You found the way to get the most joy out of your spring and summer. Disappear from the 'real world' at Illinois' largest waterpark. The opening date was just announced.

When telling us about being at Illinois' largest water park, the park owner said,

it makes you feel cut off from the outside world

First, we heard that the largest water park in Illinois will open for the season in late May/early June, now we know the exact date.

Summer Fun Planning for Families

My wife and I spent much of this last weekend trying to organize our spring and summer calendars. It is a serious challenge to figure out where to put everything.

Plus, we can't have an entire summer filled with just sports games and tournaments, we need some fun in there.

If your kids are like ours, if it involves water, they're completely down for it.

While looking at some of the places that baseball tournaments will be taking us this summer, we found a place that we can't wait to visit.

Best Places to Have Fun This Summer

We have added the Largest Water Park in Illinois to our list of places we will be enjoying this summer. I'm almost embarrassed that I've lived in Rockford for almost 30 years and I've never heard of this place.

  • 32 water slides
  • 5 huge kiddie areas
  • Giant wave pool
  • Quarter-mile-long lazy river (where you'll find me relaxing)

All of this, and MUCH more, and it's only 80 minutes southeast of Rockford.
