The ABQ Surf N' Slide indoor water park at Hotel Cascada is comparatively small. But it does offer a surprising number of attractions that'll get you and your park posse wet -- and a bit wild. It is the only indoor facility in New Mexico and therefore the only place in the state to find year-round, weatherproof, water park fun.
ABQ Surf N' Slide does, however, feature a FlowRider wave simulator. By generating powerful jets of water, the attraction allows water park guests on boogie boards and Flowboards to challenge never-ending waves for both body and stand-up surfing. The park offers surfing lessons on its FlowRider for an additional fee.
For moderate thrills, the park also has two water slides, one that uses rafts, and one for inner tubes. Other attractions include a lazy river, an interactive water play structure with a tipping bucket, an indoor/outdoor whirlpool spa, and an activity pool with water basketball. For younger kids, there is a wading pool.
