Water parks

If you need to cool off, there is no shortage of pools, water parks, and even a beach in Branson! There are many indoor facilities including several indoor water parks now open in Branson.

Branson White Water features 13 beautifully landscaped acres of summertime fun in a tropical atmosphere that includes a 800 foot long Aloha River at Hula Bay with 300,000 gallons of twisting, turning family fun. The half-million gallon Surf’s Up Wave Pool offers hours of fun, and the Kalani Towers super slide rises 7 stories in the air, or you can try the Pipeline Plunge speed slides. Another favorite activity is to stand under the 700-gallon bucket of water at Splashaway Cay, or sit back and watch all the fun while sipping on a delicious beverage and snacking on some great food.

For inexpensive summertime fun for the entire family, check out Moonshine Beach on beautiful Table Rock Lake. Operated by the U.S. Corps Of Engineers, this is one of the most affordable attractions in Branson. This huge man made beach with readily available restroom and shower facilities offers a daily carload rate and you can enter and leave the grounds throughout the day. Swim in the morning, catch a show or bite to eat, then come back and enjoy another swim in the evening. Take plenty of sunscreen, and for the most enjoyment take a pair of good in water slipover pool shoes. The lake has a rock bottom and entering and leaving the water is much more pleasant with pool shoes. The water is always clean and comfortable at Moonshine Beach.

A couple of the most popular indoor water parks are the Castle Rock Resort & Water Park (http://wwww.castlerockbranson.com) and Grand Country Inn (http://www.grandcountry.com). Castle Rock features 2 three-story water slides, two 500 gallon dump buckets, several indoor and outdoor activity pools, a lazy river and more. Grand Country features an Indoor and Outdor Waterpark full of family fun and excitement any time of year.

The Grand Country Indoor Waterpark features a three-level Treehouse with a 1,000 gallon tipping bucket that rains down on those below every 8 minutes like clockwork, a Basketball Play Pool, Toddler Pool, 250 ft. Lazy River, and an adult and child Melting Pot Spa.

If you get hungry, catch a bite at the Mining Company Grill.
