Water Parks in New England

Add some 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.

Catch a wave of excitement at this water park, with thrilling rides, slides and pools

Are you a fan of the big splash, or a relaxing float in a pool? At Funtown Splashtown’s water park, you’ll have a great time either way. Race down a 45-foot slide head first on a mat, or grab a raft and a few friends and zip down the Mammoth Thrill Slide. Real thrill-seekers go for Poseidon’s Plunge, where the floor drops out of the bottom of a 60-foot slide, or an all-black tube slide where you’re totally in the dark. There’s a wading pool for the little ones and, in Pirates Paradise Aquaplane, eight water slides (and the pirate dumps 500 gallons of water every two minutes). Private cabanas can be rented in advance. The Splashtown park’s alter-ego, Funtown, has rides and games. A family owned and operated business, Funtown Splashtown puts guest safety first. Please review our health safety guidelines prior to your visit.

No one goes away unhappy (or totally dry!) at this family-favorite water park

It’s easy to see why the Whale’s Tail Waterpark is New England’s favorite water adventure park: There is something to get everyone excited.

And everyone can unwind tubing down the lazy river of Jonah’s Escape or soaking in the 85-foot heated pool and giant hot tubs at Castaway Cove.

Water park provides some tropical thrills, from twisty slides to gentle splash pads

It may be called Santa’s Village, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some tropical fun happening at this popular activity park. Interactive water play in the Polar Paradise includes multiple spray zones and small slides. The thrilling JOY Ride Slides feature three unique, twisty-turny slides, each three stories high, that speed you into a quiet run-out. There’s a splash pad for preschoolers with gentle fountains of water. And in the Ho Ho H20 attraction, there are splashes, slides, climbs – and a giant bucket that spills gallons of water every few minutes. Rent a cabana for up to six people or Santa’s super cabana for up to 12 and relax in between the water fun. Dine in a restaurant overlooking the park.

Splash it up in dino-style at this water attraction with 30 fun features, from buckets to slides

If there were such a thing as a Splashasaurus, he’d fit right in at The Dinosaur Place at Nature’s Art Village, with New England’s largest Splash Pad among its many attractions. The zero-depth water playground is safe for all ages, with a separate area for infants and toddlers. In all, there are over 30 dino-themed features including dumping buckets, dueling T-rex and Velociraptor water cannons, a dino rib cage waterfall and a flying Pteranodon who rises from its perch when you step on certain sensors in the ground. Hide from a spitting Stegosaurus or tiptoe through a Triceratops loop. The Splash Pad has plenty of seating all around as well as changing rooms. (Please bring footwear to the Splash Pad.)
