Water parks combine the watery spectacle of a controlled demolition of a dam with the family-friendly fun of a controlled demolition of a dam. Let the good times come in waves with this Groupon.
$14 for Weekday Water-Park Visit ($28.99 Value)
This offer is redeemable Monday–Friday only. The pass grants access to a number of aquatic attractions, including slides, raft-ready rivers, and pools. Guests can also watch the new Sea Lion Splash, a live show featuring rescued and rehabilitated sea lions. The whiskered mammals cavort and perform tricks while their human handlers teach the audience about conservation.
Raging Waves Waterpark
At Raging Waves Waterpark, Illinois' largest water park, certified lifeguards keep a vigilant watch over visitors as they traverse a park filled with 20 water slides and other aquatic attractions, but surveillance isn’t their only job. They secure up to four passengers in tubes before they zoom down a giant family slide and instruct riders on how to position their arms during their plunge down a winding speed slide with a near-vertical drop. Though adrenaline is the Raging Waves' main focus, it also houses slower-paced attractions for the entire family such as a wave pool, a quarter-mile lazy river, and two separate children's play areas.
