So what do you do today while the kids are out of school?
How about Ray’s Splash Planet, North Carolina’s largest indoor waterpark? I have not been there yet, but I have heard it is a ton a fun and great for rainy or cold days when playing outside isn’t an option. Ray’s includes a one-of- kind water park and offers countless ways to get soaked and have fun in 117,000 gallons of water. It is owned and operated by Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, and there is a discount on admission and memberships for residents of the county.
Here are some of the attractions:
-The Blue Comet: 3-story giant slide shaped in the form of a double figure-8.
-The Orbiter: Orbit around the Blue Comet on a tube and relax.
-Saturation Station: Features four slides, interactive water play and a tumble bucket.
-The Vortex: A quick current pool that pushes a person in a circle.
-Meteor Showers: Brightly colored buckets that fill with water and then spill over.
-Sun Drops: These squirters are placed around the pool basin.
-Moon Beach: State-of-the-art gradual beach-like entry pool – great for little ones.
-Sea of Tranquility: Two lap-lanes for lap swimming and/or water basketball and water volleyball.
Here is a list of things you should know before your visit to Ray’s Splash Planet:
