Find Year-Round Indoor Water Park Fun in Ohio

Water Park Resorts in Sandusky and Across the State

Just as indoor water parks have opened throughout the Midwest and around the nation, quite a few of them have come to Ohio. In fact, some of the world's biggest and best places to get wet can be found in the state, especially in the Sandusky area.

The Lake Erie vacation spot is, of course, home to the world-famous amusement park, Cedar Point. With the growing number of water parks in Sandusky (one of which is operated by Cedar Point itself), there is more fun to be had than the lakeside park's renowned collection of roller coasters and thrill rides. And since the indoor parks are weatherproof, the fun now continues year-round.

Discover where to get wet throughout Ohio. All of the parks are part of resorts and offer hotel accommodations. Day passes are available where noted. The resorts are arranged alphabetically.
