North Clackamas Aquatic Park's indoor hydro-haven breaks albino winter skin from its sweater prison, brightening the chilly Northwest solstice with unhinged summertime fun. The aquatic playground of Big Surf! launches swimmers into a tubular twist of water slides and a maritime maze of swimming sanctuaries, including a six-lane competition lap pool, hot tub (ages 18+), 13-foot deep-diving well, and wave pool. Altitudinal landlubbers, meanwhile, can scale the rough-and-tumble terrain of Steel Mountain—a 29-foot rock wall with three routes of varying vertical difficulty—and build the necessary upper-body strength for tree climbing and thievery of pterodactyl eggs.

At North Clackamas Aquatic Park's there is something fun for the entire family. Zip down twisty tube slides and splash around in three large swimming pools housed within this 400,000 gallon indoor water park. During Big Surf! recreational hours, divers plunge into 13-foot-deep water as swimmers on rental tubes crest the 4-foot surf in the state-of-the-art wave pool. Competitive swimmers can hone their skills in the 25-yard, six-lane lap pool before unwinding in the hot tub. A drop slide sends adventurous aquanauts plunging, as climbers head the other direction on a 29-foot rock wall with three routes for scalers of all skill levels. Pint-size splashers flit about interactive fountain and coast down the Sammie the Seal slide into a kiddie pool until chaperones acquiesce to snack demands at the Surf's Up Cafe. Swimming lessons, inflatable tube rentals, and complimentary life jackets are also available to help guests swim safely.
