A Day at Fallsview Waterpark
Throughout this long and snowy winter in Toronto, we found ourselves longing for sunshine and swimming pools, palm trees and lounge chairs. But since we couldn't hop on a plane and make a quick escape to a tropical island, we jumped into our car and drove a couple of hours south west to Fallsview Waterpark in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
The outdoor temperature was still frigid when we arrived in Niagara Falls, but the indoor temperature was set to a warm 30 degrees inside the Fallsview Waterpark. So, we put on our swim suits, found ourselves some beach chairs, and headed straight for the water slides.
Fallsview Waterpark is part of North America's largest indoor waterpark, hotel, and entrainment complex. Fallsview Waterpark features a Tidal Wave Pool, sixteen water slides, hot springs, and play areas including a Niagara-sized tipping bucket, Tiny Tots Park, and a dry option called Jungle Beach Playground (located on the second floor).
Children under the age of 2 are free and other family members can purchase day passes. Or you can book a getaway package deal and stay at one of the on-site hotels with direct indoor connection to Fallsview Waterpark. These hotels include Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview Hotel, and the Skyline Inn Niagara Falls.
There are lockers and life jackets available for rental. Towels are complimentary to all guests.
Planet Hollywood Beach Club is located inside the waterpark for snack and lunch breaks.
We visited on a bustling Saturday afternoon and there were plenty of families enjoying the water activities. However, plan for a weekday visit if you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere.
