Splash with the Grandkids at a Waterpark, in Williamsburg! Water Country USA for the whole family!

Leave a comment

Hot summer days and busy grandchildren are a great reason to take them to Water Country USA and splash into summer fun!

You may not want to brave the new Colossal Curl (riders ride rafts, from a  height of 552 feet, through a funnel!), but there is nothing new about heading for the water when the heat is on and summer heat makes us simmer.  Water Country USA is a man-made water-play invention and allows us to cool off in the dead of summer. You can splash and soak, when the heat is on. Dive into the wave pool. Slide down a slide. Or simply watch the toddlers play in one of the play areas. Water Country USA is a part of the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Theme Park family, so there is plenty of expertise behind every attraction.

If your grandchildren are younger – stick to the Kidsiderate” attractions:
  • Kritter Korral — an animal-themed play area, complete with fountains, slides, and splash zones
  • H2O UFO — has fire hoses, tubes, waterfalls and fountains for water play
  • Cowabunga — has a raft ride suitable for littles and a boat to climb on as well as a couple of slides
If you and the older kids need more of an adrenaline rush, check out the “splashtacular” Colossal Curl through a series of loops and funnels that is the length of two football fields. Riders board clover-shaped rafts and are swirled through a funnel feature to a wave element that lifts them high above the park. Or grab a life jacket and float around the Hubba Hubba Highway. If the Hubba Hubba Highway moves too quickly, grab an inner tube and float on the lazy river in Rock and Roll Island, to your heart’s content. The 700-foot Rambling River travels at a slow pace perfect for lounging.

If your grandchildren are teens, there is plenty of excitement for them. Visit this link for a description of each one – but with 10 slide attractions, 3 kid’s areas and 2 rivers to float on – and don’t forget that fun, fun Wave Pool, you’ll have a full-packed day. And you’ll be the hero.
If the day you visit is a super-busy holiday, consider upgrading your experience with the Quick Queue option.
Classes are also available:
  • Red Cross babysitting
  • Red Cross junior life-guarding certification
