Paul Bunyan Water Park at The Lodge at Brainerd Lakes

The Lodge at Brainerd Lakes


The Paul Bunyan Waterpark is a medium-sized indoor water park with a lazy river, body slides, and an interactive water play structure. Unlike most parks' opaque tubes, the body slide is made of clear acrylic, so riders can see sunlight--and snow falling durting the winter--as they whoop and holler through the chute.

The park's most unique feature is its themed tube slide, which offers riders a choice of holographic images, lights, and sounds. Guests seeking solace will appreciate the indoor-to-outdoor hot tub and the heated outdoor patio floor (because nobody likes cold feet, especially after exiting a cozy hot tub).

The Lodge at Brainerd Lakes also offers over 100 guest rooms, many of them suites, as well as an arcade with redemption games, conference facilities, and a restaurant.

Paul Bunyan Water Park is one of many indoor water parks in Minnesota.
