Schlitterbahn Water Park is the ultimate water park in Kansas City, featuring the only uphill water park in the area. If you want to relax on your summer vacation, sunbathe at one of the beaches, take a seat under a giant umbrella, or relax on the shore and let the cool water wash over you.
When you’re feeling parched, visit Henry’s Hideout, a swim-up bar with in-pool seating areas. When you’re ready to explore the park, grab a tube and float down one of the many rivers. Take a river that undulates slowly, or pick a rockier ride that simulates ocean waves. Either choice will take you around the park so you can see all of your ride options. Visit the Storm Blaster, an uphill coaster that is propelled by jets of water, or take a slide or chute for a water-thrill.
If you have kids, they’ll love the water playgrounds scattered throughout the park. Often, slides and chutes won’t have a height requirement, so kids can experience the best of the park. Be sure to take them to the Pirate Ship, a water playground where kids climb the riggings and explore a marooned pirate ship.
With two nights of lodging and admission to Schlitterbahn Water Park, you’ll have a great, fun-filled weekend in Kansas City.
