Water slides are like active volcanoes—both melt away T-shirts, propel fluids down super-steep slopes, and have a lot of screaming nubile women thrown down them. Leisurely lounge or ride the slides with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one weekday pass to CoCo Key Water Resort (up to a $19 value) in Waterbury.
With a temperature of 84 degrees every day, CoCo Key Water Resort creates an enclosed tropical atmosphere for year-round amphibious amusement. Fifty thousand square feet of indoor attractions guarantee families are sure to find something to suit every swimsuit, from the multilevel play island of Parrot's Perch and the Coconut Grove adventure river for younger swimmers, to three 40-foot watery plunges for longer limbed thrill-seekers. With its balmy climate control, swimmers can spite the weather and enjoy a tropical paradise that's far more relaxing than trying to cram a palm tree and a tube slide into their shower. Inside the adjacent Key Quest arcade, air hockey, skee-ball, and a wealth of video games return pruned fingers to their natural consistency.
CoCo Key Water Resort
Regardless of the weather outside, CoCo Key Water Resort simulates an 84-degree Key West day. As licensed lifeguards keep watch over the indoor water park, guests race down three 40-foot body and raft rides, drift along the adventure river, or join peers in the activity pool to play water basketball or embark on a lily-pad adventure. After toweling off, visitors can try their hand at the arcade's more than 55 games, which include Need for Speed, skee-ball, and Hoop Fever, where players sink free throws while their mothers check their foreheads. CoCo Key Snack Shack and Pizza Hut Express vend tasty snacks to all, while the Wet Rooster Bar and Palm Grotto Spa cater to adult patrons.
