New England’s largest water park features tubing, giant water slides, a huge wave pool and a kiddie lagoon. There are totally crazed, thrill-a-minute rides (one is aptly named the Screamer) for the teens and fountains and waterfalls for the little ones. Life vests are free and required for children between 42 and 48 inches tall who venture onto the wilder rides. Tube rental is not included in the admission, and although they are not absolutely necessary your kids will definitely want them. Although there is plenty for younger children to do, parents of little ones often mention the crowds at the park as a drawback. Teens, on the other hand, adore the place. The park also hosts concerts and shows in the evenings.
