Wicked Waves Cape Cod

Exciting enough for the older ones but tame enough for the little tykes, this water park promises fun for any age. We mean grownups, too, with cabanas for rent, multiple food options, and even an adults-only swim-up bar. (Parents will also appreciate that the water is monitored and tested for cleanliness throughout the day.) Even more reason to skip the beach: This season, Wicked Waves is unveiling five new slides that promise to twirl, undulate, and discombobulate in equal measure.
