Most people would likely associate Colorado with winter sports: skiing in one of Colorado's many ski resorts, snowshoeing on mountain trails, and even ice skating in one of many facilities throughout the state. What, though, about the summer? There is no need to worry about that, there are still a number of great attractions for the heat of summer. Perhaps the most exciting of these is Water World USA.
With the view of the mountains and pine trees of the rural Front Range surrounding it, Colorado water world is the best place to catch summer time fun in the sun and surf. Water world is one of the nation's best water parks, and one of the Denver area's greatest attractions. With twenty three rides located on 64 acres, Water World is fun in the surf even if you are in the middle of the Mountain West region of the United States. Water World USA offers rides and fun for all ages.
Water World is also considered one of the best entertainment values in the state. For $27.95 per adult, $23.95 per child, and no charge for those under three years of age, you get a full day of fun in the sun. The only additional costs in the park save for souvenirs are for the recommended locker rental and food if you need it. Water World is also friendly in letting patrons bring in picnics with restrictions on only alcohol (none allowed) and glass containers. The park is open all summer from Memorial Day weekend until sometime around Labor Day (depending on weather).
For adults, or the "bigger kids," the highlight of Colorado Water World is likely the Lost River of Pharaohs. This Water World favorite takes passengers into the dark, down the river, through an Egyptian pyramid, and past a mummy. The ride's climax comes when the passengers are sent down into a spiral slide. Bigger children and children at heart alike will love this Water World staple.
Smaller children will get a big thrill out of Voyage to the Center of The Earth. Voyage to the Center of The Earth is the greatest Water World ride for your young children. In this ride, the passengers feel as if they are floating under ground. Children will get a real thrill when they are then introduced to Water World's animatronic dinosaurs.
The entire family can certainly enjoy Water World. With the largest variety of water attractions in America, there is always something for everyone. 2005 marked Water World USA's 26th year in operation, which attests to the popularity of this family attraction. With thrill rides, the most family tube rides among US parks, and an aquatic fun area for the tots, Water World doesn't disappoint. If you are in the mood for a family picnic, there are plenty of areas available including grassy areas and covered pavilions.
So don't give in to the temptation to sell summers in Colorado short. The state does have a lot to offer in the winter from skiing to snowshoeing, but summer has its fun too. Water World, in Denver, offers some of the best summer fun in not only the state of Colorado, but also in the whole United States. So go to Denver in the summer and give Water World a try for wet and wild family fun.
