New England water parks & water slides add splash to a family vacation

New England's water parks, splash parks, and water slides make a great day trip or even a half-day stop on a New England family vacation. Water rides, twister rides -- the whole works -- are a fun adventure for adults, parents and kids on a summer trip or getaway in New England.

Once you dry off and relax, think about the next day’s adventures: Mountain coaster rides? Railroad excursion? Zoo visit? Pilgrims and the Mayflower? Explore more family activities.

Lots of dino-centric fun at this park, featuring New England’s largest Splash Pad

Where can you find New England’s largest Splash Pad? At The Dinosaur Place at Nature's Art Village, where even the water park is huge! This zero-depth water playground is safe for all ages, with a separate play area for infants and toddlers. The pad includes over 30 dino-themed features including dueling T-Rex and Velociraptor-headed water cannons, a spitting Stegosaurus to hide from, and a tricky Triceratops loop to navigate. (There are also dumping buckets.) Step on sensors embedded in the ground and watch out for that “flying” Pteranodon: Isn’t it rising from its perch? The Splash Pad has plenty of seating around it as well as changing rooms. Check the website for social distancing and other health and safety updates.
