Water parks in Germany are super popular
Not surprisingly, water parks and water parks in Germany have become so popular. When we browse the Internet, it is clear from various articles that parents are extremely happy with the trip to one of the cool water parks.
Last, it was a mother who had been a mother for 9 years. She had some challenges in finding good vacation areas where she could really be with her children without having to compromise on her own needs.
She wrote: “I went to a water park for the first time last week – at least it was my first time as a mother. I’m not quite sure how that might be possible, but that’s true. I had more fun than I’ve had in a long time, much more than I expected, just the fact that I was getting close to my kids and playing with them was absolutely amazing.
Water parks force you (and your children) to unplug. I’ve only had an iPhone for half a year, but I admit it stays close all the time. We spent just over two hours at Coconut Cove Water Park (my smallest was hungry for lunch), and I honestly loved leaving my phone in the car and being free from email, Facebook and various other apps, including games my kids play. It was a great way to connect with my kids in the water by leaving the electronics behind.
Badlands are not only found in Germany
There are water parks in pretty much everywhere. You don’t have to go to a big, far away water park, like Adventure Island (Tampa, FL) or Water Country USA (Williamsburg, VA) to have a crazy, wet experience with your kids. At Coconut Cove, which was local to my in-laws in Boca Raton, FL, there was only one lazy river, two large water slides and a large waterway area with fountains and tunnels and we could have had fun all day.
times to go to your local park for the best experience. We went to Coconut Cover Water Park on a Friday when several day camps were there, but to be honest it was still quite entertaining.
Which water park or water park in Germany is your favorite?
Are you a big fan of water parks? I’d love to hear if you have any more tips and tricks for having fun and keeping you cool as a family at water parks.
Personally, I prefer to invite the family there, where it is a water park hotel – or at least a place to spend the night. This is not the case here, whether it is in Northern Germany, Southern Germany or right in the middle.
However, I have earned a love for Tropical Island as well as a whole new place for me that I have not mentioned in this top 10; Ostsee Damp Resort.
