Among the fun things to do at FunCity Burlington is Huck's Harbor, an indoor and outdoor water park. Regardless of the weather, you and your clan could don your bathing suits and enjoy the water slides and other wet activities at the climate-controlled indoor park. When the weather cooperates during the warmer months, the outdoor slides and attractions increase the opportunities to splash.
By indoor water park standards, Huck's Harbor is quite small: only 20,000 square feet. The centerpiece at the converted indoor pool is an interactive water play station with sprayers, slides, and a dump bucket. The park also offers two water slides, Tom's Twister and the Red Rage, as well as a small lazy river, a wading pool, activities for young children, and a whirlpool.
When the outdoor water park is open, the rides available include a bowl slide, a lazy river, body and tube slides, and Kiddie City Jr., a water play area for young children. There is also a wading pool and an activity pool. Neither the indoor or outdoor facilities offer any of the high-profile attractions found at larger water parks such as a water coaster or a funnel ride. Huck's Harbor is a good place to seek some relief from the summer heat or a respite from winter's woes, however.
