If you are still at home planning on where you will have your next summer splash, you better stop dragging your feet. There are a lot of options for you to get some water and sun. Here are some good options in and around Chicago.
- Raging Waves: It’s impossible to talk about swimming and sun without talking about Illinois’ Largest Waterpark. Yes, the tickets are a bit pricey, but there are a lot of ways for you to get discounts! First, you can buy tickets at Costco. It will be around $40 for a ticket good for 2 persons. Second, you can search in Groupon for discounts or promotions. Finally, and the best option of all, is to donate a book bag or school bag to Grizzly Jack and get a $10 discount. Pretty good, huh?
- Grizzly Jacks Grand Bear Resort: The whole family will really have loads of fun in this cozy resort. Not only do they have the best staff, the decor and the facilities are also top notch. They spared no expense in building this one. Your overnight stay will give you free use of the water park featuring a lazy river, giant slide and wave pool. There is also a jacuzzi for those who wish to relax. Aside from free admission to the water park, you will also get vouchers or tickets to go on their zip line or go bungee jumping, wall climbing, etc.
Barefoot Bay Aquatic Center: If you are on a budget this summer, a good option is to visit this water park which is part of the Mundelein Park District. Entrance is only $7 to $9 per person and it is well worth it. This water park features a really relaxing lazy river. Their tubes are abundant, so there will surely be one for you and the whole family. Safety comes first, of course and they also have a lot of life vests for your little ones.
