WaterWorld in Denver is the perfect place to cool off this summer

 *I was given free tickets for my family, but all opinions are my own!

Last week my family and I were invited to check out WaterWorld and boy did we have fun! This year my husband came with us so the older kids had so much fun. And I was able to watch this little nugget above. WaterWorld has a fantastic kid area so he was happy to play in there the whole time. I did take him on one of the bigger rides where 4 of us rode in a inner tube. But he didn’t have as much fun as the rest of the kids so we camped out in the kids’ area after that.

There were plenty of rides my older two kids could ride with their daddy so they would ride those rides, then come back to the kiddie area to tell us all about it. Also you can bring your own food into the park for picnics or they have yummy food you can buy. I brought lots of snacks and drinks but we bought a pizza while we were there as well.

This little ham couldn’t get enough!

And TODAY is the 19th Annual Belly Flop Contest at Water World. The event will take place, rain or shine and starts at 10am so if you were planning on going today, check this out!

WaterWorld is located just 10 minutes north of Denver so if you are visiting or are a local and haven’t been yet, you should check it out! There are over 50 attractions on 70 acres so there is something for the whole family. 

Also if you are interested, we brought floaties for the kids who could not swim but they were not approved by the park.  So if you go to Customer Service you can ask to borrow some that they provide.

For tickets, opening and closing times and any more information you would need to plan your trip, go here!

Also you know I love a good deal, check out this page of discounts you can score for your visit and this Sunday is Father’s Day and all Father’s get in for FREE! SCORE!
