Water Country takes summer vibes from chill to thrill!
Summer is the season when families look forward to spending plenty of quality time together. With no school for the kids and a well-earned break from work for yourself, summer is the season for a vacation. Water fun under the summer sun is the perfect experience for children of all ages—adults! For babies and toddlers, shallow waters can provide a fine place to practice getting their feet wet. Young children who know how to swim, meanwhile, take to the pools and bodies of water like playful otters. Once kids see firsthand just how much fun swimming can be, you’ll be hard-pressed to pull them back out onto dry land! Older children and teens, meanwhile, appreciate the way water provides a place for them to drift away (literally) into their own world for a while.
Regardless of what age your children may be, Water Country is home to splashing summer fun, with slides and plenty of places to chill and bring a smile to every family member’s face.
Reason #1: It’s full of attractions and swimming pools for the whole family
At Water Country, we have options for swimmers of all ages and skill levels, ensuring that every member of your family has a place.
For your youngest: Bubble Bay
For toddlers who may have never seen a pool before, let alone an entire Water Country, they might have to start small. So, hold their hands and guide them to the safe, splashing shores of Bubble Bay -- a special play area designed with them in mind! Adjacent to the Giant Wave Pool, even your youngest will love the spraying geysers and bubbling water. It’s the perfect way to cool off and have fun. Plus, with your youngest ones under 48” tall required to wear a life jacket, you know that they’re safe.
For your young adventurers: Pirate ship or treehouse?
Now, for kids who don’t just want to spend time in a summer wave pool all day and are eager for adventure, you’re in luck! Here at Water Country, we have two splashing good expeditions your kids of swimming age and up can enjoy with their newfound water confidence. Pirate’s Pool and Lagoon, is perfect for any kids who have ever dreamed of hopping aboard to captain their very own ship. Here they can take turns commanding our very own vessel, battling with water cannons and walking the plank on many different water slides! Also, there’s a convenient lounging area all around the lagoon, so you can make sure your young pirates aren’t getting into too much trouble!
Meanwhile, for kids who prefer a more tropical getaway, the Tahiti Treehouse offers their own little slice of paradise! With plenty of slides and other water attractions to play on, it’s all the excitement of the pirate ship but with a casual island feel. Although, be warned, there is one thrill at the treehouse that outdoes even the craziest antics any young pirates can cook up! If you’re looking for the very biggest SPLASH you’ll find in all of Water Country, look no further than the giant tipping bucket. Dumping gallons of water down in an epic cascade, it’s one of the best places to cool off with kids this summer in New Hampshire!
For your oldest kids and teens: A Tunnel of Terror!
If you’re the lucky parent of a stubborn and pouting teen needing some thrills alongside your family’s summer chill—or if they need their own getaway—don't fret! Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror is a thrill-ride waterslide; one that members of your family over 48” tall will love. Sliding into pitch-darkness with a partner, they’ll conquer a twisting 40-foot plunge, a wicked tornado funnel, and 300 feet of darkness.
And one for the whole family!
Last but not least, every great park has at least one wave pool to its name, and Water Country is no exception! Our Giant Wave Pool is one of the best places for every single member of your family to come and have a splashing good time together. With 700,000 gallons of water, it’s New England’s largest wave pool and a chance to enjoy all the thrills of the beach and the pool in one! Whether riding the waves with a scream or just drifting and relaxing in a tube, this is the ultimate mix of thrill and chill.
Reason #2: It’s perfect to relax and enjoy summer vibes
For an additional fee that ensures you’ll be able to kick back and relax from sunrise to sunset, we offer dozens of cabana options. For families from two to over 20, we have a cabana or picnic area for you to beat the heat and the crowds! From the Wave Pool to the Pirate’s Pool, you’ll have a perfect view of just what all your kids are up to while you chill.
Meanwhile, if you need some help keeping your cabana of stocked, or just need to get a few yummy treats, we’ve got you covered! With almost a dozen different dining and snack options, you’re sure to find something to please every member of your family. For an all-American menu featuring classic crowd-pleasers like burgers and hot dogs and specialties like Surf Side Fries, there’s Coastal Grill and Island Eats. If your kids need some more adventure to go with their pirate and treehouse tropical getaways, there’s Adventure Pizzeria and Adventure Popcorn. Afterwards, or whenever you need to sweeten up your relaxing day a bit, the delicious California Churros at Riverside Treats can’t be beat!
Reason #3: It’s a happy environment with events, celebrations, and special occasions
One more reason why Water Country is one of the best places to cool off with kids this summer in New Hampshire is the events it offers. Water Country hosts plenty of events for kids in New England each summer, and an all new lineup is planned to be announced very soon! In the meantime, though, any summer day can be made into a special day for kids thanks to our Birthday packages covering everything from set-up to clean-up. Whether hosting a party of eight or 18, with options covering up to 25 guests, you’ll get all-day admission and a comfy cabana to enjoy. Plus, with an extra bonus of an announcement over the PA system and one free ticket to visit again, your kids can rule the pool!
So, the next time you’re wondering if there are any swimming pools open near you, don’t look for a water puddle – look for a Water Country! With slides and attractions for every member of the family from toddlers to teens, we’re so much more than your local family swimming pool. From Bubble Bay to New Hampshire’s best summer waves pool, you can mix thrills and relaxation to find the perfect fit for every family member.
