I'll be doing a bit of travelling this summer through the midwest with family and friends, stopping to visit others along the way. The adults in our group promised the kids that we would visit a waterpark somewhere between Wisconsin and Ohio. We'll be driving along I-90 east until Chicago, then I-80.
Not to sound curmudgeonly, but I don't care for amusement parks or typical tourist attractions. I hate crowds, overpriced t-shirt hawkers, and waiting in line (yes, I know
...we are going to a waterpark after all). I'd like to find someplace that's not too crazy, appeals to all ages (including slighty surly teens
), and doesn't focus on thrill-rides.
I looked into Wisconsin Dells, but I get the sense that it's packed with people in the summer. The hotels that have their own guest-only parks sound great, except for the prices
Can anyone recommend a park that they visited and liked?
