Water Parks in Minnesota – Indoor and Outdoor

swimming-at-water-parkMy original thoughts, when getting in to the water park industry was that the northern part of the United States would be a barren waste land in the terms of water parks. Boy was I ever wrong. Minnesota is loaded.

While it may not have the amount of outdoor water parks that some of the southern states have, they more then make up for it in the way of the indoor version. With close to a dozen indoor water parks, Minnesota has something for everyone.

Indoor and Outdoor parks offer similar rides and attractions just in a different scale. There is nothing quite like being inside, cruising down a water slide as it is snowing outside.

Below you are going to find information on water parks in Minnesota. At the beginning of each description is a link to the full information page about that park.
