by the Nelson Park Splash Pad this summer.

Breezy Picnic Grounds (Douglas, MA): This is family owned, and great for a relaxing and fun day. You can pack your lunch or take advantage of their snack bar. they have three, 300′ waterslides for you to enjoy. They have really nice picnic grounds, with large tables by the water! You can also swim in the lake and it offers a sandy area for kids.

Pool Float waterpark in New England

Cape Cod Inflatable Park (West Yarmouth, MA): The name says it all, they are an inflatable park. They have a ton of huge blow up slides – some are dry and some have water.  They have plenty of inflatable rides for adults and children, so it is fun for the whole family. There are two ticket prices, one for dry only inflatables and the other one includes both wet ones and dry inflatables. That way you can pick what is best for your own family.

CoCo Key Water Resort (Danvers, MA): This is an indoor water resort, where everyday is 84 degrees. If you happen to have a cold dreary day out, you can head here and enjoy perfect weather! From water slides to cabanas, they do have it all! they have some slides for the thrill-seekers! They have over 48″ tall raft slides! They have tubes you ride on, that take you on twist and turns and are perfect for those who like to slide fast. Coral Reef Canyon, is geared towards older kids, where it has fun obstacle courses! They can do basketball and just have room to play on their own.

Hurricane Harbor, Six Flags New England (Agawam, MA): From water slides to the lazy river, there is something for everyone at Hurricane Harbor. Seriously, there are too many rides for me to list them all here, but you can have a look at all the water fun at Hurricane Harbor for yourself by visiting their website. Admission to Hurricane Harbor is included in park admission, so be sure to bring a change of clothes and enjoy the amusement rides while you are there.

Cape Codder Resort Water Park (Hyannis, MA): Enjoy a gentle ride down the lazy river, or check out their spray deck. This indoor water park is a lot of fun. It offers a wave pool, multiple slides, a 24-person whirlpool, and so much more. There are tons of things for the whole family to enjoy.

Water Country (Portsmouth, NH): Water Country has 26 acres of kid attractions and rides. They also have dining options if you want to stay for the day, and can have meals. One of the popular rides is the Double Geronimo slide! It is a twin speed slide that is 58 foot high! You will fly down it super fast, and great for a thrill. Or go on Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror, this is a 2 person tube that descents into a twisting 40 foot plunge. It is totally enclosed, dark tunnel, so it gets you wondering what is coming next. This is a 300 foot ride sure to leave your heart pumping a little faster. They offer kid attractions and have places to just lounge and soak up the sun, or soak in the water.

Frog Pond Spray Pool (Boston, MA): In the summertime the Frog Pond features a 30 foot spray plume and a wading pool for the kiddos! It is open daily from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm from early July through Labor Day. While you’re there, you can take a break from splashing about for a turn on the carousel ($3 per ride). The Frog Pond is located on the Boston Common, off the Park Street stop on the Red or Green line.

Great Wolf Lodge (Fitchburg, MA): Lots of fun rides and activities for kids. You can splish and splash in the water, go down slides and more. They have a ride, Wolf Tail, where the floor drops out from beneath you and you free-fall for 25 feet! You do have to stay at the Great Wolf Lodge hotel, to be able to use the water park.

Those are some of the awesome places you can plan a day of fun, if you are in the area! From inside activities to outside adventures!
