Kids in Niagara 

A perfect winter escape

Water and more water! The waterfalls are of course the stars here! But there is no swimming in and around them, unless you are a daredevil ready to put your life at risk by jumping into the water while confined in a barrel, or crossing over a tightrope that stretches over them…

Kids being kids, won’t spend long contemplating the falls. They need to move and to have fun more than ever during spring break, the holiday week… in winter.

The solution is more than an alternative - it is a not-to-be-missed experience: Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, which remains at 29 degrees Celsius.

A deep breath

This is a requirement, considering the bewildering array of aquatic frenzy found in this action-packed water paradise!

Slides, 16 of them, of all shapes, in which you can compete with others in a giant water centrifuge alley, a one-meter wave pool that you gradually enter from the beach before grabbing onto a tube to ride the rush, etc.

Some fresh air?

Head outside to an outdoor pool for a water basket game or just lounge in the sun on the heated sundeck!

Those who are 16 years and older can enjoy the hot tubs.

Dry… or almost

A form of aerial adventure can even be experienced with stairs and rope ladders… in a rain fortress, where a thousand gallon tipping bucket is always ready to soak everyone below it.

To rest for a moment, a beach with lounge chairs and palm trees awaits.

Have the munchies?

A light snack at Planet Hollywood Beach Club is in order.

Security wise

As in many other attraction parks, some activities are restricted in terms of age and height. Most activities are suitable for children ages 6 and up.

Smaller kids also have their own area with mini slides, soakers, water streams and water guns, etc.

As little or as much as you want

A one-day pas, two-day passes or even more days are available in this water paradise.

A birthday? Great idea!

For only $30 per person, a birthday will be made memorable for all guests, with an all day waterpark admission, including a hamburger, hot dog or pizza, soft drinks, cake and even a gift.

If you add $10 per person, access to the Adventure City activities and to the Wild Safari nearby is included in the package.

Where to stay?

It is really worth taking advantage of a hotel package. Many categories of establishments are offered with direct connections to the park through an indoor corridor. How great it is to go from the room to the pool in the depth of winter with no winter coat on!

The three hotels with direct indoor connections are the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, the Crowne Plaza and the Skyline. A forth, and more affordable one, the Victoria Inn, is just a few steps away.

It is likely that parents will get back in touch with their own child-like energy.
