1. Aquatopia: The Large Indoor Water Park
Aquatopia is a large indoor water park with indoor rides and slides on one transparent roof. With approximately 13 water slides along with tube slides, bowl slides, mat slides, capsule slides, and 7 pools, Aquatopia is your dream destination.
Also, upon entering the water park, you can grab a stack of towels that are available there themselves. It’s nice not to have to deal with wet and dirty towels in your luggage as the resort already provides them.
Upon entering the water park, the two major attractions you’ll see are-
1) Flow rider (indoor simulated surfing) and
2) a large wave pool, life jackets are a must and provided for those under 48″.
The major slides are located on floor one plus in the lazy river winds through the section below the slides. In my opinion, the Poconos water park -Aquatopia- has the best themed lazy river in the Poconos mountains.
1.1. Aquatopia Slides
If your children are old enough (and tall enough) to go for Aquatopia’s large slides on their own, you will surely enjoy the setup of the slides. The loungers are available near the slide section, from where you can watch your child ascend the stairs and see which slide they go to.
There are a wide variety of slides, which keep the adults and kids go on and on. Some of the more conventional tube slides are supposed to have the shortest lines. The water coaster probably gets the longest line, and the Venus Slydetrap line looks to be the longest and thus makes a great family time all together.
The Aquatopia water park is home to the longest indoor, uphill water coaster in the Poconos mountains and the country. The mat slides have some cool light features in them. Every slide goes fast. Some water rides, like the Storm Chaser, require riders to be or equal approximately 100 lbs. Riders must be at least 42″ tall to ride, and at least one rider must be 48″. Three to six riders are needed for these water slides, and riders must be over 42″ tall. This may mean your child needs an adult (preferably a tell one) to ride with them.

- Note your child’s barefoot height. They may not hit that height barefoot, even if they are 42″ in a regular amusement park with shoes.

- If it’s a sunny day during the summer, bring sun protection. Remember, the ceiling is glass, so make sure to get your skin protected. There are signs posted around the park reminding guests that getting sun exposure while indoors is possible.
- There are two drop slides at Aquatopia for those seeking a thrill. One slide has a straight-down drop. The other slide has a few ups and downs, which gives you butterflies.
Other amenities in the water park include an indoor/outdoor hot tub, a large play and slide structure, a swim-up bar, and a lazy river. There are three slides at the top of the play structure. For the slides, there’s a particular height requirement, that is, all riders have to be about 48″ tall. Well, for the body slides riders can be about 40″ tall, and when it comes to the bowl slides, riders got to be about 48″ tall.
