We are a waterpark family! We really adore going to waterparks as a family and have been taking our children to indoor water parks since they were babies. We used to spend every single New Year’s Eve at in indoor waterpark for years. There are so many different ways to enjoy going to a waterpark, and not just for a New Year’s celebration or as a family outing.

This past Friday we visited Great Wolf Lodge in the suburbs of Chicago in Gurnee with our friends. We had the most beautiful day as the sun was shining and it was not too terribly steaming hot and it could not have been a more perfect day. With the NEW full day passes, we were all able to enjoy unlimited splashes at the 84-degree indoor water park! In addition, we all had access to over 50 activities that day. The best part is I didn’t have to pack suitcases for everyone and we were all back in own beds by bedtime.
