I've heard so many people mention Splash Lagoon and we were thrilled to have the chance for our first visit this past weekend. WOW! We were blown away by how amazing a venue it is for families! Splash Lagoon is located in Erie, Pa and includes nine water slides, pools, hot tubs, a 12-level interactive Tree House, a Tree Tops Ropes Course, 6,500 square foot Arcade with over 100 games, a state-of-the-art Lazer Tag facility, an Aqua Tumbler and Wild Waters Wave Pool. We were looking for a fun fall/winter family getaway and this was perfect!
As a person who HATES cold water, I think I was most excited to learn that all that of the water temps were a balmy 84 degrees. :) But even better, my kids just had the very, very best time!
This zero depth entry pool with small slides is perfect for babies and toddlers!
My 3, 4, & 6 year old could all ride this slide by themselves and they did it dozens of times, at least!
The turquoise slide was probably their favorite of all. We could ride down together in a double tube and it was so much fun!
Be sure to bring another adult with you so you can swap turns in the adult only hot tub. :) There are also some family hot tubs which have a little lower temps.
The arcade games have a separate pricing scale. But how fun is this giant Connect Four game?! (Laser Tag and the Ropes Course are also a separate admission fee.)
We stayed in the Residence Inn by Marriott, which is one of 3 hotels directly connected to Splash Lagoon. We couldn't have been happier with a wonderful 2 bedroom suite (a bit of a necessity with 4 kids!) that also boasted a complete kitchen and 2 full bathrooms with huge jacuzzi tubs.
This sitting room with a fireplace was a perfect connecting space! The sofa is also a pull-out bed for additional sleeping options.
We get to watch TV before bedtime AND eat caramel apples in bed? Winning all the parent points right there. (wink, wink.)
The hotel had a great complimentary hot breakfast with options for everyone! Eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee.....
And, of course, you can't leave Erie without a stop at the beautiful Presque Isle State Park! Even though it wasn't swimming weather, it was a beautiful day and my kids loved running and digging at the beach.
Splash Lagoon has been kind enough to giveaway a family 4 pack of tickets to their indoor waterpark! (Please note: this does not include hotel accommodations.) You can choose to book a hotel if you wish, or it also an easy day trip from Pittsburgh.
