Top Five Water Parks to Check Out This Summer

Water parks used to be nothing more than fancy swimming pools with a slide and maybe even a water cannon. Nowadays, you can take a plunging nose-dive down a spiraling chute and get drenched as you splash into a pool of pounding tidal waves! If getting soaked sounds like a good way to cool off on a hot day, then grab your swimsuit and waterproof sunscreen and follow Kidzworld to the coolest H2O playgrounds in North America.

5. Water Parks - Raging Waters (San Dimas, CA)

Get ready to scream your lungs out on the Dropout, one of the tallest vertical drops in the US. The thrilling, seven-story ride hurls you down in just four seconds! California's largest water park even has a sandy beach for peeps who want to frolic on the sand and soak up the sun.

4. Water Parks - Water Country USA (Williamsburg, VA)

Experience a blast from the past at this '50s and '60s surf-themed water park - your 'rents will totally get a kick out of it! Raft down the twisting, turning tunnel of Big Daddy Falls, or chill out at Cow-A-Bunga, a water playland featuring gushing fountains and waterfalls.

3. Water Parks - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon (Lake Buena Vista, FL)

Welcome to tropical paradise, where a wild storm and giant waves stranded a ship on top of a mountain peak. Get a taste of the Caribbean while snorkeling with real live sharks and tropical fish in the Shark Reef, or hang ten at Ketchakiddee Creek, where pint-sized peeps can play in pint-sized pools.

2. Water Parks - Water World (Denver, CO)

Travel back in time to the land of the dinosaurs or compete against other kids in a friendly game of target shooting with water cannons. And get ready for heart-stopping, mind-boggling fun on the Speedslides, the highest water slides in the world!

1. Water Parks - Disney's Blizzard Beach (Kissimmee, FL)

Legend has it that a freak winter storm created Florida's first ski resort. When temperatures soared and the snow melted, ski hills turned into waterslides and chair lifts carried swimmers instead of skiers. Now, you can splash down watery slopes of the snow-capped Mt. Gushmore and surf the Toboggan Racer at this rapidly melting ski resort!

Now that you have the 411, pick your fave water park, slather on the sunscreen and have a splashtacular good time!

More than anything. She's amazing and so gorgeous. I liked her before the movie, though. I liked her when she played in The Secret Life of The American Teenager. Plus she's going to be in the movie 'The Fault In Our Stars'.

But you have the United States Government to thank for that and the law it created.Because that is why our users are suffering. Because of the law that is in place. We wish it didn't have to be that way, trust me. It is awful see words blocked that shouldn't.But we follow the law and always will. Thanks for not locking this thread. It's appreciated.  Nice underline on the word "actual".  I've tried being positive and friendly and have given suggestions this way.  Doesn't work.  I just get ignored and deleted.  Being negative seems to work better so that's what I've been doing.  Oh, and calling me an attention seeker is a smart way to get out of answering my complaints about the P&R section.
