Family Water fun is at the top of the kids list for fun things to do in Rapid City!
Before this opened up there really was no place to go in the winter time. Around here that equates to half a year with no swimming recreation...boo to that...yaa for Watiki!
Finding family water fun at Watiki Water Park is easy!
This place is HUGE, really, this place is enormous! I mean, really really big! Did I mention this place is BIG?? We are talking over 30,000 Sq. Ft. of big (glad I don't have to pay the utility bills here, oiy!).
We love the fact that it is always really warm in here, no matter what the temperature is outside. The water is the same way, always warm, pleasant and absolutely lovely.
You and the kids will all have a blast here, and that is true whether you can only stay for a few hours or the kids make you stay the whole day! Family water fun= water logged, and for kids that means super fun times and memories!
Watiki Water Park really thought of it all when they built this place, except maybe it's success! In 2012 they have announced that they are EXPANDING the park...whoohoo!
They are taking family water fun to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!
Starting in 2013 they will be adding a surfing wave pool. This new addition will DOUBLE it's size to a whopping 70,000 Sq Ft of FUN!! This project will be complete in 2014. See the plans here.
We can't WAIT this will take our family water fun to a whole new level!
The Adults will appreciate the hundreds of chairs and tables to sit at and read, or work, while the kids play.
If you get hungry while you are there you do not have to go far to get fabulous food!
They have an onsite restaurant and bar called Sliders that makes awesome food. We especially love the roast beef sandwiches and fries.
You may also like the fact that you can have an adult beverage while you relax, work, or read.
If Restaurant food isn't in the budget, all day-every day then I will mention here that there is a McDonalds right next door, and an Arbys right across the Street.
You are not allowed to bring in outside food, but you ARE allowed to come and go freely as you like with your wristband for the whole day.
Check out this huge screen TV in the bar! If you look closely, you will also see that the yellow slide "breaks" just to the bottom left of the TV screen. This is where you can see your kids go shooting thru the slide. You are welcome to catch a game, have a beverage and watch the TV while the older kids slide.
The full service bar is available to the Watiki patrons. Eating and drinking is allowed in the area where you find all the tables and chairs, outside of the bar area also.
Oh, it is worth mentioning that you will be grateful for the beverages and hot tub/and or chairs available.
After your kids drag you up and down the massive flights of stairs a few times, you will need the break! Unless you are a triathlete currently training for a triathlon that is. =)
