Slidewaters Lake Chelan Waterpark
It's pitch black inside the tube Purple Haze at Slidewaters Lake Chelan Waterpark. The enclosed tube takes riders through 400 feet of darkness, where they twist and turn before dropping back into sunlight and a heated splash pool—the epitome of an adrenaline rush.
Yet for a few moments at the top of the slide—just before the attendant says "go"—it's easy for riders to forget they're inside a water park. The setting could easily come from a postcard. Slidewaters sits just off the shores of Lake Chelan, with national forests and the rolling hills of the Chelan Butte visible in the distance. Luckily, the park makes it easy to relax and soak in the view. A lazy river takes inner tubes and their passengers on leisurely floats around a 500-foot loop, while the 100-degree waters of a hot tub welcome up to 60 individuals or up to 30 identical twins at a time.
At some point, the call of adventure pulls visitors to one of the more thrilling rides, many of which cater to families. The Tube Blaster sends double tubes and their riders through multiple 360 turns, while the Downhill Racer lets three siblings or friends simultaneously coast on mats towards the finish line. Nearby, the Aqua Zoo welcomes younger kids and their parents, who can help toddlers down two animal-themed slides.
That's just what takes place in the water. Here are a few drier things to do: play a game of volleyball, grab a hot dog at the snack stand, or choose from more than 100 temporary air-brush tattoos.
