The publication released a list of the top 10 indoor water parks in the United States on Friday. The list includes Great Wolf Lodge Resorts, which has a location in Fitchburg at No. 7, and Kahuna Laguna Indoor Water Park in North Conway, NH, at No. 8.
“Whether it’s snowing outside or it’s too hot to play outside, indoor water parks provide an opportunity for fun in the water no matter the time of year,” USA Today wrote.
There are 19 Great Wolf Lodge Resorts locations in the United States and Canada, and its 20th resort is under construction in Perryville, Maryland.
Kahuna Laguna is located on the grounds of Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, which is temporarily closed due to a massive fire. Kahuna Laguna said a reopening date will be released in the future.
“The resorts’ water parks include seasonal indoor and outdoor activities such as tube rides, wave pools, water slides, hot tubs and surf simulators,” according to USA Today.
The list is part of the publication’s 2022 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
