But Baby, It's Cold Outside
There's snow on the ground, but there are riders in the water slide tubes at Castaway Bay. Indoor water parks offer year-round, weather-proof fun. The enclosed water slide tubes, which begin and end inside the climate-controlled, 84-degree park, remain warm even when it's frigid outside. Indoor water parks like Castaway Bay send some of their water slides outside the building to save valuable interior space.
The compact wave pool serves up some fairly decent waves. Although Castaway bay is fairly small in terms of total area among indoor water parks (it is 38,000 square feet), it uses its space wisely and packs in a lot of features.
If you are curious about larger indoor water parks (many are considerably bigger than the one at Cedar Point), see my feature, A Lotta Water: Who Has the Biggest Indoor Water Park?
It wouldn't be a Cedar Point experience without a coaster, right? The Rendezvous Run uphill water coaster at Castaway Bay uses water jets to propel its rafts uphill. It is an odd sensation to accelerate uphill. It's no Top Thrill Dragster, however the short, but sweet ride delivers a great experience with some impressive airtime.
My Bucket's Got a Hole in It
Castaway Bay's Lookout Lagoon Funhouse lets loose every two minutes with a torrent of water from its tipping bucket. Guests standing underneath the bucket get drenched (of course).
Lotsa Ways to Get Wet
The Lookout Lagoon Funhouse is an interactive water play structure loaded with gizmos and gadgets to soak you and everyone around you.
Kids test their balance, coordination, and agility while having fun on the park's Cargo Crossings.
Lots of Dribbling
At the Creature Cove activity pool, guests can play water basketball, hang around on the funny water floats, and watch a giant TV.
Slide in the Tide
Many of the slides and attractions at the water park are a bit heavy on the thrills (this is a Cedar Point facility after all), but there are plenty of activities for smaller guests as well. The Toddler's Tide Pool includes an octopus slide.
Indoor water parks are sunlight-proof as well as weather-proof. While most outdoor water parks close at dusk, parks like Castaway Bay typically stay open until 10 p.m. year-round.
